Running through to say wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

Hi! I am so sorry for not posting anything for the last few days.

Let’s see:

Quick news:

1. I was TOPS Loser of the Month (again)

2. I’m still at a stall (which is fine, because it happens)… ok, no– it sucks donkey snot, but I’m still working things to see if I can jump start progress again.

3. I have more recipes coming up this week (non-CincodeMayo)!

4. This blog has surpassed 100,000 page views! (Aye carumba y gracias!)

5. I won some money thanks to all of the support from you guys! I am going to use the money to give back to my readers (that’s you!). Stay tuned for some giveaways coming up soon! And thank you!

6. Incidentally, if you have a company and want to sponsor a giveaway item or items (in return for a review and some really keen kudos from me), please contact me. Put “giveaway” or contest or sponsor or something obvious in the title of the email so that I don’t think you’re a Viagra ad or a Amish dating service. (Ahhh, Lemuel! I remember you well…)

7. I really hate no-repeat April’ on classic rock stations. Don’t get me more wrong than too-tight painter’s pants– I love classic rock. I don’t love the extra-long “Low Rider” 8 minute instrumental version. By the end of the month, I’m going to be exposed to a musak version of Alice Cooper or Meat Loaf. So help me, if they end up playing Def Leppard as polka music, I’m going to write angry letters.

8. More Cinco de Mayo recipes are coming soon!

9. I owe some of yous guys comments and will check those today! Thank you for continuing to write.

10. This space left intentionally blank to honor base-10.

  1. Woohoo! Congrats on being the biggest loser this month, even on a stall! Way to go!

    I’m looking forward to more recipes. I’ve made the taco bowls and on the 3rd batch of oopsies (used garlic powder and dill weed this last time and you’re right…yum!). Going for the cauliflower pizza crust soon (tonight?). I bought fresh cauliflower, so we’ll see what happens with that.


  2. Woo hooo your the biggest loser… ok I meant that in a good way of course…giggle

    Your so right, I’ve been in a stall for over a month… it does suck donkey snot! It bites monkey butts too.

    Looking forward to the recipes. It’s ant season here.. I had ants.

  3. woo hoo on both the blog success and the biggest loser.

    You know you could give up the DC and see what happens to the scale numbers hint hint 🙂

  4. “I don’t love the extra-long “Low Rider” 8 minute instrumental version.”
    I always thought they played “Radar Love” so the DJ could go to the bathroom.:)

    Congrats on the TOPS thingy! I am holding at 16.4 lbs since Feb.I am lost without Oopsies in the house now, haha.

    OMG, YOU dated Lemuel, too?! I loved him so much! We had our own personal cell phone service just so we could talk to each other. Nothing says love like two empty green bean cans tied together with baling twine. 😛

    Cleo, you slay me, girl!

  7. Nancy Ellyn says

    I hit publish too soon. I also wanted to congratulate you on your journalistic success AND your weight loss. You rock, missy!

  8. You loser!

    Looking at your stats, I don’t think this is a true stall … just a plateau, the kind you get when you lose SIXTY ONE POUNDS in JUST FOUR MONTHS!

    You’re doing great, Cleo!

    Thank you so much for the woohoos and the high fives!

    I hate being stalled, but I call them mini-maintenance periods, so I might as well look on that bright side.

    I am going to try and ignore that I should give up Diet Coke.



  10. I’m joining you on the diet Coke front. Trying is right. It’s so hard. But I love my vinegar water, my true lemon water and iced tea. So I’m working on it.

  11. cleochatra,

    Love your blog! Congrats on the 61 lbs. I find i have to do a refeed once a month to boost my metabolism. 3 high carb low fat meals in a 12 hour window then back to induction level carbs for a few days really jumps start my lb loss. It’s a bodybuilder technique (sp?) really works for me. A month of low carbing just kills my metabolism! And yes i exercise.
