Crazy November

November is my busiest month of the year. My neice and nephews were all born in November, one of my sisters was born in November, Thanksgiving is in November.....and a whole bunch of other things go on this month.

Birthdays and Thanksgiving are fun, but they all have one thing in Damn food.

Last night we went out to eat at a new restaurant downtown that is all local and organic, so that's cool. I ordered a tuna burger and didn't eat the whole thing.  I was pretty proud of myself. Then one of my sisters suggested dessert. I'm sure she was totally right about how good the ice cream is and how delicious everything else is.

Ice cream is my weakness. Total weakenss. I can't even tell you the last time I had ice cream. The server started rambling off the flavors of ice cream and I just put my head down and put my hands over my ears. I'm sure it was quite a site and I probably looked like an asshole, but I was in hell at that exact moment.

To make matters worse there was no way I could just get up and go outside while everyone had dessert. The restaruant is very small and we were all packed in at our table. I would have had to make 2 people get up to let me out.

So, I sat there. I sat there and I watched everyone eat cake and ice cream. I was so freakin' happy when everyone was done.

Today I have to go to my nephew's birthday party. There will be a lot of food there. A lot of food made by my mom, who is the best cook in the world. I'm trying to figure out what the hell I need to do. I'll figure it out. I'm getting ready to go to the gym and I usually have some of my best thoughts when I'm at the gym.


  1. Proud of you for getting though the ice cream episode, ice cream is my failing too. We have a GNO group that meets every other week they always get dessert, it used to bother me now it doesn't, sometimes I will have a spoonful of someone else's dessert and that's all I allow myself.
    I'm sure you will figure out what to do today, I would probably focus on socializing rather than the food myself

  2. ouch. good for you for not participating in the goodies!

  3. What amazing will power you had! Ice cream and I use to love each other, it no longer agrees with me so it's easy to turn it down, now cake is another story I love it but it doesn't love me back but I will still have 1-2 bites just to taste!
    Good job on that will power, proud of you!

  4. Good for you, sticking to your food plan while everyone was ordering ice cream!!

    When my mom would have everyone over for birthdays, I would actually bring my own food and dessert to stay on plan. Maybe it's a little extreme, but it's always an option! Good luck!

  5. and then comes december and january and HOLD ME :)
