Despite all my determined talk, I let myself slip today. A bad thunderstorm passed through and left us with no power and we were bored and the trigger was an open box of chocolates that my son had.
The box is a little lighter now, plus I went ahead and ate other stuff that wasn't on my meal plan, like half a peanut butter sandwich that I didn't want, and a bite of an overripe banana. Then I drank a cup of melted ice cream from the freezer. Not cheat-worthy food by any means.
The whole time I was doing it, I was saying to myself, I'll get back on tomorrow. And I know that I will. But I wish I had just given myself permission to have part of a piece of candy instead of going through all that.
I'm feeling ashamed and I know that I acted against my own best interest.
At least the power is back on...
