No, I’m Not Vegetarian, I’m Winning Weight Watchers

winning at it. See my fave thing about it is that it’s based on points. So it has, like, built in gamification. I literally sit around trying to figure out how much I can eat and use almost no points. (mostly because I need those points for alcohol, but that’s another story). And when I find something that’s super yummy and low in points I get a feeling similar to how I imagine athletes feel when they score or something. I wouldn’t know how that feels as I’ve always been an asthmatic uncoordinated mess, but I think it must feel the same.

But the real way to win at WW is to eat fruits and veggies because those are 0 points. Zero. Yeah. That’s like getting the other team to forfeit. It’s awesome. So I’ve been eating a lot more of them especially as snacks. But they’re kinda pricey. Then I found Boston Organics. And now I get produce just delivered to my house. Seriously, the coolest thing ever. Because in addition to saving my lazy ass another trip to the grocery store because all the bananas have gone bad, it also forces me to try new things, which I suck at.

However, now I’ve got all these people asking me if I’m going vegetarian or vegan. It’s honestly offensive. I freaking love meat (that’s what she said) and I think I make that pretty clear. And I really like dairy so the idea of willingly giving that up sounds way to much like giving up sight or something. Don’t get me wrong I have plenty of veggie and vegan friends and it doesn’t bother me. So when I try to explain that I’m not trying to be either I don’t want to offend anyone. I kinda just want to be like, listen, I’m not vegetarian I’m just winning at Weight Watchers. What’s it to you.


Remember That Time I Was Going to Be A Blogger

Remember when I started this blog and I was gonna write and write until I figured out a theme and it was going to be awesome?

So that didn’t happen.

I honestly might not be cut out to be a blogger. But I do like to write. And I think writing things out is really therapeutic and pretty enlightening. And who couldn’t use a little thearpy and enlightenment?

So here we are round two of me trying to blog. I might fail just as miserably this go around as I did the first time. But hey, no harm no foul right?

So, dear reader, whoever you are, let’s give this another go. You’ve got to keep trying when you fail. Well at least thats what these people say:

  • There is no failure except in no longer trying.  ~Elbert Hubbard
  • Supposing you have tried and failed again and again.  You may have a fresh start any moment you choose, for this thing we call “failure” is not the falling down, but the staying down.  ~Mary Pickford
  • Failure is only the opportunity to begin again more intelligently.  ~Henry Ford

And who am I to argue with a bunch of famous dead people?
