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!
