living up to my name

TGIF! I can't wait for a good night's sleep and a relaxing weekend!

Since I've returned from our mini-vaca last weekend, I have been in a funk, and have not been able to snap out of it. I've noticed that although I'm getting a decent amount of sleep, I'm extra tired. Also, I haven't worked out all week (fail) and have been eating like an 8 year old boy (fail again).

What? Haven't you ever seen real muscles before?
While I've been eating my usual veggies, fruits, and grains, for some reason I thought adding Little Debbie Oatmeal Cream Pies (I could eat my body weight in these things), Honey Buns, and Donut Sticks to my daily meal plan was a good idea. 

You're makin' me fat Lil' Deb!

My prayers have been answered!
Don't forget the Reeses PB M&Ms, the chocolate brownies with cream cheese frosting, and that bag of goldfish that left crumbs all over my sheets. God, I'm attractive.

Who doesn't want a bed made of burger?

Yeah I look this sexy when I eat in bed. You don't?
Yeah... when you try to put on a pair of shorts that fit just fine last week but can barely zip this week... something's not right. Either I gained 14 pounds (yikes!) or shrunk my shorts. I'm gonna go with the latter of the two. ;-)

That's not ok.
With that being said, I had a small epiphany yesterday. I was telling myself that it's okay that I ate a bunch of crap because tomorrow's a new day and I can just fix it then. Well, then I realized that I've been telling myself that all week and nothing's changed. Then I pictured myself about 20 pounds heavier and almost fell into the dumpster I was throwing trash into.

So, as of today I'm back to my normal eating habits and feel better already. There have a been quite a few times in the past year that I have thought about going Paleo, or at least mostly Paleo. With my eating-in-bed days behind me, I think it'd be a good time to attempt this. Now, I say this is a good idea... but we all know how well me and diets mesh together.

What? I don't have a problem. I'm not a closet eater. I like the way I am.
I guess it's time to put away the Cheetos and start living up to my name "Fat Girl at HEART" not "Fat Girl For Real". Whatever I decide to do, as long as I don't look and feel like a cow/pig/shamoo, I'm cool with it.

I think it looks good!
What diets/lifestyles work best for you?
Are you good about sticking to your diet or do you steer off the path a lot?


  1. I hear ya girl! After a long weekend of eating and drinking, it is hard to not stuff yourself with dessert and dive right into a bag of chips and salsa. I am a huge believer in today being a new day! So what you indulged, life is short!

  2. Thats so funny about "tomorrow's a new day and I can start it then" and then realizing you've been saying that all week - i feel the same way!! I do the same thing too. Sadly, in the spring I was running, swimming, and eating great. I had my body bikini-ready! I even did a juice fast and lost some weight! Now that it's actually summer, i'm drinking cocktails, eating late at night, having dinner dates with friends, and bam, everything I worked so hard for is gone. I could literally cry. I am back to my pre-workout, pre-juice fast weight and I dont know what to do (slight of throwing myself in the dumpster) ;)
