A moment of weakness...

Damn you, peppermint patties! I was doing so well!

But, being a Cincinnatian, and having Skyline for lunch, it's tradition - second nature, even - to finish off with a York peppermint patty (one for 15 cents, two for 25, so you always go for 2...) or two.

I didn't even think about what I was doing. It was automatic. I bought my two patties, and scarfed them down without even thinking about the consequences of my actions.

That scares me. Especially since I've been so vigilant lately about what I've been eating.

Granted, an extra 140 calories isn't the end of the world, but it put me up to 900 calories for today, and it's only 1:15! And my weigh-in is tomorrow, and I just made it 140 calories harder for me to get to the 5 pound mark. I'm just disappointed, that's all.

Oh well. Move on, work it off. That's the plan.

I did that last night. I was so disappointed with myself. Today, there were fabulous looking cookies in the break room, but I thought, "You ate poorly last night. You need to make good choices right now," and walked away. You sort of have to face each challenge in individually. Hope things are going better for you!

Aw... well I bet that won't happen again eh? I understand what you mean though. It isn't that they have SO many calories, it is that you almost didn't choose to consume them.

Maybe the fact that this happened will make you more careful as you move forward. And remember, if you don't hit the 5 pound mark tomorrow it is not the end of the world. This is the 20/20 challenge not the 50/20 challenge! I know how it feels to have so far to go to get to your goal, but be grateful for every good choice you make.

Also, how do you put those buttons on the side of your blog?? I want the 20/20 one and the c25k one!
