Fat Chick vs. Food - Week..... ah fuck it

This whole diet/exercise plan thing has come off the rails a little. Okay, a lot. Okay, almost completely. Most of my new ‘I’m skinny now!’ clothes have now gone back to their oh-so-familiar home at the top of my closet. They are out of the way enough that they are not taking up valuable moo-moo space, but still close enough that they mock me every time I open my closet door.


It was pointed out to me a few weeks ago that I was far more successful at dropping the pounds when I was blogging about the whole being fat thing on a regular basis. That is true, but it’s kind of a chicken and egg thing. I stopped blogging about it regularly because I wasn’t really doing anything positive in that area, and reporting that I just plain ol’ sucked AGAIN each week makes for some tedious reading. That, and well…I’m not super proud of the fact that I fell off the diet wagon. Again. For about the 459th consecutive time.

So, good or bad I’m going to start blogging about my big fat ass again each week. I swear I mean it this time. I pinky swear. I even best-friends-forever swear. I just spit on my palm and wiped it on my monitor and everything.

I’m starting with a new sense of resolve today after having a horribly indulgent weekend covered in football, beer, and all the good food that goes so well with football and beer. Our team won, by the way, so I now have next weekend to contend with too, as our beloved Saskatchewan Roughriders are going to the Grey Cup on Sunday (for all you Americans, the Grey Cup is Canada’s answer to the super bowl). I really hope those fuckers win, otherwise my football, beer, and all the good food that goes so well with football and beer weekend will have all been for not.

There is an upside - the whole city is freaking right out about our football team and therefore huge jerseys are practically a mandated uniform right now. That is a great deal for us fat people.

So! Instead of announcing my poundage lost like I did the last Fat Chick reporting cycle, I’m going to adopt weekly goals/challenges for myself and report back at the end of the week on my progress. Trainer Lady (she has a website now – go check her out!) is on vacation this week so I set the following goals knowing I will have to live without her -

1. Work out five times in seven days
2. No eating after super
3. No booze

Just those three goals. Short…..sweet…..simple. I can do it.

Does a milkshake count as ‘eating’ after supper?


Peggy said... booze? no. thank. you.
...but good luck to you, seriously.

Aunt Juicebox said...

Man, you are one harsh task mistress! One of the best parts of low carb is that most high proof booze is carb free. And therefore, is definitely allowed. lol

Michele said...

I was gold until you said no booze.

oh farking crapdoodles, i feel your pain. i have jeans in my closet that i haven't been able to wear in about 5 years. every time i start a diet...any diet...i fail. and i've started all of em. i'll be here rooting for you! i wasn't around when you were doing your weight loss much did you lose? did you diet and exercise? what was your method? what do you think went wrong?

Keely said...

How are you going to swing the 'no booze' thing with Grey Cup?

Otherwise, you go.

(My word verification is 'trial'. It's almost ominous.)

Jennifer said...

I with you. I don't even want to talk or think about it anymore. But I'm in the largest clothes I own with the holidays right around the corner.

Ms. Salti said...

I couldn't give up the booze, even though I don't drink that often. Knowing I couldn't have it would drive me to become an a matter of hours!

Ffi said...

does getting the kids out of bed and get them dressed while their running allover the house count as exercise?
If a milkshake counts then so does a Mars Bar!
And NO ALCOHOL - are you kidding me?

There's an award for you over at mine so you may just need one drink to celebrate.


Raven said...

I fell off the fat wagon and couldn't climb back on with my fat ass so now so I'm just sitting here in the dirt indulging in way too many holiday treats. *sigh*

Good luck with those goals!

Lana (aka trainer lady) said...

yes. a milkshake counts!

See you this week! muahahaha!!!
