Shut up I had a bad day.

Today was one of those days where you leave work and want to bathe in alcohol and greasy food. And sometimes you just have to let do it.

I used to find those days fairly often, and that's why I am a fat ass. But now that I'm on my way to being a fit ass, the days come less often.

But I work in news, and today was a day where everything that could happen did, and my show changed a million times. Cue the stressed out Kate music.

So I made it through the show and came out of the control room in need of alcohol. I found myself sitting at a table at one of my fave restaurants with a drink menu and an appetizer menu and I went for it.

Two martinis and a plate of nachos later I don't feel guilty.

My reasoning is that if I completely cut myself off from eating the foods I love, from splurging once in awhile then I'm going to start bingeing and doing so often.

So I got tipsy and ate cheese and chicken on some tortilla chips, and came home less stressed, pretty full and ready to start anew tomorrow without a nagging craving or deprived feeling.

So I can stay on track next week.


  1. Absolutely! One slip here and there does not a failure make!! Too much deprivation leads to quitting!!

    It is interesting to see what our triggers are though. I have found that when I am stressed...the habit is to EAT CRAP! If there is a lot of stress in my life, I need to find other ways of dealing it instead of with food.

    Again, once and a while is no big deal!! You are doing great and your exercise gives you quite a bit of leeway in your eating!!

    I need to get off my ass and start on the bike again! Thanks for inspiring me!

  2. I let myself "cheat" on Saturdays. I get one cheesy meal and one big dessert. It helps keep me on track the rest of the week. You shouldn't feel guilty for splurging once in a while.
