Augusta National and the Fat Ninja

Saturday, April 09, 2016

Captain's log, stardate 20160409.

These are the adventures of the starship Tub-o'-lard...

That's about how I feel. Three days at Augusta National watching the Masters practice rounds with a big group of guys... Let's just say that healthy nutrition must have been teleported to Klingon, since it damned sure wasn't with us. Here's the motley crew, sans me (taking the picture).

Now, though I may have put on a few poundages while there, all in all I'm still down nearly 50lbs since August. I say that because I may have snuck up on my wife and scared the crap outta her, and she called me a fat ninja.

I believe she insulted me. Or at least a "backhanded compliment."

Good news though. I visited my local Farmer's market this morning. Here's one of the 6-7 regular farmers' booth...

...and here's the booty I walked away with for a whopping $31.

Finally, Houston hosted the NCAA basketball final four. A big deal, that didn't help me a bit, since I wasn't here. There was, however, this sign at the Delta counter at IAH. Seems those programs were mysteriously disappearing from the uber-secure baggage handling process.

Nothing like announcing in advance, "don't put anything valuable in your bags, because we'll steal it."

    I love farmer's markets and can't wait until ours open up again! Oh and I think the calories that you eat while you are on vacation don't count, or at least that's what I was told. So you are welcome! haha! It looks like you guys had a good time.

    Wish we had a local farmer's market near by. Even if we did, it's still too cold here in BFE Nebraska. I have to admit, I love the "fat ninja" comment. Not nice, but funny none the less. Very cool you were at the Master's practice rounds. Is there ever healthy foods at those things? ANY food? Isn't it mostly liquid courage?Anywho, congrats on the weight loss. A perfect healthy eater is a boring healthy eater. LOL! We just move on from our minor setbacks & do our best the next time around. Enjoy your goodies from the Farmer's Market.

    Life happens, and that's a good thing. You can't skip the fun stuff and obsess on the numbers. 50 lbs is an amazing accomplishment! Given time, you'll be sending your fat ninja suit in for alterations lol.
    I KNEW those a-holes were stealing my things! lol

    I can't comment on the fat ninja thing. I'm pretty stealthy and awesome for a chunky girl myself!
    50 lbs., man! That's super amazing! Keep at it until maintenance, then keep at that. It's life and you're on the right track. Time with friends is so important. It's LIFE. Do you, the healthier version. It's all about balance.
    Loved all the pics and the musings with them!

    It's a shame you couldn't go to the NCAA Final Four! It sounds like Augusta was fun and even though the eating wasn't the best I'm sure there was lots of walking. ;)

    Congrats on the 50 lbs and I love Farmers Markets. That fresh food will be great and help to keep you on course! emoticon emoticon

    haha, fat ninja! that's both mean and hilarious at the same time.

    while your nutrition may have not been great, I bet you guys all walked quite a bit, following players around the course.

    Love your farmers market, haul! emoticon
