Sometimes we are doing so well and can't wait to share that with everyone who will listen.
Sometimes we are just plugging along...and perhaps don't say much one way or the other.
THEN there are the times when we just make bad choices..sometimes knowingly, sometimes not.
I have had an entire weekend of bad choices. I wish it would all just go away, but that won't happen, of course.
I work as a volunteer in the traffic department at the flood relief headquarters. I get there early, yesterday around 6:30 am...and stay all day, outside in the heat. I am glad to be there doing what I am asked to do BUT ....I sure didn't make good choices yesterday.
I ate a small breakfast before I left home..so I can take meds that require food...this is way earlier than my usual breakfast time. Yesterday, I forgot to grab some fruit...but figured I could get it at the worksite.
Instead...I had breakfast again!!!eggs, fruit ok...but a waffle? I didn't need ANY of that.
Lunch...turkey and apple sandwich..I skipped the chips. Drank water. OK so far..but then was handed a cookie package...and stupidly ate it first and THEN looked at the nutrition info. I KNOW better.
Dinner...salad, summer squash, a small serving of lasagna and a serving of bread pudding....all this served as a prepackaged meal. I ate it. Bread pudding? I don't make desserts at home any more so occasionally I indulge..but remember, had already had waffle, cookies and now this! BUT it got worse....
I complimented the head of the food department on the meals for the day. Someone said something about the bread pudding and Barbara said: "Let me tell you about the bread pudding! It was made with Krispy Kreme donuts! A large quantity had been donated for breakfast and they weren't getting eaten, more were coming Sunday...so what to do with all the donuts? We took sugar and added sugar!" (It was DELICIOUS!)
YIKES! Woe is me...for being such a dope! One splurge is bad enough...but three? in one day? AND that last one!!!!
No excuses. Not even all the heat *upper 90s) and humidity can excuse my choices.
SO, now we pick up, dust off and start a new week. No way I can undo what I did to myself. I can hardly believe I ate all that, but I guess so long as it is not a practice or regular splurge, I can live through it and proceed from there.
One GOOD thing...I drank LOTS of water all day long!!!
