Monday Meltdown

Just like some some of you out there in the blogosphere, I feel a need to keep things real here.  In that vein, I'm going to share the day I had yesterday.  Just to keep things real.  So here we go:
  • Wake up with no voice.  Whatsoever.
  • The combination of the party on Saturday, girls' drinking swimming party yesterday, and my dang asthma have rendered me unfit for any form of human contact.
  • Immediately decide to linger in bed for a bit.
  • Lie Giggle to husband when he calls from golf course and asks what I'm doing.  "Working."
  • Drink lots of tea.
  • Decide to remain in pj's.
  • Eat egg whites.
  • And twenty minutes later, a toasted bagel with butter. (Fiber One!)
  • Actually sit at computer and blog work.  For a bit.
  • Do some laundry.
  • Go to kitchen, open fridge and eat about 4 cups of Cape Cod Chicken Salad from Costco.
  • Feel very full for about 3 hours.
  • And a little sick.
  • Rest while watching Lifetime movie about bad neighbors.
  • Make HUGE mistake and answer phone.  Annie.  She wants to go to Weight Watchers' meeting.
  • Do more laundry.
  • Giggle more when husband calls.  Sorry, Gloria.
  • Take shower, shave legs--less weight.  Do not apply any lotion because of ounce factor: It might impact my weight.
  • Go to Weight Watchers weigh-in.  Have officially gained 7, SEVEN, pounds since joining.
  • Come home with Annie and drink some wine.
  • Eat a small salad.
  • Take diuretic.
  • Finally put lotion on itchy legs.
  • Good night peeps.

Keeping it real, girlfriend, just keepin' it real!

We must FACE our biggest challenges. And then drink Chardonnay once we do. Makes everything better, don'tcha think???

Joanie said...

I think Wine is least it is on MY weight watchers regime.

Sassy said...

I know I'll do anything to not add those extra ounces at weigh every little bit helps!!!! Feel better soon!

Really seven pounds, I'm sorry but I'm laughing so hard....I'm sorry, really.

You are so stinkin' funny I just can't stand it. I'm trying really, really hard to stay off blogs this week so I can get some stuff done--SURE!!!--but I am drawn here. And it was worth it. I mean...I don't know whether to say I'm sorry, YAY!, or what :). But I did look up cape cod chicken salad and it sounds really good. And I know you aren't having any problem following all of the many subjects I'm talking about because this is what we mentalp-people do...BWAHAHAHA!

Have a great week. And lotsa wine.

Chesapeake Bay Woman said...

Skip all the food and increase the wine intake substantially. I lost 15 pounds that way.

Of course I was experiencing a major Life Crisis, but I still think the basic formula of less food and more wine works well in any situation, dieting or not.

So sorry about your asthma. I hate it when that happens.
And the weight watchers. Seven pounds. I'm pretty sure you're not their next spokes-person.
Poor Mama!

I wanna lay around in my PJ's and watch Lifetime!

Starwoodgal said...

I have never lost weight with WW, only gained. The only thing that has ever worked - low or no carbs. I'm just one of those no sugar people.

Sad thing is - no wine - which makes me whine.

Keetha said...

That day sounds great - the blogging, the Lifetime movie - right up until you get to the WW meeting. And also? Where was the ice cream? Or the bag of miniature Snickers? That's what I would have had my face in.

tj said...

...I think you should reweigh yourself today. By all means that 4 cups of chicken salad was probably 7 pounds all by itself and it certainly has moved on by now... ;o)

...I wish I had an Annie nearby - that gal sounds like a godsend...

...Hope today is better MPM!

...Blessings too... :o)

I always weigh myself right after I exercise and pee... but before I rehydrate and take a shower...

I figure sweating and peeing reduces my weight by... well some fractional amount... and the rehydrating and shower adds weight of water either in me or clinging to my body somewhere...

Every drop counts!

Daryl said...

Aw ..sometimes the harder you try .. it just makes you want to not try.

I will bet your asthma meds play into the weight gain .. hey, I'm here trying to help!


Caution Flag said...

I do not understand why you went to that meeting. You were doing great right until that moment.

Krysta said...

even though they're ugly maybe invest in some crocs they don't weigh anything... a hair cut... umm no hair products in the hair... no lotion, perfume, no nail polish all that should take another couple ounces off.

Lisa J said...

You poor thing, that is a terrible day if I do say so myself. I hope you get to feeling better pretty soon, or take full advantage of it and milk it for all it is worth. Either way, you need to be pampered.

Big Hair Envy said...

I like the CBW diet plan.....less food, more wine. How can you go wrong with that?

Perhaps you would like to join me at my next fitness class. Although, I may not live to go back. I wrote about it today.

Bear Naked said...

That'll do it every time.

Bear((( )))

imbeingheldhostage said...

It was the pajamas-- I don't know how, but having them on too long makes you appear to weigh more. Veg around starkers and try again next week.

hm, I'm all for facing the challenges head on...then drinking to recover...

Tonjia said...

doesnt weight watchers just piss you off? LOL I am rejoining on sept 2nd we can lament together.

My doctor advised me against trying to obsess on losing weight while going through menopause, according to her it just isnt going to happen, but I have gained 8lbs so I have to get that off. (along with 50 more! LOL)

have another drink of wine! I hope your throat is ok. are you peeing all day today? LOL

Flea said...

It sounds like joining WW has caused you to gain weight. I say drop your membership.

Debbie said...

I haven't been facing anything for a week but jail whiners and murderers. I didn't know you lost your Mom 7 years ago? I lost mine 5 years ago and I love it when I dream about her too.

Your other dreams require expert interpretation! Oh my!

It was the 4 cups of chicken salad. Had to weigh at least 7 lbs.!

Alias Liz Jones said...

Well I gained 2 pounds in a hurry my own self this month. Thanks for keeping it real Mental P Mama.
I didn't have wine today, but I swilled the Cola products down.

Egghead said...

Ummm chomp chomp chomp! I Umm haven't gained an ounce. I write this as I am snacking mindlessly on my toffee covered peanuts. Gads! Reading this made me at least become conscious of what is going in my mouth. So see! You have helped mankind today.

Country Girl said...

I think the entire 7 pounds came from the Costco chicken salad. And are you taking meds for the asthma? I bet they play into it. And then, of course, there's the wine. Yeah.

When I did WW, I lost the most weight per week on those weekends that I did not drink.

Oh, it was difficult. I cried and I swore, but eventually I just ended up smoking a joint and all was well.

Ha! Just wanted to make sure you were listening! No, really. I was.

Hilary said...

I'll bet it was the wet boxers .. they weigh in pretty heavy. ;)
