It is very chilly here in the upper midwest. The day's high temperature was reached at 12:01 last night and the temp has steadily fallen since then.
To warm myself up, I took a bath tonight. In the bath, I noticed a few things (forgive the pending TMI).
First of all, I noticed that my hips don't touch the sides of the tub, and I don't block the water from moving from the front to the back of the tub anymore. Bath water just moves freely around me!
I noticed that I don't displace as much water in the tub, either. Usually, I know where to fill it so that I can get in and not make the tub overflow. However, I can fill it quite a bit more and still not cause it to overflow when I step in.
These are pleasant observations. Now for the weird one.
Have you ever watched a cartoon where the character deflates? Usually he deflates one body part at a time. Well, I think my breasts did that before my very eyes tonight. The other night it was my stomach and before that it was my neck. And in cartoons, they don't deflate smoothly -- they get all wrinkled and fallen in on themselves. Yep. Pretty accurate depiction.
I wonder if the cartoonists had weight loss surgery to know exactly how to animate a deflating body?
Oh, here's the protein smoothie I made this morning:
Chocolate-Covered-Cherries Protein Smoothie:
1 scoop chocolate flavored protein
1 cup light vanilla flavored soy milk (can substitute 1 cup skim milk)
1 Tbsp (sugar free is preferred) chocolate syrup
10 maraschino cherries
6 ice cubes
Blend and enjoy!
