Day 15: Home, Hot and Tired


Ok, first of all, its nearly 1am. For anyone considering writing a blog, one of the problems is keeping up. Readers (that's you, friends) really get accustomed to a schedule and sometimes it gets to be much.

This is only a problem if people actually ENJOY the blog.

That being said, thank you for enjoying, thanking you for looking forward, thank you, Photog for shouting me out on FB. Yeah. You.

We left Florida on Saturday morning, we stopped for the night and ended up here Sunday evening. I bet you wish you know where "here" was...I know that you all know. Pardon me for wanting a little mystery.

I need to go through what I ate and this may be tricky. Friday evening we had a BBQ and I ate way to much ish.

Saturday, I woke up at the crack with a stronger resolve. This is what I ate: grits with cheese, a fish fillet (no bread), onion rings, wheat thins, tortilla chips, salsa, two beers and a glass of scotch. Of course I drank coffee. For now on, unless I say otherwise, I had coffee.

Sunday, we went to brunch. I had an AMAZING grilled tuna club and yuca fries. You must know that my tuna was medium rare, the sandwich was lovingly bedazzled with a curry slaw, arugula and tomato. Wowzer. If you are ever in DC, please visit Zest. You know what? I could be wrong about the name of the place-this was yesterday. What I am 100% spot on is you must try this sandwich or a variation of it. I will double check the restaurant and get back to you. I don't think I ate anything else on the road. When we got home I was mostly starved and I had shrimp chow fun.

There is no place in the United States that has better Chinese take-out than my city. Awwwww...its good to be home.

Today I was so fortunate to have a breakfast buffet at work. The secret to a breakfast buffet is simple, eat for both breakfast and lunch. Why? Hello!! This is meal where you are encouraged to eat as much as you want. In this case, the meal was free. A free buffet takes some of the pressure off because you didn't pay for it. Therefore the "shoot, I'd better get my money's worth" feeling is not there. In my case, I just wanted to get the most of the meal. I had a little corn muffin, a little roll, a teeny bit of eggs (my least fav on any buffet), a half slice of french toast and two strips of turkey bacon. It is worth my time to tell you that the roll and corn muffin were literally the size of a silver dollar and I had them after breakfast. I just managed to wander back to the buffet on my way to the bathroom. Heh!

This evening when I got in I had to toss together dinner on basically no groceries. Remember how I told you that I was trying to get rid of all the food in the house? Yeah...accomplished. Now I don't feel as accomplished as hungry. Today I made salmon patties (frozen from Costco's), couscous and beans.

It is what it is.

I have to go shopping soon because at this rate we will be eating grains and wishes. Soon I can put my children on the toothpick and mint diet.

Around 10pm, I had a bag of pirate's booty and at nearly 11pm I had a cheese stick. I could have done without the cheese. The thing is, I had just walked into the house and plopped down in front of the tv. Couch potatoing is where I do the bulk of my overeating.

Alright already, I'm tired. I can tell you that tomorrow there will be another breakfast buffet. I am going to make myself a smoothie for lunch and for dinner I will have the remainder of the couscous and beans.

Jeez..I won't be visiting my other blog tonight, I can barely keep my eyes open. Sidebar: lack of sleep is not good for weight loss. Whoa..I just read over what I wrote--I did not forget that I was going to weigh in once I got home. I honestly don't think its a good idea. I will weigh in tomorrow and let you know.

I love me for losing, I'm on my way!
