I’ll see your 125lbs and I’ll raise you 6

20 Aug

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6!!!

6…that is the number of lbs I gained over the weekend.  Seriously. 

This was a binge weekend of epic proportions.  I tried to be good, I really did. 

Friday I knew the hubs and I were going to have a few drinks.  I bought Absolut Citron and soda with a couple limes and lemons, a couple of peaches in case I got a sweet tooth and some BabyBel light cheeses in case I wanted a cheesy snack.  I thought I would be good to go, but I was wrong.  We had talked about pizza earlier in the day and neither of us could get it off our minds.  Around 10 pm with some liquid courage we threw caution to the wind and ordered it…and ate it…all but two slices. Did I mention the order of bread sticks?  And yes, it was just the two of us.  This is the image I woke up to the next morning:

Evidence of how badly I had done.  But no big deal right?  Everyone messes up occasionally.  We are all human.  A little pizza and beer isn’t going to kill you.  I cleaned up, dusted myself off and made a healthy breakfast.  I was going to get back on track – hell, I might even go workout later.  But then it hit.  The dreaded hangover which inevitably leads to what my husband and I refer to as “hangover belly” where one will consume their body weight in fast food and still be hungry because nothing will ease the hangover!  I got it, bad, and convinced the hubs to pick up chinese food and thus began round 2.  I started drinking about 2 hours after we finished chinese food and about 2 hours after that we found ourselves making a McDonald’s run.  After devouring a Big Mac, fries, a 4 piece nugget and a McFlury I kept drinking…oh and I think snacking on cheese and crackers.  I swear my stomach is a never-ending pit. 

So of course the next day, was hangover part deux which means hangover-belly part deux.  I started the day with leftover chinese food, snacked on more cheese and crackers while having afternoon cocktails (by myself), ate a ramen noodle package and then washed that down with the remaining leftover chinese food.  OUCH!  I just couldn’t stop myself. 

This morning, I am paying for it.  131.4.  Exactly 6lbs more than I weighed Friday morning before work.  I realize some of this is just food sitting in my gut considering I passed out about 45 minutes after devouring the last bit of chinese.  But I can’t use that excuse for all of it.  Some of it is actual weight gain.  Dammit, can I get myself in check please so I can reach an f’ing goal for once?!  I can’t keep doing this to myself.  Things have to change!

    :0 wow you did binge this weekend. I didn’t realize how bad till I read this. I am here for you if you need someone to slap you (figuratively) out of your next binge need. Just remember you don’t want to look like me, I want to look like you!

      It was pretty bad…and only continued last night. I don’t know how I let this happen. I’m blaming my period and the little bout of depression that comes with it. I ended up skipping the gym yesterday (I know, I know) and eating pizza, a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, and a bowl of ramen for dinner. Disgusting! I hopped on the scale this morning and saw ANOTHER 3lb increase just between yesterday and today. On top of that my hands are completely swollen from all the sodium.
      I’m getting back on track today. I did a BodyRock routine this morning and I plan to do 3-a-day’s the rest of this week – BodyRock before work, cardio during my lunch break, and my regular evening session after work. I will beat the bulge!
