Well, I didn't do so well yesterday with my challenge. I ate 2 cupcakes.
I was ok with it at first saying to myself, I'll just start over tomorrow but then my daughter saw me and got really mad. I have these sticky notes that I've placed on my calendar that I am marking off the days I've went without sugar and she grabbed that off and said, "You don't even deserve this!" And tore it in half. lol I'm sorry. I know it isn't funny but she's like my own little Bob or other personal trainer. A little harsh though, no? lol
It did make me feel bad because I asked her why she was so mad about it, and what she said really got me. She said, " I was so proud of you! I really thought you were gonna do it this time and then you just ate those cupcakes!" Yeesh! How's that for a guilt trip? I don't think it gets any worse than disappointing your child. It has lit a fire in me though and you better believe no white sugar will be touching these lips again for the next 30 days. Yep, gotta start over my countdown. It's hard. It's almost like quitting cigarettes. Well, I don't think it is that hard but it's similar. But just because I slipped up doesn't mean I have to quit. I'm just going to recommit and really do it this time. I want to make my daughter proud of me and show her that food doesn't control me! I can do this!
