bye bye spaghettios. We've had a good run. I'll see ya next week!

Last week I decided to start working out. I also decided to go off my anti-depressant.

So it's no wonder why I went completely mental this morning and found myself in a spin class.

at 6:30.


Here's the thing. My little brother is getting married in April, and lets be honest here. he's my favorite sibling. (no offense anyone else, but a spade is a spade) So I need to REPRESENT! (whoop whoop) And his betrothed is also my favorite (again, no offense) SO I don't wanna show up looking like this

SO my friend and I decided to do the A-list workout! of course!! when in hollywood....

And yes, I am gonna have a HOT hollywood body! (hopefully more britney and less danny devito) (I'll even take "fat" brit)

I was gonna hire a trainer...AGAIN....but I had TWO trainers last year. TWO. And it didn't take. And I coulda bought LOTS of DVF dresses AND gone on a trip around the world for what that cost me. The A-list plan was only $19.95. So, we'll see. I'll keep you posted.

Even though I've been working out for a whole week, I've been slow to start the ole diet. And yes, DIET. Not "changing my way of eating for life." just diet. Short term. massive starving. Think, tic-tacs and lettuce. Because? I don't wanna eat healthy for life! yuck! Give up eggs benedict? Substitute green tea for coffee with half 'n half? eat fish and vegetables forever? I don't THINK so!

I decided today is THE LAST day for eating junkfood. sigh. So, this is what I'll eat today...

...and McDonalds. (thanks kristina. thanks.)

Oh, and as far as going off Lexapro like I did? bad idea. I started crying and crying at EVERYthing. Even the commercials for Marley and Me. I got back on that drug horse yesterday. Can you imagine me on a diet AND off drugs?? HA! Hannibal wouldn't have nothin' on me!

Paris Hilton's flat, firm abs? Funny, I thought it was because she had her liver removed.

Good luck with the diet and the pills! Many years ago, I took Paxil for anxiety. It took me 4 months to get off it completely! Never again. I will be batshit crazy in a straight jacket before I take mental meds again.

Yeah, so I just had a big old 5 Guys burger and fries today. But, I haven't had one in months, I'm off the McDonalds and I'm actually doing the elliptical. So, I can justify it.

Good luck!

Took me a long time to get off of zoloft, and the withdrawal, insane. Just found you. LOVE the name, and knitting and knitting and knitting and knitting...

I'm also supposed to tell you that Large Marge sent me.

Oh. My. Goodness. How have I not happened upon your site before? Hello laugh-out-loud, I-think-we-might-be-soulmates blogger. The photos on your site are AWESOME. I know you probably get compliments like this all the time, but I can't help myself. My favorites: David H in a Speed-O and Punky. Also, is that Fraggle Rock that I am seeing?

Fabulous post. Way to end your last day of junk food on a high note. If you are going to go, go out with a bang, right?

$19.95 for a hot hollywood body is a really good deal. I definitely be back to see how it all goes. :)
