Less of This, More of That

Remember that "Seinfeld" episode where Jerry and Elaine decided to uh...get some side benefits from their friendship? And then, when it became clear that those benefits came with a few costs, they decided not to do "this" or "that".

Well, I did a little bit too much of one this -- eating over the holidays. You all know I love my food :-) and I had made nacho dip, cookies galore (you name a type of cookie and I likely made it. In fact, I think there are still a few dozen in my freezer!), mashed potatoes, stuffing...all the bad stuff I should be avoiding :-)

So, now, it's time for more of that. Less time on the sofa, feigning work because my laptop is turned on, but my hands are busy scooping up some more nachos and dip, and more time upstairs in my office, the room that lacks a food cabinet. Less time sitting and more time moving to help get that nacho lard off my rear.

And less time fretting about whether I wrote enough today; more time celebrating what I did write. Today, I'm going to the mall. Not to shop (okay, I might go to ONE store) but to write, in a different setting, away from the dogs, the kids, the phone. More of that and less of this :-)

And hopefully in time for Spring Break, there will be less of me, LOL.

  3. Absolutely, a new environment works really well. I do coffee shops often and can't wait till the kids go back to school so I can go back again.

  5. Hi Shirley. I love Seinfield. Good luck on the diet. I keep saying every year I make that resolution to lose a certain # of pound but every year the number goes up....

  6. I am trying the same thing. Too many bowls of Cherry Delight and fudge is really stuck to my hips this year. I think they have now taken up permanent residence. Good Luck Shirley. I am so enjoying "The Dating Game".
