Sometimes.....Bread Happens

So I'm working crazy hours and eating all my meals out at the present time. There's not any choice in that.  And I've done a great job in selecting healthy meals - salads, salmon, avoiding the "extras" and bringing healthy snacks to work with me, etc. I'm not tracking the weight watchers points at all, but I think I'm right in the ballpark.  I have a pretty strong sense of what's "too much" these days, what are good choices and what are not so good choices.

Which brings me to last night's dinner.  I ordered a nice half roasted chicken with fingerling potatoes and grilled vegetables.  I was extra hungry so I thought a side salad would be good.  It was! What I didn't plan on was the extra bread plate they sent up with the meal.

I am a carb addict (this isn't speculation; history has proven this time and again.)  I have avoided bread like crazy for a few months.  I'll have an occasional wrap, or a whole grain bagel now and then, but for the most part, I get my carbs from vegetables, beans, etc.

The bread plate had warm bread and real butter.  IT WAS ALL DELICIOUS.  *sigh*  I had one, then another and then .... the plate was gone.  I want to feel bad, but I really don't.  I've been working my arse off for weeks both on this food and exercise plan and for my job.  Given the many other "bad" choices I could make each day (folks have brought in brownies and cookies etc. to work each day), I think I did okay.  This is a lifestyle change for the long haul.  I don't want to be perfect or "all or nothing" or "black and white."  I want to know it's okay to have those days, those moments where I just want what I want and that is part of the success formula.....allowing for the occasional departure for the norm.

Sometimes, bread happens.

And That's OKAY.

(Side note: I may do a little extra treadmill time this morning and try to burn one of thse buns off of one of my buns lol)

  1. Do you think they have a Carb Addicts Anonymous? I'm right there with you, my sister!

    You're doing an amazing job.



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.
