I didn't even realize today was Friday and therefore my day to post. I do apologize if this seems half-assed. It's been a crazy week and work is taking up all my brain power.
You all know what makes for a bad food week? 11 hr work days. When you go in at 8:00 a.m. (sometimes 7:30) and you don't leave until 7:00 p.m. You guys let me know how much you feel like cooking then. We, at Huge Financial Institution That Did Not Require A Bailout, have a merger going on. That means training the lucky ones in Minnesota that didn't get let go over the phone/computer (not that they were notified that way, that that's how we're training them), fixing computer glitches, and crying over our keyboards as we watch thousands and thousands of accounts enter our system.
So what I'm saying here is that I have been a bad girl this week. Chicken and pastry, cream cheese chicken, chicken tenders with chips (potatos thinly sliced and deep fried) and all of that drenched in ranch, and then beef & broccoli. Those were my dinners. The only thing keeping me from whipping myself with my husbands belt is that I haven't had time to eat lunch. So dinner is the only calories I've been consuming. During the day I'm diet Mt. Dew and water, water, water, so much water.
My mother-in-law made me a cake Monday in honor of my birthday (which is tomorrow) and I've done really really well at avoiding it. I haven't had a piece since Monday night in fact. Tomorrow I was going to bake a cake for myself, but then my bff told me to calm it down, that it was my birthday and that perhaps someone else had plans to make a cake for me. So... there's going to be more cake. That cow cake up there, that's a fitting cake for me this year.
I'm sorry guys. I just failed this week.
On a happier note, as it is my birthday eve, I am seriously contemplating playing hooky at 3:00 today. I think I deserve a couple of hours off in honor of myself.
My mother found a picture of me as a teenager at Daytona with one of my friends. She gave it to me yesterday. I was rocking a lime green bikini with white daisies on it. I was skinny. I was so cute. I think that's going to be my motivation picture. Clearly, I'll more than likely never be that small again, but damnit, anything is better than what I have going on now.
