the lies they tell


If one more effortlessly thin celebrity explains her lightening quick weight loss with the excuse that she doesn't really work at it , she just chases her adorable children around all day I might loose it. I spend my days chasing two immensely energetic little boys around without the aid of housekeepers or nannies. In the last month or so Johnny has really come into his own as a little boy. Last night when Ty called from work to chat I was supervising the boys as they experimented with what made the best sled on the staircase (i.e. cardboard box, sleeping bag, etc.) and couldn't talk. If I look away for 2 seconds, someone is going to break an arm. When we are out of the house, Johnny must be toted around at all times because the moment those adorable toes touch the ground that kid sprints towards the nearest safety hazard, usually a busy road or heavy equipment. I run all day long, not counting my daily workout. It has not helped me reach any of my weight loss goals. I am exhausted, but not any thinner. I'm just saying.

What? It doesn't just melt off you like those "normal people" celebs? It totally does for me...ha! You are awesome and from what I can tell, absolutely beautiful!

Yeah, my sister read an article (within the past year) about how Posh and Katie Holmes ate out together. They shared a diet coke and poked at their food with their forks. What is the point of being 90 lbs. if you can't have nourishment? Those women annoy me.

I think my favorite skinny celeb is Sarah Jessica Parker. She just comes out and says she's skinny because of genetics. Period. NOW I CAN TAKE THAT EXCUSE.

AMEN sister. I've had those same thoughts lately. I'm just starting to wonder...what would I weigh if I WASN'T working out 6 days a week? That is starting to scare me....

I have four children , no nanny and no housecleaner. What am I doing wrong? Maybe I am not using the proper form as I chase my adorable children around?
