Definition of INACTIVITY - Idleness; habitual indisposition to action or exertion; lack of energy; sluggishness.

So I've only worked out 2 to 3 times a week for the past 2 weeks BUT I've been a great mom and a good friend and that has got to count for something, right?  But I can't help but think about the 2 (yes 2) Olympic triathlons that I've already signed up for this year.  Why Olympic?  I don't know.  Maybe because I figured I'd never be in the Olympics so this would be the one time that I would be doing something Olympic-like...not quite sure what I was smoking when I signed up.  Maybe I just want to suffer.  Maybe I just want to let my fat jiggle for several miles longer than usual....hmmm

Speaking of fat, I noticed that there was a special category for big girls!  I never knew that.  Even though I have gained 20 pounds and clearly fit in the big girl category there was no way in hell I was signing up for it.  If I did I might as well wear a sign saying "I'm one of the big girls, look at me!"  Believe me, people will already know that after looking at me.  Nothing wrong with being bigger but why the hell do we need to telegraph it? 

So once again I have to figure out how to shed those 20 pounds.  Guess I'm back to having my jaw wired.  I have no problem with it, it's just the Loveman that it bothers.
