This morning I awoke to the sight of huge bags,
even a bowl of Tarjay Heartsmart would not ease the sag.
Topped with a banana and some slivered almonds too,
I headed to work looking like mondo poo.



My first Gingersnap Larabar perked me right up,
cinnamon, ginger and cloves – oooh just enough.
I stared at a screen most of my day,
killing a few brain cells while still getting paid.


Nothin’ like a little ‘cado to get me back on track,
paired with black beans and Ezekiel to be exact.
What a yummy combo I had to devour,
which only took me a mere fraction of an hour.



CVS called my name and boy did I answer,
if you didn’t know the sun is now in Cancer.
Carbonation city came rumbling in my tummy,
with the purchase of liquid crack – boy was it yummy!



My stomach ballooned out to three months,
no I’m not pregnant with a litter of runts.
I burped and burped all that fizz out,
before devouring my yogurt with a bit of a pout.



After work I headed over to my dear sister Katie’s,
where I devoured some chips thanks to that lady.
Along with a salad and a can of Diet Coke,
my stomach became six months bigger, this I don’t joke.




Thankfully I sipped some mint tea with care,
grabbed my Oikos coupons that Stonyfield shared.
Thanks to Kristina and the gang for my free tubs,
man those Greeks must have been rollin’ on dubs.


Uber-thick and creamy; that’s what she said,
I can’t wait to try this organic wonder and the 30-Day Shred.
Plain, vanilla, blueberry, strawberry and honey too,
this is going to make excellent bloggy eats, woowoo!




Thanks to Ms. LovIN for being my poem inspiration,
off to run 3 miles and sweat lots of perspiration.
Then perhaps off to bed to see Deb in the morn,
if I can get my arse out of bed without being forlorn.


Thanks for reading about yet another day in my life,
it ain’t always pretty and sometimes filled with strife.
I promise lots more goodness on the bloggy this week,
good night to all, I’m going to take a leak!
