I had a binge...
Tuesday, January 11, 2011
All was not happy in our household yesterday. My oldest daughter is a freshman in High School and her grades are just not too good. I will need to vent on this more in detail, but I'm not ready yet.
Anyway, I was angry all day over it. I was surprised at how much Mary's issue affected MY mood. I did, however, manage to keep it in check, foodwise, even when the middle kid, Kate-the-budding-pastry-chef, made delicious reverse choc chip cookies. I ate one and not a bite more.
But when everyone was home from work and school and clubs (around 8:30) they all gathered to rave about the cookies and were eating them like crazy. Did I feel left out? Heck, yes! So I thought, "Well, I have a bit of room to play in my calories today, so I will eat a few of the lower calorie treats!" and I did...eat the treats...the whole box.
I lucked out this time. No weight gain, but the experience really taught me the value of not losing it, while trying to lose it!
