Simple Diet Journal #32 -- Make and Bake but don't Take the Chocolate Cake

Friday, January 04, 2013

Writing this to get myself fully ready and revved for the weekend challenge ahead of me.

On Sunday, my family has a big gathering for a birthday. I'm going to make a very special, very big, and very chocolate cake -- which will be fun and creative (one of my BLC 21 goals) -- but I don't think I have to elaborate on how that'll be a challenge. emoticon

So, tonight, as I get myself prepared to bake but not sample, sample, sample -- I decided to put it out there as a way to keep myself accountable. I've really been on a roll and I hate to have to divert at all when it's been such a strong season -- and knowing that I'll also need to make smart eating choices on Sunday at the actual event -- I just don't want to sacrifice 2 days that could take me 2 weeks to rectify (may not be quite like that -- but somehow it always feels so much easier and faster for pounds to go on then come off).

Writing here is a form of reinforcing my vision, my focus, determination, and my willpower -- among many other things. Tonight I write again for all those and cheer: emoticon

Smiles for you today!

Peace, Health, and Living Fully No Matter What . . .
