Contentment: Taking a holiday, for a day

Sunday, April 04, 2010

It has been a lovely Easter Sunday. The sun was out, the weather warm, and we brought my son and daughter-in-law and their 4 mo. old baby to worship services with us, then back home to have a meal.
We came home and enjoyed a lovely turkey with lots of fresh veggies, a fresh fruit cup, and even enjoyed some goodies from the bunny.
I told myself I was not going to let enjoying the day ruin anything. I ate decent portions, enjoyed a rest and dessert day. When getting goodies ready for the kids, and for us, I divided up 1 bag of dark chocolate eggs, and 1 bag of malted eggs between 5 of us, and of course gave the youngsters a little more than that.
My son brought lemon merangue pie, and I ate a small slice. I also enjoyed my small bag of eggs with a glass of milk.
When I totaled my calories, yes it was over what I normally eat, but I figured it might be. I also planned that today would be an off day, and it would not hurt me to take a holiday, and enjoy it. Although my egg bag is empty, I am not searching for more. I have plenty more of a nice fruit cup to enjoy, and I really am content.
I spent lots of time holding and cooing with my grandson. I love to make him smile and see his dimples. I tired myself out with all the facial exercises, and rocking him. When the younger set decided to take him out in the stroller, I really was worn out and sat back to stretch my legs and unwind.
Tomorrow, I will be back to my typical lower caloric count, my workouts, etc. and really really really am quite content. It was a beautiful day.
If I were to spaz out for taking a day off, it wouldn't be worth the aggravation of beating myself up. Life is made up of lots of different kinds of days. Today was a day to relax the rules, and enjoy all things, in moderation.

    I am glad you had a good day. Isn't it nice to have a little something special and not pay for it or agonize over it for days? Keep up the good work. Have a great week!
