Shhhh… You Don't Know Me

Back off the Wagon

I got completely derailed yesterday.  I had all my food planned, with no intention of leaving my house, except to walk the dogs.

Then my brother called in tears.  A tree fell on his house, and he’s temporarily homeless.  I felt so bad for him.  I took him to lunch.  He wanted Chinese.  Then, I thought “that’s okay, I’ll just have a meatless salad for dinner, and skip the popcorn I had planned for family night”. 

Then my delivery boss called me in a flap.  Her guy didn’t come in.  Can I work 4-7:30?  It’s 3:40 right now.  Okay, sure.  I wrapped up the work I had put off to help my brother and ran out the door.  Of course, I didn’t have time to pack a dinner, so I hit Subway… and that’s where it all went to hell.  I got a six inch turkey sub, with the bread ripped out (like they show on BL) with no cheese, and only a swipe of mustard.  But I also got two cookies and a diet pop.  Ugh.  Then I went home and ate the popcorn anyways, cuz I was kinda feelin “why not”.

This morning I decided on another day of “who cares”, and in fact I may take Saturday, too.  But then I’m going to challenge myself to another ten days of “game on”.  I did great on the last one, right? 

I did jump on the scale this morning, but with all the sodium yesterday, I don’t think 158.4 was really a true number.  On monday I was 154.6 or 154.8.  I doubt I gained four pounds, considering I was on plan Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.  So I’ll indulge for a day or two, and then I’m back in the saddle on Sunday as Day 1.

I’m still going to take pics though.  I had an amazing breakfast sandwich that I had to take a pic of, which I’ll post later.  🙂



  1. It’s hard when the “schedule” gets interrupted. It throws everything off in our eating world. Really, you didn’t do badly at all. Game on next week! 😀

  2. Wow, sounds like a day with lots of bumps along the way. Your Subway sandwhich didn’t sound too bad. I know its tough not to help yourself to the cookies as they put them right next to the cash register. You’ll get back on the saddle. With each meal we have an opportunity to make a better choice. It’s just a slip up.

    • Totally. Ten days on, two days off… I’m good with that.

  3. Life happens I know. I enjoy planning out what I am going to shove in my face for the day. But you have already seen like me and Becca have that life pops out with little suprises. We try to improvise as best as we can. Sadly with the recent discovery of HFCS in the subway bread we can’t stop there anymore. Clif or Luna bars packed with protein usually hols us over until we can safely find something but. . .sigh.

    It happens. I am only now learning to have a backup plan ready since life likes to do it’s sidestep on us more often than not.
