Unless any of you are really curious or depend on it, I’m going to stop posting my daily list of points/foods. It doesn’t take that long to do but why bother if no one cares? I was mainly doin’ it for my friend Tim but he doesn’t look at it closely anymore stating that he’s got the idea. If anyone else wants it, I’d be happy to do it. Comment or drop me an email. I spelled out the email address cause I see other people do it. I think it has to do with avoiding spam? Anyone?
Around 5 pm, the power went out due to a storm. I had a crockpot meal cooking damn it! Closer to 6, still no power. I told Jim to skip the gym. 6:30, no power, the automated service says it’s due to be restored by 8pm. Jim suggested Macaroni Grill for dinner. I guess because I had just talked about not cheating much at all to a couple of friends today, I was eager to indulge tonight. Bad me. Not only did I cheat tonight but I REALLY cheated, ate like a pig and nearly blew all my weekly points away too.
Using Duke Energy’s automated service, I requested notification of restored power via my cell phone. After dinner no call (I called them again and the ETA was changed to 9pm) so we decided to walk off some calories in the mall. The problem is we ate Dairy Queen Blizzards. Oy.
I have several goals I wish would just fall into place. I want to be that person that loves to exercise. I want to be the person that can’t eat like I did without becoming ill. I want to “pay” for it. I want to “learn my lesson” for eating that way. That would be a nice incentive to be fit. I want to be that person that can eat a little of the dumb foods and be full. Someone who could have a tablespoon of ice cream and complain it’s too sweet. I want to eat a 1/4 of my portion and say, “Oh, I’m so full, I don’t know how people do it.”
It was now 9pm and no call. Jim suggested I call the house and see if the answering machine picks up. Brilliant. It picked up! Yay. Well we didn’t go straight home anyway. We decided to do some exploring. What’s up this road? What’s up that road?
I classified this post as a MISadventure mostly for the power outage but I’ve realized that the bigger deal should be about the way I ate.
