Carb Day

12 Aug

I lead a sugar free life. I’ve touched on this before but, you see, carbohydrates are not my friends. I could post some pictures circa 2002 that would prove my point, but you’re just gonna have to take my word for it. They involve a white tube dress at my friend’s twenty-first birthday party, and, well, I just don’t want to go back there again. It was a dark and gloomy day when I saw myself in those pictures singing karaoke (isn’t that bad enough?) with that dress on. One would think that my friends would’ve said something. A simple, “Mandi, that dress doesn’t quite work with your thighs…let’s try something a little larger and in BLACK.” They didn’t, and if my mama weren’t reading this, I’d call them something ugly.

Moving on…since I’m a low carber, I tend to miss sugary, bread-y goodies. So, one day a month I eat whatever I want all day long. It’s known by my friends and family as “carb day” and it’s not something I take lightly. Specific plans are made for this day. I know what you’re thinking, and I care not. Yes, it’s a little odd…but if you hadn’t had sugar in six years (holy moly that’s my longest commitment!), you’d plan the darn day out, too.

Today, my friends, is a carb day. Here’s a gchat snippet to let you know how it’s going:

me: Confession. Today is carb day.
me: The Krispy Kreme “Hot Now” sign got me on the way into town. So, I got a dozen for my co-workers. Might as well make it carb day for everyone! Anyway, the confession. I’ve eaten three of them. 3 doughnuts, Mag. It’s 10:00am. This is not a good sign.
Meigs: oh lawd

    I was a witness to this carb day: Sonic Blizzard, Fries, Pancakes and Chinese Rice & dont forget the slice of cake from Publix for breakfast – I think you also baked cookies that same day too?

    Mandi you should write a book. I don't know anyone that has been this faithful to a diet. I still remember you and Austin peeing on sticks at 9A.

    That was Amy that posted under Jeff. How did that happen?

    Amy – I figured it was you, as I don't recall peeing on a stick in front of Jeff, but, it's WAY funnier that it says "Jeff."You saw me in said white dress, Ames. You know why I'm faithful! Iwasnotcute.
