The week was going pretty well - I was eating really good - vegie salads for lunch and small portions at dinner . . . that all stopped yesterday. It was one of my employees 15 yr. anniversary at the company and I said that I would bring in cheese cakes to celebrate her anniversary. It use to be that whenever there was an occasion to bring food to work - I could be counted on to bring cheese cake. But seriously I bet I haven't made a cheese cake in 5 years. Anyway - I made two cheese cakes, chocolate chip with oreo crust and lemon poppyseed. Since there are over 50 people I also bought a whipped cream frosting cake from a local "Favorite" bakery. OK - I know - I know - none of them were natural whole foods. But come on - who can deny that they are not delish.
I cut the cheese cakes into really really slim pieces - but I could still feel the effects of eating that sugar. So I fell off the bandwagon . . . . and Oh My Goodness - I was dragging yesterday afternoon and evening. And because I was in a meeting that ran long yesterday afternoon I missed my circuit training . . . . which I really needed. :-(
Got right back in the swing of things today. Ran this morning and back to eating the good stuff.
Isn't that the trick - you can't ALWAYS eat good (or at least I can't) - but you just have to get back to reality as soon as possible. OK - I will admit I am having a glass of wine as I type this. ;-)
We are expecting mid-40's for the next couple of days. Of course that would be great if I ran in the afternoon - but as a early morning runner I don't really get to enjoy those warm temps - but it sure makes the rest of the day more enjoyable.
Hope everyone has a great weekend.
