Yesterday, the little rhinestone pattern on the butt pocket of my jeans left an imprint in my chair at work. Granted it was stormy and windy outside and 5 extra-large pizzas were delivered to the office at noon, so, really, where did I have to go?

You know those magazine articles that list 5 simple changes you can do to burn more calories or consume fewer? Don’t you think it’s unfair when they’re things you already do? Like, I already consume mostly calorie free beverages. I already take the stairs. Or at least I used to, when I worked on the third floor of a building. I never took the damn elevator.

But now I work in a little ground floor office with my car parked right outside. I haven’t had much occasion so far to go trekking through the woods or wading in rivers. And I’ve been buying 1 % milk because that’s what my boyfriend likes. Obesity can’t be far behind.
