I went out this morning with the intention of buying two cupcakes for valentines day - one for me and one for DH. I get to the cupcake store and I am having a really hard time deciding which ones to get - there were so many and they are all so cute and tasty... Fifteen minutes later, I'm heading out the door with 12
Um... hello? Diet? Will power? Where did you go?
I get home and sheepishly show DH the cupcakes. He's happy - he likes cupcakes and he doesn't have as much weight to lose as I do. So, what the heck - I'm not going to throw perfectly good cupcakes away, and we dig in. One good thing about having cut back on the amount I've been eating over the past few months is that I really can't eat as much as I used to - two cupcakes was my limit.
Now comes the really stupid thing - I left the open box of cupcakes on the table and left them for a few minutes. I come back to find one of my cats with his head in the box, licking up all the tasty icing! This cat is diabetic - he definitely shouldn't be eating icing. It seems common sense and will power are in very short supply all around here!
Oh well, I've been pretty good about monitoring and limiting what I eat most days, so it's not really a big deal to fall off the wagon as long as I get right back on it. I'll just pedal a bit harder on my elliptical for the next week to work them off (one day for each cupcake).
