A friend of mine, Mr. Mike Schleifstein, is doing a 24 posts in 24 hours, blogging marathon today to honor the Katrina-nniversary.
In one of his many posts Mike talks about the Katrina diet and how many people lost weight during the past year. I so wish someone had told me about this Katrina diet because it sounds so much better than what I did over the past year, which was gain weight, and then gain some more weight.
While camped out at our friends' apartment in Houston there wasn't much for jparks and I to do besides eat. The levees broke? Hand me another pop-tart. The roof is coming off the Superdome? I'm going to need another piece of cake. Looting? All over the city? At hospitals where I have friends stuck? And the looters have guns? I'm going to need another full meal. With some extra dessert. And maybe a milkshake to wash it all down.
Once we moved to Austin I started a baking phase. "My life isn't that bad, see I made cupcakes! 4,595,861 cupcakes! And now I'm going to eat all of them!"
Thankfully I'm busy enough now that I don't have time to cook or bake. And I'm working out pretty frequently. Hopefully I'll be back to my Pre-Katrina weight by the second anniversary.
