Yeah. 3 words I NEVER thought I'd say.
Allow me to elaborate.
Early this morning (2 am) I woke up to crashing, roaring noises. Apparently wind speed had reached 20 mph and branches and boxes and odds and ends were being heaved about all over the place.
WiFi (that's my dog) was convinced that the miscellaneous garbage was actually a cunning predator come to devour him and would not stop barking.
Then the power went out. Which you would think, since it was already night time, would not really matter... but I assure you, pitch black is quite noticeable.
Especially when you have a little dog trying to convince you that there is evil lurking just outside the door and all you can hear is creepy wind noises.
At that point, I pretty much knew I wasn't going to be going back to sleep anytime soon.
So I did what any person who doesn't have power and can't sleep does... I used my iPhone to check out the latest celebrity gossip.
That's a totally normal thing to do when you can't sleep cuz you're convinced that there's a serial killer outside or aliens are invading or that the wind is going to blow your roof over and you'll be crushed to death... right?
So back to Snooki.
Apparently she has lost a very noticeable amount of weight. I may be way behind the times on this news. I don't know because apparently I only check out celebrity gossip when I feel like my life is in danger... but it was a revelation to me.
She went from this.
No doubt, she looks good. Well. Better. I could do without the kissy face and the shoes that are a size too big, but I don't think anybody could deny that her body looks great now.
That's not the part that inspired me though. I mean, I've seen a lot of before and after pictures in my day. Some with much more dramatic and inspiring results.
Apparently, at her heaviest (sooo... the first picture) she weighed 130 pounds.
Uh.... I weigh 130 pounds.
Okay, okay. But she's really, really short and that's why 130 pounds looks like a lot on her.
Except... Uh... I'm really, really short too. Like 4'11 short.
So that means I look exactly like... DAMN it.
And that is the story of how Snooki inspired me to get my butt in gear and lose these last 20-25 pounds.
