No Excuses, But.....

During my travels this weekend, I started strong and healthy and finished pretty weak.  I am cutting myself some slack. I saw friends who I haven't seen in nearly two years and visiting them is like visiting a personal chef.  When my friend G. gets cooking, it's an event and it's a treat to enjoy what he's made.  This morning it was Andouille Hash with Poached Eggs and Artisan Bread.    It was delicious.

 I'm sure it was way too many weight watchers points.  I didn't even try to calculate it. The eggs and orange slices weren't bad points-wise, the potatoes were probably fine, the sausage was a little high and one slice of whole grain bread wasn't terrible either.  In fact, I was planning on coming home and calculating and tracking it.  But something awful happened during the drive home.

I became possessed by a madwoman on a mission.  She took over the nearly 5 hour drive home and forced me to eat a dunkin' donut.  Which would have been bad enough, but the beeotch drove me to Arby's for lunch.  Somehow I managed to pass up the vanilla shake, so somewhere deep inside was the desire to regain control.

On the 'up' side, there were some beautiful sites along the drive home and my son and I got to enjoy a truly gorgeous, bright sunny day together.  I'm going to pick myself back up and keep going.  I have to remember that doing this twice in as many weeks is bad, yes, but not as bad as doing it every day which is how I used to roll.  No more friggen excuses going forward.  Somehow the scale keeps going down each week, but if I repeat today's bad choices, the scale will start rebelling.  And I'm not willing to let that happen.  

Below are some pics from the day.  The seagulls were catching food mid-air and it was just a lovely 50 degree day down in Virginia Beach, VA!  ♥♥♥

  1. hey Old Woman..haha. Im glad you enjoyed the time away. Due to diabetes, i have been told, do not deprive myself of sweets. because i will only crasve them more. So just eat them once in a while. and i dont crave them as much. u are eating "bad" foods may be best for you. indulge lightly once in a while. And it might be easier for you to make the right choices the rest of the time.
    Just A Thought, Rhonda

  2. :( oh carly.
    and that sad face is not because i'm disappointed in you. i'm not.
    the sad face is because i don't want YOU to be mad at you.

    i don't know you personally. . .but from everything i've gathered about you online, you really are a wonderful person, full of honesty, hope, and love.
    the sad face is because i'm afraid you're going to beat up on yourself now.

    you willing to make a pledge with me?

    I WILL NOT give up this amazing quit I have going just for the next 24 hours.
    I WILL hold onto it. No matter how bad I feel about what I've done, smoking is NOT an option.

    I'm so glad you were able to have fun with your old buddies!
    the weather looks just perfect in them photos of Chesapeake Bay! looks just stunning!

    remember, tommorow is the start of a new day! just because you had a rough day or 2. . .does NOT mean you need to continue to do so!
    I have so much respect for you!



Sorry to make you type in the "word verification" but I have been getting a ton of spammers lately. Just type in the word that you see and it should go through.
