I will tell y’all up front right this minute, I have the taste buds of a 10 year old. I inched up from 5-year-old taste buds after I turned 30, so I guess progress? Maybe by the time I’m 50, it’ll be 15. I just have problems eating some foods… the texture, the taste, the way it feels like a squid vomited inside my mouth hole… I just can’t with some foods… and they’re usually all of the really healthy variety types of food. I can’t ever remember being like… nope, I hate the texture of Twinkie dough and that Snickers bar is hell on Earth.
This past Friday we jaunted up to visit Lindsay and BoBo, and because we’re all on this healthy living kick, we decided to pick a lunch spot that was known for its healthy food. You know the type, organic fairies water the lettuce with pots of rainbow water whilst holding hands and recycling their spittle. It’s all too much for Whitney to take in. I won’t post the name of the joint here so as to not offend anyone who may come across this blog in the future and be all like, oh, well she sucks… stupid 5-year-old taste bud chick!
So, we get there and the menu is like a walking organic garden… there is nothing on there with french before it and nothing with fries after it. They are also probably the only joint in Utah who does not carry fry sauce! THE NERVE!!!!!!!! Lindsay had the audacity to ask for a diet Coke after which the chick behind the counter about had a stroke! No, we do not have Coke, but we do have a grand variety of organic fairy spittle flavored by the roots of a rutabega. My mother ordered a cauliflower sandwich… a CAULIFLOWER SANDWICH! I ordered some sandwich with carrot aioli on it… and I’ll just tell you that carrot aioli is added to the list of foods my taste buds do not enjoy. It was a trial to eat 2 bites. You don’t get to weigh as much as I do by eating carrot aioli on the regular! Instead they dropped me off at Subway in the ghetto neighborhood where Lindsay gave money to a drug dealer on accident, and I ordered the Subway kind of “healthy” food instead.
My week 2 update started out stellarly. I did well during the actual week when I had a menu all planned out, but then the weekend came and I had no menu and I did not do as well, so my goal for week 3… make a weekend menu or at least make a breakfast and lunch menu and then see how many calories remain for my dinners, Saturdays are usually go out to eat nights and Sundays are usually family dinner nights. I always go back to that saying, “If you fail to plan, you plan to fail!” I really truly know that is the truth for me.
Moving on to week 3… I hope y’all had some successes in week 2 and if not are ready to start week 3 with a new resolve. Please share what was good and not so good about your weeks! We’d love to hear them!
Hello Again Whit’s readers! How are you guys enjoying your new year? What are your successes? What are you looking forward to? What goals have you been working on and what difference have you noticed in your life by sticking to them?
I weighed in last Monday and in 1 week of my dieting I lost 4 pounds. I was TOTALLY SURPRISED! That has never happened to me! EVER! But I can’t say I didn’t work for it. I was super diligent and determined to make this weight one off! I realize not to expect that every week. The second week which was last week I was on point with me eating again! This makes the most difference. I still have 1 cheat meal a week and usually save it for the weekend when it seems we eat out more.
I am feeling full each day, I don’t feel hungry which is why I choose to eat higher protein. One thing Whit and I have both talked about is being prepared. Each week I plan the meals I will be having and I do not leave it to chance, if I do I will end up eating whatever is convenient and that is not the best choice! Having my daily spiritual time MAKES ALL the difference in the world. I am grateful for you guys being a source of accountability! Thank you for going on this journey with us and let us know where you guys are at!
HAVE A GREAT WEEK!
Lindsay would also like to share this video of her weighing in one week last year and cussing out her scale… 😛
