it's getting unacceptable.

My diet is getting unacceptable. I mean, I literally ate constantly for the ENTIRE day today. I wish I were joking, but, unfortunately, I am not.  Sure, things were going well with the single bowl of cereal for breakfast, but my food intake escalated exponentially starting at approximately 11:45a.  Thus, the normal breakfast was followed by a 10-hour binge-fest including: a gouda grilled cheese sandwich on beer bread, more beer bread, 3 spoonfuls of cookie dough, a bag of pita chips, more beer bread, half of a burrito leftover from the Mexican restaurant, Hyvee Chinese take-out (of which I dropped the sweet & sour sauce all over the floor in the Hyvee produce section. Coordination and walking are not my strong points), and two freshly baked cookies. Though I did take a trip to the gym somewhere between the beer bread and the half burrito, it doesn't make up for the fact that I consumed enough calories for a family of four.

Thus, tomorrow starts my diet. And by "diet" I just mean that I'm going to eat like a normal person. I shall eat one breakfast, one lunch, and one dinner. That sounds reasonable, right? And I'm going to start eating more oranges. Because oranges obviously make you healthier. And I might possibly limit my cheese intake to one meal a day.  It turns out, eating entire blocks of cheese seemed like a good idea until you realize how gassy and irregular it makes you. Maybe that's too much information, but I just want you to know what you're getting into in case you ever decide to do the cheese-for-every-meal diet. And since I'm obviously never going to completely cut cheese out of my life, I guess I'll just have to regulate my consumption.


  1. So, I do Weight Watchers right, and I'm normally pretty good about it but yesterday was such a shitty day that Joseph came home and made a plate full of chili-cheese fries and we finished the entire plate. I promise I won't judge you :)

  2. I hear that multiple small meals are better than 3 big meals... that's why I eat constantly throughout the day, too ;-) And I, too, would rather face the consequences of cheese than to cut it out of my diet. That would be sheer torture! And, hey, at least you worked out! I definitely don't. Kudos, my friend :-)
