Fell off the wagon...

June 18th, 2015 at 07:47 am

We got Five Guys for dinner. In full disclosure, I still feel it was worth it overall. There's just some guilt that I ultimately could have done without it.

***DISCLAIMER: The next part of this story gets a little gross if you're squeamish like me...***

I fully intended to make lemon pepper chicken with potatoes au gratin and veggies yesterday. However, when I got home somewhere between 630 and 7, I was greeted by a crate full of crap...literally. DD2 had gone in her crate. She's been having lots of diarrhea lately, so it was mostly liquid and she'd smeared it everywhere. As I was going to get her out, she did what she normally does which is sit and wait for me to open the door. However, her tail was swishing right in the pile of you-know-what. So she comes out of her crate, guns blazing, and despite my best efforts to get her out of the apartment as fast as possible, she still managed to smear poop on my purse, SO's travel bags, and several walls. After I walked them, I immediately put her into the bathtub and got her cleaned up. And then I had to address everything else. Basically, by the time everything was clean (including me since I definitely needed a shower afterwards), it was almost 8 and SO still wasn't even home yet (he was supposed to get off at 5).

All of that made me really upset and the last thing I wanted to do was make dinner. I even tried to talk myself into it. I reminded myself of my goals - both financial and weight-related. Nothing worked. I was convinced nothing would make me feel better than a huge burger and a bag of greasy fries. And actually, I did feel a lot better and while my wallet is definitely lighter, my weight didn't really increase.

Tonight, I will be cooking the chicken, potatoes, and veggies as SO's friend will be spending the night.

    I can totally picture what happened! Been there - done that! LOL!
    I would want dinner out too! Smile
    Could it be diarrhea caused by stress? Even just a little stress for some dogs make them, umm, squirt. :/
