I should explain to you all (because I know it's not readily apparent) that I am still dieting and I am exercising. I've been trying really hard since March 6th and so far, I've lost a whopping seven whole pounds. Which I had to beat off of my body with a crow bar. If I'd shown the kind of discipline I've had for the past two months at any other time in my life, I could have RULED THE WORLD. I hate my metabolism in my forties. (Should it even exist, which I doubt.)
And here is my daughter Jane (8) showing us all how it's REALLY done. (She wanted to put this on her OWN blog but I am sneaking it in here so that the last visual you have in your brain is not of me hula-hooping, especially if you're going out to dinner or something.
