Pep talk to kick my own unhealthy ass.

I need to start making some major decisions.  No, not if I'm going to have regular Bud Light or a BL with tomato juice (that's a called a Red Beer, for all those that don't know and it's DE-LISH, see this blog is educational).

I need to be truthful with myself and with you.

Really, I need to straight pull my head out of my ass and stop acting like I'm 21 years old without a healthy care in the world.

Wanna know what I had for dinner last week?  Well, I don't care if you don't care, you're going to find out anyway.
Monday-Nachos with mozz cheese, jalapenos and onions loaded on a mound of tortilla chips with homemade salsa and fat free sour cream.
Tuesday-Nachos with mozz cheese, jalapenos and onions loaded on a mound of tortilla chips with homemade salsa and fat free sour cream. Plus 2 beers.
Wednesday-Supreme Totinos pizza (yes, the whole thing). And 6 beers.
Thursday-Nachos with mozz cheese, jalapenos and onions loaded on a mound of tortilla chips with homemade salsa and fat free sour cream. Also, 2 cups of mint cookie crunch ice cream (but it was the low fat version) that I ate straight out of the container.
Friday-6 tall boy Bud Lights (16oz) and some Lays Potato Chips. (That's stellar, Laura, just stellar.)
Saturday and Sunday-Too bad to even type, but there may have been multiple beers involved and cheesy enchiladas.

And the only exercising I did was 12 ounce curls (bringing beer can from table to mouth) and a 1 hour walk on Saturday night.  
At least I wasn't totally sedentary. 

Well. There you have it. I have officially won the 'you are a lazy unhealthy green monkey turd' trophy. I shall put it on my dresser.

And it's a total SHOCKER why I haven't lost any weight.

A freaking baby horsefly could figure out why I haven't lost an ounce.

So, where do I go from here.
Well, I go straight to the Belt of Death (aka Treadmill) and run my F*ing pooper off. Literally.
I also go to damn grocery store and by lettuce.
I then proceed to eat lettuce and air for pretty much the rest of my life. Joyous.

Ok, that's a little extreme. But y'all get the idea.

I know what to do. 
-I need to break up with Mr. Tortilla
-I need to dust off the tennies and actually use them for more than closet decorations.
-And I probably need to give the booze a break.
What?! Did I just type that?! 
Did aliens take over my body? Have I gone mental? Has the world ended?  Y'all still with me? Yes? Ok, good.

Today's a new day, right? Right.
I can do this, right? Right.
I want to be healthy, right? Definitely right.

So.....Go get 'em Tiger!!! Be the badass that we (or at least I) know you can be!!! 
OK, lets do this.

Good pep talk everyone. Thanks for listening.


  1. Sounds like a plan to me! Just remember that yesterday is gone - fahgetabadit - tomorrow is yet to be.. All we have is today!! I'm behind you all the way!

  2. O-M-G! Guess what I ate this weekend? Yep, a whole lot of NACHOS! And, wait for it, BEER! (And a bunch of other crap as an added bonus!) So here's to us both kicking ourselves in the a$$ and moving on. : )

  3. Yep, have to agree with the other ladies. Last week is exactly that, last week. This is a whole new week and a whole new opportunity to try the trial seperation from Mr. Nacho. (Yes he's delish...but he really doesn't do us any favors...we're doing all the work in that relationship!) You are SO worth this change and getting those running shoes back on girlie. Heck, take Wyatt for a walk each evening for 30 mins if nothing else. I bet he'd LOVE that. :)

    Love you - you CAN do this!!

  4. I dont think I love beer as much as you, I would even venture to say that YOUR love of beeer may equal Heathers love of beer. Like I never know what sounds really good right now? A BEER? No. I would rather have a pepsi any day of the week, so it will be a little harder for you to give it up than it was me. BUT, I will say...what i miss is getting drunk with everyone else! That part sucks. But i only ruled out beer and wine...not jello shots! So...there is always hope. I was just drinking a lot of calories between beer, wine, and all the regular sodas. So it can't hurt. Well, it could make you grumpy and then you may HURT it a try anyways :)

  5. I tried to leave Mr. Tortilla...but he just keeps coming back. :P Good luck, little lady! You can do it! :)

  6. Why can't I eat like that and not gain 10 lbs? Grr! lol

  7. Mr. Tortilla is a man whore. I think he is coming over tonight...

  8. You can eat like that and still look the way you do? If you weren't so cute, I'd have to hate you a little bit. ;)

  9. If it makes you feel any better, my diet has been just as craptastic. Everything they sell out here is fried, and I have no kitchen to cook anything. Oh, and add on waffles for breakfast every morning, because they have them here in the hotel and I have no will power. Ahhh! All right, no I feel better too. We can do this!

  10. I have to give up the booze too. I'll start tomorrow.

  11. You can do this. You don't have to stop eating nachos and drinking beer- just limit it to like one day.......(or two)

  12. "Also, 2 cups of mint cookie crunch ice cream (but it was the low fat version) that I ate straight out of the container."

    Is there any other way to eat ice cream? :)

    Good luck! I've had some luck tracking calories at

  13. Whenever I swan dive off the healthy wagon I rebound with the Eat Clean Diet. Tosca is fab at fifty (and she has a blog).

    Good Luck this week.

  14. Beer was a hard one for me to give up. It's funny that it has taken me this long to find your blog, we are so similar, beer and nachos = my idea of heaven.


I love hearing from y'all, so leave a comment!
