The days of May, Day 4

So the other day my mom and I were having an "anything you can eat I can eat unhealthier" conversation. It went a little something like this.

"I had a piece of pizza and a bowl of frosted mini wheats for lunch. At least the 'frosted' included a little wheat."
"I ate KFC for dinner. At least I got grilled and not deep fried chicken."
"I had chocolate chip cookies for dinner."
"I ate an entire bag of chocolate chips for lunch."

I'm not going to tell you who won, frankly it's easier for me to pretend this whole exchange was between a couple of strangers on their first day of Biggest Loser. A show my mom and I would rather not be eligible for if we can help it.

But you may be thinking, "um Mari? I thought you started p90x a few months ago. According to those commercials you should be in the best shape of your life right now." Well, let's just say it was going great but then my parents came to visit and then Logan got more demanding and well the 90 part sorta turned into 27 or so and before you can say "Tony Horton" 4 months went by and I'm back where I started.

One might say I lack motivation.


I'm getting back on the horse though with two specific goals in mind.

1) Eat better
2) Exercise more

Okay, so it's not exactly a 12 step program but ever since my mom and I confessed our sins to each other I've been living a healthier life. I've even lost 2 lbs which I wasn't expecting but you won't hear me complaining about that one. I think the key to my success so far is that my mom and I are continuing to report everything we do to each other with the promise that if we're good, a shopping trip could be in our near future.

I have to admit that talking about healthy food isn't nearly as fun as the scandalous junk food was but I'm pretty sure my arteries appreciate it.

So, no more luckies for breakfast, only cheerios now.



  1. Yay Mari! Keep it up child! I lost two pounds too! I feel new shoes in our future!

  2. You are hilarious. Go Tony Horton!
