Chapter 38, Day 51

Sunday, May 02, 2021

Journeying on ... yesterday was an A day.... not quite an A+. I took off some points because I was up til 11:30p and got hungry again and ate a serving of pretzels. My acknowledgement of this is not one of failure, but rather notating the day and any thing of significance for me to reflect on later. For example, I can look at my spark nutrition tracker, but that will not tell me what is beyond the obvious: I managed a dinner food event (always a challenge for me) and I was up 4.5 hours after dinner from a visit with family, and I got hungry again and broke my rule over evening snacking for a reason and not out of boredom.

Today, I have another food event to manage: a Sprinkle baby shower, for my grandson who will be born this month. The shower, a small gathering outside because of covid, will offer desserts. I know my daughter in law is bringing a fruit salad (Thank you!). My task will be to really limit myself on the rest with very small bites. When people offer their best in the way of cooking, I like to acknowledge and appreciate their handiwork and talents....life is a balancing act, always. And, usually when I start eating high sugar and fat, I have to manage cravings for a couple of days. I will deal with it.

When I am done baking my blueberry buckle, I will head out for a walk.

It's a great day for a great day!

    I also am awaiting a new Great-grandson on the 17th. New babies are always so much fun, just wish they lived closer.

    You did great Vicki, sometimes we just need something. Good to not think of that as a failure because it is not.
    Hope you had fun at the shower. Yes it is a great day for a great day.
