UPDATE: at 2:40pm, I have not caved to be delivered by temptation or the pizza man. Had salad for lunch. Only seven more hours before bedtime.
….today I’d like to reward myself for being so diligent dieting since August 3rd.
I have not cheated once. No little slice of pie. No bread. No butter. No drinks. No wine. Not even much whine. And the scale has smiled back at my success.
Yesterday I made a batch of disgustingly healthy soup for sustenance- organic chicken broth with sliced baby bella mushrooms, celery, and carrots shreds and after my dinner portion, I started thinking about how I’d love a steak. A thick juicy steak with a baked potato. Or a hearty breakfast, like pancakes, or eggs with toast and home fries.
I’d like to eat ONE something today that is a reward but what? I won’t go whole hog (no pun intended) but here are my top three ideas, she said while drooling on the keyboard:
- Pancakes and bacon. I don’t have any bacon at home so if I do this, I’d have to run to the local diner. Order a short stack and bacon, then get out of there, quickly. Run home.
2. A sandwich. A big sandwich, with bread and mayo and lettuce. Like a juicy BLT.
3. A burger and fries, from Red Rooster in Brewster. Get this, in searching for “Red Rooster Hamburger”, guess what? I found my OWN blog photo from a years-ago trip to Brewster:
I’m not craving pie or cake or donuts – not even spaghetti. Not McDonald’s. Not Boston Market chicken with mashed potatoes. Not ice cream. Not chips and dip. Not cookies.
The craving is for something specific, almost like the old days of being pregnant, having oddball cravings. I am pretty sure I am not pregnant so this must be my body fighting back after so much healthy stuff in it.
I know I know. I can hear you all now: Don’t reward yourself for good behavior with food. I know I know.
But geez, I gotta have it. Just gotta.
I’m hoping whatever it is I do choose, I feel guilty as hell afterwards. I’ll let you know. And if I don’t feel badly, I’ll let you know that too.
I hear-tell the Emmy Awards are on today and the host, Steven Colbert, plans to make the entire theme TrumpHate jokes. Is there any wonder why we Deplorables don’t watch TV anymore? I wouldn’t watch tonight’s Emmy’s if someone told me they’d give me a million dollars to do so. Not gonna happen.
I might watch some football today although the Giants don’t play until tomorrow night. The Philadelphia Iggles are playing the Chiefs at 1pm and that might be fun. I don’t see the Patriots on the schedule today so maybe they have a bye.
Nothing else earth-shattering to report. so, Happy Muggy Foggy Humid Sunday.
