Food Intentions

I've been thinking about this post all morning. I started thinking about it in the shower, then while I was doing my hair. Then on my way to work I started planning out what I was going to say. Then I got to work and really, really didn't want to write this.

Why? Because this is another case of Kay having really good intentions and failing miserably. And talking about herself in the 3rd person.

I had a busy weekend. I went out on Friday night with 2 separate groups of friends. Drinks with one group, then a concert and boozin' with the #dgrm group.

Somewhere in the middle of that, I "forgot" to eat dinner. Mistake #1.

So after a few hours of sleep, I got up (hungover) at the ass-crack of dawn and shoveled my car out of the snow so my sister and I could go to ESPN's College Gameday at IU on Saturday morning.

It was so much fun. And totally worth going even without any sleep. But on the way there, I was starving.. So we stopped at McDonald's for breakfast. Mistake #2.

After that was all over, I went home. And slept. But I work for IU Athletics, so even though IU played a 9 o'clock pm game against Michigan Saturday night, I had to be at Assembly Hall at 5pm. And because I took that nap, I didn't have time to eat any kind of a dinner. So at the game I ate popcorn and a pretzel with cheese. Mistake #3.

Oh, and #3 IU beat #1 Michigan, for the record. But after the game, I immediately went home and fell asleep. Well because the life of an IU Athletics employee is never boring, I then had to wake up early again on Sunday to work the IU Women's Basketball game.
 It was also the Breast Cancer Awareness game, so I was extra busy. Super.

Because I knew I was going to be busy, I knew I was going to have to eat breakfast before I got to work. So I woke up in plenty of time to make myself breakfast. However, I had an internal battle. I didn't want to dirty a bunch of dishes and I really didn't want to get my toaster out. And I really, really didn't want to dirty my blender for a smoothie. So I didn't do any of those things. Instead I went to McDonald's again. Mistake #4.

I should point out that I don't even like McDonald's. I really don't. It's just so convenient.

I didn't want to write this post because it's embarrassing. But I did want to write this post because I want to hold myself accountable. Seeing my unhealthy weekend out there in writing is humiliation motivation.

I also wanted to acknowledge that every time I ate the McDonald's, I had a discussion with myself. I would say "just this last time, then I'll eat healthy again tomorrow." or "well eating this is better than starving myself and binging later." or "this will be the last time I eat out for a month!" I'm not kiddin, folks. Those were real things I told myself. After I finished my McDonald's yesterday morning, I felt so awful. I really beat myself up about my weekend last night while I was laying in bed. So I woke up this morning with a new attitude and decided to write this post. Today the Dietbet starts. I will get this shit under control. Amen.

  1. Very busy weekend girl! I'm exhausted just reading the post. Would it help for you to take some protein bars along with you next time? Or have some healthy snacks on hand that you can just shove in your purse? (I know easier said than done)

    1. I've thought about that! Or making little snack packs to keep around or grab quickly. Probably going to try to make the snack packs tonight and tomorrow! I'll keep ya updated! Thanks!

  2. Let me tell you this...I have been there. It is really tough to plan to eat, but thats what you have to do. Plan to eat. I think instead of thinking of it as meal time, look at it as scheduling time for yourself. When I started a few weeks ago, I just ate whatever but didn't plan. Now, I'm always thinking about food, but in a good way. I'm thinking about my food and planning to eat for my success. I hope this helps a little. Remember, we are in this together!



I love you people! Let's be friends.
