Eats for Friday 2/18/11

My eating was weird for Friday due to the sudden onset of what I like to call The Bubble.

The Bubble is this evil thing that happens in my belly every now and then. It feels like someone has taken a bicycle pump and just keeps inflating my innards until I feel like I'm going to pop. My belly looks and feels like there is a giant beach ball full of lead in there.


Nothing moves (you know what I'm talking about) so I can't get any relief. Things don't typically move for a day or two after it hits.

Again with the hotness. Can you stand it?

When it happens, it hurts like hell. I can't walk upright. I can't move all that well or fast. I get all sweaty and clammy. And I can't eat.
Why would I want to cram anything down my throat and make The Bubble angry?


So, that hit me around lunchtime and I wasn't able to eat anything until dinner time. I was able to go for a walk, which was nice. The Bubble let up just enough so I could move and not look like a woman in labor trying to get herself to the hospital via one very muddy sled dog minus the sled and the snow.

Anyone heard of such a thing? Please diagnose me. I welcome your medical expertise.

Eats for Thursday 2/17/11

The Sickness has left me and it was gorgeous out today. Skye girl and I decided to hit the trail.
Well, I decided and forced her to get in the jeep, which she hates. It involves a step stool and some lifting and a lot of canine anxiety.
Anyway, I was surprised to find the trail with so much snow and ice left over.

Skye girl didn't mind. She was having a blast. She also seemed to enjoy all the mud puddles she found along the way. That dog just loves getting dirty! She's such a redneck princess!

I got quite a workout trudging through all that slush for an hour. :)

Eats for Wednesday 2/16/11

I got hit with The Sickness Tuesday night. It felt like I had eaten a dozen burritos full of rotten jalapenos and bad cheese with a side of day old refried beans.
Yeah. My stomach was a little upset.
That's enough about that though.

It did effect my eats a little. Mainly because I just couldn't eat. I was sipping on ginger ale most of the day. When my appetite came back, I was too weak from lying in bed watching Bones all day to go get or make any food so I ordered a pizza.

It was either that or an entire jar of honey wheat pretzels with a side of Tagalongs. Don't judge me.

Judge The Sickness.

Thought for the day:
Thank God my bout with The Sickness wasn't as bad as some have had it.

Weigh in.

Weigh in day!
I lost 2 pounds this week! Woohoo!

I feel like I'm getting some of my motivation back. The snow is melting away and it's warming up enough to get outside and walk without having a hundred layers on. Skye and I went for a 35 minute walk yesterday and it felt really good. I even worked up a sweat.

I think my motivation also comes from the party I recently attended. I just felt so fat and gross and it really held me back from having a good time. I don't want to feel like that anymore.

My obstacle this week is the absence of MB. I think we all know how I can stray without supervision! He's gone until Monday which means I am on my own for meals. My goal is to avoid eating out and stick to my planned meals. This means hitting the grocery store today or tomorrow to make sure I have everything I need. No excuses.

My other obstacle this week is this...

That is the Valentine's Day package I received from my mother yesterday. It contains two boxes of Girl Scout cookies and a bag of milk bones for Skye. I think I can avoid eating the milk bones, but the cookies have me concerned.

I've already told MB about the Thin Mints (which are his favorite) via facebook, so I know I can't eat them. If I do, I then have to go hunt down a Girl Scout to replace them before he returns. That's a lot of work. I'm just going to put them in his man cave and forget about them.

As for the Tagalongs (which are my favorite), I plan to portion them out once I figure out the points value. Hopefully I can control myself enough to enjoy them without eating the whole box in one sitting.

Pray for me people. Those things are the devil.

My other goal is to walk with the pup at least 3 days this week and do Slim in 6 at least one day. I know I can do it.

So, how was your week?

Eats for...well, the weekend.

Yeah. I'm playing catch up.

It's been a busy few days for me and I haven't had a chance to come over here and post my eats. That seems to happen to me a lot. I think I'm going to have to start setting aside time each day to do it. That will be one of my goals for this coming week.

So, I won't go back and post for each day I've missed. That would be pretty boring. I did tally up all of my eats and I'm doing okay. I have used up all but 3 of my weekly points. That's not too bad, considering I went to a party Saturday night and then out to dinner with the girls Sunday night.

I only had 2 beers at the party and they were not light beers. My gracious host had Stella. I heart Stella. I could've easily had seven more and joined in on the karaoke competition. Or taken a whack at the pinata full of condoms.

Seems that I left a little too early. Or maybe right on time.

There was so much food there, but I limited myself to one portion of a cold cut sub and some veggies with dip. I also ate a boob cookie. It's just easier if I don't explain that one.

Moving on...Sunday night was dinner with the girls at a little Cuban cafe. The food was so yummy. It was easily the best meal I've had in a really long time. The guacamole was amazing. I don't regret a single point.

MB and I also went out for brunch today since we are not going to see each other for 7 days. I don't regret a single point from that meal either.

I am feeling more motivated to get back on track though. There were cameras at the party and I was again captured on film. Those pics are now immortalized on facebook. It makes me cringe every time I see them. I just look so uncomfortable.
That's exactly how I felt too. I felt fat, disgusting, ugly and unworthy. Even with my spanx on.

I don't want to feel like that anymore. I want to be able to go out with my friends and enjoy myself. I don't want to have to feel so gross all the time.

Tomorrow, I will be walking the pup halfway around the neighborhood. Weather permitting, we might even hit the trails. It's time to move my fat ass.

I'm ready.

So, how was your weekend?
