Dieting Blues…

It’s been awhile since I felt like I was serious about this weight loss. It started to be a problem when the Twizzlers came home. I still haven’t opened them, though I know where they are. I know the benefits of a healthy diet always out-weigh the joy of eating. But, it is difficult. I think not enjoying cooking and even if I did enjoy it – I rarely have time to do it. And, I love, love, love going out to eat. If I could eat every meal out – I would. And I am aware that I can order healthy things, and I actually often do. But, there’s still something decadent about going out.

We also haven’t been going to the the Y on a regular basis. I don’t care for the atmosphere at the Boyertown YMCA. I was used to the Spring Valley Y, and I did have issues with that Y as well, I liked it better. I do complain a lot. Sometimes I wonder how the Emperor can stand it. He knows how negative I can be.

My fall from grace and weekend shame…

It’s been a rough, although delicious weekend. I did not make one healthy choice this weekend – no, not one. It started with breakfast at CDs on Saturday morning. I ordered what is now know as “Beth’s Omelet”, which consists of 2 eggs (the regular omelets have 3), cheddar cheese and sausage – all well-done. This comes with home fries and an english muffin. Fortunately, I was unable to finish it, in fact I don’t think I even ate half of it, but that was not my intention.

After breakfast, I took my daughter shopping for some much-needed winter school clothes. She received a McDonalds gift card for Christmas and took me out to lunch. We dined on Big Macs and Chicken McNuggets. She tasted a Big Mac for the first time (used to get an “ewwwwwwwwww”), and now it’s a “wow – that’s great”. Unfortunately for her – she really liked it. And as a thank you gesture for taking me out to lunch – I took her to Cold Stones for ice cream. I had a small (that was the only good decision I made there) chocolate with brownies, fudge and cookie dough. She had a small chocolate with rainbow sprinkles, snickers and fudge. All very good, but oh so bad.

We went to a family “thing” for dinner. I never felt so trapped. We munched on chocolate chip cookies, cheese, coke, 2/3rds of a piece of pizza and crab dip with cream cheese. Fortunately, I was able to get us out of there quickly and avoid eating even more crap. On the way home, since I was feeling deprived of any real dinner we treated ourselves to a Snickers Brownie Ice Cream Sandwich – a new frozen novelty that the Emperor so kindly introduced me to.

Sunday was a bit better. We started off with church and the after church breakfast took us back to CDs place where I had a sausage and cheese on an english muffin with home fries and a coke. We had a late lunch at one of our favorite places in Boyertown – Durangos Saloon. I had half of a buffalo chicken wrap and the best fries ever and the other half of the Emperors Cuban sandwich. The hot sauce on the buffalo chicken was too much for me so we traded other halves. Then we went to the Super Bowl party at my mother’s house.

Fortunately I don’t come from a drinking family – just eating. Somehow the world views that as better. I’m not sure, but I suppose you can become obese from either. We just don’t have the liver problems – only cardiovascular. I only had a small piece of chocolate cake and a few chocolate candy pretzels there – could have been much worse.

I think that was all I consumed from my fall from grace. Anyway, the results are apparent as I stepped on the scale this morning and gained 5 of the 6 lbs that I lost last week – back.

I’m back on track as of this morning. I had a small bowl of Bran Chex this morning for breakfast and I will be having a chocolate Smoothie for lunch.

Crackhead Dog Disrupts Diet

My son begged and we took in a dog that belonged to a woman who’s on crack, but is now in rehab and the dog had no place to go – until my son came along and offered to take in the pooch. Well, my son is 18, has a very full life – two jobs, lots of friends and lot to do. Of course, he insisted that he would care and be responsible for the dog. I knew this wouldn’t happen – but, I agreed anyway.

Well after two full days of cleaning up dog pee throughout the house, and a night without sleep – I’ve had it. My son’s life has not been altered in the least. He’s gone out every night since he brought the dog home. We’ve walked, fed and cleaned up after the dog. This morning, after not getting any sleep last night because of the dog, and finding pee all over the birthday gifts the Emperor got for his daughter – I woke up my son and said that the dog had to get a new home by 11am – or I was driving the dog to the ASPCA.

I am sorry about the crackhead dog – he’s a very nice dog. But the crackhead has to realize that if she’s going to do crack – there may be some consequences – such as losing your dog.

Day 10…

I forgot to write yesterday, but it was a day, not unlike every other day. I did actually run out of the Chocolate Right Size Smoothie mix before the new tub arrived. So – no shakes yesterday. I did have a bowl of Khashi for breakfast, Emperor Anton made me a tuna sandwich for lunch – very good, even though it had egg, relish and Miracle Whip in it. I had a McDonald’s double cheeseburger for dinner. I don’t think I had dinner until after 10pm. I had to go to science fair at my daughters’ school and never had a chance to eat dinner before the fair.

I did, however, go to the Y again, and that’s always good.

I’ll be curious to check my weight at the end of this week, since I feel as if I’ve been off course already. I’m thinking I will have stayed at the same weight or perhaps even gained a pound, hopefully no more than that.

I’ve discovered that the older I get – the more difficult it is to lose weight. I don’t feel like I’ve become less active – quite the contrary, but perhaps it’s hormonal. Not sure – but it’s a drag.
