Jack Sprat Could Eat No Fat...

Have you ever been in a relationship where your partner is on a get fit/lose weight program?

Well welcome to my life.  I am very proud of Snr for losing over 16kgs.  He is now at our starting weight from when we first met over 17 years ago..fark that makes us sound old.

Can you see where this post is going.  I am not at my starting weight.  Nor do I think I ever will be.  If you have read any of my posts over the years you will know that I am an out and proud lazy ass. 

If at the end of a long hard weekend I have left a warm arse indent on the couch well my heart could not be prouder.  If I have a cocktail in one hand and a wedge of cheese in the other, you can't wipe the grin off my face.  As much as I hate winter, in my house winter equals puddings for dessert...squeeeeeeallll.

As much as I would love to lose these pesky 10kgs to get me back to my starting weight my love of food and wine, my lack of inclination, motivation and a whole stack of other words ending ation prevent me from doing so.

So Jack Sprat good for you but me,  well I could eat no lean.

Do you feel guilty about your current weight or exercise regime or are you like me and  do you accept it and embrace it?

How's that working out for you - an update in 2011

Okay so my blogging has been sporadic and boring at best of late.  I tend to read a LOT of blogs.  I feel almost stalkerish and that I "know" these people and that me popping around and laying on their couch reading their magazines and drinking their alcohol and eating their food would be okay.  Sadly they would call the police on me and well lets face it, it would be weird.

So this morning I was reading through a few old posts and came across this post in 2009 of a bunch of resolutions but not really resolutions to achieve that year.

**to do the Couch to 5km running plan like my good friend Jodes (note to self buy some joggers).  I bought the joggers.  Two years later they still have that new shoe smell and look fantastic, that is probably due to the fact that they have been worn twice for jogging/walking purposes.  I also bought a cheap watch/stopwatch thingo as I didn't really want to run any longer than I had too.  It too is still going great guns.  The running well lets just say that I have the couch part down pat.

**do more sewing (note to self - you do not need anymore fabric you have enough to clothe a small village)
Yeah that didn't happen at all.  I did have to drag it out to sew on some patches for Ruby's Little Athletics shirt that she sooooo desperately wanted to join and went to 2 yes 2 sessions.  She shows great committment to things just like her mama.  The machine  is now gathering dust in the garage.

**be calmer and not wig out over the little things (note to self get some valium or stock up on some good bubbles)
Be wiggier and not calm.  Tick got that bit right...oh what you mean be calm and not wig out..oh sorry I failed in that department too.  Though I was very proud of the fact that I did not let out one single swear word when the "I didn't put the lid on my drink bottle properly incident" of last week resulted in wet jumpers, hats and a puddle in the boot of the car.  The fact that I was in the carpark of the school with lots of parents around had absolutely nothing to do with that, at all.

**follow a good skincare regime (note to self you ain't getting any younger this is a must)
Still not getting any younger - tick got that bit right.
Still pretty adhoc but I am getting better.  I bought all the good (read expensive) stuff and it looks nice and pretty in my bathroom. 

**return dvd's on time (note to self you cannot keep relying on your namesake - yes there is another Ellie Mae out there and she works at my local Blockbuster - to keep deleting your late fees because she feels some kind of kinship to you)
Wanted posters are now appearing in 4 out of 5 of my local video shops (I am old I still call DVD shops video stores).  I have taken to watching stuff on you tube and buying DVD's.  Hello Johnathon Rhy Meyers in the Tudors.

**write Christmas cards this year (note to self don't make it 3 years running with no cards sent)
I think I may have sent cards in 2009.  But I didn't in 2010 and I probably wont this year either.  Does a message on Facebook count?
