If the sign fits, park there

Ok, people. Raise your hand if you need to park at Tubby Cove.


I think I could park there for several weeks after all the holiday consumption that's been going on lately.

I also found a new site that's not helping with the tubby situation.


I warn you, though, please don't go there.

There are treats galore.

It's called Bakerella. And I want to make cookies like this. I truly do.

Unfortunately, if I begin making lots of cookies, I'll be parked in Tubby Cove for quite some time.

For those who are into the photography thing, I used my Photoshop program with Pioneer Woman's "Seventies" action on these two photos and I really like how pink the sky looks.

Ok. I'm off to take another walk, or I'll be changing the name of my site to something like The Sisterhood of the Tubby Pants or maybe I'm Not Fat, I'm Fluffy.

Oh, my.

Until tomorrow, my friends . . .

I feel sure there were calories just from looking at those cookies you linked us to! Dear brother gave me what feels like a 10 lb. box of peppermint bark - my all time favorite. You'll see my black SUV at Tubby Park and I'll be stuck behind the wheel!

Oh yeah! Tubby Cove is where I belong after this past couple of weeks. I have long loved Bakerella. Isn't it a fantastic site? I just got a little sweet ipod to use while exercising. Hope that keeps me motivated.

Down the road from Tubby Cove is Jiggly Acres - that's where my backside will be parked.

I like the " I'm not fat, I'm fluffy" line, goes with my fluffy sheep. Unfortunately though, my sheep have an excuse to be fluffy, they ARE fluffy and they are pregnant, neither excuse works for me!Just eating too many yummies this Christmas season!

Oh, didn't you get the memo that all food consumed from December 1 to January 1 is calorie free?

That sign is priceless.

I'm fluffy because I'm still trying to work off my pregnancy weight gain...32 years later. That's my excuse, and I'm stickin' to it. Just point me in the direction of Tubby Cove.

I have a personal parking space at Tubby Cove. Didn't you see it? It has my name on it and everything... ;)

Enjoy your walk. Are you getting these freaky warm temps too?

Love that sign! I wonder if I could get one for my yard? (Scaled appropriately, of course.)

Fat, who's fat. I am classified as a chubette. Sounds better, right? That is why I am prone to summer. Tan fat looks better than white fat. Need to go and check out all they links on today's post. Will you walk for me? Happy Trails!

We live near Lookout Mtn. and Rock City. They have a trail that has a walk between huge rocks named Fat Man Squeeze which I am thinking that I might have a hard time going through.
Drink diet drinks with sweets it counteracts the calories.lol
Hope you are having a nice day.

It doesn't work that way does it. congrats on your anniversary. I'm sure glad that you started. (Mines been a year since the 23rd, great minds must think a like) Hope you had a GREAT Christmas!!

That's funny, I'm not fat, I'm fluffy. Cute.

DesertHen said...

Tubby Cove....that's funny! Love the pink sky in the photos.....

Kristin said...

Oh my! I think I need to stay away from that site!!! Not only has the holiday food padded my once little body, but recuperating from an appendectomy has rendered me lazy and unable to do anything about my nicely expanded midsection. Tubby Cove here I come!!! ROFLOL!!!

Daryl said...

I think you have a long way to go before you get to Tubby anything .. I refuse to look at the cookies, no I am not looking .. because I am just finishing Cookie Detox ...

Zabars has this extraordinarily delish Onion Potato bread .. sigh

Oh My Lord...you are too funny. The pics do look great with that action. We took advantage of the unseasonably warm weather and hiked at Rocks State Park yesterday. A little walk and some fresh air did the trick!

Rosezilla said...

Yep, I am DETERMINED to lose all the fudge off my hips... I believe I said that last January too. Now I have two Christmases of fudge to work off! Someone gave me sugar-free Russell Stover... maybe that can be a segway to a sugar-free life. Ya think?

willow said...

Yes, I'm feeling a bit on the tubby side, but not going to fret until next week. That's when I have to get really mean.

Kerri said...

Oh I LOVE the "I'm not Fat, I'm Fluffy" line! I think I'll have to use that.

Yes, I've been parking at Tubby Cove for quite a while :)

shara said...

I am already parked there and hooked up, gettin' ready to waddle on over to the side of the road and take a look... maybe there is some road kill i have missed??? (ooo, gross)

Woman in a Window said...

I just went over to the action pack and I'm always blown away over there and that they do it all to educate others and for free. Mind startling, really.

(Just baking cookies. Why? WHY? Why do I do this to myself? 'cause the kids will love them, right? Then why do I eat half the dough?)
