Why is it so much easier to blog when you're doing well? Me, not so well lately. It seems to me that I have had several "special" days in a row. Meaning...it's a special day, I don't need to be careful of what I'm eating today. It started with last week Wednesday and has continued daily.
Last Wednesday, little guy's first birthday. Had to have a "row" of brownies or he'd be made at me ;)
Last Thursday, day after little guy's birthday. Gotta eat another "row" of brownies or they'll continue to haunt me till they're gone.
Last Friday, my wife's teacher appreciation dinner. What a buffet of awesome Mexican food, not to mention the Pina Coloda's!
Saturday: family wedding. First time my extended family has seen me since May of 2007. I look a lot different, celebrate with a "few" pieces of dessert.
Sunday: sister's graduation. You only graduate from high school once, so I better have another "few" pieces of cake.
Monday: trip to the zoo. Field trip with the K4 and 2nd grade and it's hard to pack a healthy lunch to go to the zoo, I'm not counting points for that!
Tuesday/Today: Caryn's K4 graduation. Again, you only graduate from kindergarten...well, let's see...you ONLY graduate from K4 once.
I have found excuses to not count points or to splurge on cake/brownies/sweets daily since early last week. The madness will only continue if I allow it too. Today, will be a good day as I passed on all the K4 treats since I don't want everyday to be a special day because before long, I will need a special trip to the store to buy bigger pants!!
Excuses for eating is what got me to the point I needed help in the first place. Eating when no one was watching got me to the point I needed help. Portion control and not exercising got me to the point I needed help. Need to get back to the point of healthy eating and exercising quick!
I had a great day yesterday for the first time in a week and will try to build upon it for today.
