I was in the supermarket earlier (and don't I just love that most of them are 24 hour now, meaning I can work until 9pm and still get my veggies), when I happened to see a magazine proclaiming the 'best way to get a flatter stomach!'. Pah, I know their secrets. It's simple. Become an NQT. You too can experience the simple technique of - only having time for one meal a day. Eat it standing up, or marking, for that truly busy feeling - working your abs with lifting of books and computers - catching a nasty stomach virus from a child - stress related bowel complaints - living off tea - functioning on caffeine - sleeping 4 hours a night The weight will fall right off. Along with your hair. And your nails. And your skin. And energy. Seriously, am I the only NQT to have dropped a load of weight? People at work are starting to give me odd looks.
