It was a carb kinda day!

Friday, March 14, 2014

Once a month I attend the home extension group that I belong to. there are quite a few chapters and the one I attend is filled with wonderful ladies of all ages and many have become my good friends over the years. We do crafts, community work, charity contributions, and teach each other various crafts, as well as use these talents to make baby hats, scarves and lap robes for people in hospitals. We also have coffee and cake or other sweet refreshments after the meetings. Due to health issues this past winter, I hadn't attended a meeting in over three months. Today I returned for a "penny auction" which was lots of fun, followed by refreshments, and of course, I indulged. Someone made peanut butter chocolate chunk cookies, and I really enjoyed them! plus one "other thing." emoticon I also brought home the cake I had purchased on the way there because they just had too much stuff on the table by the time I arrived. So my purchase is stored in the fridge along with the St. Patty's day dessert until Monday.
I'm writing this blog so I can publicly commit to not touching one crumb of the cakes in the fridge. I PROMISE!! and I can do it as long as it's no longer a secret!!
I did spend the rest of the day eating only veggies and protein so I feel as though it all balanced out okay. I guess all's well that ends well, and I have come to accept that one Friday morning a month I'm going to eat cake for lunch and the party ends there. I don't beat myself up for it anymore because the punishment is always drowning my sorrows in an extended carb binge. It's time to stop that and ENJOY the REALITY of cake in my life once in a while!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I really like the way you think through these things, Patty. Good for you! Sounds like a great plan and approach. ((Hugs))

    I have been known to put something down the garbage disposal to get it out of reach. I'm sure all those starving children in China were horrified, but at least I didn't end up eating it.
