T.o.M. & Starch Cravings
Pounds lost: 11 lbs
Pounds to go: 40 lbs
OK here we are with no loss after 3 days. Yup, time of the month due today. Fantastic. Chewing on my bottom lip as the urge to go to Five Guys Burgers & Fries is subliminally piped into my conscious by my dog (Chad is 3 years old today). I am sure that Sena would approve and is in fact looking upon us now from Rainbow bridge with a sparkle in her eye. Oh Sena, you never cared how much I weighed, god bless you.
Trust me, if a Five Guys opens in your area, move. The danger is incredible. Speaking of which, I came across the 20 Worst Foods in America article in Men's Health oddly enough. You know, one link leads to another link to another link and before you know it, you're on a web site you've never been to before? Anyway, the information is from the bestseller Eat This, Not That. I shouldn't be surprised really, but I was. The worst food in America was actually one of my top comfort foods. Take a look. We control everything we eat, yes absolutely. We must take responsibility in our lives and in our actions. However, isn't it a fair question to ask, why are the restaurants serving dishes like those top 20? Who can eat them and not be adversely affected physically? Would the restaurants claim that "well, you're only supposed to eat a meal of theirs once a month?" or "you're supposed to be exercising actively to balance the intake of food?" How much exercise would it take to work off 2,000+ calories from ONE meal? Let's be realistic. I'm burning about 450 calories a workout. That's MY reality. When I'm leaner, I'll burn faster or so they say. The book I mentioned here also states that no one expects restaurants to serve healthy food. Um.....maybe our expectations are part of the problem?
I was so wound up last night that I knew I was going to cave for carbs if I didn't get to the gym instead. So I went, in about 4 inches of snow and freezing rain. I was alone at first, and you should have seen me when Bon Jovi came on the radio. But about 5 people showed up at 10:30 pm. I was surprised. Dedicated folks or people just trying to avoid going for food that we shouldn't be eating.
Today I vow to drink 2 liters of water!
