I hate you.
I'm hating you so much right now that I'm not even willing to google you to figure out your real name.
That's all I want to say.
Tori the carb addict.
This is my third time using The South Beach Diet plan.
I'm so good at it now that I don't need to look at the book anymore (hence me not remembering the guys name).
As I've said before, I am an accomplished yo-yo dieter.
South Beach is my favorite yo-yoing trick. It's easier than walking the dog.
Except this past week. See, it was my birthday. Well, not really. It was the day I finally got to celebrate my birthday with my dad and Ann. My dad is a fisherman extraordinaire and Ann does a mean fish fry. So if there is one meal I want for my birthday it's the fish my dad caught.
Unfortunately, fried fish doesn't really fit in the South Beach phase one plan. And I was on like day 9 of phase one (which means I was almost done and could move on to the "good carbs"). And when you cheat, you basically have to start over again--it's pure torture!!!
So I blew it.
And when I blow it, my mind starts thinking "well, if I'm gonna blow it, I should just blow it big!".
I mean who wants wants to go down smoldering? I want flames baby!
Big huge chocolate cake and fried fish FLAMES!
But then after I blew it that one day (which was last Wednesday), I looked ahead at my week and well, Sunday was not too far away. And we were having a pot luck on Sunday at our house.
Pot lucks.....who doesn't love a good pot luck. And just to be sure I would have a really good pot luck experience, I made all my favorites. (Flames! I want big ones remember)
This time it was white chicken chili with sweet cheesy corn bread muffins. Oh! and homemade mac and cheese from Mary at Deep South Dish. And I will tell you this, The Hubs loved that mac and cheese so much that he actually said this...."This mac and cheese is so good that it's worth you blogging!"
For all of you who don't know, The Hubs does not like my blogging. That's quite the compliment!
The pot luck was awesome and someone brought a whole chocolate cake from Portillo's. If you've never had chocolate cake from Portillo's you should go and get some right this minute. It's insanely evil, it's so good!
So now, I have a house full of left overs because I made too much food. And I have issues with throwing away perfectly good food (it's another one of those issues from being raised in Holland, MI and being surrounded by cheap Dutch people).
It will take me at least 4 days to finish off all this food (by myself).
And then.....I'm going to Florida next Tuesday with my girl friend. No one should be on a diet when you are on vacay.
And if I'm gonna go down in flames.....
