Okay. It’s time for a little truth.
If you know me at all, you might have picked up that I have a problem with consistency. I can never stay at any one thing too long. Even homeschooling – I am constantly changing curriculum and/or methods. So, when I started THM, I was thrilled because there are sooooo many amazing dishes that I knew I would never get bored.
And I still haven’t. However….
Yesterday was my birthday. I hate birthdays. It’s always a time to reflect and realize that you are getting older and still haven’t done half of the things you thought you would have accomplished by this time in your life. This year wasn’t quite so dramatic. I’m in a pretty good place. I even made the yummy Chocolate Zucchini Cake so I could still celebrate with birthday cake and not be tempted.
Except when I made it this time, it was horrible. As in, so bad that I threw the entire thing out. And I had made a double batch. UGH!!
So I went out to get a couple ingredients for a back up. While I was out, I got a phone call. It was depressing. And then I drove by the bakery that recently opened. The one that has the most amazing brownies ever. And they support autism. How could I not go?!
From there, everything just went downhill. And honestly, the brownies were too sweet anyway. But then I went out for my birthday dinner. I had fries. And regular sweet tea. And even though I asked for my sandwich to be without a bun, they gave me one. And I ate half of it.
So… from last week, I gained .8. Oh well. It happens. I started back today. I’ll do better. It would have been less tempting to get off plan but I had started plateauing.
On a somewhat positive note – I did finally do some exercise. I did the instructional video of the T-Tapp. And OH. My. Word. My knees hurt. I thought maybe I was doing it wrong. The next day my thighs and butt were sore. I guess maybe I was doing something right.
I’ll try it again.
