I did have ONE punchki/paczki and accounted for it. I counted 10 points for it and I am glad that I had it because otherwise I would be have eaten tons of other stuff before finally giving into having one in the end anyway. That is something that I have struggled with and have finally realized works for me. If I just face the music and eat something I am craving or in this case, just plain want, I am much better off than if I try to avoid it. In the past, I would have settled for a cookie or a piece of chocolate just to go back a little while later to have the doughnut...and I probably wouldn't stop at one. I'd go back and eat more junk and look to see if there were any doughnuts left and if there were any left, I'd stop for another one. I was definitely thinking today and I am confident that I did the right thing and made the better choice. Had I avoided the punchki, I would have wanted it more and more.
Enjoy the picture, poor Alex saw his two sisters dressing up and decided he needed to join in. He marched right upstairs and brought this nightie to his mother and started pulling off his clothes. Oh dear! We can only hope this next one is a boy so Alex will not have to play "dress-up" any longer. Ultrasound was yesterday, but since my wife did not want to find out what is, I decided not to find out either. It was too tough to keep the secret from her and everyone else last time.
