I took a shower yesterday and I focused on the fact that I was alone in my house – no Alex looking in and talking to me while spraying water on the floor. It was nice.
I woke this morning and I focused on a bra and clothes and brushing my teeth. [oh what, like YOU don’t normally roll downstairs in a huge sweatshirt and yoga pants and pretend you are sexy?]
Husband wanted pancakes so we went to the International House of Carbohydrates. I would have LOVED to eat a big ole bacon omelette and some biscuits and gravy and pancakes with a bunch of syrup.
Instead I at least tried to eat better – Spinach and Mushroom Omelette – Let’s disregard the Hollandaise shall we? And the Cholesterol. Cuz Dear Diety Holy Shit. But hey look protein!
I got the Harvest Grain and Nut Pancakes thinking they were “better” for me – but oh FAIL. Except that I would have drowned the yummy buttermilk ‘cakes in syrup – so I guess in the end I came out okay.
Here’s the thing. I did the ONE thing I used to ALWAYS do when in a restaurant. I cut my servings in half. Before I even started eating, I cut that omelette and those pancakes down the middle. Bringing my calorie and fat count back down to something more reasonable.
Could I have made EVEN better choices? Well yeah, but screw that – I’m proud of the focus on the improvements of today.
And hey, At least I didn’t go for the Country-fried Steak And Eggs.
For your Saturday entertainment – Jim Gaffigan talking about cake.
Ok, dude, first, you rock. Any change is amazing, so good on you! Next, Jimm Gaffigan, oh my heart. Love, love love him. Sean turns his riffing on Hot Pockets on in the office and I wheeze until I pee. Serously.
Fuck, I misspelled seriously. Gah.
You? You are awesome.
It’s the baby steps…but Chicken Friend Steak and Eggs does sound pretty damn good!
Mmmm, cake. & Hey, protein = well done! ;D
Also, the cutting down the middle. I *almost* did that with my burrito the other day…[I only had a teensy bit more than half!] ;p
