I didn’t eat any cupcakes this week. I went to the gym. I picked up an extra day of running. Yes, I did alright with my eating and exercise this week. The only thing that stood in my way is the Evil Cheez-It.
Someone left a box of them, albeit the reduced fat kind, in my minivan. Over the past week, I’ve eaten…oooohhhh…half of the box.
Oh, Cheez-Its, why do you have to be so good, but so, so bad?
So that’s probably one of the main reasons why I weighed in at 162 this morning. I want to blame it all on the Evil Cheez-It, but I can’t. I’m going in the wrong direction! That’s a gain of about half a pound, and after gaining 2 and a half pounds last week! I’m so disappointed in myself.
And…AND…I think I have a cold. I feel like crap this morning and we sort of have a big weekend ahead. I felt so bad when I got up, I skipped my run. I’ve run sick before, but whatever this is that I have is making me nauseous, and I can’t deal with that. I probably won’t be able to run till Monday either.
But I did run three days this week: Sunday, Monday and Wednesday. On Sunday, as I ran in one cul-de-sac an entire town had been created with sidewalk chalk. I sort of wanted to run on their squiggly roads, that led to big houses, a school with a large American flag, and Bettie’s Food Court, where I really wanted to stop for a bite to eat. Maybe that was a sign.
I need to get back on the weight-loss track. Holidays of Weight Loss will start next week. Be afraid, fat on my tummy, be very afraid.
Evil snacks just wait there to attact us. For me it would be wheat thins but fortunately nobody I know likes them. Now don't you get sick now. Take care of yourself. This is fall, great time for running, nobody should be allowed to get sick. 🙂
I love that last line! Yes, fat be afraid, I am evicting you with a vengeance. 🙂
ANY kind of snack in the car would not stand a chance against me. I get serious boredom-hunger while driving. Hope you feel better and have a great weekend!!
I just forwarded this post to Spike he loves Cheezits but has sworn them off til after the Marathon next week. Lol! I hope you feel better soon!!!
you are funny….you can deal with cheeze its later….have fun this weekend.
Ha ha ha, you're sucking me into your evil… I saw the picture of the box and the first thing I thought was mmmmmm, cheezits, AND they're fat free. But from past experience I know that fat free doesn't matter if you eat them by the box as I tend to do! Hope you're feeling better for the weekend!
Food is evil. I'm sure of it. If I'm bored or stressed I eat.I'm looking forward to the Holidays Of Weight Loss. I'm looking to get revenge and kick some butt.I've been sick the past couple days and I leave for Portland in the morning. I haven't been able to run this week either. It should be an adventure 🙂 I hope you feel better.
food in the car is tough! darn those cheez-its!!
I think we all have a snack that we just can't resist, despite our best efforts and rationale. I say enjoy 'em every now and then, the good thing about running is you can always run it off later! Have a great weekend!
darn those cheez-its. snack time is my 'bad time'
