(Un)Lucky 13

aka: How to lose 7 lbs. in two days.

  • Step 1: Rush to grab a bite at the crowded mall food court. Stand in line at busy Subway Sandwich kiosk.
  • Step 2: Watch as server rapidly tears and smashes bread beyond recognition, then dumps on questionable ingredients with lightning speed to get caught up with her orders. Ignore gut instinct to find sustenance elsewhere; order the Y15 sandwich of the day.
  • Step 3: Scarf down unappetizing sandwich; rush on to scheduled appointment.
  • Step 4: Teach English small group for 2 hours. Return home with a headache.
  • Play DS to unwind. Realize that game seems to be causing some nausea. Decide to watch old episodes of Friends instead.
  • Never realized they ate so much on this show. Rachel is pregnant and having bad reactions to foods ("Does this have pickles?")... She runs to the bathroom to hurl... And I hurl with her.
Thus began my own (very un-enjoyable) personal rapid weight loss program. Even worse, it coincided with our 13-year wedding anniversary. Fancy, romantic plans, out the window. We spent our big day watching movies while I lay on the couch trying to stay hydrated. Fun times. But you know, even passed out sick on the couch, I was still the luckiest girl in the world, because I was with my guy. We've been through ups and downs, good times and bad, and in the end we're closer than ever. He's the love of my life, simple as that.

Here's to 13 more wonderful years!

(Oh, yeah, and the Subway Sandwich kiosk? Never again.)
