Ya know how celebrities claim they forget to eat because they're so busy? I always thought that was a load of shit (kind of like when they say they stay in shape by "chasing their kids around") until now. Things have been mucho crazy lately. Sorry I'm leaving you in the dark as to what is going on, but until I decide whether I want to (or even should) share, I'm going to keep mum. Sor-ry, I hate that. An.Y.way.
Yesterday, it happened. I forgot to eat. Yes. I was at jury duty all day, which came at the worst possible time (don't postpone it, people!), and was working on a project on my laptop during every break—you get a lot of 'em. So I had a big egg puff topped with cheese and salsa with a coffee for breakfast, a slice of veggie pizza (I needed something quick!) for lunch and a pack of Snackwell cookies for a snack. When I got home from jury duty, I was working away at my desk and didn't even move from my chair until 9:30pm. That's when I realized Whoa! I forgot to eat dinner! Cooool. (Haha, kidding.) Since I had planned to go to bed at 11pm, I didn't want to have something too heavy, so I just ate the second half of a huge salad I had leftover in my fridge from dinner the night before.
The old Ellen would have done this yesterday, but I didn't. (Insert pat on back here.) Usually when I'm stressed I stuff my face because I dunno, I feel like I deserve a treat—or 10—when I'm losing my MIND. I had urges to cheat, but I ignored them and just focused on my work. I'll know to be better prepared today with snacks so I don't go so long without eating—I know it's not a healthy habit to get into!
Ohh and remember when I wrote about eating speed? This pic of Takeru Kobayashi reminded me of that. I liked writing that post!
Alright, gotta get a few more things done before I head back to jury duty. If I wasn't so darn busy right now, I think I'd actually enjoy it—it's pretty interesting.
So tell me: When's the last time you FORGOT to eat?
