I weighed this morning. It had been a while. Apparently.
During the season of Lent I gave up all sweets, allowing myself
some Greek yogurt with honey at night as a substitute for my
ice cream fix.
This reverent strategy helped me drop 12 pounds during the 40 days
Another 10 pounds was the goal.
A road trip to Tennessee for a family reunion with a lot of
Marianne's special trail mix along the way, country cookin'
and fast food stops (Because it's illegal to go to Tennessee
and not eat at a Krystal...) all contributed to my weighty
After I weighed this morning, I gave myself the talk that most
of us give ourselves at a time like that.
Out came the dumb bells and the kettle bell and the "Perfect Pushup"
thingies....I cranked out pushups, squats, curls and crunches. It was back
onboard the "Pain Train" baby, 'cause I was gonna get in shape today!!!
Lean proteins, veggies and lots of water were in order.
Then...........just minutes ago............I walked into the kitchen.
Marianne said, "I found a bunch of Oreo's that we forgot we had.
Now they're kinda stale...", as she shoved one of 'em into my mouth.
If Oreo's had been created in the Book of Genesis, I'm pretty sure
that Eve wouldn't have tempted Adam with a piece of fruit.
My brain shutdown. I was like a shark on a feeding frenzy.
Somehow I managed to pull myself together after a few minutes.
I had righted the ship. I was back on course.
But one burning question remained.
How does anyone forget they had Oreo's?????
