Ah, another glorious Initech weekend. Things have been much better there of recent, and I’m actually, gasp, not dreading returning tomorrow. It probably doesn’t hurt that I found out two weeks ago I have 62 hours of vacation time to use by the end of the year. I’m going crazy with my vacation days! 🙂
Next week might be E is for Exercise, because I need to work off all of the calories I ate this weekend. I can’t complain, though, sometimes indulging yourself in ridiculous fun weekends like this one is what life is all about.
So junk food…it is my kryptonite. If I could eat nothing but junk food, and be happy and healthy, I would. But, then again, who wouldn’t. This weekend, I decided to indulge in all of my favorites, all of those things you usually say to yourself, “That sounds delicious, but I know I shouldn’t have it,” before sticking to your celery and beet salad. Not this weekend. This weekend I thought “That sounds delicious, and I ate it!! Mwahahaha.
First up, Friday night, I had a Sweet 16 party. My first Sweet 16 party in a decade. Man, that made me feel super old. It’s been 10 years since I had my own Sweet 16. Where has life gone? It was a fun party, though. There was junk food EVERYWHERE!!!! Pizza, chips, cheese balls, cake, cupcakes, soda, it was a fat kid’s paradise! Which I guess makes me a fat kid, because it was delicious!!!
One question to ponder, though, as you relax on your Sunday off…when hosting a party, why does everyone only buy ONE kind of Doritos? I’d say 75% of the time they buy the Nacho Cheese Doritos, and forget about the Cool Ranch. I LOVE COOL RANCH DORITOS!!!!! Maybe people don’t understand how deep my love really is, but I swear, next party I host, there will be two types of Doritos there for guests to chose from. I do not discriminate!!
On Saturday, I had the ultimate sugar overload in the morning, because I am currently taking cake decorating classes. Yes, me, owner of a small bakery, does not know how to properly decorate a cake. It’s OK, though, I’m learning. The class is super early on Saturday mornings, though, so I usually roll out of bed, shower, and hit some sort of breakfast stand on my way to the class. Usually Panera, or Starbucks, something that tries to give me healthier options. Not yesterday, though. I turned up my radio, rolled down the window, and cruised into McDonalds. I still knew my order from memory: A number 2, orange juice, extra ketchup. Gosh, how long has it been since I had McDonalds breakfast? I wish I could tell you it’s disgusting, full of fat and salt and cholesterol, and I never want to eat another bite of it. But McDonalds breakfast may be the best high-calorie, fatty, fried, awful for your body breakfast out there. It’s so delicious. I wish I could eat it every day!!
After that, it was two hours in cake decorating class, where I made a chocolate raspberry cake with vanilla icing, and then home to enjoy my afternoon. Except, wait for it, my junk food love did not end there!! I went over to a friends house for dinner, where we had salad. I know, salad on my junk food weekend. Don’t worry, though, for dessert I had homemade apple pie. Then, after a quick run down the PA Turnpike, I met my brother for James Bond in IMAX. That means….movie theater popcorn!!!!! AHHHHHHHH!!!! That’s a treat I never indulge in. Never ever. This weekend, though, there are no limits.
Today is detox day. Don’t laugh, I’m being serious. After all of the sugar, starch, salt, fat, and calories I’ve ingested in the past 36 hours, today is all about getting it out of my system. Lots of water, lots of body-friendly food, lots of enjoying the fact that healthy foods can be wonderful too!! I’m thinking wheat germ and bananas for lunch…Yummy!!! (and no, that’s not a sarcastic yummy, I actually love those two foods together! If you have any good detox ideas or suggestions, though let me know.
All in all, a very good weekend. I don’t think I’d want to make this a weekly adventure, but once in awhile it’s nice to eat that cupcake you know you shouldn’t eat, or bite into a delicious Sausage Egg McMuffin and not feel guilty about it.
Long live the junk food!! Long live my poor stomach!!!
Have a wonderful week. See you all next week.
