Christmas + Family + Vacation = FOOD.

I love my family. A lot. They live in Florida and I live in Mississippi, so when we get together, we do it up right with copious amounts of beer, foods (fried and otherwise, I mean, c'mon, we're in the South), and family time.

These things are a recipe for disaster when it comes to getting healthy (and we wonder why my entire family has weight problems??). We ate so much seafood that I swear my blood is now probably super salty. And I'm pretty sure I drank my weight in Michelob Ultra Lime Cactus (it's why my dad happened to have around) and I also only managed to work out once while I was in FL - even though my dad has an exercise room RIGHT THERE on our property. Lazy - party of me.

However, somehow, I managed to weigh in this morning at 198.8. I guess I didn't do any seriously significant damage to my weight loss endeavors. But I'm just not sure how!

I ate these on Monday:

Please. Stare at their delicious cheesiness. Check out that homemade ranch dressing at the top left. Now, imagine the smell. I'm so upset there isn't a Cruisers anywhere near me. HELPFUL HINT: If you ever go to Jacksonville or St. Augustine, FL - you need to go to Cruisers Grill. But don't expect to stay on your diet. You need to eat those fries. And a burger. NOM. Please give me a moment, I need to wipe away some drool. ::Insert Elevator Music Here::


Basically, Christmas was great. I got to see my family, I got to eat yummy food, and my clothes still fit when I came back. Now, did I eat healthy food? No. No I did not. Did I exercise enough while I was there? No. No I did not. But dammit, It's CHRISTMAS. Jesus just likes me and wanted me to indulge in some yummy food before I get back in the saddle for 2012 - with my dad in tow (and hopefully Brian too)

I hope you had a wonderful holiday! Its almost 2012 - what are your resolutions?


  1. Go you! I'm sure you'll be a wonderful inspiration to your dad and Brian. You rock!

  2. CRUISERS CHEESE FRIES! I'm so jealous. My treat while I was home for Christmas was a Publix sub. Oh, and I bought eight (8) boxes of Great Grains.

    Happy almost New Year! My resolutions are to sleep more, become certified as a fitness instructor and finish my erotic fanfiction novel. And write more. And finally master eyeliner. I have about 30 more but that's a whole other blog post.
