I had a friend come and visit me from out of town over the long weekend. Okay, so he is an ex-boyfriend, but friend is a good word for him. He stayed on my couch. He is allergic to cats and the futon room made him sneeze. :( The girls and I miss him terribly.
He loves to eat. He is actually the one that introduced me to "eating out" and "good" stuff. Good lessons learned that I have enjoyed since I was 18. I LOVE TO EAT!!! I definitely enjoyed our eating adventure.
I will say OH MY GOODNESS can I eat. Where in the heck is my band? Is it only because I have had one fill? Is it because I miss food? Or is it because I am failing?
Our eating adventure started out normal. I didn't over eat.
Thursday: Breakfast: Breakfast Burritos, ate what I would normally eat. Probably a total of a third to one half of a burrito. I had two different kinds.
Lunch: I think we skipped lunch.
Dinner: Buffet, all you can eat Chinese buffet. I ate a lot. Not anywhere near "before band" normal. Definitely a lot more than I normally eat now.
Friday: Breakfast:: Buffet, all you can eat made to order omelette breakfast. Definitely overate. Still not to "before band" normal.
Lunch, skipped again, was told not to eat and wait for dinner. :(
Dinner: Buffet, all you can eat Alaskan King Crab Legs. I think we might have been at the "before band" normal eating. I felt myself get full... AND, I still had more. I think I felt a little "pop" while eating and then I continued to eat. It was so freaking good and Crab is my all time favorite. I paid a price for it once we got home. :( Next time I will eat so I am not "starving" when I finally get some food.
Saturday: Breakfast: I had a bagel & laughing cow cheese. Snacked a bit, okay, probably a lot!
Lunch: I had nachos
Dinner: I made pot roast had a normal post band serving. :) AND... one slice of garlic bread and a asiago cheese bread loaf, it was a small loaf and I shared. :(
Desert:: Coconut Cream Pie
Sunday: Breakfast:: Buffet, all you can eat omelette again. Yes, I overate, it has now become a habit again.
Lunch: none if you don't count the coconut cream pie.
Dinner, Chinese, normal post band serving.
Today: Back to basics. Smaller portions. Maybe not the greatest choices, but definitely smaller. Hamburger slider for breakfast and one for lunch with some tater tots. The electrical department is celebrating a birthday and we got the leftovers. So far I have had my 10 pretzel wheat sticks for a total of 100 calories that I split into two - five stick servings.
Am i worried about being able to eat so much. Heck yeah! Am I scared I will fail my band? ABSOLUTELY!
As of today, I am making better choices and going back to basics. Fortunately, I did lose 2 pounds from last week's challenge weigh in. I still use Thursday as my official weigh in day. I hope I have good news to share then.
Have a great day all!
