Well, that pretty much says it all. I've been on a week-long food binge and exercise purge. All food, no exercise does not make for happy results on the scale. I gained 2 (more) lbs this week. Frankly, I am surprised it wasn't more. This has been a no holds barred binge. For some, a binge may mean they ate too much ice cream one night or have an extra slice of pizza or too many chips with their sandwich. PUH-leeeeeease. A binge for me means I eat anything and everything I want, and some things I don't want just because I'm in that mindset.
Here are some of the lovely things I have eaten this week:
1) ice cream (pretty much every night)
2) cheetos, doritos, chips
3) fried chicken
4) pizza (and not just a slice or two)
5) McDonald's sausage biscuit
6) Chinese carry-out
7) Cheese steak sub
8) French fries (with gravy)
9) A million ounces of Diet Coke
Are you ready to vomit yet? And, that is just a sampling. Am I embarrassed to write this down for all the world to see? You bet I am. But, what would be the point of a weight-loss blog (I might have to change the name of my blog if this trend continues) if I am not honest about the struggles.
So, am I ready to motivate myself again? Eh, not really. My birthday is this weekend, and I am kind of in the mind set that I will re-commit myself after my birthday. I guess that would actually be re-re-commit myself since I was supposed to re-commit myself last week.
I haven't read any more of the wonderful books I ordered. Hard to turn the pages when my fingers are so busy stuffing food into my face. Besides, even if I did read while eating, I'd have to keep licking the beautiful bright orange processed cheese off my fingers before I could turn the pages.
So, I end the blog not knowing what I plan on doing this week. Honestly. I don't know.
