Proof that L. Britt is Getting Old

This weekend was whirlwind. The thing is, it really wasn't that whirlwind. It just felt like it. Which is a clear sign that I'm getting old. The facts that I was on the road from Thursday to Sunday, that I was in three cities in one day, and that Ella's luggage was bigger than mine didn't help. However, the entire time that I was sleeping in a strange bed, I kept thinking how I couldn't wait to get into my own. By the time I got home, I had never been so happy to see a couch in my life.

I came to the realization that exercise is no longer an option for me. If I don't want to have a body like my mother's...a lovely woman, just on the rotund side...I am going to have to do something that actually increases my heart rate almost every day. There is no other option. Cutting out soda...which I have done...is SO not enough.

I went to bed at 10pm last night. I finished watching the season premiere of "The Closer"...such a good show...didn't really want to watch anything else, so I went to bed and was glad about it.

See what I mean?

You're so not old. And you've got the cutest little tush. Not rotund in the slightest.

I actually just cut out sugar. I noticed how fast I dropped weight on Colonial House, and honestly it wasn't ONLY because we were malnurished... I think high fiber low sugar did wonders. I have a noticeable weight redistribution and a less noticeable weight loss.

(Also helped that we were freezing all the time because they hadn't expected the winter to go so late.)

I cut out soda a long time ago...but I replaced it with:
1. tea with huge amounts of sugar.
2. wine. way too much wine.
3. pizza. way too much pizza.
4. chocolate milk. not TOO much chocolate milk, but one every now and again.
5. Huge bagels.
6. I could go on...

i know i'm getting old, too, L. Britt. I actually get excited, I mean HYPE, when I get to bed early, at like 9:30 or 10. Especially if I have a good book to read. It's on!!!

My friend Dave has teased me for years even before I turned 40 that he doesn't bother to call and see if I want to go out during the week. He'll say, "I know you won't go since it's a 'school night' and all!"

So, yeah, I hear you on feeling old.
