AKA The Day I ate Way Too Much Homemade Lasagna!
After last night’s festivities, I wasn’t expecting much from my weigh in this morning, and I was right. The scale and tape read at exactly the same things as last Sunday, despite being down two pounds for most of the week. Still, I know the scale will drop again and I had a wonderful night last night (thank you again to everyone that participated!) and wouldn’t trade any of it in for a better weigh in today.
I knew Mattie was going to make his amazing homemade lasagna for Richard and I for our birthdays tonight, so I made sure I ate light earlier in the day to minimize the damage later on because I knew I was going to over-do it, and I was oh so right. I probably shouldn’t eat for the rest of the week after tonight’s feasting. I know my birthday isn’t until tomorrow, but the weekend was pretty much dedicated to it in whole.
Around 5pm, Mattie headed into the kitchen to start cooking. And every time I even got near the kitchen over the next hour, I was shooed out in much the same manner as we chastise the dogs when they go into the kitchen. I finally settled for grabbing a beer, and sitting on the couch to “sulk” while I waited for dinner to be ready.
When it was ready, I had just opened my second beer, and we all sat down to eat. I ate my piece, then went back for seconds, choosing not to think about the P+ I was adding up on my plate. After I was finished, I put my plate in the sink and started on the math. The points were high already, but because I ate what was really way too much of it, they went from high to astronomical. I wasn’t kidding about not needing to eat again this week!
Here’s today’s food diary in all its horrifying glory.
|Coffee w/Milk & Sugar||1|
|Cottage Cheese & Pineapple||4|
|Tuna w/Italian Dressing||2|
|Coffee w/Milk & Sugar||1|
|Two Shocktop Beers||4|
I used up 25 of my weeklies in one fell swoop today! Boom! Half gone! Crazy, right? I’ll be on extra good behavior for the rest of the week, and hopefully using the first part of today to set an example for the rest of the week.
As you can see, I’m trying out a new theme on the site. Overall I love how clean it is, but I’m not sure I like the way it automatically excerpts the posts on the front page. I’d like to just do that using the “read more” tag as I have more control over each individual post. Still, overall its good.
I also seem to have something going on with my eye or eyes. My left eye had been watering pretty much nonstop all day yesterday so this morning I took out my contacts. My left eye is still watering pretty much non-stop and it itches. The right one is too a little bit, but I’m not sure if there’s something wrong with it or if its just being sympathetic to the other one. And of course the hypochondriac in me is entertaining ideas of pink eye, or maybe a sty growing on the inside of my eyelid. If it’s not feeling better tomorrow I guess I’ll need to visit the eye doctor and have it looked at. Right now, as it is, its driving me bugshit crazy.
I’m going grocery shopping tomorrow when I get up, and thinking about trying Albertsons for meat after I get everything else at Winco. I saw Albertsons has lamb and its not as expensive as I expected. I like lamb but its been years since I’ve had it, ad it would be a nice change up from the ton of chicken we usually eat. I’m just not sure if Mattie likes lamb or not.
Anyway, that’s all I’ve got. I’ll see you all tomorrow!
