Day of Debauchery

OK, holy day of debauchery or what, Batman.  I actually started this post last night, but was in such a food coma I couldn't sit up straight and stay awake for more than 10 minutes last night.  Let's see...where to start?  Hmmm....may as well start this sordid tale right at the beginning...

Hubs and I have been planning this day for weeks...our last hurrah before we embark on 8 weeks of hell cleaning eating, so our thoughts were go big or go home.  Hubs has been craving breakfast food lately, so we got our butts out of bed early to be down at our fave breakfast joint The Blue Fox right when they opened.  I had the eggs and chorizo sausage, while Hubs had the Fox's Grille - a huge plate of food that we actually noticed a couple were actually sharing.  Yikes!  After we devoured our food, I went to go weigh in...maybe not the smartest idea to do that since I probably consumed about five pounds of food, but we wanted to get to the restaurant early as there's always a line up to eat there.  Before I got on that scale, I shucked off as much clothing as I possibly could and faced the music.  Not good.  I'm a good 15 pounds heavier than I was when I got married seven years ago - the couple of pounds of weight creeping up each year doesn't seem like a big deal, but cumulatively it really adds up.  At the rate I'm going, I'd be up 20 pounds by the time we hit our 10th anniversary!  Gah - not good for someone who's only 5'2''.  Le sigh.

We ran some errands and then went home.  Hubs brought out our Goody Box, and we did an admirable job of eating all the crap so it wouldn't tempt us - there's pretty much no bad food left in the house right now.  We ate all the chocolates, finished off all the half opened chip was a feeding frenzy.  But it didn't stop there.  A few hours later, we got peckish once again and decided to have dinner.  And what was dinner, you ask?  Pizza, nachos and instant noodles.  Yep, you read that right...all three!  Oh, and some cookies for dessert.  We rolled ourselves onto the couch and I couldn't even keep my eyes open...all that fat, sugar, sodium and nasty carbs were coursing through my veins.  We definitely went big.

So needless to say - this morning I felt like a pile of shite, and had nooooo problem eating healthy today.  Day 1 of the Challenge is going well - no cheating, even when confronted with burgers, hot dogs, cookies, candy and pizza at our annual Halloween block party - 55 more days to go!
