If you are tapering, DON'T READ THIS!
Man have I ever fallen off the wagon.
I used to be so careful about what I eat. Lately I have been eating total JUNK.
Getting calories isn't really the issue here. Weight is stable and pretty good for racing. But the problem is what I'm eating.
Can a girl have too many chocolate chips?
I don't bake. I just buy chocolate chips and nuts and trick myself into thinking I will bake. Then I eat the chocolate chips. Then I eat the nuts. Then I look for the marshmallows, and the graham crackers, and the ice cream....
Forget the freezer. It doesn't work. I still know they are there, frozen and yummy and waiting for a chance to melt in my mouth.
Today I was in town. I went through the coffee drive through. Twice.
I saw the gal making my mocha use a pink and white carton. Hmm.. Second time through I asked what she was using to make it.
"Whole milk and a splash of half and half," she said with a smile.
"Could you hold the half and half- and the whipped cream?" I asked.
"Oh. That doesn't work for you?" she smiled again, eyebrows raised.
"No. Not today." I smiled back. But, I wanted to say, "No. I am NOT a PIG!" But I didn't because I don't lie. Well, I try not to.
I had to leave room for dinner (bratwurst). :) Ha.
*** Post blog edit:***
We actually had chicken soup.
Ironically, The one thing I left in town was coffee. We are out.
Tomorrow is going to be interesting.
