I MUST have been VERY hungry this week...

Because it's the only reason why I did this to my body.

Many of you know that I am a pretty healthy eater and try to follow the 80/20 rule, which is to make good choices 80% of the time and can slack off with smaller portions for the rest.
I rarely, if ever, eat fast food and if I do it is Chick-fil-a a few times a year.

The boyfriend's parents are in town from Florida and we were headed to Orange County for a wedding.
On our way we stopped at In-N-Out and had burgers, fries and milkshakes.
The wedding was the same night and dinner and cake (2 servings for me) just a few hours later.

After the wedding it was getting late, which means we were getting hungry so naturally we had In-N-Out again. And milkshakes.

The next day I was craving Chick-fil-a because we don't have them in LA or Vegas.
I had the 8 piece nuggets with their special sauce, a few fries, and a vanilla ice cream cone.

There's more...

Back in Vegas the following day I had soup and a bagel with cream cheese (I NEVER eat bagels).
And FINALLY tonight we hit a casino buffet ( I NEVER do buffets, but most parents seem to love them- so we went). It happens to be the best buffet in town (4.5 stars with 700 reviews) my expectations were high.

I had 3 servings of sweet potatoes...and lots of random stuff like fish, chicken, rice, roasted potatoes, mac and cheese, fruit and at least 6 desserts.

I apologize if there are any typos as I will not be re-reading my food log the last 4 days.
This past week was more like 20/80 and my body feels it.

I think I will feel it for a while.

Unfortunately I am not a big believer in using detox methods to cleanse your body so I won't be going on any 'diets'...though maybe I should reconsider this time.

Luckily the boyfriend's parents are leaving town in the morning and temptations won't be so strong.

Does anybody else go crazy like this sometimes?

I feel like I have no self-control when I am around people I haven't seen in a while or celebrating a special occasion, but I normally do a lot better. I also happen to have a boyfriend that has a fast metabolism and mine wants to keep up...


  1. What buffet did you go to?

  2. Let me tell you this...... I very much so do believe in the "cleansing diets"! It leaves you feeling refreshed after doing a 20/80 :) I bought a "skinny tea" at a health food store and let me tell you it works miracles! Always keep in mind that "Holiday" calories do not count, "eating while standing calories" dont not count, and "birthday calories" never count! So eat, drink and be merry!

  3. Jenny, we went to the M Resort buffet.

    Teri, I can't do detox diets because then I end up overeating and feeling more deprived so I just try to eat as 'clean' as possible as many days of the week as I can, meaning no frozen, canned or anything out of a bag.

  4. i feel your pain... i've been doing this for the past month and am crashing into a brick wall where i don't want to eat anything now!! you're not alone, sistah!
