Amazing body

Nope, not mine - not even close.

I have a good 40 pounds to drop before I will feel amazing and honestly, if I could just loose 30 - I will be ECSTATIC.

I marvel at the human form. Other than God and Michelangelo I don't know anyone who understands it better. I can't believe that my little weak knees can support my ass on a daily basis and then on days like today where I ran for a whole 10 minutes - I was amazed once again because they didn't completely split into two.

AMAZING. There are bodies, faces and minds that I appreciate - Here are a few celebrity crushes I have

Lenny Kravitz - Love the short hair now.

My very first celebrity crush - John Taylor, Duran Duran. I have to say this picture kind of grosses me out because his chest hair is exposed and that is a total turn off for me.

Oh, handsome devil. Classic, charming has a home in Europe and is well-read.

Doesn't get much better than this -

Food God - Anthony Bourdain

Day Two of South Beach or why I love bread

I love bread and right now - I'm going through some BADASS withdrawals. WHOA. I mean - I'm jones-ing for some bread in a serious way.

Today was good, I didn't realize how often I eat out of boredom. Throughout the day, I found myself saying "Are you hungry because you are physically hungry or are you hungry because you are bored. More than not, it was the latter.

I was struggling with dinner, called Jules who was also struggling with the thought of eating our prescribed dinner. During my phone call to Duane, I even said (non-chalantly, of course) I could just swing by Islands and pick up some burgers. He was supportive and reminded me that we had chicken defrosting. Thanks hun, thanks a bunch.

I had a good twenty minute daydream of me eating bread and schmearing my favorite butter all over it. AB would be proud, it was a total food porn moment, complete with cheesey - bow- chick- a- bow-m-wow music and all.

While I was making (and dreading) dinner. I had the brilliance to remember that I had not eaten my laughing cow cheese earlier and took bites of it along with the mixed greens. Seriously fantastic combo with the balsamic vinegrette, mixed greens made laughing cow light garlic herb cheese - almost taste like goat cheese. One of the few goat products I enjoy.

I hate Celery

Day one of SB diet.

Everything has been relatively ok until my mid-afternoon snack of celery (YUCK). The only place I like celery is during Thanksgiving in my stuffing, finely chopped.

The biggest challenges have been:

1) Smelling co-workers monster tacos + french fries from Jack in the Box and not wanting to lick the wrapper,

2). Not eating doughnuts that were brought into work Tuesday morning,

3) Trying not to emotional eat after receiving some really bad news.

Dinner was scrum-didly-umptios last night and consisted of: Salmon, asparagus and a mixed greens with balsamic vinaigrette.

Exercise = 40 minutes on the treadmill and 40 sit-ups.

On the mill

Tonight, I did40 minutes on the treadmill. Ten more than last night, all the time watching Tori and Dean - Home Sweet Hollywood. I'm hooked on that stupid show.

We had chicken, cous-cous and spinich for dinner. I have not a had a glass of wine since Saturday and getting much accomplished. Amazing how that works.

Ok, hopping in the shower.

Let's see how the legs feel tomorrow.

GOAL - to work up to 60 minutes. Taking tomorrow night off to help a friend assemble her wedding invites and then back at it Thursday for 50 minutes and hopefully hitting 60 on Friday.
