Full again, naturally

Dear Body,

I know you like chocolate frosted toaster pastries for breakfast. I know they are nommy and delicious. But every time you eat them your stomach hates you for HOURS, so STOP EATING THEM.

Love, Your Brain

Did get to the gym this morning and did only 35 minutes ellipsis, then a 10-minute easy walk/cool down on the treadmill. Ate toaster pastries for breakfast (bad). Had a few Triscuits for snack (okay). A Banquet frozen chicken lunch meal (iffy). Did not snack afternoon. sillymagpie came over and rahirah came home and we went out to Flavors of India for dinner. Ate tikka kabob and lamb & spinach and another chicken dish with lovely rice, naan & raita, and those spicy crackers, plus an Indian beer (Taj Mahal). All unbelievably nommy. Am full now, and undoubtedly ate far more calories than I worked off.

My office takes "casual Friday" to another level and calls it "Company Name Friday" and we all get t-shirts to wear. So Friday mornings I leave the gym a walking advert for my company, since my gym bag and my water bottle also have the familiar logo prominently displayed.

Tomorrow is Saturday and I will not exercise. So there.

Nummy Indian! Who could resist? Not I, not I.

Look at it this way -- even if you hadn't worked off ALL of the calories, at least you worked off SOME. And from the sound of it, your workouts are serious!

I do try, once I get started!

So weird that you should mention these, because for the last week I've found myself eyeing them at the grocery store (well, the chocolate or the cinnamon, whichever happened to jump into my line of sight first). And sure, they were those nice "organic" ones, but still...

I love them, but apparently my stomach is wiser, because it seems to never fail, when I eat them, I feel yucky for a good part of the morning. I may have to give them up!

I'm a Pop Tarts girl, I confess, but only unfrosted and fruit-filled. I'll even eat them untoasted. But why does your body hate the chocolate ones so much?

I wish I knew! *sob* These are may favorites, a local store brand that for some reason just has a nicer taste (to me) than Pop Tarts (although Pop Tarts are good, too, so maybe if I just change brands again...).

My mother's work (frou-frou psych hospital) casual Friday is even stranger. You are allowed to wear jeans if they're nice and in good condition (no holes). But ONLY if you wear one of their logo shirts. However, wearing said logo shirt prevents them from doing their job sometimes, since they are not allowed out in public with patients (the patients are sometimes allowed to walk across the street to the Walgreens/grocery store), since having a shirt showing the name of the facility would then give away where the person comes from, and thus break the confidentiality clause made to protect those patients. Wacky rule, but there you go.

Sounds like that's the same wacky privacy rule that prevents one's supervisor from even politely inquiring how you're feeling...!

I'm actually proud of my company, I think it's a good one to work for, and it's been on the whole very good to me. Plus, we ARE allowed to wear jeans any time we want, it's just on Friday we can also wear a t-shirt.
