Sorry, I forgot to put up my OLTA update yesterday.

I gained a pound damn it. Sayre and Factor - HUSH. LOL

It really isn't my fault. I blame Charles. He came back from NC with a German Chocolate cake. He also came back with Out Of This World Cookies. Everything was home made and scrumptious.

I didn't want to eat all of that stuff. He made me do it. He forced the yummy moistness of the cake past my lips. He crushed cookies into itty bitty crumbs, shoved a funnel down my throaght and made me swallow.

I was outraged. I couldn't believe he would sabatage me in that way. I'm hurt beyond all words (are you buying any of this? I'm curious - cause I'm laying this on pretty thick).

I took drastic measures to lose some of these terrible calories that have magically turned to fat and attached themselves to my rearend. Do you want to know what I did?


I have often passed a group of builders swarming over a skeleton home and knew that it was hard work, and felt sorry for them working in the heat, but never really gave much more thought than that to it. The only thing I can say at the moment is OUCH.


My ass hurts. My legs hurt (specifically my hamstrings). My wrist hurts. My back hurts. My knees are killing me. I'm one big ball of whiney pain.

Do you feel sorry for me?


You are wrong. Just wrong.

Huh? What was that?

SHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!! Don't tell anyone it's really all my fault. I'm looking for sympathy points here. What do you mean you aren't giving me any?

Fine, see if I share my cake....I MEAN...see if Charles shares his cake with you. Yeah...his cake....

You're excused for cake. let's not be ridiculous. its cake we're talking about here.

Oh, yeah.....Poor baby! You know what you need for all those aches and pains? Ice cream. Lots of ice cream.

I'm sorry, I can't come up with a smart-ass comment at the moment.

Damn! With me it's that delicious dark beer and kettle chips. I too have been trying to get toned. It's amazing how lazy I get without some military instructor yelling and motivating me ;)

R. will be home from Iraq in 2 weeks, and I could definitely stand to lose a few pounds.

Sorry about your pound. I don't think I did well this week either. I have been kind of ill and it stopped me from my workouts a few days.

Seriously, it's just a minor setback... it's will be gone again soon enough.

of course I meant "it'll"...

HK - the only way that's going to do me any good is if I slather it on my sore muscels....CHARLES!!!!

Sayre - hehehehehe

Victoria - I know what you mean about having someone in your face yelling at you, and I TICKLED that R will be home soon. You've got to be about to bust with joy.

Sam - he is very bad. I should punish him. YEAH! I'll punish him.

I'm gonna cook dinner.

Jeff - everyone is sick these past couple of weeks. Feel better soon and worry about the work out later.

Anna - do you really expect me to say something about spleling or grammer?? LOL

Maybe if you remove some of the shingle that lodged in your skin you'll lose a few ounces.

Why shingle your roof (pardon my ignorance of home-adorning rituals in the southern US of A)?

Try making a BIG POO POO and weighing yourself again. (Off course this would be MY advice, right?!)

Good thing I don't like coconut, lol.

Eat in moderation. Yes, even the sweets. It's okay if you gained a pound, it happens. Now go shingle 2 rooves and lose some extra weight!

Hey nikki, dont be worrying over one pound..I went up and down the same damn pound all week.. as for cake mmmm yummy ...I do not believe in denying yourself the yummies... Just try to go for a 20 min. walk or something in order to burn it off etc...
Keep in mind your weight is not really a good indicator of how you are doing as if you are excercising you can build your muscles and tone your body which will actually in many cases increase your weight on the scale..even though your clothes will fit better..

Now go and gobble up more cake and cookies...and ..well..if you don't then go and excercise to burn off those calories that is up to you..haha ....guess then I may be the winner ...nananana...

keep your chin up !!( or chins) LOL ..j/k. have a good week .

p.s. I cannot believe how much damn trouble I am still having with freakin blogger and finding everyones posts etc. and my own ..arggggg ...

Shingling a shed roof? Are you crazy, woman????

This is THAT week--the one that will separate the faint hearted from the strong...I think everyone wobbled over the holiday--at least you burned those calories on the shingles!

At Wednesday, September 06, 2006 12:29:00 PM, Blogger Nikki said...

Dr Joe - Um, I don't know how you folks over there do it, but over here, the general idea is this - you have a frame for the house, you put up plyboard sheets, roll out some felt over it, put shingles over top. what do you do?

Kat - A lot of muscle? Hummmmm, I'll go for that - I'm pretty good at deluding myself LOL

OTJ - Hubby suggested the same thing. LOL

Blair - No way Jose! I'm walking like I'm 80 these days. LOL

Weight Watchers points, I can do. Sympathy points, not so much. ;-)

Sorry about the pound. I too am struggling with one that made its way back home.

Sometimes the body gains just before a "big" loss...

Are you buying that? It's somewhat tru...

ROOFING??? Have you lost your mind? This is most definatly a "guy" job!!!!

You are not allowed to have your cake and eat it too.

I'm with happykat. You earned it. And besides, what good is cake without ice cream anyway? I'm just saying.

I came through Christina... can't figure out why she'd want to kick your ... anyway, how many calories do you think your burned while roofing? Maybe I should try that for my next weightloss venture! ha ha

I've got some birthday cake with yummy butter-cream icing! And some ice cream to go with it. You just need to take a looooong rest on the couch with your feet up,having some cake. True. True.

Just saying, "cake" makes me happy.

Nikki - send Raul would you? Express mail.

Kim - it's more like hear me roar in pain. LOL

Rain - You know all that military stuff you collect? Yeah well, I can make it work, and it might accidentally go off while pointed in your general direction. LOL

Christina - I have dog poo in my back yard that needs to be cleaned up. Get to work.

Quinn - I know what you mean about blogger - I hate it. Hopefully soon I'll be making a move.

Los - why yes, yes I am..just don't tell anyone...and hubby was there with me to make sure I didn't screw up to badly. LOL

Factor - I doubt I be doing it again anytime soon...the shingles I mean. LOL

Les - I always do. LOL It's always the man's fault anyway. LOL

Elle - NO SYMPATHY POINTS??!!!! Well damn. LOL

Super - why not roofing? It was fun. It's been a longggggg time since I've done anything like that and it was fun, until it started to hurt. LOL

Me - EVIL LAUGHTER??!!! E Tu Brute?

Dirty - damn it! Why'd you have to go and screw up my fantasy?

Evil Genius - Welcome! I gotta say I LOVE the name. That is FUNNY. I don't think she meant the ice cream for consumption. LOL

Jessica - Welcome! I would have left Christina too. LOL She's so wicked. LOL I wouldn't recommend roofing as a good weight loss exercise unless you have A LOT of pain meds on hand...ie percoset, morphine etc. LOL

Mama C - are you trying to tempt me??? Well, it's working...stop it.LOL

You believe that chit?

Kick her ass! I dare you!

TheMan does that to me, the evil bastard. I mean, really, here I am getting so gorgeously svelt and WHAM! It's bbq ribs and corn bread! And then, then he makes me eat *gasp* cookies and ice cream. OMG, can you believe it? I tell you, there ought to be a law!

Shingled a roof? Way more ambitious than me. TheMan was chopping down a small tree and asked me to come take over for a while. My contribution? One whack and I was done. Honestly, I could've chopped off a finger or something. Sheesh!

You know, though, one single whole pound could just be water gain or something. At least, you could tell yourself that.:)

Urg...if you catch a deleted comment, it was from me, on the wrong friggin' account, being an airhead. You see, I've gone sugar-free in my quest to lose weight and it is seriously causing me to lose braincells.

The comment I should have sent on the right account went something like this:

Dieting sucks. Exersize sucks more. But cake doesn't suck at all.

And now, I am craving some . . .

You shingled a roof. Nikki, you fucking rock. That's all there is to it. You rock and you shingle and you make Charles shiver and tingle. HA! I know, it was stupid, sorry... Although, that was really very cruel and sweet of him at the sametime, to bring home that cake.
