Does anyone else hear the Jeopardy theme music playing?

I’m happy to say that not only have we harangued welcomed 2 more victims blends into our fold, (welcome Kellie and Nicole!)I think we’ve actually been doing pretty well as far checking in with each other and keeping the healthy train on the tracks.  Well, mostly.  Everyone’s entitled to a few minor derailments every so often.

Remember those pants I was complaining about a month ago?  It’s just a tiny bit, but yeah – they’re looser!  Can I get a big Black Dog whoo hoo?!  Technically, it may only be a smidge looser, but I’ll take what I can get.  Plus, with our weekly challenges of drinking plenty of water, no fried foods, and incorporating fruit and veggies into every meal, it’s making our journey into Healthy Land just a little bit easier.  Of course, we’re also masters at this:

We can rationalize anything.  ANYTHING.

We can rationalize anything. ANYTHING.

I think we can all agree though that this has been a fun trip with plenty of side roads into Twitter crazy land.  On any given day Kellie is rationalizing the veggies in cream cheese counting as a vegetable serving, Lisa taunting us with promises of Mars Bars Chocolate Cookie thingies, Rae torturing us with gorgeous beach pics, or Nicole making us laugh so hard with her snarkiness that we almost mess our drawers.  What more can a girl ask for?  Oh wait I know – get everyone (almost) to sign up for another Disney race AND start thinking about flying all over the continental United States for another half marathon.  I can so see where this accountabilibuddy relationship is going…



So if you’re looking for a bunch of silly chicas who keep each other in line (mostly), and have a great time doing it, then come join us.  We’d love to suck you in welcome you to the cool kids club.  Really.  We would.  Right ladies?  There’s just one entrance question: do you consider cupcakes to be a food group?  All rationalizations welcome.

Like I said....

Like I said….

Enjoy the ride.

Black Dog Has Gone Facebook!

Can you believe it?!?  This super techno-challenged bloggeridiot finally figured out how to create a Facebook page for this wondrous little piece of literary geniusness!  Thanks to Kathryn over at From Dancing to Running - who seems to be doubling as my bloggerworld instructor (must be that whole teacher thing), I’ve figured out how to set up a blog FB page as well as assault you all with multiple Tweets about aforementioned published literary geniusness-ness (?).


It actually sat there for a while unbeknownst to everyone but my aunt and one faithful follower (thanks Lisa!).  Oh wait, what’s this cute little button over here?  Invite friends?!  Say it isn’t so! (said in overly-dramatic voice).  And overnight my little brain vomiting corner of the internet became an internet sensation!  Okay, maybe not, but it sure sounded good…

Since I can’t figure out how to post a picture of my page – ugly non techno-geek moment here – you’ll just have to sail the social media seas and float on over to check it out here.  I promise, you will be entertained with silly dog pics, Miami Heat pics, more silly dog pics, motivational fitness stuff, silly dog pics, and the best…links back here to my weekly works of literary geniusnesses(?!).  Excited aren’t ya?  It’s okay, you can be excited.  Calypso is!


So make like the Wonder Mutt when I open the gate to the lake and jump on over to our Facebook page.  Hit like if you want.  At the very least it’ll make us feel loved.  A little.  Go.  Now.  Go.  You can get free money once you get there.  Okay, maybe not but it sounded good didn’t it?


Enjoy the ride. On Facebook!

(like what I did there? Did ya? Didyadidyadidyadidyadidya??)

Has your readership increased thanks to Facebook?  Any tips on growing your blog for this non techno-geek?
