Lucking Out...

I had my second pre-natal appointment on December 26th. This was the one I was worried about - I was certain all those cookies would be coming back to haunt me. Well, I must say that I was lucky. I actually LOST a pound and a half. The interesting thing about being four months pregnant - is that I'm the thinnest I've been in a really long time. Funny how that works.

In Praise of the Office Cookie Tin...

It's my first day back at work, after a brief stint on holiday, and while I was gone it doesn't appear that much happened. I had largely sorted through the few outstanding bits and pieces when it appeared...the variety cookie tin. Sent by a dear man who reps our products, yet whom I don't really know. All I have to say is these are some KICK ASS "cookie tin" cookies. In keeping with the theme of my last post - this cookie tin might be instrumental in pushing me over the edge of weight gain but I just can't help it - I think I'm growing a cookie monster.

On Becoming a Big, Fat Pig...

In one of my literature classes in college we had to do a project that involved selecting a book that had an "impact" on us. Then we basically had to tell the class why. I remember picking "Charlotte's Web" because, as I told the class, I identified with the main character - the loveable pig Wilbur.

It was a joke back then. But now that I'm pregnant I have this fear building inside me...that I'm going to gain a ton of weight and get in trouble with my doctor. Perhaps the fear of gaining weight actually stems from the knowledge that my diet has been crappy the last couple of weeks and soon I'm going to have to face the scale and possibly the music.

I know I'm supposed to eat all kinds of healthy things so the baby is healthy but what I really like is sweets, which I've always loved, but now it seems to be the easiest thing to reach for. I was riding pretty high, that I'd come this far without gaining a pound, but I fear the baby's calorie burn will soon no longer be able to keep up with the calories I'm putting in there, and soon they will be showing up at weigh in time. Perhaps that would be a good new years resolution...try not to become too big of a big fat pig!!

Whose Popular??? My Boyfriend, that's who!!!

For the fourth year in a row my boyfriend, Dale Earnhardt Jr, was voted Nascar's Most Popular Driver. Of the 2,835,277 total votes received, Junior came away with 1,172,195 of them. Good for him.

I'm a Fan of Underwear, but if I wasn't...

I saw these in my latest Cosmo magazine. I had no idea that so many people went without underwear, that it warrants a product like this. It's the "Commandos" underwear patch, which can be purchased at GoCommandos, for $16.00 per pack. They are offered in denim for your jeans or light pink for your lighter colored pants. Just stick this disposable patch into your pants to protect yourself and your clothes and off you go. Just think of how many happy guys there will be out there, now that there is an easier way for their women to go without underwear. Woo hoo!!!!
