Salad Bomb.

Well, here we go again.

I worked from 8 am this morning non stop until 8 pm tonight, and let me just say I was FAMISHED by the time I finally left my last appt.  Don't get me wrong, I didn't starve through out the day or anything, it was just late by the time I was done with my last appointment, and much later than I usually have dinner, so I got super hungry.  After I sat pondering options for a few minutes in the car, I opted for dinner to go from a fabulous little spot close to the office to take home.  The portions are pretty large at this place but I've become pretty good at keeping my portions small and under control and even though it's not a necessarily healthy salad that I chose, I trusted myself and my choice so mostly I was just excited for a tasty dinner (You know where this is going).

When I finally got home I couldn't wait to dig in; I opened up the lovely box and began to dig in delightfully whilst chatting with my mom on the phone.  As we discussed the latest gossip my phone beeped to let me know that I had an incoming call, and when I looked to see my boss on the other line (at 9 pm at night), I knew something was up.  I immediately clicked over and what he had to tell me wasn't the best news I'd heard all day.  In fact, it wasn't really good news at all, and before I knew it, I polished off the whole salad, dressing, sour cream, tortilla strips, pork and all.  Sigh.

Don't worry, the work thing is fine; just another day in the beauty industry.  The whole point of this post is not to crab about work as much as it is to say that basically I'm giving up on this week.  While I will still eat on point tomorrow and still work out, I don't have high hopes (or any hopes for that matter) for my weigh in on Sat.  I'm disappointed because I wanted this week to be great and it just didn't turn out that way.  I know it's my fault; I'm not making excuses.  I just hope I can do better next week.




  1. Diz, i feel you about this week. i messed up today, i am very sorry to say. but, like you, i'm not going to let my mood ruin the (unpromised) future.

    i want to read about you eating well tomorrow and working up a serious sweat! leave this day in the dust, where it belongs!

  2. Next week will be better - especially if you get back on track right now!

  3. Don't let the turkeys get you down. You know what you could have done better and next week you will (*_*)

  4. Never give up! And everyday is a fresh start Diz! You deserve the effort. Don;t be your own worst enemy, so you ate a calorie laden salad. It just gives youinsite into next time. Like you divide the salad up before you even eat. Rooting for you girl

  5. Happy thoughts darling. You probably did better then you thought. But Im with you...tortillas are my downfall...

  6. Just gotta roll with it. Life happens. HUGS

  7. Hey girl, I'm not having a great week either, you know how excited I am about 159 I danced around it all week, even got to 160.0.. but not this week.. its so frustating but after tomorrow's weigh in we get to start all over.. yay!! good luck tomorrow.. love ya xo

  8. Aww,Diz, sorry about the week. I hate when that happens. Some people are able to pull themselves out of a skid quickly--others are not.

    You are well aware that I belong to the group that pretty much has to skid all the way over the edge of the cliff and thud at the bottom to stop my slide. chuckle. So I understand.

    Here's hoping you have a kindly scale and a soft landing!

    Up and at em, girl.
