Off the Wagon
As a few of you know, I live in Salina and as even fewer of you know, I had signed up for a city wide fitness deal called the Pounds Plunge. It was a 12 week stint of watching what we ate and exercising. There were weekly weigh ins at the YMCA and everyone's progress was tracked electronically.
Well the Pounds Plunge ended yesterday. I think I lost a total of 5 pounds. Yeh, I know, atleast I lost something and didn't gain any weight. And I realize that as a Tubby American (the new policitally correct term for lard butt), I must keep eating sensibly and exercising... The exercising part isn't that bad. I've always enjoyed working out. I don't mind cardio and I really like training with free weights as well as the nautilus-type weight machines. I have a membership to the Y as well as a 24 hour fitness center so I do have access to that sort of thing.
I will freely admit, however, that I enjoyed eating on Sunday. I knew I had no more weigh ins so I took my children out to eat at a breakfast buffet. I had french toast, whole grain pancakes, a sticky bun, some eggs (I am not a big egg fan but when I'm having breakfast, I need atleast a spoonful of them), a few hashbrowns, a slice of ham, quite a bit of bacon and fruit. Oh, I forgot, I have a biscuit with sausage gravy.
Don't pity the fat girl. Sometimes we're actually a happy bunch. We're not always jolly just for appearances, but many times we are jolly because damn that sticky bun certainly was delicious!!
