fruit follies

I promise...no more talk about clothes....or bras...or whatever....that's over!

I had a bit of a panic this morning....my well stocked, full of fruit refrigerator is no longer well stocked with fruit. ARRRGGHHH I still have some nectarines and some cantaloupe. I have been craving corn on the cob (again, is what my husband said...but it's soooo yummy...and honestly, I haven't had it in about a week and a half......and wait a minute, he has been craving hamburgers and eating them numerous times a week...sometimes even more than once a day...and he complains about corn on the cob???). I went out to buy some from our local farmer...no corn! I went to another place....no corn!!! I'm in a state of panic. One place said that they should have corn in a few hours. So on my lunch break, I'm gonna go and see if they have some. Crossing my fingers. I did pick up another watermelon and another cantaloupe to help refill the fridge!

My weight was up a bit this morning. I know I didn't drink all of my water yesterday but we also ate out. I had....ohhh do I have to admit it?????? OK ok ok, we went to Red Lobster. Now, since I don't eat seafood, pork, or beef, I had the option of two entrees. I ended up with cajun chicken alfredo. Yeah yeah yeah....beat me up....alfredo = extra pounds. Ohhh yeah, and of course I had 2 biscuits. When they asked if we wanted more, I did decline the second basket of biscuits, I know if they had been set on the table, that I would have wolfed those down also. I actually wasn't to far over my points for the day because I had eaten pretty much fruit and veggies for breakfast and lunch. OK, not pretty much...I had eaten only fruit and veggies for breakfast and lunch. (hey, that's what tickled my taste buds yesterday). So the fat, and the sodium in processed restaurant foods PLUS the water issue....and my weight is up. Hopefully it drops again. Wait, that was stupid...of course it's going to drop again. I'm working the plan and thus it WILL drop again.

Exercise.....I was getting into my car this morning and I realized that I keep saying that I'm going to kick my exercise into high gear....but in reality the only 'formal' exercise I'm getting is my two nights of zumba. That HAS to be rectified!

Only reason to go to Red Lobster is the Cheddar Cheese Biscuits.. Oh Gawd... help me, I need me a couple dozen,,,, ARGH ~!~!

Thankfully, I'm not a big biscuit person. I do love me some fish though. And you are so right, it is full of sodium. It will be gone tomorrow.

ZUMBA!! You go girl. One of my staff members goes to Zumba classes. I can really tell a difference in her shape and attitude. She is really looking much younger.

Thankfully my last trip to Red Lobster was less than stellar, so I have no reason to return anytime soon! .... except maybe those darn biscuits. ;) Yay for you declining that second basket!

Would you believe I've never been to a Red Lobster? I eat fish every chance I get. Thanks for the Zumba clothing advice. Good sports bra ... that seems like a must. Thanks for the reminder. Two Zumbas a week is not too shabby.

Maybe you're up a bit on the scale from eating a heavy meal at night.
