I have been crabby with a Capital C this week, and I suspect the biggest reason is the lack of sunshine. Had I been better prepared, I would’ve started taking my vitamin D on Sunday. Supposedly, the sun will come out on Friday. We’ll see.
Because of my funk and because of other things getting in the way, I haven’t cooked anything since Saturday. Sunday, Jay & the bambino took me out to Texas Roadhouse for Mother’s Day, where I ate WAAY too much. Monday night, I was in such a bad mood and just feeling sorry for myself, that despite my last post swearing it off forever, I went to McDonald’s, and practiced the fine art of emotional eating. Ridiculous. And it came back to bite me today, as I gained over 2 lbs. at weigh-in. Joy.
Because last night was a baby shower for a woman who not only lives across the street from me, but is also the person I credit with finding the house that Jay & I eventually bought (even though she didn’t know me from Adam at the time!), I got pizza for Jay & the bambino while I ate at the shower. Something that after 5 1/2 years of living in South Dakota which still baffles me is the fact that out here, Sloppy Joes are not referred to as Sloppy Joes. They’re called “barbecues.” And I have yet to determine why. Not that it matters to me all that much, because I can’t stand the things, and only eat them under duress or to be polite, but I find it odd.
For whatever reason, once I got home, I decided to continue my 48-hour binge and eat a couple pieces of pizza, as well as a few breadsticks. All the day before weigh-in. Real smart, Rachel.
And because I now have 6 weeks to lose 7+ lbs., in order to get my reimbursement back from the bank, I opted to make some beef & noodles for dinner, instead of chicken-fried steak. I wanted comfort food, because of the dreary weather, and the beef & noodles is a little lower in fat.
I opted to skip dessert this evening, just because I think I’ve done enough damage to myself for one week, but I wanted something to cap off dinner, so I made myself some decaf:
I think I need to plan out a bunch of healthy options for the next few meals. I guess I’ll be going back to smoothies for breakfast (minus all the PB and granola), and I’m going to have to get serious about tracking and staying within my points. I really only need to lose 11 lbs. (well, now it’s 13) to get to my goal weight. And I’ve got about 6 weeks to do it.
