While I was in DM with my mom and family, I ate whatever I wanted. At Mom’s that really meant fudge and maybe other goodies. Mostly fudge. I like love fudge. Keb feasted on peanut butter balls. They’re not my thing, but I get eating the heck out of what you love. Upon leaving Mom wanted to send a goodie bag home; however, I decided against it. I was (I’ll admit) pretty afraid of “weighing in”. Surprisingly, I didn’t gain weight (yet! ;-).
Yesterday, I ate a HUGE lunch at IHOP which included eggs, hash browns, stuffed french toast and one of Taed’s pancakes. Seriously — HUGE meal. Today, I ate a normal (for me) breakfast of soup with Siracha (hot Chinese pepper sauce), Fiber One Bar, and Weight Watchers Yogurt. For lunch, Taed suggested Chipolte (one of my favorites), but I decided on Pho instead. It’s a Vietnamese Noodle Place (noodle soup). The idea of noodle soup just pleased me. It seemed light and tasty.
I decided on vegetable soup (over chicken). I swear I must have groaned with delight at almost every bite. The carrots were fabulous; the cabbage divine; the broccoli and cauliflower were fantastic. After a while, I figured that I must have eaten so much sugar that vegetables were a “treat”. They were THAT good. I would have loved to have had twice the vegetables and half the noodles. That’s how strong my craving was.
Now I am happy. I may try to exercise (something I’ve not done in about 2 weeks). I may not. However, I feel good knowing that I started the New Year doing something healthy and good for my body.
Then again, I liked ringing out the Old Year treating my body like an overused bicycle needing to given ample amounts of lubricant to run right! LOL.
