Ok, what a difference a day makes. Two days ago some friends wanted us to go to dinner. I said fine as long as we can go somewhere that I can eat healthy. We picked a restaurant, I made a plan, stayed within my calorie allowance and all was right with the world.
Last night however, friends came over to watch the game and we had hamburgers. That's fine, but I ate the chips; still not too bad (I only had a few, still within my calorie allowance).
BUT THEN: I made a cobbler for my friends STILL ok cause I made a small one and had a tiny bit STILL WITHIN MY LIMITS but then came the ice cream, a piece of cake that my daughter made and ... it all went to hell! Things began to snowball out of control.
Part of the problem was sending my honey to get ice cream for the cobbler. I had intended for him to get a small container, but being a man he got the 5 gallon vat because it was only 25 cents more. Surprise, surprise ... he's skinny. Always has been; always will be. He doesn't understand get only what you need. AND HE GOT COOKIES AND CREAM! I LOVE COOKIES AND CREAM! IT'S LIKE FREAKIN....KRYPTONITE!!!!!
Anyway, I sent my daughter to the store for ice. She came home with cake mix. UGH!!!!
So this is what I have learned.
1. I have a serious problem with food!
2. Having a plan works.
3. Having a plan only works if you STICK TO THE PLAN!!
4. Never send your skinny husband to the store for ANYTHING!
5. Teenagers will try to avoid ever being asked to go to the store for you anymore if they
bring home what you asked for PLUS cake mix!
6. Next time you make a dessert....forget the ice cream .... use the ff/sf cool whip!!!!
Lesson Learned. Climbing back on the wagon.
