Behavior Modification

Yesterday was a really awful day of food consumption, a blissful day of shopping and a lazy day of running. I must control myself and not let this obstinate naughtiness continue. Today's entry will be brief as I am following the 17th commandment Thou shall not blog with PMS.

I've started off the day right: a good butt camp and lf cottage cheese with coffee for breakfast. My weight is at 127 today. If I can behave myself, I know I can get into the 125 arena by the end of the end of next week, something I haven't been able to accomplish in over 2 years. Lunch will consist of some kind of chicken salad. After work I have a five-mile run scheduled.

Dinner? Sigh. Dinner will be tricky since tonight is date night. If I maintain a moderate alcohol consumption, I should have the ability to choose a healthy meal. (Translation: more salad - less wine - no fun). Tonight I will also attempt to follow the 16th commandment Thou shall not blog drunk.

Here's to a successful day!

I think you should throw those commandments out the window. Both have the potential to make for some very interesting reading! :)

Here's to hoping you see 125 in the near future! :)

Susan, no winking at the restaurant customers! Close both eyes, pretend you are blind, and have Michael lead you out. It's that easy!
Besides, it's hard to post when there is more than one monitor swimming around in front of you.

See, you're blogging with PMS and making no sense. Less wine? Sober blogging? Where's the real Susan?

Congrats on the weight loss -- I'm jealous!

I think we need a complete commandment list. I don't do too well with the first 10, so maybe the next 10 will be better :)

I love those blog commandments, you had me starting to look for the whole list, but then I had to revert to one of my own commandments "Thou shalt not spend the whole day blogging!"

Nobody told me about the 16th commandment, oh oh. I might have broke that one a time or two. sorry. penance?

Cottage cheese and coffee for breakfast...(I'll take the coffee, but give me something else with it please!)
And what is wrong with 127????
That's what I weigh! (and people call me skinny.)

Great job on dropping those pounds. Alcohol (mainly beer) tends to be my weight downfall too! Wine is probably a lot better for you though so I wouldn't worry too much.

Glad I'm not the only one who says, "I'll just have a salad. Oh, and 2 bottles of wine, please!" ;)

I'm happy for you to be so near 125! That's awesome!

Shopping while under the influence of PMS can also be quite dangerous!! Congrats on the weight loss!

I should post the 17th Commandment on my computer screen. Way to go on the weight! That is awesome!!!

And yes, I got a Triks skirt. It is fabulous. I'd say you should get one as a weight-loss reward :)

Here it is Wednesday night and we have not heard from the skinny drunken shopping addicted salad sloth who occasionally runs known as Susan. Do we think she followed her plan?
My guess is the PMS took over. Fortunately the weight should drop after all this and she'll be a happy blogger again really soon.
Stand by sports fans. I think we have a report coming in from SusanWorld.

Wow, 127!! My goal...so close yet so far and never around:) Great going! And if you like to drink - heck, that's what you do! Besides, it seems like we all love reading your drunk note, especially about dates (when was that last time? even longer than 127lb)

I must be a ubersexual becoz I happen to know that Wine + salad = sangria. Enjoy! :)

Me, I am actually trying to gain weight now, so I have a PBJ every morning for breakfast.

Are you in bad shape when your friends like you better drunk? C mon people, we need to encourage Susan towards her goals, not our selfish gratification that comes with the blogging of drunken date nate Susan.

I did hear that cosmoploitans are a great antidote for PMS though. :)
