How horrible, what a disaster, OMG what did I do?
Over the weekend I started to slip and slide, before you know it I was in a full avalanche! My diligence went out the window and into the cupcakes and brownies and full list of other no-no's. Fewer and fewer veggies, more and more carbs. What a train wreck!
Yesterday started off well. I prepared saute' veggies, small amount of sweet potato and white potato cubes with pan-seared chicken breast with a light garlic and mushroom sauce. So what happened? I let myself get too hungry and my appetite became insatiable and I was tired. It was not pretty!
Why, you ask, did I do it? Too much temptation too soon and not paying attention. 1) A birthday party that I made the special cupcakes (Hello Kitty), Sloppy Jo's, (although I did bring a veggie tray to help with my temptation demons and did pass on the chips) and 2) the brownie cake balls I baked with dreams of making cake pops for my little cherubs for Valentine's Day...that went down the drain last night / early morning when I ate nearly ALL 36 of them without thinking. Hey me thinks me has a clue...WITHOUT THINKING.
I dread tomorrow when those darn brownies jump onto my scale. The weight I had worked so hard for will be down the tubes and for WHAT?? Some brownies that I really did not savor? For the fat slicked biscuits that I consumed and did not enjoy after the first one? For the sweet potato drowning in butter?? Oh, woe is me, what have I done?
Well whatever I have done, I need to un-do and press on!
Here is my answer to my food demons..."Resistance is futile" I will conquer them one day at a time!!
