Sabotage!

So I spent the afternoon with my boys at the lake yesterday. Fun times right? Hells yes it was! However I was starving by the time we left (at 2pm) and we'd stopped to get gas at the Shell (which happened to be right next to a Tim Hortons) and I started drooling. Well damn isn't it tradition to get a couple doughnuts to haul to the lake? I mean yes I'd just woven my way through the craptastic Zellers by our place and gotten some Crispy Minis, trail mix, and reduced fat pringles; juice, water, etc. I needed doughnuts. I could taste the sugary, fatty deliciousness. But of course we can't get just one. Oh no no no. A 20 pack of timbits and half a dozen full size doughnuts later...

dun dun duuuuun....

Over the course of yesterday I maybe at one, well no two, actual meals. I made eggs for breakfast. Just one fried egg sammich for me, with light cheese and an unbuttered english muffin. Throughout the afternoon I stuff 1 1/2 full size doughnuts, probably 5 or 6 timbits (maybe more, fuck knows I wasn't counting), a couple handfulls of trailmix, maybe 8-10 pringles, three cheese nips (they didn't taste so hot after the doughnuts), three small bottles of apple juice, and lord knows what else. These of course are all guesstimations. I came home and was hungry, no shit, because I hadn't had a real meal by 8 pm. So I dumped 3/4 C cottage cheese (always 1%), 1/2C peaches (always in water), and made myself a whole wheat english muffin. Yum!

I've been doing the daily scale dance again. Bad Amber, I know. It had me up 1.2 lbs this morning. Oops. Well, I must pay for my doughnut sins. Do I regret it? A little, but not really. I haven't had a doughnut in months and this was the first time I really binged like that. Seriously. That was a holy shit kind of binge. You'd figure this would at least get me moving. But no. I'm a tool this week. A lazy tool. I have worked out only once. I'm stupid I know. If I'd actually stuck with it all week I probably could have not felt regret at all for pounding back those doughnuts but oh well.

I had a great afternoon at the lake yesterday, got myself a nice little sunburn, and had oodles of fun playing football and badmitton in the sand and just enjoying the water. So in the end...totally worth it.

You deserved some fun (and some doughnuts) after your hellish week. Sometimes we have to give ourselves a little break.

Now you're back on it, that's all that counts. :)

Everybody need days like that once in awhile. Sounds like you had a great time!

No one can ever just have one doughnut... why is that? damn them. Just forget about it and move on!

Afternoons of badminton and mooching by the lake are always fun :D

I think the doughnuts are minor as far as the week went for you. Ugghhh I know if it was me I would have done WAY worse!

It is behind you now and tomorrow is a new day right?

We don't have a Tim Hortons in Texas. I'm kinda of glad because I was drooling on the keyboard after I read about your doughnut buffet. I have the same reaction to pizza. It's alright. We all have days like that.
