Quick Confession

So this morning got up, headed straight to breakfast: asparagus, mushroom, and egg-white on everything bagel w/yogurt parfait and coffee

Then headed to our friends' house to watch the first game where we nibbled on fruit and veggie trays: baby carrots, cauliflower, honeydew, watermelon, cantaloupe, tomatoes, celery, water.

Then, after the game was over, headed to the sports bar to watch the second game with our other friends: pizza, wine (1 glass), water.

As much as I hate to admit it, I have NO IDEA what my calorie count was today and I'm sorry to all of you.  Today is the very first day where I've truly just gone through the day without obsessing over counting.  It will not become a habit.  Tomorrow will be right back on the wagon as I have been so far.

I'm nervous about the weigh-in tomorrow due to the uncertainty of today.  I don't think I did horrible but I know I didn't do great (stupid fracking delicious half-priced pizza) and there is a big giant space in between that is gray ... I'm somewhere in there.  It could be 1,300 or it could be 2,000 ... I honestly don't know.


I'll be happy when football season is over though ... I'm fairly certain that my weekends will be more normal after Super Bowl Sunday because we don't really go to sports bars a lot except for during football season - especially playoffs.  Plus softball season is starting soon which is actually really good; I don't play softball because I have an irrational fear of the ball but I plan on spending the games walking laps around the outside of the field while "Temptation" plays.  I am also hoping to get us both into a habit of arriving an hour or so before the games each week so he can stretch and walk with me to warm up his muscles.

I'm not off the wagon - that's the important thing to remember.  I hit a bump but I didn't fall out.  Tomorrow will be business as usual.


  1. It happens is called LIFE!!! We are trying to live a healthier one..But I can tell you this..I dont want to be that person that is laying on their death bed saying that I lived a misserable life because I spend every misserable minute of my life worried about every calorie I put in my mouth. You had a good time. Leave it at that. Tomorrow is a new day!!Shit happens don't beat yourslef up. The important thing is that you don't continue it everyday. But there is no way that anyone can say that they never have one of these days..If they do they are lieing!! You know it and I know it and they do to!! ( :

  2. Shit happens. Im not a football fan and hubby isnt ordinarily but, there's something about those big important games that makes all kinds of unlikely watchers hunker down and stare at TV screens everywhere! I had an involutary impluse pop into my head--like lets buy a ton of snacks and stuff to eat while we watch--then promptly bitchslapped myself. LOL. There are So many occasions where food plays a big role.
    Anyway, aside from the pizza you probably didnt do a ton of damage.
    Like you said, back on the wagon and business as usual!

  3. Unless you ate half a pizza alone, I don't see anything wrong with how you ate.

  4. Like Rene said, you don't want to be on your death bed looking back on how you tortured yourself over calorie counting. If I am not mistaken, this whole journey is to get you to a happy, healthy place. Once you reach that you should be eating healthy and exercising regularly and not counting calories everyday for the rest of your life (I hope). The point is that you didn't obsess, you didn't freak out and you still ate very healthy and reasonably. Which means you realy are changing your life in a good way. You should be congratulated for that! So WAY TO GO YOU! :)


  5. Thank you all for being positive; I wasn't sure what kind of reaction I would get for this confession but I wanted to be honest. I had actually thought about just not posting anything at all for yesterday but I made a commitment to this blog and I wanted to at least do my best to keep it.

    Tia: Wanna help me teach my dog how to bark on command? Also, meeting Buddha has made me want to get a big dog that I can go walking/jogging with. I want a puppy, of course, because of the cat and Piper but I'm thinking of going with a Doberman ... ya know, I big version of Pips. ;) If you hear of any up for adoption let me know k?
