I cheated again! Ugh! It wasn't pancakes or mac & cheese this time. Through hubby's work we were invited to a catered party downtown to watch the biggest fireworks fest in the Midwest. They had the yummiest food and not one drop of it fit into my protocol. Dang it! I had already eaten most of my daily allotment but I still lacked my veggies and fruit. So...I ate the salad. After tasting it though I realized it had an oily (yet yummy) vinaigrette. Did I stop after just one bite? That would be a big fat NO.
Since I'd already ruined the day I had some hummus, bread and maybe a few bites of chocolate chip cookie.
What I have learned from all of this? I have very little willpower and this is not easy!
Today I should be okay but tomorrow we have 4 parties and a parade. Monday we have a few more parties and more delicious food to tempt me. I've got to get my act in gear though. I have 5 full days in front of me with 3 non drop days. Then on to the maintenance phase. I have the option of extending my time. The minimum amount of time on the drops is 21 days but the max is 40 sooo...do I have the willpower?
