Friday - not feeling better but forced to go to work

I still felt like run over dog poo today but my career in insurance beckoned me to sit in misery in my cubicle for the day :)

I didn't think to take any pictures that morning of what I planned to eat in my breakfast and lunch and I don't have one of those fancy phones that takes nice pictures so there wont be any photos for the day.

Two pieces of toast with peanut butter and a banana that had been sitting on my desk since Tuesday morning.

Another banana because that is what I had available.

Snack again:
about 4 pretzel sticks that I dug out of the back of my desk drawer

Chicken noodle soup. Good ole Campbells and some oyster crackers

An apple. Feeling the need for some vitamin C so that I could maybe not fall asleep driving home

At this point I decided I had no energy to cook, knew my husband was not about to cook after a long work week, snow blowing and having to work again on the weekend. So while I picked up a movie at redbox, I ventured to the dangerous frozen food aisle. I stared into the upright freezers knowing that no matter what I chose, it was going to have nearly 20 grams of fat per serving and the serving size would be so small that I would ultimately eat two servings. After literally 10 minutes of staring into the freezer land and zoning out, I chose Digorno. Garlic bread pepperoni pizza. I didn't flip it over to look at the back because I wasn't going to change my mind.

And then I turned around, in search of light ice cream or even better, fat free frozen yogurt. I just wanted something cold and yummy. So while I scanned the shelves of healthy frozen treats, there it of my favorite ice creams put back in the wrong place. Full fat ice cream in the healthy ice cream section. Why was it there? Staring at me, the girl with pizza already in one hand? Some smart person had grabbed it, then made the healthier choice and put it away in the spot where the healthy ice cream they chose had once sat. I'm sure that they purchased some sort of fat free, 100 calorie per scoop "delight". I did what any tired, sick, ice cream craving girl would do. I bought the creamy triple berry cheesecake ice cream.

So now I'm sure you want to know just how much I ate. Surpisingly, I did not eat two servings of pizza (nevermind the half of a pizza that I would have typically consumed). I ate about one and a half servings and did look at the back of the box which told me that accounted for about 25ish grams of fat. YUCK. Why couldn't they have just made that same pizza with turkey pepperoni? It really would have tasted exactly the same and been so much healthier.

As for the ice cream, I probably had a cup and a half which is 3 servings. However, it turns out that my creamy "non-healthy" ice cream wasn't that unhealthy and thankfully this really wasn't that many calories and fat.

So in conclusion, probably the least healthy day I have had since starting this blog. Did I step on the scale this morning? NO fucking way! I intentionally forgot.

  1. Sorry you had to go to work today sick - blech! I do the same thing with frozen foods I know are awful. What the hell, I'm going to eat it no matter what, and knowing how many calories in it will just make me feel bad, so fuck it. Feel better soon.
