The One Where I Cheat, then Cheat Again.

I cheated.

I weighed myself this morning.

I’ve gained three pounds.


I am not surprised. I’ve been having a tough time getting dressed for work, and my sweats don’t even feel comfortable anymore. So I weighed myself to confirm what I already knew – all of my “little” wine and candy indiscretions have been adding up.

Oh, and in case you are confused – I don’t share all of the food that goes in my face on my blog. I’m not that disciplined, and I’d be too embarrassed to put out in public the mass quantities of candy I can eat.

Whelp, I guess my little sugar bingeing is done-zo for a while. Time to climb back on the horse. It was a fun detour, but it’s time to head back to Reality and Clean Eats.

I was super exhausted last night (another sign I’ve been eating like crap) but managed to put together a simple dinner of chicken and peas while Hulk made a Costco run.


Then Hulk brought back the spoils. He needed to borrow one of the bellhop carts to get it upstairs. Everything but the booze:

I don’t even know what half of it is. All I know is that our fridge is stocked again! Wheee!


Still, I packed a pretty lame breakfast/lunch. Turns out Costco quantities of food is only good if you cook & prep it ahead of time. Six pounds of raw hamburger does nothing for me at 7:30 in the morning.


Mixed baby greens with evoo & a can of tuna, 2 hb eggs, 2 carrots, AB, and an apple.

I did get a quick run in this morning. Despite my fears from the article I read yesterday, I was really itching for a run. I did some speedwork and intervals when I felt like it, and walked for a couple of the scenic stretches. It was “very nice”.

And now it’s time to start the day. Or afternoon. Depends on what time this post is scheduled to go up.


Have a happy almost-Friday!

  1. Ummm, confession. I got on the scale today too. But I did it stupidly. Like in the middle of the day, and dressed in workout gear, after drinking several cups of water post workout. So of course it’s up from my “first thing in the morning” weight. Way to play head games with yourself Tiff. Ugh, whatever.
    But seriously, lay off the candy! 🙂 And yay for Costco. Nice job on the workout. I haven’t been running lately myself. Given my goals I decided to concentrate on HIIT and strength with some yoga and pilates to round things out. I may add in a walk or two next week. The morning looks beautiful!

    • Probably good that you weighed in the middle of the day, so that data point is totally out of the norm and doesn’t count.

      Thanks for the kick-in-the-butt. Candy = lame.

      I need to do more HIIT and yoga. Those are things I can only seem to do if I have someone telling me to do them, like an instructor. Doesn’t work out so well on my own, I’m not disciplined enough 🙂

  2. Maybe you end up binging on sugar because your meals are tiny and unbalanced, so you aren’t satisfied?
    Peas and plain chicken do not a meal make!

  3. April is my “eat whatever I want month” for my 9 for 9 challenge…. let’s just say I will not step on a scale because I know I wouldn’t like it. I don’t care though, it is my goal to ignore all diet related ideas this month.

  4. Yeah, I cheated a bit this week too. I’m thinking it’ll show up for sure on my Saturday weigh in. Sniffle.

    Good luck being good again!
