I get it, I get it

Eh. That’s how I feel about my weekend at the Ronald. Not great, not terrible. Just…eh.

I definitely avoided the treats. The Girl Scouts came Saturday to bake (aren’t they sweet?). They made chocolate croissants, chocolate chip cookies, muffins and a caramel cake. And I managed to avoid them all.

Saturday at breakfast, I just had eggs and fruit salad, skipping the bacon, sausage and pancakes our volunteers made. And for pizza night last night, I ate the salad that was brought and had my own Lean Cuisine pizza. Not bad.

But Saturday, someone brought homemade chicken fried rice, egg rolls and this yummy Asian salad. I decided to eat it rather than one of my own frozen dinners. I even had two egg rolls. For dessert, I ate some of the frozen fruit sorbet that was brought. OK, that’s fat free and fruit-based and yummy, but still a little more sugar than I would have liked.

Yesterday I had a bit more of the chicken fried rice for lunch. That time I only ate one egg roll and just a little bit of the Asian slaw.

Oh, and did I mention I had a torrid affair with DC every single day this weekend? Even after I broke up with him? Yeah, like four Diet Cokes since Friday.

Today, I just feel a little blah. Compared to past times at the Ronald, I was great. But compared to the past few weeks, I was not so great.

Plus, this is the second time I’ve overeaten Chinese food. I don’t even really LIKE Chinese food. I’m wondering if part of my problem is that I tried so hard to avoid the obvious goodies that I just substituted them with a little too much dinner.

Ah well, this is another week. Yay for Mondays when our sins of the weekend can be washed clean.

The only good thing to come out of my Chinese overindulgence was my fortune, which came in the cookie I did not eat. It said (no lie):

"Healthy foods will keep you strong."

Yeah, I get it.

Wow - how cool is that fortune?? Mine have always said something like, "Pay attention to your closest friends" or "You will have many friends in this life..." That is crazy that your fortune said that! I think that learning to be moderate with something that has completely taken control of you in the past is a hard thing to learn and teach your body/mind to accept - but you are there - you are so much more aware of yourself, your body, your feelings - both emotional and physical - You're doing GREAT!!!!! I'm so happy for you and where you are in your journey. :)

DC, she's just not that into you. Stop trying to lure her back with your shiny silver can...
