I had definitely planned on recapping my weekend by now, but I was feeling a bit lazypants on Sunday and just not really in the mood for blogging, and yesterday I worked for 12 hours, so…did not happen.
Anyway, nothing too exciting went down. I went out with these beauties on Friday…
And these lovely gals on Saturday…
And both nights were a LOT of fun.
But what I would really like to talk about today is how terrible my eating has been lately.
I’m not kidding. Genuinely. No exaggeration here. I have been eating like absolute garbo, and it needs to stop.
Some of this has been documented on here. Actually, I was thinking the other day that when I post about food it is usually on the healthy side, but the last few months it has just been (ridiculously delicious) crap.
Like the ginormous calzone…
(and that was after all the wedding shower food)
The Wonderland funnel cake (and not to mention the poutine)…
And oh God, the froyo…
Annnnd the nachos…
Kraft Dinner (more than once)…
And kind of a lot of this goodness:
And some other food items that I haven’t mentioned on here, like this basket of amazingness:
And over the weekend I had McDonalds TWICE. And pizza twice. And a huge plate of greasy (but amazingly delicious) Chinese food.
It is not good (but at the same time it is so, so good.)
If I don’t stop this, I am going to RAPIDLY gain weight. I probably already have. I haven’t weighed myself since before Christmas so it’s hard to say, but my workouts have been sporadic as well, and my clothes definitely feel a little more snug than usual.
This kind of eating is unlike me. Obviously I enjoy delicious and unhealthy food fairly often, and I feel that all of the above foods SHOULD be included in even the healthiest of diets. But I never eat this much crap in this short a time, unless I’m on vacation or something. In my regular, every day life, I rarely eat out and I mostly make all my meals myself (you know this if you have followed my blog for more than six months, back when I used to post about what I ate every day). I eat breakfast at home, I bring my lunch to work, and I’m home for dinner. I eat out maybe once or twice a week. And no, I don’t say no to cookies.
But now…meh. I don’t have a routine. I am staying with friends, eating kind of whatever, whenever, and I haven’t been grocery shopping in a month. All my regular habits have gone out the window.
Don’t get me wrong here, I am staying with my friend Sherrie and I LOVE it. I feel like Sherrie is my sister! And her parents are super awesome and treat me like their own daughter. It is the most positive environment ever and I will be forever grateful.
But on the eating front, I’ve completely lost my groove. I can’t say no to anything that is offered to me. And no matter how close you are with someone, and how comfortable you feel with them, making food in someone elses’ kitchen is awkward. Hence my eating out.
Plus I have been out a LOT more than usual, and just generally busy, so this does not help.
And yes, I know I am making excuses here. If I really wanted to eat healthy, I would. But for me, when I’m out of my routine, I just don’t care. I don’t. I just want to eat all the things!
It does make me feel guilty though. Pretty sure I raved on all Sunday about how terrible I’ve been eating, but then when Sherrie and my friend Lisa asked me if I wanted to go out for dinner I was all “Um, YES!” So, I am le hypocrite (though I did veto going to the all-you-can-eat Mandarin, and we went out for Mexican and my meal was semi healthy).
But as of Sunday, I will have a home base again. I move on Sunday! Into my OWN place with my OWN kitchen, and I could not be more excited. I am just pumped to have my own space (I hate that line for some reason), and to get some sort of a routine going on.
I may still be eating crappily, we shall see. And I may just have to find something else to blame it on. Fingers crossed I will be back to normal though! I am a creature of routine, truly. Though of course I love a good unplanned adventure thrown in.
Hmm…I had an ending to this and now I’ve forgotten what it was. I bet it was funny too. Oh well.
Edited because I read this over and found a million typos.
