It's okay to indulge, just don't overindulge. Limit yourself to one plate, and fill half of it with non-starchy veggies, low-carb veggies.

Oh don't worry, I don't really do guilt. But I will admit that I sometimes feel a little disgusted with myself when I overindulge, and I figured I was going to do this since we were having our monthly potluck. I also figured I'd do my best to get back on track this weekend.

This morning while the chief potluck planner, the chief baker and I were sitting in our break shoe box together we were talking about what kind of themes we could have for potlucks for the rest of the year. We're thinking maybe some kind of barbecue themed potluck around the 4th of July, cold pasta salads in August, that sort of thing. I can see that I'm going to have more overindulgent days like today in my future...

There was much rejoicing!

It's okay to indulge without feeling any quilt. I love SP's flexibility. You can always get back on the road to healthful nutrition and find fulfillment.

If you believe you can you will! If you believe you can't you will not!

We had a potluck at work today. I took plates and napkins (because that's my specialty emoticon ) and we had guacamole, green chile, some kind of hot beans with a spicy sausage, and we made our own burritos. Oh, this wonderful Korean cucumber salad that one of our gals brought, too. We had a lot of fun and kind of ate ourselves silly. emoticon But instead of beating myself up over it, I'm going to put both feet firmly on the ground tomorrow and start over again with the good eating. emoticon

There was much rejoicing!

For me, I'm doing Cinco de Mayo this weekend, with homemade guacamole and spicy brownies. Today I'm having leftover homemade enchiladas from PRAXXUS' recipe on You Tube, homemade Spanish Rice, and Spicy Crock Pot Pinto Beans made from dried, after sundown. May 5th is also National Day of Prayer, and first priority with me. But I serve a God who loves celebrations; there is room for both.

Yes, it's celebrated in the US more than it is in Mexico - kind of like St. Patrick's Day and the Corned Beef they don't eat in Ireland, and the meat many don't eat during Lent, you know? Nevertheless, it's fun, and I love Mexican food, TOO MUCH, whether or authentic or Tex-Mex doesn't matter. Do you celebrate? If so how do you celebrate?
