Brain Gifts For You

Since I don't actually have real gifts to send at the moment, I thought I would send some of my brain soundbites to you!

Receive them with open arms.

I would like to start off by giving thanks (wait, wrong holiday...but thanks are better than eggs any day in my humble opinion). I want to thank all of you who read and I want to let you know that I do indeed read every comment posted on my blog. Someone mentioned the other day that they were hesitant to leave a post because they didnt know if I read them are not.

PUUUH-SHAW! Of course I do. I read them. I love them. They bring my joy. I also love every email you guys send me. Amy lovies. Lovies a lot.

Next order of business. One of our favorite restaurants is Red Robin. I usually just get the tortilla soup...but sometimes if we are feeling frisky, Tracey and I split a tower of onion rings. I pull the onion out and just eat the outside. YUMMY. We never finish the entire tower. However, last weekend we went in for beer (Tracey), water (me), and just the onion rings. We ate the entire stack. After I got home I thought I would look up the nutritional info. Red Robin is one of those fantastic restraunts that provides it!

Do you KNOW how many calories are in a stack? Guess.

Guess!!!

Whatever you guessed, it was probably too low. The answer is 1,819! OMG! And 122 grams of fat!

WOWZA.

We will not be ordering those again anytime soon. Sigh. Farewell crispy yummy outer part of the onion ring things. You will be missed.

Moving on. Thank you for the love on my vlog. Yes. I was holding up my workout pants. I am in a bit of a bind when it comes to my workout pants. I have the most wonderful pair in the world that Gen sent me. They are XL from Lands End, long black pant with drawstring waist. They are too big and when I cinch the waist all the material puckers. The capri workout pants I was wearing in the video don't have a tie waist, and I wore those to Zumba last week. BAD move. Had to hold them up during all the hoping about. If you guys remember my goal shorts post from last year, these Nike shorts are my dream...



But I am still afraid that my crotch will eat them and I am afraid to try them on bc I have flashbacks to junior high when everyone was wearing UMBRO shorts with their black and white Adidas shoes and none of the UMBROS's fit me....but somehow I managed to find one pair and squeeze my thighs into them. It was a miracle I didnt blow a seam.

I did read in my fitness magazine that bermuda length workout shorts are all the rave. Which makes mama happy. For some reason those don't sneak into my neather regions.

Speaking of lady parts. I had a blow out at Zumba last week. I always wear a thong to exercise bc I don't have to worry about pulling my creeping panties out of my ass. They just start there. Well, since a majority of you are not well endowed like me and my friend Gobbles here...





You probably didnt notice that in thong undies these days, they don't allow much room for holding your dangly bits. So, sometimes my bits fall out. And pretty much just straddle my underwear. Yeah! I said it. So what am I supposed to do in the middle of Zumba. Stop and put my hands down my pants to readjust? No. I think not. I soldier on. For another 45 minutes. Slightly uncomfy.

Sigh.

Lady nuts.

Oh, and one last thing before I go. I weighed in this morning. I didn't make 130 pounds. But I did make 131 pounds down! HOLLLA!

  1. You rock! All those brain gifts and the true gem is hidden at the end! Yay Amy!!!

    Bummer about the onion rings. Makes me scared to check out - we have a local crawfish joint that has the best onion rings in the world. I get them 2 times a year maybe...but I think if I knew what I was really getting, I wouldn't get them. Maybe I should try and find out....grrr....

    And sorry to hear about the lady bit discomfort. But hey, regarding the shorts you want - if people don't like what they see - tell 'em to stop looking! :)

  2. OMG Amy! When I saw the onion ring pic in the blogger window, I couldn't tell it was onion rings but thought it looked a little Phalic! I am LMAO right not and will now read your post!

  5. you are my hero. thanks for the info on the onion rings. i ate half an order of those on sunday, probably why i have been working all week to get back to where i was on saturday. well that and the cake and brownies, but i digress.

    i have issues right now finding workout pants/capris/shorts. some are too small, but the ones that are supposed to fit are too big. what is a girl to do. and well running down the road with my capris around my ankles just is not an option. and well trying to hold them up while running, talking on the phone, holding water and the dog, just doesn't happen too gracefully. so i am on a mission.

    congratufreakinglations on hitting 131.

  7. GAWD. You crack me up! I used to work at Red Robin in college...yep. I know every word to every birthday song (I also used to work at Hot Dog on a Stick in High School! My arms got buff from making lemonade for 2 years!).

    I totally remember Umbro short! I wore them for soccer!

    Congrats on the 131 down! I need to get my ass in gear.

  8. I just love me some Amy. You never cease to make me smile. I'm so glad that we don't have a Red Robin because I could not resist those onion rings! We have so much in common, my crotch eats my shorts too, I hate that! Happy Easter!

    ReplyDelete
  9. Yea!!! I'm glad you are down 131!!!

    Such a hilarious post...as usual!

    ReplyDelete

  11. Wow! 196! Wow! I LOVED this post! Made me laugh! :) You are right thongs are getting smaller! If that is even possible!

    ReplyDelete
  12. Ok, so now I will have a visual all during Zumba tonight! You made me giggle again! So happy for you with your weight loss! You are so inspiring!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Awesome weight loss, oh my gosh!!! I am so glad that Red Robin is on the other side of town, onion rings and freckled lemonade..yum! So I don't like running shorts (like your goal shorts above) cause they ride up in my crotch, but I am loving, loving some running skorts. They have shorts that don't ride up underneath, you don't have to wear panties (so no dangly bits) and it's a cute skirt!! I bought 5...found some at Ross for 9.00..yay!

    ReplyDelete
  14. OMG. where to begin? hmmm. let's start with HAHAHAHAHAHHAAHAHHAHAHAHHA
    ahem. then move onto umbro shorts and b&w adidas. i wanted these things tooooo!!! as a matter of fact last weekend my bf almost bought me a pair of stan smith adidas (white with green trim?) i rocked the hell out of those in '90!
    awesome about the 196! and i am DYING for a RR Banzai Burger! Luckily the closest one is about an hour away! RED ROBIN....YUMMMMMM

  15. Ok, so now Red Robin has been added to the ever growing list of places I have never been and now must always avoid. I am not a fried food eater, but I really, really, really love onion rings.

    Thank G-d the only Red Robin I know of is way out in the suburbs somewhere and unless they are going to serve those onion rings along with some hot guy who is sure to fall madly in love with me and whisk me off to the life of luxury I know I am destined for, they must remain out of reach.

  16. OMG - I loved Umbro shorts - they were to die for but man did stuff hang out of them. I hate short shorts that ride up - not because of lady bits - but because my two thighs always wanna make out with each other and be all touchy feely. That = chafing and a reminder that I have big thighs that kiss each other - which I hate. Smooches punky!

  17. Girl, you crack my ass up. I love you and your humor. We need to plan my trip to see you guys.!

  25. Onion rings. Delish.

    I have been eating dark chocolate as my special gift to myself every day. I didn't check out the nutriotionals until last night. Holy Shit. 5 itty bitty squares are 210 calories. In my head I'd been estimating that 1/3 of the bar, my usual treat, was 210 (probably 10-12 itty bitty squares).

    Now I will totally have to rethink my nightly treat. No wonder I have been stalled!

  26. Ok, I'll leave a comment since you read em all. I figured you were calling out to me since you mentioned "PUUUH-SHAW" I don't post my last name, but if you look at this you can actually guess my last name (it starts with S) and isn't PUUUH, which would actually be kinda neat.

    Anyway. Don't pass that one around, but figured you were actually sending brain waves to me so I had to post. I was thinking you might need a lady jock strap for those lady dangly bits. Hope they didn't get injured or bruised. Sucks when you have to ice the nether area. Just wanted to say hi and to let you know I love your humour and your vlog. It is so liberating to dance for joy, so keep on doing it. Did you get to the end of this before nodding off?

  27. You made me laugh out loud! congrats on the awesome weight loss! you inspire us, make us laugh, and make us feel treasured! your blog is enjoyable from the start to the end, always!

  28. 131- awesome! My daughters favorite is Red Robin. I always get the chili - it's good too.
    My husband doesn't like to order the onion rings there because of their phallic nature.

    ReplyDelete
  29. As usual, you come through with some great stuff!!! Love it! And congrats on 131!!! I'm soooo jealous!!! Me whining: "I wanna be a bandster too...waaaaaaaaa!!!!"

    ReplyDelete
  30. The hardest part of commenting on your posts is that if you don't catch them 5 minutes after they go up there's like 100 people that have already left all these funny, insightful, heartwarming, make you laugh and cry at the same time comments and I'm like. Duh...what am I supposed to say that sounds remotely original. I got nothin' except you are hilarious and congrats on 131.

  32. Too funny. Well I have been questioning myself on posting what does everyone else wear for ounch as we call them for when they are exercising. Cause dang sometimes they hurt.
