Dec. 8: Spilling the Soup

Today I realized that I have a talent not everyone possesses.  It's hard to be humble about this one, so I'll just put it out there.

I can turn anything into an excuse for eating a cheeseburger.

This morning I got up and dutifully packed my lunch.  I did my hair (better hair day today) and my makeup and got dressed in something OTHER than that blue uniform shirt.  I packed a healthy lunch of vegetable soup.

At 1:00 I finally got a chance to eat my lunch.  Then I realized that my beloved vegetable soup had spilled all over my lunch bag.  Since I did not have the urge to slurp it out f the bottom of my bag, I gleefully went to the closest restaurant (McDonald's) and devoured my favorite junk meal, an Angus burger and fries.

Over the totals of the week, I'm still okay.  I'm still in diet numbers.  Today, however, my totals are:

Calories:  2221
Carbs: 222
Fat: 105
Protein: 104

Sigh.  Yeah, McDonald's isn't doing my fat rolls any favors, unless keeping the rolls rolling is considered a positive thing.  And I lied.... I did love it.

Today was a better day for back pain.  I functioned all day long on only two ibuprofen, which is nearly record setting for me.  I really miss the gym.  I was enjoying the heavy lifting so much, particularly the results.  This weekend, I'm going to research some exercise options that won't aggravate my back.

Have a great evening!


  1. Do you have sciatica or muscular pain Daisy?

  2. *, sometimes it is a sciatic pain that goes down my right leg, but generally it feels like it is right in the lower spine itself, if that makes sense. I fear it is an issue with the discs but I'm hoping for a recovery by continuing to take it easy like the doctor ordered.
