my top 5 li5t

Tuesday, September 14, 2010

ok so im a blog person. no surprise th3r3. having been on sp 4 ovr a year now ive noticed that there are blog types that i like and 1s that i dont like.

th1s week i will talk about the 5 that i really like.

Below are the 5 prototypic4l blog titles + authors that i go right 2.

5) im back!!
any blog title that indicates that the blogger is returning after a hiatus

i know the feeling of isolation when returning to a place where i wuz once part of a/the group and now all my friends are gone + everyone is like who is that.

i like to welcome sp who r returning after a long hi4tus. i hope if i evr fall away and come back after a year 0r so that i will be greeted as such if my friendz r gone.


4) i need help!!11:
these are onez where the blogger haz a question or is experienceing trouble losing w8. often it involves a struggle which ive been thru so i like 2 try 2 help if i can.

3) they fit/dont fit anymore:
any blog title that indic4tes that either:
* an article of clothing that used to not fit now does
* the blogger was able 2 try on a new smaller size article of clothing
* safety/fat pantz r 2 big
i rember several pairs of pants that i bought that didn't fit that now do or r 2 big. love 2 share in the joy of that w others

2) im b3low...(insert 10/100 pound milestone h3r3)
w 1 exception, i remember going below evry 5 pound milestone. the sense of victory. how sw33t it wuz. I love 2 share in others' victory when i see them experiencing the s4me victory.

1) written by a friend.
my friends m3an the world 2 me. i love 2 share in the victory and agony of those who have shared in my victories and agonies. ive been really blessed by gr8 friends on sp.

even if i dont know what to say to what they blog about, I will usually leave the hug emoticon (or if its a blog that i dont like i will just read + not leave a comment (but i will read)). sometimes when not on, i dont read the blogs bc im not on. not bc i dont like the blog. wanna b clear on that.

but m4ke no mistake. i do read them even if only bc they are written by a friend.

if ur a friend just know how thankful i am 4 u.

I've Got The Solution!!!!! (Thunder Claps. Lighting Flashes)

Saturday, September 04, 2010

OK so it's 5th down and 20 and I'm in the penalty box for an offensive foul (See Steelkickin, I knows me my football. Go Pirates!).

OK so I totally dropped the ball on the 191 by 9.11! goal. My weight has, let's just say, not gone in the right direction recently. Let's recap

7/24: 198.2
7/31: 197.6
8/07: 195.8
8/14: 196.0
8/21: 198.4
8/28: 198.8
9/04: 199.0

It begs the questions. You know: The tough ones:
* Do I really want this?
* Am I more afraid of success than failure?
* How do I turn the situation around?
* Have I turned into THIS TEAM!!??
www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gs1uJqtN4WE

OK, so if it's really 5th down and whatever else I said in my first paragraph where I proved that I know jack-nothing about sports, then it's clear. It's obvious......(dramatic pause)......

There is only one thing to do!

Voice in TrentDreamer's head: What's that?

TD: Hold on I'm thinking.........

I've got it!!!!

I need to turn into a Vampire!!!

Voice in TD's head: Huh!!??

TD: Yes, I need to turn into a vampire. And no, not one of those girly sissified sparkling/vegetarian vampires. I'm talking the real deal ones. You know the ones that bite people and kill them or turn them into zombies!! Yeah! uhhhhhhh (taps pencil on desk thoughtfully)...... Hmmm. biting people on the neck is kind of gross.

Voice: Yeah, and you actually own a necklace with a crucifix on it. Wouldn't that burn your chest?

TD: Yes, good point. I would be damned to wearing turtle necks until the scab came off of that sucker.

OK so maybe the sparkling/vegetarian/flower-picking vampire is the way to go after all.

So here's the sure-fire bullet-proof plan that will get me down to 195 by Halloween (at which point I will turn back into the non-vampire version of Trentdreamer that you have all come to know and roll your eyes a lot at):

I will:
* Make my background all black and depressing/emo
* I will update my profile pics Weekly. Yes, weekly.
* My profile pictures will be all eerie, scary, nasty and spooky. If you get scared easily you may want to have a friend go on my page first and warn you about the extreme scariness.
* I will use more internetty type words like "omg", "lol", and "ru" and "l8r" (I don't know if vampires, sparkling or otherwise, actually do this. i41 think th3y shud tho :p)

Don't worry, I won't bite. Remember, I'm vegetarian (and I sparkle (and probably also play with dolls)).

Hmmm, maybe the real vampire thing wasn't so bad after all.

So anywayz, On HALLOWEEN NIGHT (thunder crashes and lightning flashes). YOU will s33 the dreamer ride again. sayest not that thou were warned not!!!!!!!!!!!!
Werewolf in background: Aroooooooooooooooo!!!

TD: yup, forgot to feed Fido again. l8r bffs!!

(Trentdreamer leaves to feed Werewolf named Fido)

- TD Out

p.s. A vegetarian vampire is one that doesn't bite other humans. If they were actually vegetarian as in they don't eat meat, that would be cool.

p.s.s. I think I will turn into the vampire sometime in the next day or so. stay tuned :)

    LOL!! You had mentioned in another blog about turning into a vampire and I totally told you to go for it! YEAH, you are very articulate in the ways of the SportsWorld, total kudos for that, man. The PIRATES are an AWESOME football team! LOL!

I really love your quick-witted humor...you could put Letterman and Leno to total shame.

    Haha - Im so glad I read this because I was just getting ready to ask you about the new typography (wuz, h0w, etc) that's been creeping on my page :-)

AND I 100% completely agree with Tanner...I get so excited when I see that the one and only TD has taken the time to comment on my page/blog/status/etc. Puts a smile on my face much like your humorous blogs! I look forward to them just as much!

I like the new plan and I like that it is shaped around Halloween, one of the BEST holiday's ever!!! Why dont you help SupaKrit come up with the best costume...EVER! No store bought...go big or go home! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    And the thunder rolls.....reminds me of that Garth Brooks cheatin song, but hey if it works for you then I'll support it....well, as long as you're not biting people :) Ohhhh, and I love turtle necks, although they may be a little out dated. They could always make a come back.

    *makes sign of crucifix in TD's general direction*

I personally prefer the Vlad the Impaler type to sparkly Edward whatshisface. If you're going to do something slightly odd like sucking people's blood, do it properly.

I have every confidence in you emoticon

So between all the thunder bolts and lightening what I saw was you fell of your bike... so get back on... You got off the track get back on.....You lost direction so get a new map.... emoticon
Even though I'm new to spark I've been there done that with gaining loosing gaining loosing gaining. and on allsorts of interesting and wacky eating plans. But this is different. Spark is different.

Its makes you say 'listen take notice its your choice. In the short time I've been here I am changing my life style. From eat whatever and move now and then....to choose what I eat and 15 minutes minimum of exercise anything that makes me get off the couch. I still have my treats.. Its all about portions and accountability.
Tomorrow is a new day. Take advantage of it. good luck on your journey and give the vampires a miss. Turtle necks not in fashion!!!!!!!!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Today I Weigh 19...(long dramatic pause)... Part 4

Sunday, August 29, 2010

Goal: 195
Last week: 198.4
This week: 198.8
(+0.4) Again, meh.

Superbowl is still a few weeks away.

Fallen off the wagon is a bit strong. Distracted is more like it. My life has become extremely complicated over the past month or so. I'm going to try to write a blog about how it has later this week. My time on Spark has become scarce.

My eating has not been good. I'm going to give my best shot over the next week, but 191 is not likely to happen. I will stay the course. I've upped the weight workout and am now always hungry. I did eat horribly this week, but still. I am going to try to lose this week.

    Hey, recognizing where you've gone wrong is half the battle. Now you have to do something about it to fix it. It's tough sometimes. I weighed in with a big fat ZERO this week. But that is NOT going to stop me from pushing on. You can do this! Do NOT give up!

    "I am going to try to lose this week"

You are in control this week! I have no doubts that you will do good things. Lose/Maintain/Gain its all part of the bigger picture. Its not speed that gets you to the superbowl. Its your strategy and determination that will get you there.

    It's all so **** difficult isn't it? Fine when life is chugging along but we only need 'distractions' of one sort or another and off the track we all go.

Sounds like you're staying strong and keeping on keeping on - good for you! Just don't overreach yourself - it WILL happen - just not quite when you hoped. Sometime is better than notime tho. emoticon emoticon

    Hang in there, babe. Don't try to lose the weight too fast to get to that magic number either. You'll end up gaining it back and then some in no time. Slow and steady, dear friend. And do me a favor? Pat yourself on the back for the wondrous things you've already accomplished?

Don't let your life become a number on a scale. I've made that mistake before. I've actually thrown out my scale. And I lost the weight.

    I've said it before, but... 19x is a lot lower than your start weight. Remember how excited you were a few months ago when you could fit in smaller sizes and your cargo pants? I'm still as happy for you now as I was then emoticon

Message me if you need anything... but I *know* you're going to have a good week, no matter how in-demand you are!
