Mmm....Biscuits and Gravy

Weight update:
As of yesterday, the scale told me I was down another pound and a half. I think the problem is that Monday is my official weigh-in day, and I diet really well all week until Sunday, when I eat pot roast and mashed potatoes. So, the Monday weigh-in is after I've ruined it all.

But anyway, the dieting is going fine. My wife, ever the temptress, made biscuits and gravy last night, knowing that it's my favorite food in the world (after fried chicken). I think she's still treating this weight loss like a competition, and she's playing dirty. Hey Erin--watch for the bag of caramels under your pillow! Turnabout is fair play.

Writing update:
Those of you who aren't writers might not be impressed by this, but: 4400 words on Monday, and 5900 words yesterday. I'm kicking this book's trash.

Hmm, biscuits and gravy . . . love it. We're having beans and rice in tortillas. Not nearly as good.

hi, it's me! melissa c said...

You know, I find that the spouse just doesn't get it. I feel sabotaged by mine all the time. You ought to do the hCG diet!

Oooo, Erin definately has a mean streak.

As for the book, hurry and finish it, then come and throw some words at my current WIP. The buttkicking over here is in the opposite order--I'm the one getting thrashed and I'm tired of it.

Jealous on both counts. Good for you.

Erin said...

Sorry about the buiscuts and gravy sweetie. I actually made it because I was craving it.

I'm not really trying to win unless you are up for a wager.

Awesome on the weight loss, and awesome on the book progress!
