Last night I went out and had a glass of white wine, a shot (slippery nipple), 2 vodka and redbulls, some bread with garlic, and a delicious serving of chicken alfredo of which I ate most. Mmmm. Fun times. Gotta have a little fun and indulgence now and again, no?
Anyway, today is the last edition of Ask Mary Anything for this go around! YAY! It really did take me a week to answer all the questions. So thanks to everyone who asked me something. I’ve enjoyed answering them and sharing things that YOU want to know.
Do you joke about your weight, ever put yourself down?
I do joke about my weight or body parts, but it’s usually not in a way that is overly negative, or negative at all really. I have enough people in my life to put me down that I’ve learned I don’t need to do it myself. In high school I used to joke about my weight all the time. It was like a preventative measure. I knew that if I made the first move and made a joke or two about my weight it wouldn’t hurt as much if someone else did it because I “allowed” them to after I had done it. Crazy thought process, but that’s how it went. Now if I make jokes about my weight, which is rare, its honestly just to get a laugh or to make myself laugh and would never be as insulting as anything I used to say.
What are your pet peeves? (like the really silly totally irrational ones)
Ack! I’ve got a lot, actually, but when put on the spot I can’t think of any. Oh, wait, one really irrational one – I hate it when people clips their fingernails or toenails. Seriously. I know, I do it too, but I freaking can’t stand when someone does this around me. Bah! We will just leave it at that one for now.
Whats the one think about you that you think would surprise us readers the most?
Hmmm. Surprising? Well, I’m a good girl, so one thing that surprises people when I tell them is that I was suspended in high school for vandalism. Oops.
South Beach Steve asked:
What is the single greatest moment of your journey to healthiness thus far?
I honestly haven’t had a single moment where it’s been “the greatest moment” of the journey. As it is in fact a journey there have been highs and lows and there will still be more. I’ve had a lot of great moments, like the first time I ran two miles (for me it was amazing), or the time I bumped up in an aerobics class and it still felt easy, or the time where I went snowboarding for a whole day and didn’t feel winded at all or this whole Green Mountain experience. I’ve been at various weights and various levels of athleticism over the last five years, but it’s been a great journey. No matter where I was during that time I have always been healthier than I was before I started and that fact is the greatest part of my journey. I’ve haven’t and never will go back.
Thank you for reading and thanks for asking the questions! I enjoyed it!
That’s it for me. I’m off to spend the weekend with friends and shopping.
Hope the weekend is amazing for everyone!! What are YOUR plans? Anyone actually CHRISTMAS SHOPPING yet?
