Eating doesn't help.

So regardless of if I burn calories or not, I seem to be more concerned about consuming them.  Today I had lunch with a doctor.  We ended up at "The Counter" which is a burger joint where you create your own burger.  Let's just look at the damage- shall we?  After all is said and done- I've consumed about 2300 calories today.  AWESOME.

So I tried to go to yoga first and then figured I would go on a long run to help with the horrific surplus of calories.  When I got to the yoga studio, I had no time to spare (of course, thank you traffic).  The lot attendant and I got into an argument because he said that everyone can park there except anyone going to yoga, but if I wanted to risk getting my car towed, I was allowed.  Of course, I don't want to get my car towed, and since a lot of people have chips on their shoulders here, I did not trust that he wouldn't call on my car specifically to prove his point.  The whole thing was ridiculous and of course, I missed my class.  So then I decided to go to the gym since it was after dark and I am not familiar enough with the area to feel safe running alone after dark.  So my gym that I pay for every month (that I thought I was a member of), explained to me tonight in front of hoards of people that were entering the gym as well, that apparently now they have these "ultra" gyms that I have to pay more to be apart of.  If I want to go to a regular gym that's not ultra, I have to go somewhere else.  He then told me where one of the ghetto gyms that I belong to was located.  Now, I hardly ever go to the gym anymore.  I spend the majority of my time running and doing yoga.  But I was determined so I drove over to where he told me to go.  I drove around for another hour, checking all of the surrounding streets and trying to find my gym.  Apparently- even though the name of my gym is 24 hour fitness- it is not a 24 hour gym.  This one closes at 5 on the weekends.  I don't even get out of work until after 5, thanks gym, for being accommodating.  I'm glad I pay for a 24 gym that isn't 24 hours.  I'm glad they now have super gyms and the money I pay goes towards the ghetto only ones.  I will NOT be upgrading.

So what did I do?  Come home and make nacho's.  Screw it. I basically threw the whole week because I've been consuming too many calories every day and now I blasted myself out of the water.  AWESOME D, Awesome.

Hope everyone else is less sabotaging than I am.

I have a dinner on Tuesday.  A lobster dinner with my boss and a doctor and a caseworker.  I don't know how I'm going to do this.




  1. OMG! How frustrating! I think the universe was maybe saying-Dizzy, today you need some nachos.

    Seriously though-just let the eating go, as just a craptastic experience.

    I was wishing today that I could make my mind view food as a fuel source only-no emotions attached. Wouldn't that be amazaballs?? Love you girl! You can do this!

  2. AAAARRRRGGGHHH! on your behalf! :O

    No, food doesn't help, but man! That was a perfect storm, fierce girl. You've come out the other side, march on. And enjoy the lobster.


  3. Jesus - how freaking frustrating is this! I want to punch all of them. Good God. UGH!

    Food doesn't help but seriously - I may have done the exact same thing.

    PS - I miss you too but you are always in my thoughts.

  4. Breathe Dizz! Its going to be okay. and I hate gym memberships that have all the upgrades and crap. BLah. I lost your email and if I ever go mia on the blogoshpere I want to keep in contact. Please email me at xoxoxo miss you girly!

  5. Keeping good shape is impossible without appropriate meals and well planned trainings. When I was working on my weight loss I found a lot of interesting info on Training programms, diets, and other tips for athletes as well as for people who visit gym occasionally (just like me). I've read about dietary supplements, which helped me get enough nutrition without overeating and keep my body energized. Now losing weight is much easier for me.
