My first Blog.
I had my first blog all planned out. I was going to write it s from my families 4th of July get together today at Bass Lake. Our family has a place there as long as I have been alive. That cottage is my favorite place in the world. I have gone every summer to this cottage and I havenít missed many 4th of July gatherings either. But I missed today. Now I am crying for my missed opportunity. All because I wanted to sleep, and I didnít feel that great and I had a headache. All these excuses that got me nowhere!
Earlier this week I wasnít keen on going- just because. Because if was a hassle with my work schedule, getting there (it is about an hour away), I have so much to do around the house and I didnít want to be tempted by all the wonderful food.
Ha! Now that is stupid because I have temptation staring at me everyday I go to work.
I work at one of the best buffets I have ever been to. (While we donít have super fancy food everyday like prime rib and shrimp we do have a great selection of hundreds of different items every day). Yep thatís right HUNDREDS of items to choose from everyday. And I couldnít go to a family get together where there would be maybe 20 -30 different items. How chicken is that?? Was the food going to be better? Some of it may have been. The difference here was I could have a meal and then I could munch. And then munch some more. And I just wasnít up for the challenge.
So for my first blog I wanted to write from there saying I was being successful! That I took healthy food options and choose mainly healthy food options. I had planned on this being my one indulgence day for the week. I just wasnít going to go overboard in doing so.
Instead, I ran away from the challenge and missed seeing my wonderful extended family in the process.
My mom said earlier this week that I didnít want to miss it because you never know whether it will be the last time you might see some of these people again. Which is true a very true statement. But I really hate it because she is right so much of the time!
So I missed a great time with family. I didnít accomplish anything except for being mad at myself. Never again am I going to miss an opportunity where I know I would be happy.
