Miscellaneous Sundry Minutia...

Greetings to you, my friends!  I am sitting in a hotel surrounded by colleagues who no longer “recognize” me and wishing I was home in the arms of my sweet wife.  So many oddities of note today; I scarcely know where or when to begin.

I am participating in a class sponsored by my company.  The class has eighteen students.  Exactly two thirds of the students are men (if you don’t count me… and I don’t); the remaining six are women (if you count me… and I do).  What, you thought maybe a Magwai or a Gazelle might sneak into the head count?  One of the exercises involved taking a personality assessment, after which, the class was divided into the four groups (as determined by the assessment) for review and discussion.  I greatly enjoyed our discussion, which was animated and fun.  As things died down (mostly among the other groups… ours was still going strong), I noticed something.  All six women (if you count me… which I do) ended up in the same group!  Isn’t that a hoot?

Ooh, one of my good friends recently asked me how I have lost so much weight over the last few months (I officially love her FOREVER!J).  It was a little difficult to explain, since we were in a bar, and there was a little too much going on for serious conversation.  She had looked through some of my older profile pics on Facebook… back when I still looked mostly like a boy.  I thought it might be helpful if I explained my diet program to you all.  It’s pretty revolutionary.

For the record, since last fall, I have lost well over thirty pounds.  I dropped at least four sizes.  It’s hard to quantify, because I also changed “size charts” midway.  I can say for certain that I lost over 4 inches from my waist line.  The secret?

I started exercising about 3 to 4 times per week on average (just cardio).  I stopped eating fast food (mostly) and most fried foods.  I switched from a drinking beer to drinking liquor.  And I started having sex.  There you have it.  That is the Kat Girl weight loss program – sushi, cycling, sex, and vodka.  I call it “The Kat Girl Weight Loss Program” or KGWLP for short.  Okay, honestly, I use an elliptical rather than a bike… but the verbiage didn’t flow as nicely.

Hope everyone is having a wonderful week!
