After announcing my plans to walk rather than consume the Devil's 100 calorie packs in multiples of two, I feel it only fair to admit that yes, I did walk, but I gave in to temptation after dinner instead. So now, my dilemma is still how to use these little morsels wisely. I know I should, I know I can, and yet I don't. And what really irks me is that the entire day I behave myself, make good choices, make healthy choices and then at 7:00 last night I'm almost to the finish line (bedtime at 10:30) and I break down. Darn it all!! Even having my "cheat" I still stayed within my caloric acceptable range, but I cannot stand the fact that I am acting so weak willed.
This morning, to reward myself for being such a weenie, I went out and got myself two new diet cookbooks. Naturally, the Biggest Loser Family Cookbook was one of them. I had the first cookbook from a few years ago and had just dusted it off. I have found several recipes in there that I have used, or am going to use, so why not expand my cookbook collection with their latest edition. Hubby Dearest has made reference, more than once, to the HUGE number of cookbooks I possess, so I'm sure he will be delighted that I've added two more. I DO have to admit I probably have more cookbooks than one person should own, but geez I actually read them.
Tomorrow, weather permitting, Hubby Dearest and I are going to walk to our favorite breakfast place. I'm hopeful the walk will wear off the breakfast I am planning on having. We go there every Sat. morning we're in town, and I always get one of the same three things. Lately, I have been trying to pick my breakfasts more carefully, so I sat down one day and added up the calories in each of my three favorites. If I "budget" lunch and dinner carefully, I can enjoy a lovely morning meal. Now that we can walk to and fro, I'll feel even better about my little indulgences. I think the walk is about 3 miles total.
Joy of joys!!! The golf course is open!! Now if my friends would just get off the couch and go out with me all would be right with the world. Next week is supposed to be rainy, but tomorrow might be a good bet. I'm absolutely sure I could talk Hubby Dearest into going out for 18 holes tomorrow. He's as crazy about golf as I am. Rain takes over until Thurs., so that may be my next opportunity to play again. Might hit balls on the range between rain drops.
Happy Weekend To All.
