What’s up, bloggies? So, I spilled the bean’s on last week’s gigantic gain, and tonight, I’ll elaborate on why it happened. I vowed to never be one of those fat people that’s like… “I don’t know WHY I’m fat… It’s just not fair!” I know full well why I’m fat… and it’s cuz I enjoy food in an unnaturally enjoyable way! It’s been a crazy two weeks with school getting back into full swing, and we’ve had house guests every weekend. This means gym time gets blown off, the beers and margaritas come out, and the dining out quotient goes up.
Here’s two examples of two not so good things I have very recently done that a skinny person would have ixnayed….
1) I like to cook. I like to cook good things for others. Valentine’s Day was the perfect excuse to try out the cake decorating kit I recently bought. Should somebody on Weight Watchers make 48 cupcakes? Even worse… should somebody on Weight Watchers make 48 cupcakes that are then swirled with a heaping mound of full-fat homemade buttercream icing? Nope. (But damn, were they good! And my co-workers enjoyed ‘em!)
2. Matt and I go to a little hole in the wall Southern restaurant every Valentine’s Day, and stuff our faces with fried chicken, hush puppies, black eyed peas and homemade macaroni and cheese. Tonight, we pulled up to the restaurant and let out collective gasps of horror when we realized it was closed. Our next choice? Cheesecake factory. 2 hour wait. Scratch that. Next choice? Not so unhealthy Thai. Closed. Scratch that. Next choice? Red Robin. For lowbrow yet surprisingly good cheeseburgers and bottomless steak fries. Oh yes. I went there, and had an awesome “Pub Burger” with fries. (BUT, I did not get a refill on fries. It’s the small things, people. The SMALL things.)
So, the story ends with me saying how I only ate half the burger, and then went to the gym and worked out diligently. HA – like I’d really do that. Of course I ate the whole thing, and now I’m about to take a bath with a glass of rich, fruit syrah and two pieces of See’s Candy. Fat, Schmat. I’ll start the diet tomorrow!
