The body of the e-mail in not so few words told me I was fat, lazy, hypocrite who preaches healthy eating and exercise but sits around on my fat ass blogging 24/7.
When I clicked reply and responded to it, I found that the e-mail address had been deleted.
Now, I don't know about most of my readers but I don't consider running after a feisty 20 month old from 8AM-8PM, dealing with an ever growing and teething 6 month old when I'm not running around and even sometimes when I am, making breakfast lunch and dinner for everyone, cleaning the house, re-cleaning the house the zillion times it is messed up by aforementioned 20 month old, changing dirty diapers, doing all the dishes, doing all the laundry (which is never ending) and doing it ALL BY MYSELF lazy. Maybe it is, but if that's so I think Webster needs the heads up. In addition, if sitting down once my children are asleep to blog for about an hour or two consists of sitting on my fat ass all day, then smite me because dear lord I'm guilty!!
I truly don't understand people's needs to berate, belittle and harass people on the internet that they don't even know. Are we in high school again? Oh wait, not even in high school were any of my peers so immature and shady. At least anyone who had shit to say to me, said it to my face. Then on top of that YOU go all CHICKEN SHIT on me and won't even allow me to respond to your idiocy in e-mail. Instead you force me to expose your blatant stupidity here on my blog. Fortunately, I am not easily fazed by people like YOU. I have dealt with imbeciles who feel better because they call me names or insult me all my life and believe me I have been called a whole hell of a lot worse by better people than you so don't think you went and ruined my day. In fact you gave me a pretty awesome post topic. So thanks!!
On another note, thanks to all you fabulous readers who provide good advice/support/comments. I truly appreciate you all.
And to proceed ALL OF THAT, I must admit I did not do so good today eating. At least I don't think I did. I'm going to count up all my calories here and you, my readers will see firsthand my failure (if it is in fact a failure . . . which I am sure it is - at least for the day) So here it is. Today's food log:
BREAKFAST - COFFEE W/CREAM + MUFFIN = 310 CALS
LUNCH - LEAN CUISINE MUSHROOM, SPINACH PANINI - 320 CALS
DINNER (AND THIS IS WHERE THE UH OH, OH NO HAPPENED - I THINK)
Tinga which consists of:
1 boiled chicken breast - 222 cals
2 tomatoes - 66 cals
1/2 red onion - 24
5 TBSP chipotle chiles in adobo sauce
Lettuce - 19
Queso Fresco - 160
Crema - 300
Refried beans - 240
Tostada shells - 480
DESSERT - ANGEL FOOD CAKE + STRAWBERRIES + SUGAR = 133 CALS
FOR A GRAND TOTAL OF 2, 319 CALS
OMG! LOL I have to laugh or I'll cry.
You may be wondering WHAT THE HELL POSSESSED ME TO EAT ALL THAT FOR DINNER. Well, honest to God truth. I don't know 100% sure that my numbers are right. I estimated high because I don't know exactly how much I ate.
You see, Tinga is a Mexican dish that combines boiled and shredded chicken with red onions tomatoes and chipotle chiles. This in and of itself isn't so high in calories. However, they then take a flat tostada shell, lather it in refried beans, add the Tinga to the top then cover that in lettuce, queso fresco (cheese) and crema (Mexican sour cream).
My family requested this for dinner tonight and so I obliged. I THOUGHT I would eat LESS by instead of making individual tostadas by putting a pile of the stuff on my plate and eating it that way. WRONG! I normally could eat approximately 3-4 correctly made tostadas. I think I ate the equivalent of like 6. But again, I'm not sure. Everything was estimated. So now that I have confessed this, tomorrow is back on plan. Back to the grind.
Oh and this morning (of all mornings) I broke the 298 barrier and went down to 297. Yeah, I'm thinking after tonight that won't be what the scale says tomorrow. In any case, I'm off to do some much needed Wii-ing. Much Love.
