I have so much stuff to update you guys on. I haven't been blogging (again). It's partly my $%#$$@^ horrible carpal tunnel, which is now in BOTH wrists, and partly ... well ... other stuff. Namely, I've gained weight and it bums me out alot. I'm exactly back to where I was pre-wedding. I am working on it, though, and the only failure is not trying and even then, there's always the possibility of redemption.
Bachelorette Party Wt.
Obviously, I know it could be worse...
Been there, done that.
Still, it's crazy how we can fall back into old habits. It's like putting on an old, comfy shirt. Fits like a damned glove. For me, these habits are pre-bariatric surgery in some ways and I'm five-years removed here. Food addiction is real, my friends. There is no cure, only remission. Relapse is part of recovery, or so they say. I have to believe that eventually I will come out of this battle, like I have so many times before. If I can lose 200 pounds, I can lose the 20 I regained and the 10 I still needed to lose. Seriously, what is 30 pounds in the face of 200, right?!?
Anywho, here are some snippets from my trip to Disney's California Adventure theme park on my birthday (June 2). Anyone want to guess how old I am? Go for it. (If you already know, don't guess. That's no fair.)
Some pics are blurry. I borrowed from JGago's bloggie blog. She also has a cute post about our trip to Santa Monica, which you should totally check out because the pics are much better than mine were!
Oh! And, last night, I made a yummy "Chinese" dish. I put it in quotations because I seriously doubt the authenticity here. :p
Soy-Pineapple Chicken with Orange Peppers and Fried Brown Rice.
I wasn't overly impressed with this TJ's fried brown rice, by the way.
And, finally, while I've been away, I taste-tested Yves Meatless Hotdogs.
Ryan cooking them (just because it's adorable):
Husband Rating: A++
Hotdog Rating: C+
Meh. They're okay. I much prefer Morningstar's Veggie Dogs.
Tonight, Ryan and I are going to the San Diego Wine, Cheese, and Chocolate Festival. It's usually $30/person (it's sold out, localites - sorry), but we're getting in free on a press pass (thanks JGago!). It pays to be a food blogger. :)
Be sure to check back this weekend for that post. San Diego has some AMAZING foodie stuffs, to be sure. xoxo
