I wasn’t very successful in my “healthy eating plan” this weekend. In fact, I think I completely forgot how to eat healthy. It was almost as if I had somehow boycotted clean good food. I ate a TON of junk, I ate cake, I had chips, snacks, BREAD, oh the horror. It didn’t stop today, it was like I was on a train that wasn’t stopping. A train to junk food land, and fat bellies are welcome. Today, I ate a left over sandwich from our day on the boat yesterday, AS SOON AS I WOKE UP. with coffee. huh? I can’t even tell you how that kick started my feeding frenzy. I went from that sandwich, to a cheese and crackers plate, at 7 AM. Then I had some cake. Because, my meal could not be finished with out dessert, could it? The rest of the day was a downward spiral. The worst part was taking the kids to the pool and having to get in a suit. Don’t worry, I broke out the one-piece today. At the pool, I snacked on jolly ranchers and pretzels. When I got home, I had to see how the potato salad was since I am sure the 2 helpings I had yesterday was not nearly enough. So, I just had a vat of potato salad, on crackers. What pulled me out of this crazy feeding frenzy, you ask? Oh, it was when I sat down in front of the container of potato salad (no bowl or plate for me, I like to eat it right out of the container please) and read that in 2/3 C which is a serving, there are 15 GRAMS of FAT. I about choked. Since I had about 6 servings by that time. I had to be stopped. That did it, thank God. I really wish I had read that label about 10 minutes earlier, before I could feel the rolls of fat collecting at my waistline. Tomorrow is a new day, and for that I am grateful.
I thought you might enjoy a picture of my potato salad container, that I ate right out of…it doesn’t even look appetizing. The worst part about that? I didn’t even care….
