Is it possible to binge on broccoli? Because if so, I believe I just did... for what I intended to be my last meal in my thirties.
I would have had enough calories to stay in range and eat a normal dinner tonight, except my bosses thought it would be amusing to get a little cake, scribble Happy Birthday (misspelled) and an "A" on it (not enough room for the whole "Amanda") with decorating gel, and tell me *this* was my birthday cake. Which would be just fine (hey, they don't have to get me a cake) except this was an April Fool's decoy (they really did butcher it -- it was a hoot) and the bigger, prettier one comes tomorrow.
Unfortunately, I had a slice of the tiny one. There's 280 calories I'll never see again. Did I mention it was a pound cake? Yep, and just the fact that it was a pound cake erased its other sins.
But anyway, I was down to about 150 calories remaining for the day, so I planned to have an egg and broccoli for dinner.
What I ended up having was an egg and broccoli. And more broccoli. And more broccoli. Until I ate the entire steamer's worth, the equivalent of a bag of, say, a Publix frozen broccoli bag.
So yep, it was a broccoli binge.
And adding insult to injury, I then finally said the hell with it and ate another piece of cake.
I give. Plan Damage Control starts Monday. For now, I say Let Me Eat Cake!!!
