Stayed focused even when tired

Thursday, January 05, 2012

It was hard to get up this morning. But I did anyway and went downstairs and walked 2miles with Leslie Sansone. It was good to only have one daycare girl today. It was quiet and I was able to relax some while she took a morning nap.

I struggled a little today. My daughter had made a Sopapilla Cheesecake last night for her Bible Study. There was some left over. I wanted to eat it so bad. I took one bite - then saw my goal book. So I spit it out. I need to stay focused!!

This afternoon, I added green strips onto a Poinsettia tablecloth. We had got a bigger dining room table about 5 years ago and this tablecloth just fit the top-- there was very little hangover. It has been a favorite Christmas tablecloth and I have wanted to make it bigger to be able to use it. I found a dark green fabric in my stash and believe it or not it was the EXACT length I needed. I added a 5" strip on the sides and a 10" strip on the ends.

    That's A lot of emoticon , Carrie! Good for you! I love trying new SP recipes and really encourage you on that goal! Very few we've tried were not really good! Love the SP Recipes ap for my iPad! Easy to read and keep favorites right on hand!

    God will make a way of escape from temptation, even if it is spitting out the dessert. You did great!

    Love that fact that you listened to your "good at making wise choices" voice and actually spit the cake out! Score One Big One for Carrie!
