Remember my previous theme of marking time? Thanksgiving is a marking point! There's about 3 1/2 weeks of the term left. I've got 2 major delivereables still on my plate: a paper based mainly on an interview with the awesome Artistic Director of the Commonwealth Shakespeare Company and the Samuel Adams marketing project I've been working on all semester. Basically, I've got about 3 more weeks of sitting on my ass at the computer. Ah! My ever-expanding ass.
3 more weeks and I can get my life back, at least temporarily! I can go to the gym...back to abs class, back to boxing class, back to some kickboxing classes! I'll be able to stop the expansion of my ass, my hips, my belly...OK, I admit it, it's getting to me. Normally, I have a better perspective. Normally, I can sit back and realize that all this extra on my body is just temporary, that I will be able to do something about it soon, just not now. Today, I have a less positive perspective. I'm feeling caught up in the cycle of weight loss and gain. It's seeming less hopeful today. It's probably just a mood...a phase. A little bit of something that I have to just push through and remember my priorities and that the semester is almost over.
And when the semester is over, then the year is almost over. And when the year is over, I can really get back to the gym. It will take time, but I'll be able to get my body back into the shape that I like. I'll be able to climb stairs without huffing and puffing. My fat pants will once again be too big. And I'll stop my ass from expanding faster than the universe.

You'll be happy to know that the apple didn't get eaten...and that the French vanilla muffin was delicious!

Again, a meal too good for a small photo.

HOWEVER, This roll in the front, the PINK FLOYD roll, was yummers!!!! And I would order it again, if only for the name.
Alas, I have no Thanksgiving photos to show you all. Suffice it to say that there was turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, mushy peas, candied sweet potatoes, brussel sprouts with candied pecans and too many desserts to keep track of! And, yes, I ate so much that I don't expect I'll want to eat again for a few days.
