Today was another day in which I started the day really, really well diet-wise, and ended the day not-so-well. My father went on a camping trip, leaving Mom and me home alone. We are really excited about the whole thing.
So I did pretty well as far as eating- not entirely on diet because I did have a big bowl of lima beans and ham. As far as Atkins go, that's not good, but it was OK for me, because I love lima beans and they are considered a vegetable. And these were very good.
So far, OK, even if not fantastic.
Then my mother decided we would go to Taco Bell for lunch. I had three bean burritos sans onions. They were fantastic.
Then we went to the local market, and found plants for a quarter (Yay!! One more herb for my collection of kitchen herbs!!), and we got a lemon pudding cake and a pound cake. I've had three peices of the lemon pudding cake. It was very good, but I could taste the chemicals in it, so when this is gone, I don't think I'll want to buy another one. But we'll still have the pound cake to go through, and my mom's birthday is next week. After that, my mother solemnly assures me we are going to be strictly back on the diet. I hope so.
Honestly, I'm doing my exercising and I'm not eating anything in very much excess, so I'm sure I'll be alright. But I really don't want to keep doing this. Fortunately, after Mom's birthday, she and Dad are going out of town for her birthday for the weekend, so I can reboot next week after she leaves. I'll be fine, but I need to get myself back out of the 'treat' mode it's been in the last few weeks between MY brithday, Dad's birthday/Father's Day, and Mom's birthday. It will be good to get past this and get back where I want to be. Either way, I still am going to lose this weight.
