    I’ve been MIA for awhile, but I’m back! And holy cow woman, you are awesome -24 pounds and 16.5 inches! And all the exercise goals… you put me to shame. I was proud that I got in 20 mins of walking today, until I read this! You wouldn’t perhaps be moving closer to me, would you?? :]

    339: number of crunches I suffered through on Friday.

    300: number of times you’ve put a jihad on your trainer in the past year

    Satisfaction, weight loss and ensuing sense of superiority? Priceless.

    I just discovered your blog — I had no idea where the name came from until I read your explanation! Good to know. I have always wanted sushi pajamas BUT they are so expensive. I have seen twice in stores, and they are silly silly expensive ($70 for pjs, wht?). Anyways, just wanted to say hello and congrats on a brilliant blog name.
