What is a "bottom line"???

According to Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia, there are numerous "bottom lines"...a biweekly alternative newspaper at the University of California Santa Barbara, the running scores and news for ESPN (the ticker at the bottom of the screen); net income (revenue minus costs and expenses); music venue in New York City's Greenwich Village; a World Wrestling Entertainment syndicated television show; catch phrase of Stone Cold Steve Austin and John Vespa; a publishing company...and my backside!!!!

Reality Bites...

NOTE:  I wrote this post back in May...the beginning of May...

Or does it?  (I happen to love, love, love this 90's flick...with Ben Stiller, Winona Ryder, and Ethan Hawke!  Just thought that it would be an equally captivating title to this blog).  If you are still around and reading...thanks!!!  I have had a horrible couple of months...and have started many blogs (at least in my head)..but have never actually gotten them off the ground or posted in cyberspace.

Reality:  I LOVE reality television.  I guess this is one of my guilty pleasures.  Why?  I guess that I love to think that these folks on these cheesy shows ("Biggest Loser", "American Idol", "Survivor", "The Voice", "Real World", "Judge Judy", etc.) are all real...how could any of this be scripted?  (That was completely rhetorical, by the way!).  I am a t.v. junkie...my DVR is constantly filled to dangerous levels...thus explaining the long periods of time spent on the weekend in a comatose state.  :)  What can I say?!?!?!?!

Reality:  I have been so super busy at work that eating on plan has been well...an afterthought.  I have been attending my meetings at Weight Watchers and weighing in...it's just that nothing has been, well, worth reporting.  I guess that it's "keeping it real" that when a blogger seemingly disappears, nothing good can come of it.  I guess that I am living proof of that!

Reality:  I completed the Country Music Half Marathon on Saturday, April 30, 2011.  So, while my eating and weight loss may have suffered over the past couple o'months...I stuck with it..and did it!  I am super proud of myself.  I rocked Nashville...and plan on doing this event again next year!  (And if you are wondering where my newfound "I am awesome!" attitude comes from, it's because I had every chance to bail out of this event...my friend that was doing it with me decided she couldn't/shoudn't/wouldn't be doing it...so that took care of our "free" place to crash...so I had to hustle to find a hotel room (nothing was available in Nashville for less than $225/night!) and figure out the logistics of how I was going to get to the event (our "free" place was going to be volunteering at the event, so we were hitching a ride w/him to the event and back).  I ended up spending a whole lot of extra cash...but it was SOOOOOO worth it!  (Truth:  I have always had a buddy (or two) at previous events when I have participated...so I was a bit nervous about doing this one on my own...but folks...I rocked the heck out of Nashville!!!!   I am ready to seek my next event out...with our without a buddy!  I have now completed my second half marathon...so can I say that I have done a full one?  Nah...I am only half crazy!  :)  Actually, to quote the aforementioned movie, "This girl is cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs!!!"  (Nah, not really...prefer real chocolate instead of a chocolate cereal.)

Reality:  I am baaaaaccccckkkkk!!!!!  I am going to make a concerted effort to post at least 3x per week...if not more often.  I realize that you may/may not be able to read that often (or that I may not have anything worthwhile to say in these posts)...but I seem to do much better when I am held accountable...and you, my dearies, are helping me through all of this.  I hope that my ramblings will, at the very least, not put you to sleep.  If so, just think of this as good bedtime reading.  :)

Until next time...let's all keep it real!!! :)
