Hey, peeps! How are your 7 Days of Sanity going?
The scale stood firmly at 351 Monday morning (and also this morning), but that is a very good thing and I’ll tell you why in just a minute. Prepare yourselves for something dreadful and horrible…something unheard of in the Hot Mess world. Sunday, the Hot Mess Hubby took me to the movies…and I had movie theater popcorn! GASP!!!
I knew we were going to the movies, so I had a light breakfast. The movie started at 10:45 am. I planned to eat popcorn. It’s just one of the most inhumane things in the world to expect me to walk into a movie theater and not have popcorn. I should tell you that, although I’m a movie buff, I married a guy who thinks it is absolute torture to sit still in a dark theatre for an hour and a half…so I go to the movies about once a year. In fact, the last movie he took me to see was Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part II…and only because I threatened to kill him if he didn’t. So if eat movie theater popcorn once a year…big deal, really. And yes…it had butter on it. Perfectly popped, partially hydrogenated evil in a box. And I ate it. And it was gooood.
We saw “The Hunger Games”, which I originally thought was a tell-all documentary about the diet industry. Katniss Everdeen and the wild game diet. Peeta, aka the Boy with the Bread…really, c’mon. A cute guy with carbs? How can I resist that??
Okay, I’m kidding…I knew what it was about. I’ve read all 3 books.
But back to my popcorn…
Like I said, I had a light breakfast with a chaser of movie theater popcorn at 10:45 am…and I didn’t even begin to feel hungry until 5 pm that night. I made a grilled turkey burger and some baked, seasoned fries and that was it. The next morning I got up and got on the scale…351. Good boy, Mr. Scale…good boy!
I was a little afraid that my partially hydrogenated tryst was going to make the scale flinch a little bit, but it didn’t. I win!! I worked out on the treadmill for 30 minutes on Sunday and 31 minutes on Monday. Tonight will be 32 minutes. Tomorrow will be 33. I’m going to work my way up to 45 minutes consistently this month. Next month, I’ll shoot for 60 minutes. Time to get serious about this exercise thing.
How’s everyone doing? Time to check in!!
