The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

Real original title, huh?

The good: I was in the break room eating my lunch a few days ago when one of the sales ladies came in and said, "You look like you've lost more weight lately. Like a lot." "No," I answered, "Not an ounce in quite some time." She said, "Well, it sure looks like it. Maybe that outfit is just really flattering." I was wearing a shirt I got at the BOOBs clothing exchange - I don't know who donated the black, 3/4 sleeve Dana Buchman top with the tags still attached, but I want to wear it every day.

The bad: I had a yucky cold and haven't worked out in a week. And after I was so excited about it too. Ugh. I still have a cough but I am feeling much better now. I'm going to Disney this weekend but I plan to be out on that running trail on Monday!

The ugly: I had my first (tiny) PB this morning. I made it 20 months of being banded without, but that streak is broken. It's my own fault too - that's the really stupid thing. I had a customer installation first thing this morning and accidentally walked out the door without my breakfast. I was starving by the time I was done, and I pulled into Sonic and ordered a breakfast burrito, no meat. I thought that would be eggs, cheese, and jalapenos only. I peeled back the tortilla and realized that there were tater tots in there too. Now I KNOW I can't eat the tots. I know this. But I have been very loose lately and took a bite anyway, thinking it would be ok. And then another. And then kablammo...jalapeno flavored slime. It was gross. It hurt. I spit it out and then felt ok...mostly. I stuck with liquids for most of the day and then had the inside of a tuna sandwich for dinner. I'm fine now, but I need to write 100 times...

I will not attempt to eat a tater tot, ever.

Tater tots...you would think that since they are diced potatoes and they sort of break apart, they would be ok. So wrong and I too, learned the hard way. I used to love tots. Haven't had one in over a year. Now I am craving them...thanks, Steph!! LOL :)
