God, I wish I had your discipline.

oprah was inspiring yesterday. rarely do i think oprah is inspirational. she had people on her show that had lost weight the old fashion way. through diet and exercise. most of them had lost their 200 pounds by walking. so after doing a water work out yesterday i decided that we needed to walk to the grocery store and carry back our groceries. that's a good work out right?

so we walk down to our store which is between 2 and 3 blocks away. being the bargin hunter i am, i think it is a great idea to by the economy size detergent that washes 78 loads. we will have to wash 10 loads a week until i leave to get full use out of it, but it only cost $10.

allie had to replinish the wine. on average we go through about 4 (big) bottles a week. so she bought two. they made for really great weights.

so the two of us trek home with our wine weights and my 80 pound container of detergent. i had to switch hands a bunch, carry it with both hands, carry it behind my back, on my shoulder, on top of my head, but allie had to carry it up the hill.

against popular opinion, i think nicole richie has never looked better. yes of course she could stand to gain a few pounds, but wouldn't it be nice to wake up skinny with arms like that every once in a while...like say before a big date, or a homecoming at college or even for a wedding. perhaps at some point i'll gain her discipline.
