I swear that is what happened last night with a piece of chocolate cake. I had decided on Sunday, that my eating needs to be got back under control. I feel yucky and tired and just plain blah! I know I've been veering off the beatin path and haven't been taking my vitamins either...so Monday morning, i set myself up to succeed...i packed a healthy breakfast with all my vitamins, a healthy measured out snack and a lunch that was yummy and fit right into my plan...and I had a dinner planned to get me right at all my goals. So imagine my surprise when i get home and found out i didn't have 1 of the main ingredients for dinner...no biggie... i found something else that would be quick and even more nutritional than what i had planned on to begin with...thumbs up and high fiving myself all the way...so i'm cooking dinner, talking on the phone with dd1 and cleaning up some things... life is going along and i looked down to find a piece of cake missing from the cake i brought home the night before and the offending fork in my own hand...what???!!! i stop.. i lick my lips...yep, that was me that did that...without even thinking twice, it was down my throat and on it's way to my tummy... i told my son to hurry up and eat the darned cake and get it out of the house...lol. In all reality, they were cut small, and after doing the math, i stayed within my limits..just the upper part...wohoo!!! i didn't fail...but i also realize that i am the baker of the family, and as such and with all the extra baking that is going to be going to the next 2 months, i am going to have to be more mindful of what goes through these lips...rule 1 is leftovers are not to come home with me! rule 2 is leftovers are not to come home with me...lol. Today is another day, i may slip, i may not... but either way, it will be recorded and accounted for and I will deal with the good or the bad...i will learn from it and i will move forward.
