Default Owning it, to let it go

Okay, so I didn't eat real good for breakfast.

DH, who is semi-retired, works part-time at Panera. He brings me home nice salads a couple of times a week, I'm grateful, as long as I swap out the dressing.
They have started making breakfast sandwiches, with sausage patties. And sometimes, he brings leftovers home. So he made up a bunch of biscuits, and put them in the frig, packaged with a sausage patty, and told me, they were special for me, cause he knows that I love McD's sausage biscuits. [What this sabotage is about, I'm not sure, and this isn't the point of the post.]
I thanked him, and have been carefully ignoring them, grabbing my plain fat free yogurt every morning.
But this AM, I decided that I would have 1. And I did. And it was good. If I have a lo-fat lunch (progresso minestrone) and a salad and veges for dinner, this won't kill me once in a while.
But, but, but ...
The office manager went to our local cider mill and got unpasteurized cider and fresh donuts. I stayed out of the break room for an hour, really I did. But I had to ...had to...
So good. Had I known, I would have skipped the biscuit.

So I'm going to walk for 15 mins at lunch today, and that workout that I was thinking of skipping (I have done cardio every day this week), is back on my plate.

I need to go on - and, in total, it was less than a turkey burger at Ruby Tuesdays'

This food thing is something else.

That wouldn't by any chance be Yates Cider Mill would it? (former Michigander)

Yep, acknowledge and move on sounds like the best way to deal with a lapse. We can't change the past, and dwelling on it surely isn't good for us.

So, how did the rest of your day go, Sue?

No, it would be Alber's in Manchester. I think that the Dexter mill is also non-pasteurized.

Well, the rest of the day didn't go so well, as family got pizza - Surprise, Mom, you don't have to think about dinner.

But Saturday was better.

Sunday lunch, which is usually light, was a big function, for another organization I belong to. So I also missed working out Sunday afternoon.
Sunday dinner was potato pancakes with homemade applesauce and a salad.
I'm up a pound, but this is the time to stop.
Today, I am on program. And I have a nice Panera salad for lunch.
Thanks for asking, DF - I wasn't going to say anything until I was perfect again, which may mean that I'd never post again!

I did manage to post everything in my FitDay, though, so I am getting more honest.

Sue

That was exactly why I stopped posting back in 2006....

I'm so pleased you didn't wait. Like your thread title says, own it and let it go.

My husband has done similar things in the past with bringing something home for me that isn't good for my diet but he knows I like. He never really realized that he was sabotaging me until I told him that although it was really sweet of him, it was making it hard for me to keep on track. He just thought he was being a good husband by bringing me something I like lol

We went to Franklin Cider Mill a few weeks ago. Talk about heaven in a cup! I just worked it into my exchange plan for the day I had Cider and a donut for lunch LOL
