Christmas. New Year’s. Birthday. Wedding. Valentine’s. Easter. There’s always a reason to eat something with empty calories in it. For me, the gauntlet was Teacher Appreciation Week. My weakness is icing.
When I walked into the teachers’ lounge, this was staring me in the face saying, “I waited just for you!” I don’t know about you, but for me, cake is all about the frosting. I’ve seen some folks scrape off the good stuff and eat just the cake. I’m the other way around. Give me just the sweet stuff, and I’ll be happy.
I didn’t eat any cake last week. I didn’t eat any cookies, donuts, muffins, snicker doodles, or even fortune cookies.
I did crack one open, but I didn’t care for the fortune it gave me. I’m plotting my own destiny, here. Why do I need to take instructions from a cookie?
The point is, there will always be something in your path shouting, “Eat me!” There will forever be holidays, girl scouts with cookies, and even the random corner piece of cake staring you in the face. Decide today how you plan to deal with that monster when it rears its ugly head.
While I’m in the weight loss stage of things, when calories call, I’m letting them go to voice mail.
