I can't believe I did it

I cheated.  Yes, that's right.  I cheated!

What happened was this: 

It was Monday night, FHE you know (Family Home Evening) and we were going down to Santaquin to a park by my niece's house where the kids could play in the splash pad.  We were going to have dinner.  We were supposed to be there at 6 PM.

Well, I fell asleep on the couch and woke up at 6 PM.  We hurried down to the park, arriving at 6:30 PM.  I didn't bring my food because I don't eat usually until around 7 or 7:30 when I'm on this phase of the diet.  The kids started playing on the splash pad.  Everyone started eating.  I realized we were gonna be there for a while.  UGH!  I didn't have my food, and I was starving, having just woken up from my nap.  I had a few slices of tomato, 2 small meatballs, and a little bit of the pulled pork.  I was tempted to eat the roll too, but decided to be good.  Then they pulled out the cookies.  They were the Keebler cookies:  grasshoppers, striped cookies, and peanut butter cookies. 

I had a bite of the grasshopper.  It wasn't as good as I thought it would be.  Kind of reminded me of a Thin Mint (Girl Scout cookies), but not as good.  Then I had an entire peanut butter cookie (kind of like the GSA Tag-Alongs, only not as good).  I wanted another one badly, but I didn't eat it. 

The worst part about this story?  We left by 7 because Munchkin was freezing.  It was cold and windy and he was soaking wet and shivering.  We were home by 7:30.  Had I known, I totally wouldn't have cheated!  But, what's done is done.  I am resolved to be extra good today though, to make up for it.  I have my charitable organization meeting tonight, and they always eat dinner.  I am determined to not cheat tonight.  And possibly ever again.  But we'll see.

  1. Don't beat yourself up about it. Like you said, "what's done is done." At least now it's out of your system right? I know you'll do great today! PS> Today is only day 2 on protocol and I've been SOOOO tempted to cheat. UGGGGHHHH.
