You got it cupcake!

Thursday, January 24, 2013

So my boss comes back from DC and he brings us all theses cupcakes from Georgetown Cupcake, I cringe at the thought of saying no to a gift. I have been on so many diets in my life that limit food groups all that kept running through my mind was "You are going to gain back the 5lbs you lost!"

I avoid the box all day and as I was leaving he says....O, you have not eaten your cupcake. You have to try them they are the best in the world. I know may hand was shaking as I opened the box and staring back at me was these beautiful cupcakes.

I picked up one and placed it on a napkin and I must have stared at it for ten mins. I sat there and ate it slowly allowing myself to taste it and feel the texture. Normally I would have consumed it in two bites and been ready for a second and third. But I just enjoyed this one like a little treasured treat.

After I was done I swore I would not give it another thought, it was over and the cupcake was gone. When I was logging my food last night that little cupcake was still on my mind. But I did it!!! I managed to stay within my limits as a matter fact I was the closest I have ever been with all my numbers.

This morning the scales say I have lost another 1 lb despite my visit from TOM and that wonderful Georgetown Cupcake emoticon

Lesson for me was ...All things are allowed as long as I count them and we may not always be able to have our cake and eat it too but a little 200 cal cupcake is an okay treat as long as we count it and enjoy it for what it is worth.

    You definitely can add a cupcake to your day, just adjust in other areas. You did!

    Absolutely! Once a food is "forbidden", it becomes that much harder to resist. It's nice to know you can choose to have a treat as long as you track and keep it in moderation, isn't it?
