Week 4 = Phase 1 (The Diet, Day 22)

I lost two pounds this week, according to the Scales of Doom. I’m crediting the Wii for the fact that I’m finally starting to lose weight. If the sports games aren’t doing it, surely I am burning off lots of calories yelling at Mario when I can’t figure out how the Wii version of the game I’ve been playing half my life works.

I’ve also decided the last three weeks were just “pre-dieting.” Like pre-writing, you have to spend some time working it all out in your head before you’re reading to get serious.

Today starts the first draft stage. I’m doing Phase 1 of South Beach for the next two weeks.

I’ll let you know how it goes.

Ellisville, we have a parking problem.

This is one of the many instances of creative parking I witnessed on my long trek to my car today.  I wish I understood more about the world.  I wish I understood why summer is never long enough for college campuses to complete parking lot resurfacing projects.  Here's hoping some of our currently unavailable parking areas reopen for business soon.

This picture, by the way, was taken with a little Sony Cybershot, not my "real" camera.  I'm thinking I'll carry it around in my purse and use it instead of the iPhone for quick random pics…at least until I forget to carry it with me or until I lose it again in an old purse.
