FIGURING OUT THE FIFTIES.... SO THIS IS WHAT IT IS ALL ABOUT.......

munch, munch, breath, munch, munch....

I blew it today!!! Totally blew it!!!

Did a fabulous back workout, came home didn't even get out of the sweaty gear just inhaled breakfast and then straight into my "day off" which generally consists of the housework...

Yeah I know, it is work, but somehow I was tricked into thinking that Dobermanns have short black fur that you will not see if any of it ever falls out...

Bloody heaps of it falls out, they should both be bald by now! Our place does not have any carpet so the dog fur collects in little eddy's and lines around the edges of the rooms and slowly the piles of fur increase and spread... Hubby seems to be totally immune to the black carpet that we end up with over our tiles every Thursday morning so housework it is every day off... might have to change the title to housework day..

Anyway... gave dogs a dinosaur bone to chew on each and locked them outside - Tank believes bones-in-queen-size-bed is what every dog deserves.. Morgan believes that bones-go-under-pillows-in-queen-size-bed... so they get locked outside cause you only ever want to go to bed once in your life and find a half chewed and bloody bone under your pillow...

Grabbed vaccy and mop, duster and Pledge, sponge and Bam and I was off!!!! It took about 2 1/2 hours and then I just stripped off and lay in the sun until lunch time.....

Ate my fabulously good and allowed Tuna and salad... drank Pepsi Max... then.... went back outside till 2pm then showered and walked to and from the library...

then..... and this is where the scary music would start if this was a movie....

think eeek eek eeekk ("Psycho" movie music) ..

walked into the house grabbed a banana from the bunch I cut from the banana palm this morning... yum.. cut another and added frozen blueberries and protein powder and water and wizzzzzzzzzzed...yum... grabbed a handful of Nutrigrain from the cupboard...YUM.. grabbed more nutrigrain.. and more... added a teaspoon of natural peanut butter to my mouth.. added more nutrigrain.. and more peanut butter.. and more nutrigrain... and the last of the peanut butter.... and because I am on a diet.. a skinny cow ice cream...

I could not stop!!!! Luckily my hubby turned up at this point and I had to stop... he yelled!!!
Well it was nutrigrain for his breakfast.... I yelled back... well it shouldn't call my name like it did!!!

stopped yelling, sighed and put on gym clothes and went and did the cardio that I was supposed to do today and then did some more... an hour of HITT on the tready... 700 cals.. after I wrote down everything I had stuffed into my mouth it worked out I should have come up about even numbers wise... if not never mind..

But my god I didn't even have cravings... it was like I was on autopilot... did I mention the diet jelly I managed to fit in between the peanut butter and nutrigrain... hey it went with the skinny cow ice cream!!!!

I had a very good dinner of chicken and asparagus which I love... sigh

ohhh well, I totally refuse to worry about this.. Shit happens and tomorrow is another day and if the numbers on the scales in the morning tell me I ate a shit load of crap yesterday ... geee wont that be a surprise!

Hey witchazel, it's a shame you couldn't control yourself with that snack and that your day off is really day of house work tasks. I'm sure your next day off will be better though.
