back to the flat land
Do you guys feel like it’s harder to face a Monday when feeling bloated from an indulgent weekend? I do. As a kid, I always had anxiety on Monday mornings before heading off to school. I still get that way now at the start of a new work week. Those feelings are magnified by feelings of bloat and water renention from a weekend of unhealthy food and wine.
With that said, Vermont was a great time. Saturday night we went to that BBQ. Someone made pasta salad with velveta cheese in it. Yum. Vermonters love their meat so I caught a lot of crap when I handed over my veggie burgs to the grill master. Oh well, that’s part of it I guess. I also tried jello shots for the first time. People can’t believe that I’m almost 30 and had never had a jello shot. Quite frankly, jello is made out of horse hoofs and that grosses me out and vodka doesn’t rank high on the list either. People seem to love those little pixie cups of tendons and booze. Me? Not so much.
Sunday we had an amazing brunch at our friends place then headed to the mountains for a long walk. I only brought flip flops with me so we couldn’t do anything intense. It was a beautiful day and Ellie had such a great time. On the way home we stopped for lunch, then for ice cream. I had the biggest cone of peppermint stick and almond joy with sprinkles. Dinner was veggie pad thai which sent me to bed in a complete food coma and increased my number of chins. Not cool.
I’m going to focus on eating clean this week, whatever that means.
