Still eating veges and my two fruits. Today has been especially difficult. Joey and I went to the regional farmer's market to fill up on more fruits and vegetables. Of course along the many aisles of green, there were samples of pie, granola, cheese, nuts. I did have 3 cocoa roasted almonds - they were super yummy. I was very proud to say that I did not taste the other samples or even ask for a taste of Joey's homemade, hot from the oil, donut.
The evening brought our annual Gingerbread House decorating that we have been doing every year for 7 years with another family. This was hard. I made another big salad for me to eat and share. Our friends brought pizza. Just a few hours earlier we were discussing what our favorite foods are - mine: pizza - of course. I smelled it a whole lot, but didn't have any. Leftovers are in the fridge - hope I don't sleep walk down to it tonight! Not that I have ever done that. Back to the Gingerbread Houses. Decorating them involves tons of candy, pretzels, cereal, frosting - all the good stuff. I didn't have a single taste. WOW - that was hard. What I wanted most was the starchy stuff - cereal, pretzels, etc. Phew, that's done and all the candy is gone. I feel like sometimes it's easier to not eat any of that stuff than to stop when I should and not overindulge.
So, one successful weekend day. I am hungry, but I just can't bring myself to have veges for an after dinner snack. I think I will stick with a cup of tea.
