I'm back! Did you miss me?

Wednesday, February 24, 2010

So, I haven't blogged in a little while, and there's a very happy reason for this: I got to see my husband! That's right, folks, Dr. Twitchy got to spend four glorious days with her hunky husband, the Most Reverend Dr. Twitchy. How lovely.

Unfortunately, being with His Eminence was not lovely for the whole fitting-into-my-pants plan. No sirree, Bob. It was not good at all. By my (completely unrecorded) estimate, I probably consumed 12,000 calories over the time we were together. Yikes!

On the one hand, I am very blessed that after ten plus years of marriage, spending time with my man is a celebration. On the other hand, I need to learn to celebrate without, say, tacos. (We celebrated in some other ways, too, but this is a family-friendly blog.) And the scary thing is, I just kind of pulled "taco" out of the air, because I can't even remember what I ate when we were together. All I remember is thinking, "Probably I shouldn't eat that" (and eating it anyway) and thinking, "Probably I should stop after one serving" (and not stopping). So I totally ignored my diet to eat food that was so unmemorable that I can't remember it. (That last bit was your tautology for the day.)

So what have we learned here? First, we've learned that more of the x-rated celebrating and less of the g-rated celebrating will have to be part of my weekends with Hubby. Second, we've learned that husband=calories, so he will have to go. OK, I'm kidding. But I have learned that I need to be more mindful of what I'm doing. Third, we've learned that the inner voice saying "Put down the cookie" is actually my friend, and that friend may actually need to start slapping me if I don't start listening to her.

So, anyway, I'm back, and, unfortunately, there is slightly more of me to love. But not for long.

    Welcome back. I was gone for awhile too and I know what you mean about celebrating. It is very hard to connect "celebration" with salad and veggies. Celebrations when I think about my life included cakes and tables laden with food. I find that celebrating and letting myself celebrate with moderation. I tell myself that I can eat that cake but only what I need...there will be other celebrations. However, on the non-celebratory days, I work hard at doing well and eating those salads and veggies. Go out and celebrate but X-rated celebrations do burn more calories!!!

    You're sooo funny...you always make me laugh..and yes, I did miss you!!

    I know EXACTLY what you mean about husband = calories!!! When mine comes home from being on the road..he always wants to go out to eat and I accomodate him..lol. It was hard last time trying to feed him from home when we're used to going out...but we did go out for a nice Valentine's Day Dinner. Like you...it's so great just being with him...that..well, who can remember what you ate??? Not me!!! When he comes home in a week....we're going out to get a nice steak.. He said he wants steak and shrimp and lobster!!! What??? How can I sit across from him and munch on rabbit food??? No way!!! I just won't eat all day so I can overindulge at dinner! (X-rated burns calories and can be used for a good cardio workout!) lol...

    So glad you got to do happy dancin' with your hubby...I know how hard it is to be apart!

    Welcome back, friend... you'll get back on track...and it was worth it..just being together..calories or not!

    I missed you :) I totally understand the husband deal... mine is on a conference this week and I do so much better on the food... I eat not even that different, but I think I prepare food healthier (e.g. not fry the fish in a ton of butter...). Is your husband in the army? Anyway, I'm sure you'll get back on track soon - have a great weekend!
