Welcome

Thank you for stopping by to perv on my blog, as I fight myself to change my old habits and make new ones to get fit. I don't get it right all the time, but I'm still here and I'm still working at it.

My homage to the 14lbs that I lost on Allan’s DDDY Challenges. A watering can for the vast oceans of water that I have learned to drink and love every day.

quick one....

I was saving calories for tonight's dinner as I knew it was going to be a big'un....but this was so far out of what I expected that I had to blog about it...

We had Chicken Rice & Sour Cream casserole....minus the chicken?!!!!!! sour cream casserole????? WTF? Where was I when sour cream became a main and not an accoutrement. This dinner was basically (mushy) rice in sour cream, cream of chicken soup, rotell (tomatoes & chilies), some onion soup mix or something... and covered in cheese that was melted (not even baked) on top. There was supposed to be chicken in it, but she forgot to add that...

HOLY SHIT! It was creamed mush with cheese....and about as tasty as that sounds to boot. I can't believe that people eat that shite. Her and her husband are both trying to lose weight... he even had lap-band done (lost 40lbs in the first three months over a year ago and no movement since). Little wonder if dinners consist of baked tubs of sour cream with some rice and cream of chicken soup! OMG just typing that made me feel ill.

Okay - I'll be fair, there was salad served as well - the bagged kind (I'm all for that - easier is better) but it was served with corn chips in it and the dressing... ranch (lite thank the gawds).

Anyway - I had a great time, enjoyed watching the football with them, but seriously... I worry for their colons. Get some protein and fibre people! Anyway, I stayed within my daily calories (hurray), but my gawds... I could have had a lot more of something way more enjoyable then that for dinner.

OMFG!! Just reading the description of that food makes me want to eat a bowl of Kellogs All Bran!

Eating out can be so difficult...

I'd be inviting them over to your place & feeding them decent food :)

LMAO @ sour cream being the main ingredient.

Sounds absolutely horrible!! I don't know if I could have sat there and even taken a bite just to be polite. I'd have claimed lactose intolerance or something. Good for you keeping within the calorie count. THAT, in and of itself, is a big win.

Oh man, that's pretty bad! Hope you had fun at least! Were you watching UT/Alabama?

Katie said...

BLEH! A friend of mine was working on losing weight, and I swear all she did was eat sour cream on everything.
I had horrible memories of that because it would turn my stomach.....and I can only imagine what you had to go through. UGH!

I'm with Lila on this.....invite them over and feed them good stuff! :)

Tamzin said...

Yes Miss Totegirl! Was watching UT get their arse spanked by Alabama!

Ouchie...although the second half was entertaining until the last 10 minutes when things got out of hand!

:D
