So 12 days in and it happened. This morning I knew I was going to my cousins baby shower tonight. The baby shower just so happens to be in the same town as my favorite chinese restaurant. Knowing what I was going face I just planned on going out to the chinese restaurant. I made sure that my breakfast and lunch were low calorie and hey I have been really good for 12 days! There really is not a healthy choice in a chinese restaurant so I just went ahead and ordered my favorite, the sweet and sour chicken combo meal. Oh lordy it tasted good! What do you want me to lie?
My mom is awesome she eats 1/2 of her meal and gets the other half to go. I don’t understand where she gets the power to do that…go mom! As she is putting her food into the to go container she looks at me and says “do you want to take that to go”? Um let me think about it for a minute…hell NO! I managed to polish off the rest of my meal and then gave her the last 2 spoonfuls of rice to add to her to go box. So officially I only ate 99% of my meal. I really wish I could say that this is the end of this story, but I am ashamed to say that it is not.
We went to the baby shower, the whole reason we were there in the first place. Who knew they were going to feed us there?! It was not on the invitation, you really should put that kind of information on an invitation. To be polite I decided to partake of goodies that were made for us guests. The last thing you want them to think is that we just ate a 2500 calorie chinese meal. So I got a plate, put some cucumbers, cauliflower, ranch dip, bread thing with creamy cheese, 2 cream puffs and a dessert bar on it. I did not want them to think I didn’t appreciate all the hard work they went to in preparing this wonderful food for us. Then I did what anybody who just ate a full chinese combo meal would do, I ate everything on the plate!
Yes I to fell off the wagon, but the difference is that I am getting back on right now! Normally this day would turn in to a full binging weekend and I will not let it happen this time. My dear dissapointed diet buddies, make me a promise. If I fall off the wagon again…just run me over!
