Tempted by a White Truffle Ghost

Wednesday, October 16, 2013

Yesterday I fell off the wagon. Again.
I had a good plan on my trip to visit my mother. During my 3 hour drive, I would stay away from restaurants, and just eat the celery sticks in my lunch bag. I stopped off at the Peterborough Basket Shoppe instead. I bought some baskets for upcoming holidays, and then it happened. The clerk put a white truffle ghost in my bag. For some crazy reason, I did not hand it back. I fell to the sweet temptation. I opened up the package right there, and ate the thing. One minute on my lips. It was very, very sweet. Yes, I loved every moment.
I will not give up my goal of blood sugar below 110. Tomorrow, I will get up and eat healthy again. I wish that I did not need those sweet moments. I wish that I was stronger. Life goes on, and I ate good for the rest of the night.

    It's all been said. You enjoyed a 'forbidden fruit' and walked away from the temptation once the initial tease had passed.

You're doing fine!

    It just means the next temptation will be easier to avoid

    Everything in moderation. You didn't eat a dozen of them - you had ONE, and enjoyed it! A sweet now and then should be part of your plan so that you don't go completely overboard and eat a bag of Oreo's or a whole flock of truffle ghosts!

    I don't see why that is so devastating, I don't believe in cutting out anything, just go with moderation. Not worth beating yourself up over.

    A treat every once in awhile shouldn't hurt so don't beat yourself up over it.

    A truffle ghost every once in awhile won't hurt you in the long run. Just enjoy the moment and the sweet, sweet deliciousness.

    It sounds like you really enjoyed it. Make it last longer than one minute, though. I would've done the same thing. In fact, just reading about how much you enjoyed it satisfied my sweet tooth. (Not really, I'm trying to convince myself).

    I agree with SquirrelMomma1 - don't beat yourself up.

    Everything in moderation. You ate just one ghost right? And you don't do it every day. Don't beat yourself up over it. It was sweet and wonderful and probably really made your day. So long as you don't eat them all the time I don't see how having that one will wreck what you have been doing. It was just a treat and you recognise that.
