How thrown off, you ask?
I spent a solid two weeks of those two months eating NOTHING but cakes, cookies and my new fav, my boo, my everything: donuts!
And, when I say nothing but cakes etc. etc., I would easily go through a whole dozen donuts in one day.
Let’s be clear these aren’t just any ol donuts. They’re WEGMAN’S donuts insert Homer Simpson salivating, followed by evil laugh, followed by so much shame, followed by more salivating
If you’re not familiar with Wegman’s, stop reading right now and go google the closest one. If it’s within an hour, go make that trek asap.
When you get there, find the bakery section and try any one particular sweet. I guarantee it will be the most delectable sweet EVER.
I have never been big on sweets. My eating issues always revolved around actual food, food. Growing up, my mom was –and still is—the most amazing cook ever. Everything she makes tastes so freakin gooooood!
Peach Cobbler was my jamz for years. It was the only sweet that I would ask my mom to make and usually just once a year on my birthday.
My birthday dinner for years consisted of the following:
- baked ziti with turkey sausage
- macaroni and cheese
- peach cobbler
That’s right, not one veggie unless you count the tomatoes in the ziti sauce. Just straight carby deliciousness followed by a nap on the couch.
Fast forward to the beginning of 2014, and I was in a totally different space. I had a goal to lose 40 lbs by the end of the year.
When June rolled around this year, I kindly declined to have my usual birthday dinner. I explained to my mom that I just can’t eat that stuff anymore. Luckily, she was already on her own carb free moves so she had no issues chopping our yearly tradition.
Anywho, I’m back on my grind.
I’m down 20 lbs so far…hopefully I didn’t gain 10 of them back during my donut binge. deep sigh
I’m also back to reading all labels, and monitoring my portions.
This morning I counted out 21 nuts from an econo size bag of Planters nuts, I also fought the urge to make a cup of coffee and made tea instead.
While I would give anything for a nice cup of coffee and a Wegman’s donut…smh OMG they make these sour cream cake donuts….ughhhhhhhhhhh LOL. If you come across one, you will totally understand why I had no cut cards about dedicating half a blog post to these donuts.
Sorry…while I would give anything for a nice cup of coffee and a donut, I’m content with my lemon tea and 21 nuts.
My body will appreciate the dedication in the long run.
However, once I drop these last 20, I’m going to celebrate with a donut ;-)
