Happy Birthday to me

Today was my 24th Birthday. Today was meant to be the day I started my wieghtloss journey, but I decided to put it off until the 1st of March. Im glad I did.

It was decided, since I was at school from 11am to 9pm, that during my break the wife and the kids would meet me at Hungry Jack's for dinner and gift exchange. *Drools at the memory of the dbl cheese* My presents included a bag of crunchies, and a BIG bag of Toobs (the saucy chips) for "movie time".

My foresight has made one of it's rare appearences and prevented me from failing before I even started.

One thing I do want to mention was I got a birthday card from my Nana. I love my Nana. Of the Cross brood, she is the ONLY one I consider sane (my daughter Alana is a possibility as long as she doesn't spend too much time around my son).

However, take a look at what the card said.

"At last the frantic years are over. With more time to do all those special things like:
- Toning up your body
- Saving for a mortgage
- Starting a career
- Still staying up for all night parties
- And having a good time

Who says life is a breeze?"

Now, my dear beloved Nana had the nerve to write "Ha ha" next to "Toning up your body".

Well Nana, of all the people who are able to motivate me with spite, I never suspected you'd be the first. After I much down on my fun-sized Crunchies and eat my ginormous bag of Toobs, and guzzle down a can or three of Pepsi Max (im on a diet, you know) I'll walk a kilometre, just to spite you! :P

2 more days til my journey begins.


  1. I was under the impression that if you have a diet coke with a crunchie it cancels each other out... right... :P
    spite can be an awesome emotion, use it well!

  2. oh and happy birthday :D :D :D
