Butts, Guts, Burgers and Ice Cream

Had a great workout this morning.  I ran 3.5miles in 37minutes and then immediately went to my Butts and Guts Class afterwords (an hour of torture on your legs, butt, arms and abs).  Quickly got home and then......

Went on a date with my little man today.  It was nice having some one on one time with him as it doesn't happen very often.  We spent the afternoon going out to lunch, seeing a play and getting some ice cream (in case you're wondering I used all of my 49 extra ww points at lunch - this was my splurge meal).  I was looking forward to lunch at the good burger place (the last time I had a burger there was August) but it wasn't open until 12pm and the play started at 1pm so that wasn't going to work.  We opted to go to another place that was a step above the golden arches when it comes to burgers but it wasn't 'THE' place to go for burgers.  On the good side it was a chain restaurant so when I got home I could look up the nutrition information online (my jaw dropped and my eyes popped when I read the nutrition info).

My son ate 1/2 a burger with some fries and a milk.  I ate a burger with a side of onion rings and a water (I also sampled some of my sons fries). 

My son requested that I take this picture.
After lunch we went to see the play If You Give A Cat A Cupcake.  It was a great play for the kids and my son loved it.  He asked me if we could go to a play again sometime (yay!).  After the play we went to the  the Dairy Bar for some ice cream.  I had some of my favorite Toasted Almond Amaretto with hot fudge and strawberries of course :-) and my son had a vanilla cone with blue and white sprinkles.

For dinner tonight I wasn't really hungry but felt the urge to have some vegetables and fruit so I ate some acorn squash and an apple with a glass of water (my detox meal).

Here is the nutrition info on the burger I ate - Yikes! - if you are eating something right now stop! - you may feel sick after reading this (I know I do).

To steel a quote or two from Super Size Me, I was getting some "McSweats" and the feeling of some "McGrease" on my face a few hours after eating.  If you are interested in watching a movie about fast food and what it does to your body Super Size Me is a great movie to watch.  If you think drinking excessive amounts of alcohol is the only way to kill your liver - well guess again.

7 1/2 Weeks Post Op - 185lbs

It's been almost 8 weeks since my surgery. I never thought I would see this day! The aqua therapy and physical therapy has paid off (as well as the surgery). My leg and back are pain free. Yesterday at my last physical therapy appointment I hopped, skipped, jumped and ran on the treadmill for 2 minutes! Pain Free!!! I never thought I would hear myself say the words: "I ran". My recovery time for this surgery was a lot tougher than the surgery I had last year. It feels like I can start to move forward. Unfortunately during my recovery time for comfort I've done a lot of eating. When I was actively exercising/running I would get a runners high. I think that was a big help to keeping me on track with my eating. The endorphins gave me a comfort high. However when I feel stress and lack of control and running isn't an option I tend to gravitate to food. Food and the pleasure of eating it is something I can control. Unfortunately there is a down side and that is we

Sonya 'Lost It'

Well it's now after Christmas and before New Years as I write this post.  I have been on hiatus for a long time on my blog.  I've been spending some of my time thinking about what I was going to write. I have been through some difficult times starting back in late October.  What I am about to write is very personal.   I feel a little bit foolish for sharing this with everyone as most people don't share their 'business' never mind posting it in a blog.  My hope in this post is to not have people feel sorry for me but that readers get an understanding for my situation and also an understanding of others who are going through something similar. Taking a deep breath. I am currently being treated for depression and anxiety and I'm almost finished with an intensive outpatient program at a local hospital (thankfully it's an amazing psychiatric hospital about 40 minutes from my home). For those who are reading this and have either gone through a depressive

Healthy Boundaries?

Growing up I always felt like I had to 'do what I was told' or else. A lot of what I learned as a child in terms of relationship bonds and my place in the world is mirrored in my adult relationships. It's taken me many years to figure what my mirror is showing me both good and bad. I'm guessing many woman (not all) have felt the pressure to conform to others expectations and at the same time not wanting to hurt anyone's feelings or risk being seen as uncooperative. The price woman have paid over the decades has been insurmountable. I think of the mom on Leave It To Beaver, and how woman either bought into or felt that's what they should aspire to. Later on in television was the Mary Tyler Moore Show. The show was about a single woman in her thirties working at a TV station. In the show she was portrayed as a strong independent woman who knew more than those she worked with. Many decades since then more women are in the workplace than ever and more are showing
