Today as I slid on my jeans for work… I was actually planning on probably having to slide them back off again because they were too tight. NOPE! If anything, they were looser! As planned, while in Mexico, I ate and drank everything I wanted to. Fortunately, that is a LOT of great fresh Mexican food! I never really eat junk food in Mexico because it’s all just weird stuff. Even if I am feeling snacky, and go into a corner store, I almost always come out empty handed because 1. I don’t know what anything is and 2. None of it looks appetizing to me.
My downfall was traveling home. I am VERY CAREFUL about what I eat around plane trips for fear of a repeat of the puking incident, but once we got back in Boston …and ended up stranded there for 2 days (thank you American Airlines for losing the one bag with our car keys in it). I must admit, all bets were off. A combo of emotions and “let’s eat all the bad stuff before getting back on it Monday, ” led to a weekend of debauchery.
- There was a mini Ben and Jerry’s cookie dough cup
- There was chinese take-out
- There was Carrabas bread and lobster ravioli (with the insides squished out because it was nasty)
My only saving grace was that it was all vending machine food, so all small bags 😉
Back to it today. Fought a lot of urges to make cupcakes and eat bad food because I have a nasty cold and feel like shit. But I didn’t. I made delicious salad (I actually missed salad and craved it in Mexico!), and Lonnie made a wonderful Pezole soup that was JUST what the doctor ordered for my cold.
I did have an egg Mcmuffin for breakfast because I overslept and then had to rush off to work. But there are certainly worse things, and I didn’t let it make me think the whole day was ruined.
