FINALLY the forums are working for me!
I couldn't log in all weekend to the forums
I could enter food, but whenever I tried to log onto the forums, I got logged out. I'd re-log in, try to enter the forums, and get logged out again. Over and over and over. Sorry everyone
I'm logging in now from work. I'm going to check my cookie settings at home, maybe there's something wonky?
Accountability: I had a hell of an unplanned cheat day on Sunday. Long story short: Went to play disc golf with my boyfriend. We had a great time, though I was not feeling well (still am not feeling well). When we got back to the house at about 3:00 or so, he called a couple of buddies from work just to chat and brag about his score (BF is pretty good at disc golf. I suck!). It ended up that I got about half a dozen mechanics over to our apartment to spend the evening -- on Mother's Day! I kept asking them if they weren't supposed to be taking out their mothers and wives
One of the mechanics told me that their wives told them to "get out of the house!" lol - I assume there were shopping trips or spa days involved, but I don't really know, and they wouldn't give me a straight answer - or everyone gave me a different answer. I love those guys, though, and it was nice to have a total boys' night at the house. I have an inner tomboy that got to come out and play.
I had not gone grocery shopping and was not prepared to cook for so many people, though, so we ended up ordering out for pizza and subs.
Three light beers, four slices of pizza, and about half a dozen cheesy breadsticks later, I stand here chagrined. Carb binge and overload of epic proportions. I logged everything and the numbers are not pretty. I don't even want to know what the scale says
Since it's my favorite TOTM and there's going to be associated weight wonkiness on top of the damage from yesterday, I'm just not going to step on the scale again until next Monday, and try to suss out the damage this week. I'm still feeling pretty badly health-wise (I have laryngitis and a bad cough, as well as a general BLAH feeling. It may be a bout of mild allergy-related illness), and it's going to be a challenge every day not to go for comfort foods. If I can eat clean this week, I consider that a success. Thus, my goals are changing just a little bit to reflect my illness and my "eating clean" to try and work out the bad and get back on track. I need a back-to-basics week.
Mike: Just wanted to tell you, from last weekend, that you have a lovely daughter, and she does look like you! Thanks for posting the graduation pic!
