Are You Gonna Eat That?

This week has been great...and not so much.

Great in that my mommy came over for a visit. We shopped til we dropped, we laughed, joked, had fun, played with the kids, and just all around had a great time.

Not so much in that we ate. And I mean ATE. If it wasn't nailed down or crawling away, I ate it this week. Think it wasn't so bad? Let me give you some examples: Fries, ice cream, cheeseburgers, breakfast burritos, soda, more fries, Orange Chicken and Rice from Panda Express, and still more fries. Oh, and part of a grilled cheese sandwich that my daughter wouldn't eat. Because I may have acted like a pig, but that sandwich could not be wasted! I am frugal! Where's my medal?

Anyhoo, how have you guys been? Doing well? Eating right? No? Well, join the club. But from this moment on, I am back on the wagon again. (that wagon must have great shocks for all the jumping on and off I am doing). I am going to go get a big ole glass of water with lemon and work on flushing all the preservatives and fats out of my system. I am going to get better sleep. I am going to exercise. I am going to be tired.

And also? I just found out I am going here, too:

The good thing is I am sure there will be absolutely NO fattening food there to tempt me. None whatsoever.

Question: Have you ever eaten so much that you wondered where you managed to put it all and why you still didn't feel satisfied?

No. I have never, ever done that. I don't count the time I consumed an entire pan of brownies whilst watching Michael Caine in the riveting Jaws 4- the Revenge on WGN at 1am and then wondered if I needed a bowl of bran flakes to top it off. No, I have never done that. You must be a freak.

Well, I was having a good week until Saturday. Lunch at Crown burger, dinner out, ugh. But I did go to Curves 2 times and walked 8 miles and lost one pound this week (before Saturday), so I'm still thinking that's a positive week.

I've added you to my blogroll, take a look!

Yes, I have eaten like that. It usually happens when I am craving something particular and I try substituting. Never works

Robyn, That must explain why we are friends...Freaks Unite!

Paige, Good girl this week..well, until Saturday. But great job on the exercising and making good choices otherwise. Now back on that wagon, girlfriend! Thanks for adding me to the roll...

Starving, Yes, you are absolutely right. It is when I really want something else and try to fill that void with something I didn't really want.

Yes, definitely! Don't know why.
