Dangers of Loose Pants


This is an UNBELIEVABLE event that happened to me today. And it's a major reason I need to change my goals for this week.

I was having a hard time keeping my scrub pants up today. They are elastic and so they've been able to stay on pretty well even though I've been shrinking. Well that is definitely not going to fly anymore. I was in the bathroom and adjusting my loose pants. I leaned over to flush the toilet...my pants slipped and I grabbed for them...and my PEDOMETER FELL IN THE TOILET AS I PRESSED THAT STUPID HANDLE. Flush...

GOODBYE PEDOMETER. It got sucked down the stupid toilet at my house! This same STUPID toilet that can barely get a piece of toilet paper down on some days that swallowed my pedometer!

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh...I was super mad. But I was also laughing because...it's stupidly hilarious.

In any event, this will prevent me from tracking my steps the rest of the week. Ugh! I'm looking around online for one...but I JUST BOUGHT THIS ONE. :( And now it appears I will need to invest in some new scrub pants. It just never ends! I did just get a few pair at the goodwill so maybe a trip there this weekend to see if there's any more will have to be on my Pre-Italy list!

I want to thank you all so much for your delightful birthday wishes. I adore you all <3 You are my motivation and my rock, helping me do this thing one pound at a time! I went out to dinner with my mom and I had planned my menu all out. I was going to have the portabello mushroom sandwich and all the fries...well what I ended up doing was taking the bread off and just eating the yummy mushroom inside (it's in a balsamic reduction, not a HUGE amount of calories). And I only ate TWO FRIES!!!!! And then I shared a piece of cheesecake with my mom...so I stayed right within my calorie range, made excellent choices eating out and continued on my merry way!

Today has been good...before my pedometer dropped into the toilet I had already walked 1.1 miles. And consistently his week I have done 2 miles or above. Now...I don't even know. I'm going to have to buy a new one. (I'm still not over it, sorry). I'm still going to be doing lots of walking though, folks! Don't worry about that!

Also, I'm building up my repertoire of recipes. The second recipe I'm going to do should come Saturday night. I have a slow cooker recipe that's to die for! And healthy! I also got myself a few birthday presents...

Hooray new recipes! I hope everyone is having a good day. I'm off to look around for scrubs...


  1. I have that Weight Watchers Cookbook and I'm a big fan! Let me know what you think of the Hungry Girl cookbooks. I've been trying to decide if I should invest in some of them.

    As for the pedometer..this is why I don't have any fancy electronics. I'm one of those people that has experiences like you just described.

    Glad you had a wonderful birthday. I'm so happy we're both blogging because you really have been one of my favorites to hear from and super supportive, so thanks!

  2. Glad you could see the funny side of a *shitty* situation <- bahaha I think I'm so funny. I once flushed a cell phone down the toilet at wal mart. Then I dropped my wallet in a toilet at the same wal mart. Speaking of wal mart, in the fitness section of my local one there are a lot of decent priced pedometer watches, if you want to erase the risk of it falling off again thats a product you might wanna check out. You're doing great so keep it up :) xx

  3. Omg,Im soo sorry about your Pedomiter but at the same time it gave me a chuckle, I HEAR you on the clothing issue im getting to the point i need new clothes too!!

  4. Ha! The pedometer situation is hilarious...although I am sure having to go without one and having to buy a new one is not. But it is awesome that you can laugh instead of getting ticked, its the only thing you can do in life sometimes! I LOVE HUNGRY GIRL COOKBOOKS! In fact I want to get the one in your picture! I have the 200 under 200 and it is wonderful.

  5. Oh dear! You always think something is going to fall in but what a loss!

    Congrats on the eating better at a restaurant. I struggle but it's about ordering less and leaving some on your plate when your full.

    I'm really really bad at leaving food on a plate when I know I've paid quite a bit of money for it!

  6. Hehehehe, well I have to say it was quite funny! A shame of course, but still funny! :D
