Fat Chick vs. Food - Week Fourteen

Alright week fourteen! Wow, that week went by pretty quick. In fact, all the weeks are going by pretty quick. I’ve been using the “I’ll just cheat a little now, and be REALLY good next week” line of thinking for a while now. I’ve missed two boot camp classes in a row because I decided to go for beer and nachos instead of exercising. I’m still losing weight, but I betcha it would be coming off a lot faster if I didn’t cheat so much. I know, I should give myself a break, and I do. Obviously. The plate of nachos I inhaled Friday night had a little voice with a sexy Mexican accent telling me to go for it.

‘Seniorita! What is boot aaa feuu nachos? You cheeet a leetle, no?’

It’s hard for me to walk the line between leading a regular life that is healthy with the odd treat, vs. indulging every craving, opportunity and whim that comes my way that involves food and drink. I’m stressed, I miss my co-workers, I feel like I’m always behind, and I use these excuses to cheat. Just this ONE time. This ONE time seems to be happening a lot lately. And holy SHIT, it’s almost Easter. I am seriously expected to buy a huge bag of chocolates and hide them all over my house? Are you kidding? That’s what I’m trying to STOP doing. Do you think my kids will mind if I gave them yogurt cups and grapes instead?

I did get my first 'holy shit, look at you’ this weekend, so that felt good. My life is pretty regulated and I do the same things day after day. I am in fact quite dull. Consequently, I see the same people every day which means my weight loss has gone largely unnoticed. On Saturday I went to a baby shower that was filled with people I only see a few times a year, and more than a few people seemed obviously surprised with my new boot-ay. It felt pretty good. So, off I go! The beginning of week fourteen. I am going to boot camp tonight (thanks to Keely who it going to take over some of my mom-duties in order to make it possible for me to go. She rocks), I have trainer lady Tuesday, boot camp Wednesday, the gym on Thursday, boot camp Friday and most likely squash during the weekend. And, I might throw in a few AA meetings because I’m jumping back on the wagon. No booze for me, the WHOLE week. Now, if I can only figure out a way around those fucking chocolate eggs I’ll be golden.

I only lost one pound this week (stupid nachos). I have 38.5 to go.

Easter candy is pure evil. Yummy deliciousness but evil nonetheless.

Yeah I'm lucky that X is young enough that I don't have to buy him chocolate, but unlucky that other people will buy him chocolate and obviously I can't feed it ALL to him.

Back on that wagon, girl!

Reading your workout schedule was exhausting. I'm in awe.

Don't hide the Easter candy too well. Nothing worst then to find it in August.

I don't know girl. No booze? Isn't that a bit draconian?

CDB said...

Wow, congrats on the congrats! That must have felt really great (well, like you said.)

Also, I'm doing nachos over boot camp right now, for sure. Not the beer though. (:

I know what you mean about having a hard time not cheating. I cheated over the weekend and I'm also back to drinking one soda a day when the plan was to quit cold turkey. It happens but as long as you're still keeping up on the exercise front, you'll get there. Just don't eat like shit EVERY day and you'll be fine. Oh, and Easter. What the fuck. I bought a shitload of candy for my kids who won't even eat it, guess where that's going to end up?

I knoooooow. The cadbury cream eggs are on sale already and I can taste them...Damn them.

Love the talking nachos.

In all fairness, nachos are nearly impossible to turn down. Stay away from the Easter candy though, I second its evilness factor. At least you're looking totally hawt. ;)

Talking nachos are definitely hard to resist - especially when they talk to you with that sexy mexican accent... :) Congrats on the 'holy shit look at you' comment over the weekend - bet that gives you the extra boost to do great this week, eh? ;) And congrats on the pound in spite of the nachos! You ROCK! :)
