When it rains, it snows
This is what comes of blogging about the spring. I write, “Spring is coming—hooray!” And the Universe responds with, “Winter storm is coming—expect snow!”
In an act of rebellion, I decided to wear a skirt yesterday while the sun still shone as a way of letting the Universe know it can’t get me down.
HOLY MOTHER OF GOD I think my legs went numb as soon as I stepped outside. Yesterday morning’s temps rivaled the record lows for today set in 1888. But seeing as I was running late for the bus (I literally ran), I couldn’t go back upstairs and change, so I went with it.
Take that, Universe.
More Than Just a Cookie
I signed up for a workshop today that will teach me how to make “healthy” cookies. It’s free, and I assume we’ll get to try the cookies afterward. That was a big selling point for me, not realizing when I signed up that it takes place in the middle of Lent. (Lent = no dessert)
This cookie-making workshop will be my wilderness.
By the way, my mom texted me last night and told me there’s a new diet that promises you can eat chocolate in order to lose weight. I would love for this to be true, but it sounds suspect.
“Researchers say eating chocolate burns* the same way exercise does,” my mom wrote.
*I assume she meant “burns calories,” or else the researchers appear to be eating chocolate incorrectly.
I feel like if this were true, I would be abnormally thin. People would be shoving Snickers bars in my face, only to watch me further disappear. Thus, I don’t believe it’s true.
However, I will happily volunteer to try to it out, as long as there isn’t a lot of cooking involved.
I’m officially certified to teach Blast at the gym now. It only took 90 days, a back injury, one failed filming attempt, and two official classes to get the video created. But I received notice that I passed the test, so now I can go forth and be awkward like this for dozens of people!
