Friday Freak Out

IN THE NEWS: "Everyone needs some chicken soup for the soul , even pandas.
The Wuhan Zoo in central China has been feeding its two pandas home-cooked chicken soup twice in a month to reduce stress and give them a nutritional boost, a zoo official said Friday." Read more

I'm late posting. I know. But I was at the gym doing a little extra workout. Why? you might ask. Because today I found out that my sweatpants are tight. Uh-huh. That's right. Let me repeat.

My. Sweatpants. Are. TIGHT.

Sweatpants! Tight! What's up with that? I'm at the gym regularly. I do weights. I eat healthy. How in the world did this happen??????

The only thing I can think of is those dang green smoothies. Yes, they're pumping me full of vitamins but it's all going to my rear end. OK. I need to step back and analyze this...

Think brain. Think! Maybe--just maybe-- I don't need all that honey I use when I make them. I can live without the sweetness. And I guess, one instead two bananas would be just as good for me, too. That must be the problem. My recipes will have to be tweaked. Or I'll be the healthiest obese woman around.

In other chit-chat, I wrote 910 of my 1,000 word goal yesterday. (Yes, thank you. I'm happy for me too)

Also, I started Single Sashimi by Camy Tang the other night and finished it in about 5 hours. That's 326 pages in 5 hours. So, yes, I guess you can safely assume I liked the book. :)

More writing for me today. I'm about a chapter and a half from finishing this stupid--er, I mean great story.

Have a great weekend!

No political blog? That's what everyone blogged about this morning so it's nice to see one that's not!!! And the post cracked me up about the sweatpants. The healthiest obese that even possible? ;oD I hear weight watchers is taking new clients. HA! GOTCHA!

Loved your post. You made me smile. And great news about almost meeting your writing goal for yesterday! Awesome! I loved what you said about finishing your stupid or great story - I feel that way when I get close to finishing something. LOL

Have a nice weekend, Jennifer!

I'm so glad you liked my book! But wow you read fast!

I can SO relate to the tight sweatpants thing. I am hopelessly off my diet after being on deadline the past month. Can you say, copious amounts of M&Ms to spark creativity????? Argh!

Good luck on finishing your novel! You can do it!

Oh, I feel your pain. I wore jeans fresh out of the dryer today and I was doing deep knee bends to get them to loosen up so that they didn't look as if they were plastered to my body!

You're doing great with the reading and the writing. Hang in there with the diet and ask for a nutritional guide at the smoothie place. I know Smoothie King has a list of all the drinks they make with a list of ingredients, calories, etc.
