Well...here I am...
I really kicked Halloween's ass this year and successfully navigated all the candy traps and avoided ALL Halloween candy in all spaces and places. Hell, I even bought pretzels instead of the usual candy for the kitties.
I was AWESOME!
So, I get to work today and a friend of mine comes down to see me. As soon as I saw the full, rounded napkin, I knew something was up. She walked up to me and said, "Hey darlin'", and puts this napkin on my desk.
The napkin opens up and THIS is what I see:
Are you effing serious?!?!??!
I looked at Missy and said, "No Missy!!! I can't eat these!" She replied, "But you loved them!" I said, "Yes, I do, but my ass doesn't like them at ALL!" She said, "Awww bullshit, you can have one in the afternoon for a pick-me-up!"
She refused to take them back!!! This woman is the size of, oh, I don't know, Heidi Klum, and just as sweet as the day is long! She truly doesn't get the whole food issue thingie I have. I dunno - out of all the folks I know, I *know* she didn't mean anything by it and only had good intentions. Regardless of how much I weigh, she always tells me I look awesome.
Challenges come from all directions and with all intentions - it's amazing really. I so wasn't expecting that at all so early on a Monday morning. But I'm so glad that my strength and fortitude were in full gear. Otherwise,
it would have been difficult and I would have succumbed to the
One thing I do know is that if I had eaten a Snickers, it would have been a struggle NOT to eat another one...and then another one. Last week, I had a cookie and there was no problem at all stopping at one.
So what's the difference between the two? Is it the texture? the taste? the timing? I dunno. While it wasn't a struggle at all to not eat the Snickers, I knew that if I did, the story would change. Why was it easy to be objective about it? I dunno. I would be a rich woman if I did!
The rest of the day was nonstop and I ate lunch very late. Lunch was a salad of chicken, feta, lettuce, and pepper with some greek vinaigrette. Simple and tasty. Dinner was interesting - hamburger, hot sausage, and mushrooms. Somehow, we forgot to cook a vegetable! Macros for the day are great!
That's about it for the day. I'm still shaking my head about those Snickers!
