On Wednesday I ate over at my friend's house. I had brought a bok choy salad which I ate and then I ate about 3/8 of a quesadilla and then for dessert had two scoops of coffee ice cream in a waffle bowl...So supposedly that was my cheat (my allowable 10% off of program.) for the week. So what was the medium coffee Coolatta I had at Dunkin Donuts today??? I have no explanation and no excuse. It was out of line and I'm feeling really guilty about it. Guilty because it was so easy. And because I never even considered not having it.
I just got back from Walmart and two thrift stores with my friend. We donated some stuff to the thrift stores and we bought a few things. I got my daughter a hot hair curler system and for me I got three pair of shorts which are badly needed. I also got my daughter a pair of earrings.
At Walmart I got the fiberfill I needed to stuff my four bedroom pillows to go with my new bedspread (my reward for losing my first 25 lbs)...Today I paid for an online course to learn how to knit socks. So I got a skein of yarn and some elastic thread to make my first sample pair of socks. I'm excited (and nervous) about it.
So after spending all that money today, I realized that one of my sources for money is not going to be available this month. I also realized that I"d promised to take my husband out to dinner on Sunday for FAther's Day and I don't think I'm going to be able to afford it....RATS. I shouldn't have spent so much.
And I need to rein myself in in my eating. Perhaps I need to reread some of Dr Fuhrman's book to recenter myself and renew my commitment to nutratarian eating. I will do that today and also spend some time on his website. I need to geta grip on myself....before little excesses cause big slides in the wrong direction.
