Holy Hell, Hamburger!
Tuesday, July 05, 2011
So today would be the worst day I've had in a while, diet-wise, to cap off the worst week I've had in awhile, food-wise.
My employment terminated this week [no worries guys- it was a contract position so I always knew it would happen] and my co-workers threw a potluck for the employees leaving...and then there was a staff dash to 5 Guys for lunch of my last day to get together out of the office, and then suddenly I was unemployed, wanting nothing more than to spend my free time lounging in my pjs before getting ready to go out on celebratory dinners [I'm kind of a big deal =P ].
But I swear I did okay yesterday guys! Sure, I had pizza, but I even budgeted for it by only having tuna for lunch! And it was bland tuna so I EARNED that pizza!
Today, however, was a cook-out. And a national holiday, the most dangerous of all days to be on a diet. So in true American style, I consumed a hamburger- for the first time in a year. It was delicious, don't get me wrong, but even though it was a small burger [whole sandwich fit in the palm of my hand], I couldn't finish it. I took 2-3 bites and then donated it to the hungry-boyfriend clause.
Now, this does not sadly erase the 4[!] Mike's Hard Lemonades I downed while lounging poolside, or the 3 [sigh] beers I had while playing beer pong.
But I learned my lesson, my stomach has been fighting me over this hamburger for the past two hours....so it looks like the Hamburger has joined its companion Fried Chicken over in the world of You-Will-Need-Alka-Seltzer-Aft
I'm kind of mad at myself for even having the burger in the first place, but I'm also excited that my body won't let me eat that way anymore. I've changed so much from the person I was, that my own body doesn't recognize the food that I used to eat on a weekly basis.
And now I just cannot wait to go back to my healthy routine tomorrow, it's going to be a beautiful day.
