Biggest loser

Tomorrow is the start of "The Biggest Loser" contest at work. I'm not very excited about it. It means I'm going to have to commit myself and it's so much easier doing nothing. There's a lot at stake...like $1045! That's how much the biggest loser will win. I could go crazy and starve myself...probably not, I like food too much. My plan is to be really sensible about this. I'm not going to deprive myself of any food...I'll just eat less of it. I don't want to lose weight as much as I'd just like to "tone up." So, starting tomorrow, I'm going to alternate between this video, elliptical and weight training for at least 30 minutes 5-days a week. Wish me luck!

I watched a 'good in a strange sort of way' movie the other night - Running with Scissors. It's a true story about a boy who grew up with a mental mother and an alcoholic father. His father basically leaves his life and his mother gives him away to her therapist who is crazy himself. It's so strange it's hard to believe it's true. Now I want to read the book. I checked with my "reader" mother and sisters and they don't have it. I'll have to check the library.

Talked to my sister today - we're going to Neil Diamond in November! We are such dorks.
