My husband let me have my debit card alone for a little bit last night.
I hesitate to post something like that, because my inner women’s libber want’s to be like “let me? LET me? Oh no you DIDN’T!!!”
So I just want to put it out there that this is an agreement we made together that I’m relinquishing control of the debit card for a little while. Just until I create a pattern of success as far as breaking my drive thru habit.
So, last night I needed the debit card to go make an ATM deposit, and my son and I drove to the bank and got that done. I passed a Sonic, an Arby’s, a Wendy’s, a McDonald’s, and a Jack in the Box. Passed, I tell you.
So, that felt good. A little willpower in action.
Incidentally, not to go into Everything I Eat Mode… but I’ve pretty much kept up the same kind of diet that I described on Wednesday for the remainder of the week. “Weight Loss Shake” for breakfast. Carrots and yogurt as snacks, salad and/or frozen dinner for lunch, and a sensible dinner at home.
Which brings me to my love/hate relationship with Slim-Fast shakes (mine are off brand, but the same concept). Does the phrase “and a sensible dinner” flash back to Slim-Fast for anyone else but me? I get visions of Tomma Lasorda, or the Slim Fast can with a belt on.
The love part. I think they taste good. Or at least good enough. I’m not, like, choking it down. They’re super easy for a non-morning person such as myself who refuses to take time to eat breakfast at a table or at my desk. I drink the shake in the car, and I’m good.
I hate the name. I feel like I’m a fad-dieter when I’m drinking a “Slim Fast” or a “Weight Loss Shake”. It’s like I’m buying into a get-rich-quick scheme.
I hate buying them. I feel like I’m being judged by the cashier or the people behind me in line. “Slim Fast? Yeah, good luck with that, lady.”
Why am I so weird about this? Am I being crazy?
What other no-prep breakfast options are out there with the convenience of a Slim Fast? Anyone?
