An expansive tale

Tuesday 27 November 2012
After all the time I spent planning for what to eat, when to exercise, I really didn't do that great scheduling in time to blog. Needless to say, time got away from me and yesterday I was just too plain tired.

I took a day of annual leave on Friday so that Mr Redpene and I could attend a wedding in Redcliffe. In a new dress, with my hair done, nails and toes painted and a matching bag and shoes, I felt like I looked ok for a fat chick.

Also, the wedding was beautiful and classy. The reception was a buffet with a drinks package.

While I behaved myself at the buffet - I drank a hell of a lot of wine. No one else at my table was drinking and conversations were centered on things I wasn't really that interested in, so I kept sipping* wine. I'm going to assume that most of the people who attend weddings at this venue don't know that much about wine because when I first asked about white wine the response was "We have a dry white and a sweet white".

My response "And what types of wine are they?" - to find out the dry was a Chardonnay (bleh) and the sweet a pleasant Sav Blanc.

Surprisingly, no hangover on Saturday (most likely due to Mr Redpene insisting I consume plenty of water prior to passing out). I decided to start the day with a healthy breakfast of fruit salad topped with a scoop of yoghurt. Turned out to be a massive mistake. While the fruit was filling at the time, having practically no protein at the meal meant I was hungry again less than an hour later. This, combined with being super tired, lead to a series of very bad and unhealthy mistakes. The best part of a cheese and onion batard for lunch, pizza for dinner and pasta for dinner on Sunday.

Bad choices continued yesterday. I was continually hungry all day. 3 chocolate bars in my gob after lunch. Uugh. At least I walked home, but felt so hungry on that walk I nearly cried. WTF is wrong with me? I know I'm continuing to get larger. I'm too tired to care. I'm also heading into ToM and I know I'm going to bloat, get hormonal and all of the other thing that go along with it.

I have dinner plans made for the rest of the week - no cake today as compensation for yesterday's transgressions. Exercise planned. Time to blog planned. Let's hope this will keep me from being a complete and utter failure.
