It Just Jumped In My Mouth

Tuesday, November 13, 2012

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 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 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 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 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 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.

    This story reminds me of something our grandson said. Sitting in the back seat with a bag of candy (who could resist!), he insisted it was his hands' fault. He just couldn't control them! Before he knew it, they'd gotten into the candy and... it was just too late. LOL!

    With me, right now, it's video games on the computer. After vowing to break myself of the habit, yesterday I sat down to enter SP stats and.... checked into one of my favorite games. Whoops!

    Thanks for your encouragement on the "Aha" thread.

    Don't sweat it JoDee... you have the right attitude. Leave the past in the past! Lets work on the future... One piece of cake is not the end of the world! You'll do fine my friend!

    You've got the right attitude JoDee ... and it was only a small piece within your range ... and it won't be your last. You're on the right track again and

    Wow, it is easy to slip when we are distracted by other things. Hope you get through the holiday season well. It is great that you had the rest of the day planned out so well. emoticon
