Today Sucks and You Do Too

Monday, September 24, 2012

OK, you don't actually suck. Whoever is reading this is actually awesome, I am sure. But it is a rainy day and my mood is even darker this afternoon.

I am not a particularly emotional person. In fact, just hearing me speak is like listening to a female version of Ben Stein, without the belief in Creationism or the multimillion dollar advertisement deals. I am that monotone.

So when I have a day like today, I seem to let it all out all at once. I have done next to nothing but sit on my couch watching My 600 Lb Life streaming from YouTube while I cry like a teenage girl dumped at her prom. Seriously, it has been a pathetic day for me.

In all, today has just been craptastic. I woke up to my monthly visitor, which is fine except the first day is always miserable. I forced through my lethargy and got dressed to take my daughter to school. Then we went and got some breakfast, as we were in a hurry to eat something and get to the store.

Now, we only eat out maybe twice a month at this point. I am usually pretty good at ordering, but we never get breakfast. So I had no idea how to compensate for calories, and I didn't have my phone with me to check it out on the way.

I thought to myself, "Hey, Carls Jr is pretty bad with their lunch stuff but Daniel wants to go. So I will get a breakfast burrito...it has to be better than one of their sandwiches!"

Yeah, I don't know if that is true or not. But I do know that the breakfast burrito I had was 710 calories and 48g of fat.

My. God.

So, that was a bad choice that made me a little edgy and guilty. I tried to compensate with the food I chose for the rest of the day, and I did alright. My calorie range is going to be fine, though I will have gone over my fat by 10 grams. There is just no way to avoid that, even though it is healthy fat for the rest of the day.

I have done most of my strength exercises, but like I said: I am very lethargic and sick today. It was all I could do to eat past my lack of appetite and keep my calories up thanks to SP bumping the amount again (I have been going over my weekly exercise so it adjusted accordingly). I am planning on doing some aerobics and a new SP video core workout.

On another note, I gotta stop watching these extreme weight loss shows. They just make me feel so depressed, even with the success of the people. Or maybe that is just my hormones talking.

Either way, tomorrow will be better and blah blah blah. Now, if you will excuse me, I am going to further neglect my mounting workload and watch a YouTube clip of sobbing woman while I contemplate the horrors of my own mass.

    Never even heard of the show, but I'm checking it out now...
    Hope you're feeling better in a hurry!
    Don't worry about today's breakfast. You had the right intent but it just didn't work out favourably. And you managed to stay on track the rest of the day, which is pretty impressive and awesome.

    Ugh, I hate days like that.

    Good work on doing your workout, even though you had a crappy day. I hope tomorrow is better.

    OMG, WE HAVE GOT TO SHARE A SOUL. I too watch those weight loss shows and ball my eyes out. I feel so horrible for them, for me, for everyone.

    I feel ya on the monthly visitor. Mine throws a GIANT wrench in the works also.

    I had a similar food situation on Saturday. We took the kids for a hike and planned on stopping at Wendys on the way home. The cashier was so rude to me that we decided to go elsewhere. My husband decided he wanted Applebees car side to go. I searched the menu and decided to have one of their soup and sandwich lunch combos. My options were chili, broccoli, or onion. I decided broccoli would be good and paired it with a wrap that sounded light. Chicken Fajita roll up. I enjoyed my lunch and then got home and checked the calories. My sandwich was 510 CALORIES OVER 1000 CALORIES IF I HAD ATE THE WHOLE THING. I was so disappointed. When I make chicken fajita, they are NEVER 300 calories, let alone 1000.

    Don't worry about the past, it's in the past. All that matters is the future.
