Day two, hump day equals grump day

Please tell me someone is reading this, because I am miserable. Today started at 4am, the headache I went to bed with woke me up and I couldn’t fall back asleep.

I should mention I spent last weekend in Austin and I am coming off a bender. I liken myself to a crack head coming down from a high cold turkey.

To put things in perspective, let’s review some of my food adventures from last weekend. I kicked things off right with tacos and queso from Torcy’s Taco and finished it off with a custom built snickerdoodle cookie and peanut butter ice cream sandwich from Coolhaus. In between that goodness, we took a little road trip to Lockhart, TX, the BBQ capital of Texas, to eat at Kreuz Market. It just so happens that I have a photo of the sausage, brisket, and pork chop my boyfriend and I shared.

I washed all that BBQ down with a coke in old school glass bottle. Other notable mentions from the weekend include buffalo fried pickles with a gorgonzola sauce, black truffle pomme frites, and chicken fried olives stuffed with pimento cheese. So yeah, this girl is hurting.

If the headache, hunger, and lack of sleep weren’t enough, today I had my fitness test for work. It’s something they make us do every 6 months to remind us to lay off the doughnuts. The test consists of push-ups, sit-ups, flexibility text, and a mile and a half run. It’s really not that vigorous but running in this dreadful rainy weather was the last thing I wanted to do today.

As day two closes, I wonder how in the world I am going to do this. I am already sick of boiled eggs. And as I mentioned yesterday, I really prefer my chicken and fish fried. But as my father always says, “if you play, you pay”. And I certainly played last weekend – and paying now.

Motivation: Alaska. This summer I am going to Alaska for two weeks. One week of that will be spent on a cruise ship which lends itself to extreme over eating. The food is all inclusive and there is access to it 24 hours a day. I figure I better start the damage control now.
Breakfast: Hard boiled egg and Activia.
Exercise: Fitness test
