Yes, I am please to announce today I discovered the pill that will fix it all… weight problems, men problems (or women), kids, ex problems, work problems, etc. You name it and it will fix it! I bet ya’ll would be willing to pay a pretty penny for a few of these babies, right?! Too bad I am not sharing!
This morning I got on the scale at 5:30 a.m. to weigh in before I did my C25K workout. I was down one pound and while that is down and progress I was a bit frustrated because on last Thursday I was down 3 pounds. I was pretty good over the weekend, with the exception of Friday’s lunch which was naughty. Saturday night my parents insisted on taking my boys and me to their favorite Chinese restaurant… I was scared, but determined to make a good choice. First I asked if they had brown rice and the waitress told me the ham fried rice was kind of brown. Um, I am not trying to eat by color smarty! I ordered a chicken salad… FAIL! Yuck! Then I order one of the only non fried things and it contained vegetables, cashew chicken. I was pretty proud of myself for making a good choice and eat left over for lunch Sunday and Monday. My boss made some comment about Chinese food being so bad so I go to www.calorieking.com to check out the figures on cashew chicken. I was flabbergasted, dumbfounded and aw struck! You could have hit me upside the head with a Tonka truck and had less impact. According to www.calorieking.com a “dish” of cashew chicken has 810 calories and 30 grams of fat! Ww…What?! I really thought I was being somewhat good… so much for thinking!
Then I have a headache and decide to open one can of Dr. Pepper. I take a couple sips and it tasted like crap! I can’t be good when I try and when I decided to cheat I can’t do that either. I am running kids around, the weather sucks, but enjoying my son’s kickball game while my ex-husband can’t set his phone down because he wants to make sure I see him texting and for all I know he is texting his mommy. Then he comes and takes my BBQ! My boss calls during the kickball game and has me go do work stuff, my car sounds like it is going to die and my tires are bald! Did I mention I was also wearing an unflattering, make me look fatter than I am shirt and not my favorite jeans?
So you get it I was having a bad day. I call Shannon and she is kind of in the same boat. Well my kids were going to their dad’s house so I am going to Shannon’s for some enlightened guidance and that is when I discovered the magic pill! It came to me like a gift from the heavens above… Screwitol! It is the pill that can fix almost anything.
I have decided sometimes it is best to eat ice cream, take-out and enjoy a movie with a friend. No, I will not be doing this daily, or weekly, but I was up exercising at 5:30 a.m. and that is HUGE for me. So when all else fails take a Screwitol and pick it all back up in the morning.
These are the wise word of Fab Fattie Angie and you have just received them… use them wisely as an overdose of Screwitol can really mess up your goals!
Angie the groovy chick!
