I ate all sorts of things. I had beer. I had chocolate (gluten free but not butter free brownies are super good!). I had wheat pancakes with bacon and real maple syrup. And, I didn't really get all that much exercise. BUT (and that's a very big but, but a but nonetheless), I was completely aware of every thing that I ate. I knew my almond roca were 200 calories. I knew that the battered halibut and the half a bowl of clam chowder were probably well over 1000 calories. I knew it. But I wanted to enjoy a weekend of eating without making myself sick full and without having to say no to everything.
So goodbye brownies. Ciao clam chowder. Au revoir maple bacon pancakes! I will miss you, but you are not worth being fat for. Perhaps I will visit you again in a few months. For now, we must part ways so I can continue to improve my relationship with slim fasts and salad.
