In which I was a bad, bad girl.

Oh, c'mon. I know what you're thinking. I wasn't that kind of bad girl.

Yesterday, all I wanted was some Pseudofed PE, honest. And a sugar-free energy drink. I didn't have any coffee yesterday morning and by mid-day I was fading fast. Plus, the juniper-cedar count here is super high, meaning I'm all stuffy.

Sooooo, I went over to the hospital gift shop, where they keep bags and bags and bags of snacks. No, and BAGS. And bags. They beckon to me. Oh, how they sing their sweet, seductive crunchy song. In particular, Poor Brother's Sweet Maui Onion Kettle Fried Potato Chips. They, yes they, sang the sweeeeeetest song of all.

This wasn't a grab bag, either. or a "snack," although that's where I listed it for my calorie intake for the day. I mean, it's not like it was lunch, or anything.

Yes. In answer to your question, yes. The whole bag.

Then Baboo came back from an out-of-town day trip and suggested eating out, and well, hell yes, so I had PeiWei tofu and vegetables and lots of brown rice, because they make it better than anyone. Oh, and a large glass of Pino.
I didn't run yesterday, either. I forgot my pants. Can't run without pants. Or else I'd be the other kind of bad girl.

It's just so sad.

It doesn't, you know, matter that I'm 5'6". 3000 calories is still 3000 calories. A banner day for the eating machine known as me.

Today, I will forgive myself, and be better.

<-- Oh, and PUFFY. yes, I woke up, feeling like this.



  1. That picture of the puffer fish (from Finding Nemo??) is absolutely PERFECT for the way I feel when I have too much sodium (or just too much food). It absolutely tickled my funny bone. Hope only healthy foods sing that sweet song to you today. Have a great weekend.

  2. Hey 3k calories aren't bad... if you are training for an IM! :)

  3. i have been feeling puffy lately too, and eaten wayyy too much over the past week+. hope you've forced yourself back on track and not continued down the slippery slope like i have :(

  4. Could've been worse.

    Could have been the Frankfurter Spectacular.

    I like potato chips a lot.

  5. Confession Time: Last Wendsday I ate, Fruit Loops for breakfast, Wendy's for lunch, and Pizza for Dinner!!!

    WTF? Confession over.....

  6. I have the great good fortune to get horrible gas when I eat potato chips so I can't eat them unless I'm willing to endure farting like a pack mule. In general, I am not.

  7. Now, did we need to know that?

    I think not. :)
