Good court = BAD food choices!

Friday, April 26, 2013

Well, court went well. I ended up with just paying court costs, a slap on the wrist, and be good for 6 months. I love the 6 month thing but hey, I'm not arguing.

Court did last 4 hours - YUCK!!! It was horrible just sitting there, letting my mind wander. I had myself in jail with crack wholes welding sharpened spoons by the time I was called (boredom and a vivid imagination are a BAD combo). When the judge dismissed with just the $120 court cost, I think I was euphoric. Hubby was hungry so we went to his favorite Mexican restaurant. I ate in that euphoric state. 1600 calorie lunch!!! I need to learn two things about my food: 1) I need to make all food decisions in a relatively "emotionally neutral" state. 2) Every where hubby "just loves" the food should come with a warning label and flashing red lights! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

So, I'm home and changed. I have things that need to be done after hubby's class tonight, and I still have to decide on clothes and such for the race tomorrow. Right now, I think I'm going to WALK off some of that Mexican food. I couldn't run right now if my life depended on it (not a good day for the zombie apocalypse) but maybe I'll feel better with a nice walk.

I'll report on my race tomorrow evening.

Warm Wags all!

    My hubby also loves Mexican. I just can't eat it unless I plan to eat nothing else that day! Congrats on the court turn out!

    My husband and yours seem to be cut from the same cloth as far as restaurant choices go. Oy vey.

    Gotta hate that when you blow that many calories in one meal. But I hear you...It's so easy to get access to those calories in favorite restuarants and when we're in an emotional state the filters just don't seem to work as well. But we know what we have to do. Do NOT, I repeat, do NOT beat yourself up about it, but pick up and move forward. I know you will. You can do this.

    I am soo bad with the waiting thing. It's better if I have my phone.. or something to occupy my mind. Doing the court thing for the first time ever.. since there was a guy that ran onto our property a couple months ago.

    Not gonna even go to the eating thing.. We just have to move on once we indulge.
    Good luck tomorrow!

    Eating out is really hard, which stinks, because it's so enjoyable! Anyway, good luck with your race tomorrow!

    I'm glad it went well, but I'm sorry it took 4 hours to do it. My favorite restaurants should come with warning labels too.

    Good luck and enjoy your race tomorrow.

    Glad court went so well for you, even though you spent half your day there.
    As for the food, just tell yourself "the stress made me do it".
    Rest up, relax, and get ready for tomorrow.
    Good luck, you'll do great. emoticon

    I laughed when I read what you were imagining your punishment might be for a minor traffic infraction. Glad it didn't come to that. ;) You make a great point in your statement about being "emotionally neutral" when making food choices. We all need that! Good luck on your race tomorrow!

    Congratulations on the court thing. You were probably so relieved that you weren't even thinking about food.
    Good luck on the race.

    I am glad court was rather painless, sorry about the time out of your day, though.
    You might have been subconsiously carbo loading and fat loading for your race tomorrow!! You will be great tomorrow, I can feel it! Have a great race! emoticon emoticon

    It's ok! We've all been there/done that! It's just too bad that we can't go out to eat without really picking the menu apart to find something healthy AND within our calories! Eating out is just so hard at times!!!

    I can't wait to hear about the race! emoticon

    Geez! That is just too stiff a sentence!

    Oh, I feel your pain! Hubby called in sick (mental health day!) and we went out for lunch . . . I had a hamburger - yes, bun and all - at one of our local restaurants (not fast food). We were just chit chatting away and before I knew it, I'd eaten the whole thing.

    Have to admit to taking an alka seltzer when I got home! emoticon
    We shared a fruit plate for dinner, so I kept in calorie range, but oh my! what a cruel thing to do to my tummy!

    Hope you feel better soon..... emoticon

    If I ever make a zombie apocalypse movie I'm using that! Though, the chances of that happening are pretty low.
