Fool on the move

I started going to the gym in earnest this month. I must, repeat must, return to my formerly pleasingly zoftig form. I do not have lofty ambitions of wearing a size -2 jeans. I will settle moderately overweight instead of heading to the big girl store with a krispy kreme in my mouth.

So we went to the gym during the busy after work rush and I was on the treadmill in the front row so I could be close to the VH1 screen and be schooled in the 100 messiest celebrity feuds, when I saw The Davey come over to join me. Well, good thing he was there because I became so involved in the Hilary Duff/Lindsay Lohan feud that I momentarily stopped walking, stumbled and started to fall when The Davey got me upright but I still treadmilled myself right onto the floor which wouldn't have been so bad had I not had my headphones still plugged in and on my head.

I obviously had to hit the Dairy Queen drive-thru on the way home to drown my embarrassment.

Also,this breastfeeding gig is a hoax. If you ignore the best-food-for-the-baby- allergy-and-illness-aversion- if-you-don't-you-are-a-bad-mother-and-your-kid-will-grow-extra-limbs-and -be -in-special-PE-and-never-hold-down-a -fulltime-job-benefits-touted- at birth class part. I am talking about the promise that my midwife, friends, co-workers and the lady with the unusually large mole who stood in front of me at the target made me. "Don't worry about the pregnancy weight if you breastfeed, the weight will just fall of." Total Bullshit.

Well, I'd say 50% bullshit ...

I've got 2 kids, and breastfed both, and I gotta tell ya, after no. 1, the 18kgs I'd gained in that pregnancy was ALL GONE within 12 weeks. With zero effort on my part, and while eating every kind of crap I felt like.

On the other hand, no. 2 is now 5 months old and I am still the proud posessor of 8 of the 13 kgs I gained in that pregnancy ... No fair.
