I was so-o-o-o bad, but it tasted so-o-o-o good!
Started the day really good, nice normal Saturday other than it was the 4th of July and for the first time ever I had to take Dad to Dialysis on a Saturday (my sister had an opportunity to travel over the weekend!).
Good breakfast of fruit w/ cottage cheese and yogurt! Sampled 1/2 stick made by my dad, maybe 50 calories - I even shared it with his dog!
Wanted to grill some chicken but with a freezer full of chicken I couldn't find a single package from everything else being on top! No problem, I took out 2 Pork Sirloin chops. Even breaded and fried, I could work them into the day.
Went to Walmart's to pick up dad's prescription - pharmacy closed.
4th of July
Wanted to pick up Strawberries for neighbor that took time out of her day to buy Cream Cheese for me on sale with a limit - found Bing Cherries $2 pound! Yikes, I bought Bing Cherries for $2 pound and spent a small fortune!! Did you know you can freeze cherries?! Yup!! I now have loads of cherries on top of my hidden, never to be found again chicken!
Here's where the day got "oops-ed".
Got home and sampled quite a few cherries while attempting to make lunch. Do you remember me saying, "never allow yourself to get hungry?"
So I put the last of the fresh corn into a pot to boil, and thawed the pork the rest of the way and dredged them in a matzoh meal mixture and prepared to fry them. I had also found 1 chicken breast fillet and thawed it too. Yup, coated it as well - what do they say about "in for a dollar, in for a pound?"
Now is where it gets really scary - I never weighed my pork chop! Nope, just kept eating it!! So I estimated it to be about 12 ounces!! Yup, that is quite a portion. Had 2 ears of corn too, one before the pork, one after. It's ok, I cut the pork chop in half! But you guessed it, ate both halves.
Here's where the "in for a dollar, in for a pound," comes in. I wanted dessert so I had my regular dinner right after lunch - ice cream with cereal but this time topped with coolwhip! Believe it or not, at this point my day was still ok! A bit high, but not unacceptable.
So-o-o-o, what happened next you ask? DH was looking for crackers. OMG, I broke the 'cardinal rule' and didn't have a cracker in the house for him. So I opened a new box of Matzoh's and darn his hide, he only wanted half a board. I don't know what happened, but that other half a board just seemed to want me to put peanut butter and jelly on it! So, I made the matzoh happy and smeared it with pb & j and enjoyed! I think you can all see what happened next?! Yup, that half a board with pb & j asked me to get another board of matzoh ready! The only good news here is the board of matzoh is only 100 calories. The better news is by the time I had the 2nd board ready, DH said, "that looks good!" and I gave him half the board - the bigger half!!
The rest of the story is 2600 calories later and in the hole for my Calorie Deficit I got up off my butt and did a 3 Mile WATP with weights, followed by an 18 minute walk outside with DH. Finished my day with a Calorie Burn of 756 and a Calorie Deficit of 32!!
Don't you just love it when a plan comes together?!
Be careful out there, danger lurks in every bite!
