When I Don't Post For a Few Days...

I am either eating horribly or traveling or a combination of the both.

It all went downhill with the bag of peanut butter pretzels covered in chocolate on Tuesday night that weren't even that good. When will I learn not to go to the grocery store hungry?!?!? Wednesday night I had a decent workout at the gym and then got dinner out when I really should have just eaten at home. I did make it to the gym also for a 1 hour walk on the treadmill as well. Thursday I bought a super unhealthy lunch of chicken fingers and fries. Not gym because I was speaking to a group of students. I wanted to go after the event, but it was a little too late. Today I ate my frozen meal and went to the gym for an hour and a half. But, please for the love of god. Someone take the chocolate away from me!

In other news I am going to Louisville on Tuesday to see the Kings of Leon! I found a great pair of tickets for face value a few days ago! Score! Other than that, nothing too exciting to report.

Have a wonderful weekend. I will be going to the gym tomorrow AND Sunday!

A Lunch Time Conversation With Myself

So I went to lunch with a co-worker and one of our friends today. While we were waiting for our friend I have the following conversation with myself:

Voice: MMMMM, I am hungry.
Voice #2: All this food looks so good! Look! Club sandwhiches. Soup in breadbowls. FOOOOOOOOD!
Voice: I just need to stick with the plan of a Veggie Spud.
I inch closer to the cash register and can now see desserts.
VOice #2: Mmm, those cookies look good. mmmm that pie looks good. I don't even know what kind of pie it is, but man it looks good.
Voice: I do not need to eat dessert with every meal.
Voice #2: But it all looks so good. Maybe I could just get a cookie and split it?
Voice: No. I don't need dessert. Especially at lunch.
Voice #2: Oh look! Cheese dip with Rotel! Droooooooooool!
Voice: Yeah, it does sort of look good, but it comes with Tostitos and if I am going to eat chips and dip I want the chips to be worth it. Tostitos are so not worth it. Plus when I get an app before a meal I always overeat and feel too stuffed. Plus it is lunch and I don't need an app before lunch.

I inch closer to the register and am about to place my order
Voice: I need to order the veggie spud.
Voice #2: But the Spud max sounds good too. And protein. Mmm, meat is good too.

I place my order:
"I'll have the spud max."

The spud max has ham, cheese, olives, green onions, bacon, and sour cream and salsa on the side. I ate half.

You can't win them all. A spud max is much better than any of the other options running through my head at the time.

The Scale Part 2

For serious. I have been watching what I eat, working out, drinking my water and the scale has stayed consistently at the same weight. It did move this morning, but in the wrong direction. It showed a 3 lb gain. So at least I can rest easy knowing that my scale isn't broken. It moved the wrong direction, but I know what that is from. I ate some (and by some I mean a lot) candy last night. I should have just gone to bed. I was tired. I ate it and I am moving on. But it is so hard not to get discouraged.

I know that my body has not been 100% due to the cold/funk I got last weekend. And I do know I had incorporated weights back into my gym routine. So I am hoping I am gaining muscle. I know my clothes are fitting better. But still it always helps when I can see the scale move down as well.

I am off to the gym...
