I’m as boring as snot.
Really, I’m a one-man yawnfest.
Each morning, I get up at the same time and eat the same ol’ breakfast. In my food journal, I’ve started writing “SOB” next to breakfast, shorthand for “same ol’ breakfast.”
Around eleven, I’ll generally eat a handful of almonds. By then, I’ll have had four or five glasses of water. Don't get between me and the bathroom.
A half hour later, I’ll head out to the gym and exercise for 45 minutes or so. Usually the same routine, day after day. Luckily, they change out the security guard at the door every day, because I'll generally use the same joke all week when I check in (last week: "I'll give you ten dollars to work out for me today").
In the middle of the afternoon, I’ll have a cup of green tea (finally learned to gag it down) if I’m not hungry. I’ll have an apple if I am hungry.
After that I try to…. hello… hello… wake up. WAKE UP! I’m sorry, I’ll try to pick up the pace here with a joke.
A few weeks ago, I went to my high school reunion, even though I hadn't been to one in decades. When I walked in, I thought I recognized this woman over in the corner, so I approached her and extended my hand in greeting.
"You look like Helen Brown," I said.
"Well," the woman snapped back, "you don't look so hot in blue either."
That one make you work too hard? Okay, how about this:
Q: What's the difference between a professional blogger and a large cheese pizza?
A: A large cheese pizza can feed a family of four.
Okay, got that out of my system. Now back to the dull old dullness. My point about all this ho-hum humdrum is that a successful weight-loss journey can be pretty boring at times, can be stale, can be dull, dull, dull. It can be as boring as a spreadsheet about. which spreadsheet-making software makes the best spreadsheets.
But dull days can make for some spectacular weigh-ins.
