Day 43:paying the price

Well, it is 3am and I am blogging, not because I want to but because I am on the couch right now "recovering".

Last night, I went out with a few friends for a fancy dinner at Fiamma Trattoria & Bar in the MGM Grand for Restaurant Week here in Vegas. Which means that a bunch of restaurants are offering a set menu and the proceeds benefit Three Square Food bank! It is really an awesome program because we have the chance to sample some of the best restaurants in Vegas- for a great price AND you get to help out a charity! Here is the link: http://www.threesquare.org/events/event-calendar/restaurant-week/ I hear they actually run the program in a bunch of cities.

Anyway, we had a few choices on the set menu (http://www.threesquare.org/fiamma-trattoria-bar/) and OF COURSE I picked the heaviest most unhealthy ones: the crispy calamari, ravioli & panna cotta. Let me tell you- It was DEEEELISCIOUS my friend and paired with a few glasses of wine .... a great evening.

Well, that is until 3 am.

If you are dieting maybe you can relate when I say I now have a "delicate" tummy. It's not use to heavy creams, alcohal, fried foods, oil- you know the ingredients that make food actually taste good. I ate/drank it all! Now the dieting gods are ANGRY. They told me so when they woke up 30 minute ago with a rumbling tumbling in my bowels. Ugh so angry with me- and I am paying the price as I run to the restroom for the 4th time while I write this. The Vegetarian Godess is laughing at me right now the way I scoffed at someone last night who preached her ways. When will I learn????? Probably never.

Until then I gotta run to the bathroom...

Day 44: On the Go, GO, Go

I am so busy this week and it's reeking havoc on my diet. I don't think I can make it to the gym until at least Sat. because I've got something going on every night this week. Yesterday I went to weight watchers and weighed in at 147. I can't really complain about it since at least I am staying between 145-147, just bouncing back and forth between those two numbers.

Tomorrow I am going out for dinner with friends, friday a concert (with open bar) and then it's Labor day weekend! Sheeesh.... if you've read this blog before you know I have serious trouble with unrestricted eating. I just wanted to be able to track this week. And that is so hard for me when I am out and about. So I guess my only plan of action is to try to eat light for the early meals so I can save as many points as possible for the evening.

I tell ya, today I really contemplated going back to the doctor and trying the other medication she suggested. But I reeeeeally want to lose this last 15 by myself. I am going to give it a couple more weeks and see if I can get my shit straight.

talk to you tomorrow.
