How "The Accidental Fat Chick" Hatched...

Welcome to The Accidental Fat Chick's new online home!

During the summer 0f 2008, I woke up one morning with a drive to live a healthy lifestyle. Since then, I've made many changes and lost nearly 50 pounds. Many of my friends and family members have come to me, asking about what I'm doing & how I'm doing it. While I certainly would never claim to be an expert, I'm happy to share what I've learned along the way.

So after careful thought... "The Accidental Fat Chick" has hatched... with the hope of helping at least one person and to be the accountability I need to finish what I started. :)

Thank you for visiting!!

Cheerleader Info Needed

Well I think I'm recovering nicely from finishing the Challenge... except my left knee aches like crazy. It was really nice not to wake up and head for the gym yesterday, but by last night the feeling that something was missing had settled in. By this morning, I was missing the gym and now I'm actually frustrated that I can't go tonight! Seriously, when did this become such a part of me that I can't miss a single day without going through withdrawals?

The new job is going well so far. Its had logistical challenges with The Husband's schedule & being down to one car... but we're making it work. The downside has been not being able to get to the gym; but I suppose a two day break is okay after how crazy the final Challenge days were. Tomorrow, I will get back to the gym for sure... and finally get my post-Challenge measurements.

Now, my faithful cheerleaders, I need you to email me your info. As in names & mailing addresses please (and yes, my dear Mama Pimp that means you too). True to my word, my official cheerleaders are going to be rewarded. The winner of the special gift will be announced Friday evening... I already know who you are... but you can earn an extra chance to win if I receive your info by 4:00pm PST on Friday. In case you're wondering what the "gift" is... its a surprise... I promise its good... and I did give a hint a few days ago that it required a trip to the bead store. :)

Its kids group night, and I'm already going to be late... but I wanted to leave you with my amusing moment of the afternoon. Sitting at a stop light on the way home from training, there were these two older guys along the side of the road (taking their picture in front of a pair of display jets). What caught my eye initially was the one guy trying to fix his hair, despite the fact that the wind was blowing steadily. So there I am innocently observing them & the one guy bends over, with his backside toward me, and I see a HUGE hole in his crotch! And let me tell ya... this old guy was not wearing underwear! The last thing I needed to see was old man butt hole on my way home.... ewwwwww is all I can say. Oh wait, I guess I should count my lucky stars that the hole was only on the back part of the crotch... or I would've really gotten an eye full. Still, I may have nightmares... I think I'm scarred!
