Yes, I have been a slacker this week. I have let my crazy weekend eating run over into my weekday eating. Every morning I start out good, but by the end of the day, I have blown it.
Monday, I did not keep track of all my food. I went to Chili's for lunch with my cousin. Can we say molten lava cake? I did manage to get my water entered. And I did get my walking in. I always feel better after a walk.
Tuesday, I entered my food and did my strength training, but we had our Cub Scout Blue and Gold banquet and there was Chinese food. I love Chinese food. So I blew my calories.
Today, I was determined. I had my cereal for breakfast. I took the kids to school all bundled up because it is COLD today. I came home and started baking a cake for a birthday present (Chocolate with yummy homemade chocolate frosting), but I was not going to have any because it was going to someone else! I had a yogurt and pecans for morning snack. Then, I get a call from my daughter's Life Science teacher. She has not turned in homework for 2 weeks! YIKES! My brain screams, "WHERE IS THE CHOCOLATE!" I look at the cake. Thank God it was not finished or I would have eaten the whole thing! I call my husband, we have a little pow wow and I calm down (not all the way). My first instinct was to go right up to school, yank her out of class and take her phone(aka her life line) and yell at the top of my lungs (you gotta love the red head way of handling things!) But I did not. I am playing it cool. We are after all going to Disney this weekend. I don't want to have a yucky weekend because of this. She may wind up going to school on Friday while Daddy, Nick and I have fun at Disney. But we will determine that with our talk this evening. Anyway, I had my tuna sandwich for lunch. I was perfectly fine. I finished the cake. Took it over to my friends house and waited for My darling child to get off the bus. Still trying to maintain my cool. You know, give her the opportunity to fess up before I start screaming. Actually, my hubby asked me to remain calm and wait til he gets home to talk about the phone call. So I ask her what she has for homework tonight (seeing if I get the spill). "Just math" she tells me. My head starts pounding. So I ask again, "You don't have ANY other homework? Are you sure?" She is ADD, so sometimes it helps to ask more than once. She still tells me only math! Well, when I make cakes, I always level them and save the scraps for the kids. We got home and those scraps were mine! Along with some leftover frosting. Now I have a sugar and aggravation headache!
I thought I would go ahead and type out everything so maybe I will be a little more calm when we have our talk. We are so looking forward to Disney this weekend and I don't want this to be a cloud over it.
Needless to say, I will not be tracking my food this weekend. I am going to have a great weekend (food and all) and come back on Monday with a renewed spirit and ready to tackle my food style changes. 133 here I come!
