Pavolv's Fat Girl

Last night after dinner we were sitting on the couch catching up on some shows and the oven timer went off. I immediately jumped up and thought "COOKIES!" until I realized I had just accidentally left it on. I guess that goes to show me how often I made cookies during dinner which would result in eating the entire pan in one night. I found it extremely funny how a simple sound could trigger a reflex like that. Maybe that will be the case forever or maybe I will eventually think "BRUSSELS SPROUTS" when I hear the beep.

I took the night off from exercise last night and it felt good to have a rest after 3 days in a row. We took the dogs for a nice walk and it's amazing how much my endurance has improved. I barely broke a sweat on our usual route which almost killed me a few months ago. I'll be pounding away on the treadmill again tonight. I hope I have more energy than I did on Wednesday night. I think sometimes we are just "off".

This weekend is supposed to be sunny for the first time in forever and I plan on making the most of it! We don't have too many social obligations aside from a baby shower so I plan on getting a ton of exercise and some good sunshine.

Hope everyone has a great weekend!!


  1. Awwww, Geez!! Would the buzzer HAVE to be brussel sprouts??? Could it be something else? A lovely baked fish or some other veggie?

    It is amazing what triggers are embedded in our brains, isn't it?

    Have a great weekend.

  2. That's funny...and now I want a cookie!

  3. I've glad you lost your cookies (whoa... they doesn't sound so good).

  4. That was too funny!

    I can't figure out how I have been missing your posts...grrr. Go to get all caught up...

  5. LOL, the rush for the cookies, hope you weren't too disappointed!

    You have been doing very well - you deserve a great weekend!

  6. OMG that's so funny about the oven timer. Especially since I'm making cookies right now! Not for me, though. I did have one "test" cookie, but the rest are for my cousin who just had twins - I'm going to visit them tomorrow.
    Awesome about the increased stamina - it will just keep getting better!
    Have a great weekend!

  8. Pavlov's saliva dogs - too funny. I know what you mean tho - I have similar triggers like a certain time of day, TV show, waking up, air I breathe - you get the picture.

    It's finally sunny here too after a week of rain. Can't wait to mow that lawn and burn some fat. Have a great weekend.
