I know, I know. This seems to call for punishment. Perhaps a time out? Or maybe a spanking? A scolding? Perhaps separation from fruit/vegetables for a week? Now THAT would be punishment.
So many thing have happened in a single year so rather than recap, I figure I'll start fresh.
Anyway, Day 2.
Today should have been wonderful. Honest to apples!
Today's was B's birthday; I can't believe he's 18. We must be getting old. Well, atleast that's what all the parents seem to say :)
D made Apple Dutch Babies that I ruefully avoided so as to stick with my fresh and healthy plan. That plan worked until 7:46 this morning when I was faced with steamy, hot bagels from the best bagel shop in town and ooey, gooey, dare-i-say-seductive brownies made by a class mate. Let's just say my stand against trans fat most likely went down the tubes today.
I really shouldn't have eaten even 1 because we all know what that leads to...
a bag of apple chips
1/2 of a Veggie Grill Burger w/ onion rings (i know; it gets worse and worse)
1 Brown Shenko Pear (breakfast)
Fruit Salad (breakfast)
1 very unhappy body
I'm so sick of not sticking with my goal and not exercising control when I eat. This NEEDS to change. In fact, my intent for writing this post was to create a promise to myself (and to you guys..nonexistent as 'you' may be!). I will stick to my plan this time. There's no looking back now.
Plan for tonight:
As I mentioned before, today is B's birthday. We're planning on heading over to Riptide Sushi, a japanese sushi-fusion place with great decos and some decent food.
M made cheesecake for the post-dinner celebrations.
Unfortunately, eating more is the last thing that I want to do.
So as to not talk about myself the whole time, I leave you with a recipe for being such a good sport in scrolling through my pointless jabbering.
I originally made this recipe for my French class with my friend Joanna as a part of a project. The class was downright ridiculous (as in the teacher was usually medicated while teaching) but the recipe turned out delicious. As in B asked for seconds. Unless there is copious amounts of butter, that NEVER happens. In other words, consider this a *miracle* recipe.
