Rewards Do Happen!!

Today was fantastic! After several days of food prep for a fund raiser at a bike ride, DH was adamant that bikers WANT cupcakes w/ thick frosting after a very tough 80 mile ride up/down steep mountain highways. So I "honored his opinion" by baking some. Today was my final temptation: Frosting the chocolate cupcakes. H-E-L-P!!! H-E-L-P!!!!
First I prepared a bowl of baby carrots & started eating them. I LOVE frosting, but I just can't put it in my mouth with half-chewed carrots. It's my only defense. Dozens of times I wiped up a spilled dab w/ my finger & sent it to my mouth. Then quickly detoured the frosting-coated finger to the soapy bowl in the sink. Whew...disaster averted!
I hauled all the goodies to the bake sale. Then hauled the cupcakes back home because no one wanted cup cakes. (!!!!!) They're sitting on the kitchen counter watching me with their beady little eyes to see how soon I'll succumb to their siren call.
Not tonight! I may go to bed early & lock the door so they can't attack me. And tomorrow at 7:30 am, I'm taking them to the Fire Department where they'll be devoured and have no power over me whatsoever.
Then, I renewed my driver's license. The clerk said, "Are you still 160# and 5'5"?" NO, I stated firmly. "139 pounds." She looked at the picture and said, You really have lost weight." Actually, I weighed more like 180 when the photo was taken...but I had lied that it was 160#....AS IF I fooled anyone...except me, of course.
Then I saw some friends I haven't seen for a while and received some nice comments. "Awwww, shucks......." I said, my heart pounding with joy!
Every day there are soooo many decisions, opportunities to cheat, no one cares if I don't exercise or don't do it with all my heart and soul. I am a weak person....and I really have to fight like a tiger to avoid these slippery slopes. I get tired of always being diligent and making the best choices.......
Then....along comes a GOLDEN day like today!
I hope your day is GOLDEN all day long! I mean Seriously Golden!!! Go for it!
