One time, when we were discussing dieting, many of you told me it was GOOD to have days where you take a break from your diet. And that day? That you told me that? I ignored you because it is not good for ME to take breaks from my diet because ONE day becomes ONE week and the next thing I know I’m back where I started.
Well, I choose to retroactively take your advice and apply it to YESTERDAY. Can I do that?
After the whole seven-donut incident, I toyed with the idea of taking some of your advice to eat low cal/negative point foods the rest of the day so that my morning break from my diet wouldn’t actually have too much of an impact in terms of calories for the whole day. I TOYED with that idea. And then I through it out the window, retrieved the take-a-break-from-your-diet advice from last week, and went to eat more Mexican food for dinner than legally should be allowed. The bean dip! The burritos! The cheese enchiladas! The bean tostadas! All. So. Delicious. And. Not. Part. Of. My. Diet.
And yes, I had dessert too. Sopapillas anyone? With ice cream?
Now. I am seriously going to try NOT to let my one day break turn into one WEEK like it has done in the past. Today? Back on the diet. No donuts. No re-fried beans. No cupcakes. (Yes, I ate a cupcake yesterday too. When I binge – I BINGE.) Wish me luck. May the force be with me and everyone else who cheated yesterday.
