The War of the Frostingposted @7:47am ET on September 27, 2011
Sometimes things do not go as planned. Sometimes choices are made on impulse and are not thought through. An example of this is “Me vs. the Can of Frosting.” Things were going along well for me yesterday. I drank a smoothie for breakfast. I went to the store as planned and made some asparagus for lunch. (This was very yummy. I sprinkled some olive oil on a bunch of asparagus that was spread out on a baking sheet. I baked for 10 min on 405. I took it out and sprinkled some shredded romano and parmigiano reggiano cheese on to and baked for another few minutes.) I also had some hummus chips and a yogurt. Then I decided to make some homemade sauce for dinner. I opened up the spice cabinet to get a bay leaf, and there it was… an entire can of frosting that I had forgotten about. I was able to leave it there for a while, but the frosting continued to lure me in. After a while I began to get hungry and instead of grabbing a handful of baby carrots that I had placed nicely in individual baggies for occasions such as this, I grabbed the frosting. I will spare the gory details, but let’s just say there was a spoon involved and a sugar hang over a little while after. Now normally this would have set off a chain of events that would have continued throughout the rest of the day. However, this time I thought, "no it will end here!" I had this wonderful, healthy sauce for dinner and I was not going to ruin it continuing down this slippery frosting slope.
So I messed up. So sometimes things do not go as planned. So what? I had a nice dinner with my family with the sauce I made and over some angel hair pasta plus. I didn’t let that slip up ruin my day. I moved on. I do plan to make this a lifestyle change and not a diet, so I will have slip ups. The key for me will be to move on and not throw my hands up and say “well, I have already ruined my day, so I may as well have some cookies too!” The frosting taught me that. So thank you, frosting for a lesson learned.
Bring it on day 2!
