Winner winner low-carb dinner...

Whew...one whole completely carbless day down. Cutting the insulin seems to have worked so that's a relief. As far as being diabetic goes, I'm not the best, but I am trying a little harder since I think it would make my mom sad to see me being so lackluster with my health given the fact that she died from like all the shit I have now. I'm trying, Mom! Kindly lay off. Thanks, love ya!

We went to trivia tonite and actually DIDN'T LOSE! Well, 2nd place, which any Ricky Bobby fan will tell you is really just the 1st Loser, but it's still better than 4th! I got a couple good ones so I was happy. Truth be told, I think we only won because the British dude was back in town. That dude is too dang smart. He knows the headscratchers that we always have to guess on. Good times.

It was also Angel's birthday so there was CAKE. Those dirty fucking bastards. I stayed strong. Not even a bite. You guys shoulda seen me...I was in rare form. "Cake? Oh heavens no. None for me, thanks!" So everyone around me ate cake and drank beer and I had like 6 damn glasses of water. Kinda made me feel like an asshole, but whatever. I'm over it and I feel accomplished, so it was worth it. Cake looked kinda dry anyway (not that I still wouldn't have buried my face in there and motorboated that sumbitch.)

Here's some pics, then I'm going to sleep cause I am freaking tired. Nite dudes.

About 30 candles short, but whatever...
Dirty cake bandit.
Documented proof that we don't suck that bad when there's at least one british dude present to answer all the questions about American History.

Fonzin' it.

It's so hard to not eat when everyone around you is eating. I just tell myself that when I get to my goal weight, I'll be able to indulge a little bit more cuz I'll be maintaining rather than trying to lose.

TjRenee said...

Yeah, I saw those candles and thought 'what is she, 10'? hehehe

Is that dude licking his lips all sexy like? Hmmmm...

I would have had to at least fondled the icing or something, so you're a better cake avoider than I am.

i'm proud of you! you rock!

Amie said...

Nice! to everything - 2nd place, and resisting the evil that is cake.

Diana said...

I'm happy to hear you're taking care of yourself better. I was worried about your diabetes. Serious stuff. Your mom would be proud. :)

Lorie said...

Cake is the devil......

Dina said...

Congrats on your hot British guy being back. And congrats on second!

Yeah that cake didn't look so yum, good thing you didn't break your carb fest!

*high fives* to coming second!

dirty fucking cake bastards.

British people are just awesome *points at self* see?

TJ said...

good job on being an "asshole" last night! whoo hoo! what you need to do is imagine the cake ( or any of your favorite foods) with poop on it. lol My brother gave me that idea last month when we were all at my parents hose and I was faced with temptation after temptation of yumminess. HE said that everything smelled or tasted like poop. lol Whatever works. lol

Way to kill the insulin, you beat that sucker into the dirt! and LMAO @ motorboated.....

Julie said...

I am so proud of you on the cake thing! I love cake..so I know how hard this can be...but it takes the average person just a few minutes to eat a piece of cake...so it's not really prolonged torture. Maybe just force yourself to go pee...especially after all that water.... and when you come back, they're done..and you've accomplished 2 things :)

The good feelings from a big slice of crappy bday cake go away after a few minutes; the good feelings that accompany showing a little willpower and intestinal fortitue last considerably longer (up to 14 seconds).

Good job on your trivial pursuit... and your not-so-trivial one.

Gigi said...

That cake looked nasty and dry - you were smart to keep away.

Pam said...

Wow! Congratulations chica! To pass up on bday cake when everyone else is stuffin' their faces is a mighty strong thing to do. You done real good! Truth is, most bday cakes are crappy tasting anyways, but we're too busy scrapin' it up to really notice. I mean, it is CAKE, right? That thing we all loved as kids and didn't care how sugary lardy sweet that frosting was 'cause we were too busy shoving it in and thinking about all those presents that didn't belong to us but we would hopefully get a shot at "trying" them out.
I wasn't as strong as you last Saturday. I gave in. And though I'm not beating myself up about it, I am thinking that it just isn't worth it. Onwards, eh? Go Tricia!

Sara said...

Girl gave up CAKE.

Damn. I sit at your feet.

Good to hear you got the insulin balanced out. I was kinda wondering about how you did later. Balancing carbs and blood sugar is like toying around with chemistry.

Birthday cakes are a dime a dozen anymore (keep repeating that to yourself til you believe it...I did, but not so sure I do. *snorts*). They do seem easier to pass up as time goes by, tho. But now I have this compulsion to motorboat one. Wonder why.

"motorboated"!
I spit water on my shirt when I read it.
