    Home today with a sick toddler. First thing he’s agreed to eat all day?

        Just three, and now he’s lying down again. This is a nasty one.

          😦 my friend has a two and a half year old, she spent two days sitting in front of the TV the last time she was sick.
          Normally, she hates TV and always wants to be outside.

            is it the flu?
            I heard there’s a really nasty virus going around lately

              Don’t know. There’s been a virus in the house, this one has knocked him for a loop. May be getting an ear infection, to boot. He’s on antibiotics, so tomorrow should see some improvement.

              Three more marshmallows! And two raisins! And some water! #winning

    Debating whether the new project is twice as big as everyone thinks it is, or three times as big as everyone thinks it is….

    Giving up sweet stuff for Lent. This is one of those projects that will help me, but only by killing me. Just had to turn down free chocolate chip cookies. Gads.

      learning self control is rewarding
      or so I’m told

        I’ve already concluded that it’s overrated.

        Problem two is that I have the metabolism from hell. Without the junk, I could end up as a stick.

          WAIT
          metabolism from hell is a fast metabolism?

            I suppose it’s relative. πŸ™‚

            When I got that virus earlier in the year, I dropped 12 pounds in 5 days.

              holy crap
              I used to have a ridiculous metabolism. Now it’s pretty much normal. I miss pigging out and still weighing 105 lbs.

                Also shocked everyone at work by losing about 15 pounds in the first year of marriage. Nobody had seen that before.

                Part of it was that I could now walk to the train, but given that I was often late, I had to do the last kilometre at a dead sprint.

                  that’s the complete opposite!
                  I gained 10. I’d like to get rid of them, pre-wedding I was at my perfect size, and I rarely, rarely got sick.

                    My coworkers were afraid there was something severely wrong. πŸ™‚ It was a combination of diet change and that miserable train.

                      Does your wife cook healthy food?
                      One of my acquaintances lost about 20lbs in his first year of marriage, his wife is japanese and cooks very traditionally, including portion sizes.

                      • 1967ers 11:24 am on March 9, 2011 Permalink

                        Yes. I’d been in Buffalo, where the dietary staples are beer and wings. Changed to something revolving around rice. Remarkable.

                      • gottabekd 11:26 am on March 9, 2011 Permalink

                        Yeah, sometimes I really try to get outside my anglo-saxon style food choices, but when times get busy I always fall back to what I grew up with, which is not the best.

              Second-year architecture, my nerves went and I stopped eating. Dropped down to 122 pounds (at 5’10-ish)

      i once gave up caffeine for lent, not thinking it through.

      no chocolate, no coffee, no tea, no dr. pepper…

      this year, I decided to give up on giving up, and be more thankful. so far so good.

        I don’t give something up every year. I tend to use it to stop doing something I should stop doing anyway. One year I gave up biting my fingernails for Lent. That actually worked.

          ditto. last year i did nothing.

          good idea on the biting fingernails. have to try that next year. a bad habit that i think was compounded after i quit smoking.
