I always think of new months as a fresh start. I sometimes look forward to them eagerly.
Today, the first of the month, also coincided with the Sr. Discount Day at Kroger...I can't afford not to take advantage of 10% off all my groceries...so I was out the door by six am. Home by 8:30. BUT I had already, even after talking with myself about unhealthy choices, gotten a McDonald's chicken biscuit and diet coke. WHAT? I keep telling myself "never again" for they just are not as good as they used to be and they are terrible for us to eat...but every once in a while, I stupidly choose to go astray anyway. NOT an auspicious start. I have just about kicked the diet coke habit...but occasionally indulge in that when I am "out".
Ahhhh..but it gets worse. Unloading all the groceries...I "sampled" the small box of Belgian chocolate cookies that I got with a store coupon (DH never got any of these, but HE has no weight problems, so he can have treats like this now and then). Sample...nah. I ate the whole thing (four servings!) That on top of the stupid chicken biscuit AND diet coke.
I did get out and mow for an hour after all that. I probably won't be hungry till dinner. I have to wonder whatever possessed me to even want to eat that stuff...on my first day of a new month...when I was going to enjoy a fresh start.
Well, the damage is done. The "fresh start" starts NOW...at noon instead of in the morning. I may have started out stupid, but I don't have to stay there!
Hope everyone ELSE has a great fresh start this June 1st!
