I’ve been a bad, bad girl

Did you get the reference? You know, cuz that’s a Fiona Apple lyric? Ok, well, anyways…. I have been bad. Very bad. It all started with my sister coming down to visit. I don’t know what it is about visitors that makes me shed every decent habit I’ve acquired, but I PIG the eff out when I have guests in town. It started with the delicious breakfast I made on Saturday morning – scrambled eggs, bacon, pancakes. Then we went shopping in North Hollywood and had Chicago hot dogs with onion rings at Vicious Dogs . Then we used my groupon for Famous Cupcakes and I picked up a half a dozen of assorted butter-bombs of cake and frosting, including the Oreo Cookie cupcake.

Then we went home, laid around for a while, and ordered Big Mama and Papa’s pizza – one with fresh tomato and the other with pineapple and ham. One redbox trip later we were watching Natalie Portman and Ashton Kutcher have random sex in the movie No Strings Attached while stuffing our gullets with pizza. I opened a bottle of white zinfandel and drank one glass. And then another. And then one more. And then another. And then, I realized I was drunk, and the potato chips and sour cream and onion dip came out.

Intoxication + junk food = disgustingly awesome diet fail. I can’t blame it on the a-a-a-a-ah-alcohol (another song reference!! Did you get that one?). I have to be honest with myself that I have a problem with self control, and apparently a guest coming to visit is a special occasion for me and I go kookoo for cocoa puffs (or in this case, cookies n’ cream cupcakes.) I usually don’t eat that much junk food in a month combined, so you can bet my stomach has been a little gurgly today. Since I always try and find the positivity in something crummy, I feel like I gorged on so much crap that I really just feel like eating CLEAN the next week or so. I’m going to try to wean myself off of sugar and keep on the regular fitness. I could guilt trip myself pretty heavily about this, but I’m not going to. It was one day, and while I made bad choice after bad choice, life will go on and I will be okay.

What was the most sinful thing you ate this weekend? For me, it was the chips and dip!!

  1. You better be extra good the next 2 weeks, you have company coming in again too! Which means a trip to Portillos and then a graduation party.

  2. I was working at my friend’s wedding this weekend, so that meant three days of fast food, rehearsal dinner, big breakfasts, long periods of no eating, and then wedding meal. My metabolism is shot!

  3. This post made me laugh so hard I actually cried! Hee hee hee! It is good to know I am not the only one. So now what to bring for Saturday evening… hmmmm… 🙂
