FAT Tuesday

Oh yeah, it is Fat Tuesday. The day to eat all the stuff you are going to give up for Lent. (if you do that) In my case that would be sweets. (I know, I'm crazy!) It was Dan's idea and I have to say that at first I was a little offended! But, he knows that giving something up for Lent is something that I take very seriously and would never cheat. He tried to add a clause about I still could have cake on my b-day but I said no. (See, I stick to it 100%.) So, for the next 40 days and 40 nights I will not be indulging in treats. My friend Amber said I should lose 10 pounds...um, I know I eat a lot of sweets, but geez!

After Dan suggested giving up sweets for Lent at lunch today, he mentions that someone was selling Girl Scout cookies in his office today and he bought 5 boxes! Three of which were for me. I told him we were having cookies for dinner. After he talked me out of that I said I was going to follow him from the restaurant to his office to get my cookies. I wanted to make the most of the last day to eat sweets. I hope no other drivers were paying close attention to the crazed maniac stuffing her face full of thin mints on the road this afternoon.

Needless to say, I will NOT be weighing in tomorrow. I did work out while watching TBL tonight. Lucky for me it is one again tomorrow night. I will exercise during it tomorrow as well.

Amber (my fitness goddess friend) said maybe I should start looking at my calorie intake. Women should be eating 1200-1700 a day. So I got this book today. It has calories for a lot of foods and restaurants and even FAIR FOOD like deep fried snickers! Mmmmm. There is a food journal/exercise journal that goes with it that I am going to go get too.

It's between 1400 and 1800. It would be very bad for you if you ate less than 1400 and should never be done without a dr.'s consent. Ok, I feel better.

I am so proud of you. You are really sticking with it. I have 40 days to reprogram your brain towards food. I better get to work! What are you doing later? We'll start with shock treatments.
