Too much food drama.

I was facing the prospect of a brunch at Chow with Hubby today AND his promised birthday dinner at Fog City Diner tomorrow. Again, for a normal person this would be a big nothing. Two restaurant meals at great places; no problem.

It was driving me nuts. I'm still obsessed with taking off a few more pounds and I've been fighting a lot of starch/sugar/fat cravings lately. So part of me was going, MMMMMMM Pancakes, or even an omelet WITH home fries, but nononononono because I also had the dinner coming up and if I had TWO BIG MEALS in one weekend, I'd probably gain rather than losing. So that meant doing the quinoa/fruit/yogurt at Chow and saving the big calorie bomb for Fog City....but I just ran/walk/ran 6.32 miles in the pouring rain and got SOAKED and no I don't want cold quinoa/fruit/yogurt....I want something hot and fatty and satisfying and if I can't have it, I'll be angry and miserable.


All this crap was running through my head during my training run in the POURING RAIN:


I came home looking like a drowned water rat and told Hubby we were NOT going out for brunch. I'd cook him something here, which I did. No Chow. No Drama. I was able to have my controlled, measured, portions of my low-cal food, and I didn't have to go back out in the rain. The most splurgy part was an extra cup of fruit.

Now I just have to get through the dinner tomorrow, but I'll deal with that when it happens.

Just hate the drama...also note to self---yes the Odwalla shake is delicious, it's also a calorie bomb without enough bulk to give any long-lasting mouth or tummy fullness, so it has go on the stay away list.

I know it wasn't easy, but good decision! It was sweet of hubby to go along with it.

He IS a saint and I ended up making him an awesome mushroom scramble so he was happy. Plus now we can really splurge, both money and to some extent calories on the dinner tomorrow.

Try Spirutein powder. I make smoothies with it--it says it stirs right in but it doesn't. I'm partial to vanilla. I put in wheat germ and tons of fruit. It keeps me full for quite a while.

MEH! I only do the Odwalla's for the taste. Not really into the smoothie thing on its own merits. I do mix one tablespoon of chia and flax in with my morning nonfat, but that's basically a pure protein thing and a way to get down all the pills as opposed to my actually "enjoying" it on a smoothie level.

when I want something hot I drink tea. I've had 3 cups of Darjeeling today.

As the philosopher Lennon tell us, "Whatever gets you through the night-it's all right."
