I have issues. All at once now, "DUH!" I know if you are a regular on my blog you already know this about me. But for those of you who are new to my blog, Welcome and, I am not normal.
The issues I would be referring to tonight would have to do with my eating habits. I know we discuss them a lot and we already know I have issues in that area of my life but it occurred to me Tuesday night that my issues are worse than I previously admitted to.
You see, Tuesday nights I watch The Biggest Loser. I don't usually watch much t.v. but I do watch that show. It occurred to me while watching a couple weeks ago that I have NEVER watched an episode of The Biggest Loser without eating. I don't mean snacking on an apple or popcorn or eating dinner. I mean I have NEVER watched an episode without totally pigging out on junk food. Biggest Loser and cookie dough, Biggest Loser and caramel apple, sans apple, Biggest Loser and the entire pan of cupcake pebble crispy treats, Biggest Loser and the entire box of chocolate donuts....
It's like being so interested in watching the train wreck being put back on the tracks that I fail to see the train wreck occurring in my own living room. Deep, I know.
Last Tuesday, I was on a cleansing diet. I started watching TBL (I just realized The Biggest Loser initials are TBL...as in the abbreviation for tablespoon in a recipe hmm, sorry random I know, or not, I guess considering my mind has one track and it's food!) Anyway, I started watching and the urge to whip up some white cake batter was so strong I had to turn off the t.v. and go to bed. I can't do it. I cannot watch ten minutes of that show with out junk food. It is impossible.
On a different but related topic, if you are ever on a diet, DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT light a sugar cookie candle. Trust me, it is a bad idea! Bad! Very, very bad!
For your information, for all of you who doubt my ability to stick to any kind of a diet, I DID IT! I did a week long cleanse and I did not cheat. Not even once! Not even when the boys had my favorite EVER maple bars (not that maple bars are my favorite and not that they aren't, but that these maple bars from this specific place are THE BEST EVER!), not when JC (he's a cheater) and the boys had pizza for dinner, not even when the boys had milkshakes, not even when I was offered a diet Pepsi...ON CRUSHED ICE, not when Dub had a cheeseburger from Checkers...well okay, I took one bite, BUT, I just chewed it up and tasted it real good and then spit it out, so that doesn't really count, sorry for the TMI. Now, technically, hour wise, I have been on this cleanse for 7 days, 168 hours...even though day wise the diet doesn't end until tomorrow, but hour wise I did 7 days. So I had me a diet Pepsi on crushed ice...thank you Country Boy Drive In! and now I am about to have a scoop of coconut milk ice cream in a waffle cone with caramel (I have the candle to blame for that craving), then I am going to mix up some cupcake pebble crispy treats and then I am going to run to get some maple bars for breakfast....and then after I watch the episode of TBL that I turned off on Tuesday I should probably do anther week on the diet because I am sure everything I am about to partake of is going to completely undo whatever the last 168 hours did for me.
Now if you will excuse me, my ice cream is melting!
