OK so things started off great last week. I made Caitlin pancakes on her birthday with whipped cream, strawberries, and syrup. I didn't have any. That is a big accomplishment for me since I love anything sweet and you don't great much sweeter than pancakes and syrup. Well it all went down hill on Friday when I was super busy cooking and cleaning for the kids dual birthday party. I snack too much when I'm stressed. And making a birthday cake is too much temptation for me.
One of my big problems is when I fall off the eating right wagon I give up and say I might as well have that ice cream too since I already screwed up. Well I'm back on the eating right routine for now anyway. I'm trying the South Beach Diet. The first two weeks are a little brutal but giving up the carbs for two weeks helps to reduce cravings. And the jump start on the weight loss is motivational too. Wish me luck.
