|The award for best effort at not gorging on snack food goes to...|
Yesterday was supposed to be a jam-packed day for me TV/Internet-wise. I love NASCAR. There I said it. Shut up. So the Daytona 500 was scheduled for yesterday, but due to rain, no dice. Then there was of course, The Oscars which always manages to make me feel like a beached whale, jealously admiring the fit figures of the celebs. This year was no exception. Also, the Bloggies winners were announced and because I'm with Band Back Together, I was nervously awaiting to see if we won any of our three nominated categories. We did not. Next year, Bandmates!
Between these three events that I adore no matter how much people put them down, I expected to sit on the couch and eat... and eat... and eat. What?? Look I realize I have been not doing the best with this whole weight loss thing, but sometimes there are certain events that just go with food. Let's take them one at a time shall we?

2. The Bloggies: This is my first year as a blogger (I started in December 2011) and my personal blog wasn't a final nominee for any Bloggies (dammit!) but I'm with The Band and so I was nominated as a member of Band Back Together in three categories. Woohoo! I had forgotten that the winners were being announced yesterday, so I dodged the nervous eating bullet by not buying anything to nosh on while anxiously awaiting our fate. Sort of...

3. The Oscars: If ever a TV program could bring up every single body issue I have or have ever had, it is The Academy Awards. Hey gorgeous celebrities? Yeah you look fabulous. Meanwhile, I'm on the couch in my coffee stained nightgown and mismatched teddy bear pajama pants eating half a pint of Starbuck's coffee ice cream with Hershey's syrup. Ugh. Okay so it's not their fault that I'm in this pitiful position, but if I don't blame them and their perfectly toned bodies, I would have to blame myself and I'm not gonna do that. Maybe I will tomorrow, but not today.
|Hello, old friend.|
So as you can see, I could have done worse. I could have done a lot better and not eaten the delectable frozen treat, but plain coffee ice cream and chocolate syrup isn't that bad. I promise you this darlings, this week I'll not have the frosty treat... because I already ate it all.
Despite that slip up, I have lost a pound so yay me! We're all winners for various reasons today, but the best reason is because we haven't stopped trying. Congratulations to everyone (including me) for not giving up!
