Today’s installment of Zoo’s Journey to Non-Fattitude: I finally nailed Warrior 3 Pose.


Tree pose can still suck my shorts, though.


I mentioned once before when I had my last physical (in November) that my cholesterol was super scary bad. Like, talking about going on cholesterol meds bad, and that, combined with my fasting blood sugar making diabetes a possibility and my family history of heart disease…well, there were several nights I’d go to sleep worried I would die. Dramatic much?

So I’ve spent the past two-ish months trying to eat right and exercise and I’ve fallen off the wagon (hi, Thin Mints) (and bread) (and beer, thanks for stopping by!) several times and even though I’ve lost 11-12 lbs I was starting to feel frustrated.

I got my follow-up bloodwork results today and my total cholesterol went from 225 to 177, LDL went from 142 to 119. OMG. A friend and I are going to see Wicked this weekend and I am TOTALLY treating myself to some cheesecake (after working out earlier that day, of course). YAY!

Normally the spouse does the grocery shopping on Saturdays. I hate most shopping as a general rule, but mostly the grocery store. Oh and there’s also that thing where I am a visual sucker so even going to the store with a list and on a full stomach doesn’t negate me buying crap I don’t need because IT’S RIGHT THERE AT EYE LEVEL. So it’s best if he goes alone. But sometimes I end up going with him. Today was one of those days. Today was also the day that the Girl Scouts set up their table selling their boxes of evil deliciousness.

And my husband wouldn’t let me buy a box of Thin Mints. He DENIED me Thin Mints. Now, I know he knows me well enough to know that he was (accurately) flashing ahead 6 hours when he would be hearing “HOW COULD YOU LET ME EAT ALL THOSE THIN MINTS?!” but still, dude. He looked that adorable little Girl Scout in the eye and said No.
I weep.
(Un)fortunately I remembered that my 10-year-old niece is a GS, so when we got home I texted her to see if they can ship those suckers. Answer: Yes! And get this! Shipping is FREE! But. Apparently there is a 4-box minimum for shipping. Um. Okay. And. Since they’re $4 a box and I like even numbers, I had to order 5 boxes to make it an even $20. Right? Right.
When I informed the husband, he was all, Hm. So I just should have let you buy the one box at the store, huh.
Yes. Yes you should’ve.
The boxes arrived today. I got creative.
