So today we had a wedding shower. I forgot that since it was the first Tuesday in May it was also celebrating May birthday's. "Come on up Carrie", yep that was me being called to the front. No biggy. Back to my seat I go. I brought my Ipad with me thinking I would escape the food line for awhile (two counters full of yummy food) and go last. Nope, I wasn't thinking when I sat down and was near the food and near people who wanted all the honorees to go first. Fine, I went and got a little. Then I got a little more. And then a little more. WHOOPS!

Now I knew I was eating bad foods, I came to the conclusion I was overeating but I said to myself, "don't stress about the calories, you will get back on track". Which I did for I left to go do Zumba, came home to make a lite supper of chicken salad and then did my 10 min. spark video.

What did annoy me was when I realized I failed my no junk food challenge that I am doing with a spark friend. I totally forgot about this challenge. As I told my husband about this I realized I had not been on spark all day. I missed seeing my friends encouragement and reminder of our challenge.

Now, even though I was annoyed about this I did learn a valuable lesson. Soon after eating those sweets I found myself feeling tired and a headache. UGH! My immediate thoughts were those sweets I ate. I do believe I should continue to avoid those sweets and therefore plan to start my journey of no junk food again.

    Well, you are moving and you are moving in the right direction. Okay, you forgot for a few, then you ignored it for a few but you did learn something important and that's the bottom line. Sometimes, it takes some of us to go the extra mile to find the super neat thing laying on the trail. All trails are not flat and easy. Most are pretty hard so if anyone feels bad, it should not be you. It should only be the one that hasn't had the hard trail yet. They'll get to it soon and you'll be sailing along looking for the next rough spot, but armed with the knowledge of what you learned on this trail.

    Great job, Carrie, and do I pull the fact that it's your birthday some time this month out from between those lines? Come one, don't hide it. I want to wish you a happy, healthy birthday, too.

    Ok, emoticon just went on for me. Does sugar cause headaches/migranes? I guess they do. I just read a little on that now. I have had fewer migranes since I have been eating healthier.
