“When I met you in the restaurant, you could tell I was no debutante, you asked me what’s my pleasure, a movie or a measure, I’ll have a cup of tea and tell you of my dreaming, dreaming is free.” ~Blondie

Day #5 Friday, Jan. 16,2015

Your mind can play some very weird tricks on you….especially when under the influence of painkillers and lack of sleep. I took some Advil P.M. last night due to a wicked bad toothache that my former dentist attempted to fix FIVE times, and failed miserably. I’m trying to get hooked up with a new masochist….ummmm, I mean dentist, but in the meantime I am self-medicating.

As you may or not know, part of Max’s 6-week challenge is NO CARBS. So last night I must have really wanted some starchy potato-filled goodness because  I dreamt that I was chewing up delicious, crispy, crunchy,salty potato chips, just for the flavor, and then spitting them out so as not to break my no carb diet. See? Even in my dreams I am dedicated. You can take the potatoes away from the Irish lass, but you can’t make her like it. Like Blondie said, “Dreaming is free,” and dreaming of eating chips is carb free so it’s a win-win for everyone.

Whoever said, “Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels” clearly never tasted salt and vinegar Lay’s potato chips…. and needs to be bitch slapped from here to eternity. Yes, I may be a little cranky today. Blame it on the Bossa Nova, or the rain, or the boogie, whichever you prefer. I am blaming it on the lack of serotonin and lack of alcohol to take the edge off of this very stressful day.

We brought home my bouncing baby boy from the hospital today, all 19-year-old appendixlessness of him. He was so positive and had such a great attitude when we were at the hospital for the last 4 days…. and as soon as we got him home? BOOM! Smells like teen angst. And I also have a roller-coaster-full-of-emotions teen girl to deal with to boot. YAY ME!

But I won’t give up or give in, not on Day 5. No way. Even if my scale DID go back to her normal way-too-honest self today. Yes, today I walk in pain with every step and remind myself of an all-too-true fitness cliché: “no pain no gain.” I will get there. All in due time.
