my list of grievances

as i was sitting at my desk this morning, i started mentally running through the list of food i consumed this weekend and realized...

just in case you were feeling bad about yourself after your weekend actions, allow me to list out for you the things i put into my mouth over the course of about 2.5 days. if the following doesn't make you feel 100% better about the minor mishaps you made this weekend, you better have slept with your best friend's boyfriend or something because not much can get worse than this:

friday -

yay! look at me! i had a piece of grilled chicken with a tiny bit of couscous for dinner! gotta have SOME sort of coating to go out, amiright?! but don't wanna be bloated!

friday, after bar closing hours -

SOMEONE TAKE ME TO GET WHATABURGER IMMEDIATELY. IMMEDIATELY. regular sized burger and a SMALL fry because i'm trying to watch my figure.

saturday -

boat party, you say? that's cool. i say three bags of chips, a hot dog, a hamburger and half a heaping cup of queso... all on my own.

saturday night -

man. i don't think i consumed enough calories today. i should probably order a small pizza, right? right. and eat all of it except for about a piece and a half. perfect. no, this is great. i feel awesome about me.

sunday -

okay. redemption day. i need a semi healthy breakfast. open-faced omelet with 3 pounds of veggies on top? YES. maybe things are turning around for me.

sunday, 11:59pm -

oops. i haven't eaten since that omelet. what is this? I HAVE SHELLS AND CHEESE IN MY HOUSE??????? EXCUSE ME WHILE I MAKE IT AND EAT THE ENTIRE PACKAGE.

so, needless to say, i packed my gym bag, decided i was too tired in general today and wasn't gonna make it to the gym at any point and just forced salad and soup down my depressed throat.
