As most of you know, I recently became a part of the NutriSystem Nation. And while the food isn’t bad at all, I have cravings from time to time. Actually, from moment to moment. Second to second, really. Heck, I’ll just admit it. I hear food calling me during all of my waking moments. But NOTHING has been as bad as this past Saturday.
I was home all day. Eating my NS meals. Drinking my water. Running to the bathroom. A regular boring day, right? Well, long about 10am, a vision of a Cheesy Double Beef Burrito jumped into my head. It’s a DOUBLE portion of seasoned beef, loaded with warm nacho cheese and seasoned rice. It’s a WHOPPING 470 calories. I knew that I shouldn’t be thinking of the such, but I couldn’t shake it. I’m not sure why, as I’ve never had one before. It was just calling me. Loudly.
My husband is a great cheerleader. But he’s also great at nagging reminding me that I’m falling off of the wagon. So, I KNEW that I couldn’t share the craving. And, when he announced that he and my son were going for haircuts, I devised a plan. I would wait until he left for the barber, and scoot over to Taco Bell to feed my monkey. Except he wouldn’t leave. He watched television, he took a dip in the pool, he piddled and paddled around. I kept prodding and he kept saying that he was going, but he wouldn’t go. And that burrito KEPT calling me.
FINALLY, he left. I don’t even think he was out of the driveway before I was in my own car, headed to Taco Bell. I was doing the happy dance sitting in line at the drive through. When it was my turn, I ordered ONE Cheesy Double Beef Burrito in a giddy, singsong voice. And, like a flash, I was headed back home.
Once arriving at home, I decided that I should eat the burrito in the car, sitting in the driveway. That way, I reasoned to myself, I could just put the trash in the outside trash bin and there was NO chance of HIM finding it. Good thinking, Self. So, I carefully unwrapped my sinful treat. And I took a bite. THAT’S where it all went wrong.
When I bit it, my beloved burrito slid out of the other side of the paper wrapping. It hit my thigh and slid down my leg, leaving a trail that was both cheesy AND beefy. It slid down to my foot, with the cheesy beef creeping inside of my sneaker. It slid off of my shoe, and unto the light grey carpet on the floor. But that wasn’t the worst part.
The WORST part was that the whole thing surprised me SO MUCH that the ONE SINGLE SAVORY bite that was in my mouth, fell out and joined hias partner on the floor. That was the worst part. I picked up the whole gooey mess and deposited it all into the trash bin, including the sneakers, as they have seen better days, anyhow. Then I called my husband and confessed the whole thing.
I haven’t cheated or even thought of cheating since. In fact, I’m down 4 pounds. YAY!!!!
