Did you have a great 4th of July holiday?!
Whut? It’s the 10th already?
And me, still not bikini ready 🙁
Oh, let’s get real.
I’m not even underwired, black one piece with a pleated skort ready.
As Pinterest loves to remind me on a daily basis.
and yet, casting my memory back to Christmas when my older son’s adorable girlfriend “C” bought me the Nike Fuel Band I was so chuffed.
I thought Wow-this is going to be GUHREAT!!
No more pocket for my old pedometer (and it going through the wash every other month) my new Nike band would also tell me the time, number of steps I was taking, and amount of “fuel” and calories consumed/expended each day
(but we’re not going to talk about that part. You lost me at calori…ZZZZZZzzzzzz)
Pretty cool, right? ( also comes in black)
What I didn’t realise was that Nike was not only going to set outrageously, preposterously, Herculean, nay Sisyphean “GOALS” for me,
it was also going to spy on me. And be cruel about it.
I mean could that O% get any bigger?? WTF?
I wonder if they’re sharing Slim’s FAILURE information with the government?
It’s not as if I haven’t been active…
Rock climbing(ish) in Utah in May
And as my Instagram account will attest, I’ve climbed to the top of the peaks of Montecito more than a few times.
Which means twice in truth speak.
I’ve done plenty of yoga…
yet I’m O for how many days and counting.
Unlike my dear friend who posted this on her Instagram page.
Apparently it takes climbing Machu Picchu to achieve the “Full Rainbow”
and a well deserved glass of wine.
Well, I’ll show you Nike Dudes
I’m getting to the red zone if it kills me
this next week.
Speaking of failures…
I still haven’t painted that damn vintage chandelier hot pink yet and then this popped up on Pinterest.
Nike and bloody Pinterest. They’re gunning for me.
Don’t get me wrong, I love Pinterest. Just check out that cute painted floor!
I’d love it even more if I’d been a ground floor investor, but as I’ve never invested in anything, I can’t be bitter about that.
It’s just that you can never quite predict how you’re going to feel after a tip-toe (marathon) thru “Pinterest” am I right?
I’m INSPIRED!! I’m so unproductive.
I’m redoing the laundry room! I hate my body. I should knit! Would it kill me to juice more?
Lauren Santa Domingo’s so cool. My mom never braided my hair. I can’t live without that hot pink garden hose.
Look, I saw it, now you have to deal with it…
I should ombre’ my hair
I need a portable chain saw
I should wear heels more. How do they get the jello to separate like that?
and the biggest one of all (and my current screen saver)
How did we EVER live without salt in our caramel??
Unsalted caramel is like the MySpace of confections
and on that note,
JUST DO IT 🙂
