The call of cookies...

In some ways today went fabulously well. I had a spinach and berry smoothie (with soymilk and flax oil) for breakfast and saved the remainder in a mason jar for an afternoon snack. I ate breakfast really late, so I had 2 slices of gf toast with almond butter alongside the smoothie and called it lunch.

Steve and I went for a great walk. An hour and fifteen minutes in gently falling snow. The weather was perfect. Not too cold and no wind. On the way back home we stopped at his parents and had a cup of tea and a nice visit.

I made two pasta sauces for dinner; one vegan and one with ground beef. Lit candles at dinner and used the nice dishes. Steve chopped all the vegetables for the sauces and we did the dishes together. Nothing to complain about right?

Well then, SOMEONE brought out a box of cookies we had received at Christmas. They were calling my name. Actually, it was more of a SCREAM than a call!! There was no way I could resist.

President's Choice Belgian chocolate cookies.

No they aren't homemade but for the longest time they were my favourite cookie, bar none! So I succumbed...I promised myself that I would be brutally honest here about how I'm doing.

Public confession over :)
The cookies called my name and I answered. I ate 5...So before I eat more, I'm grabbing my cup of herbal tea and getting outta here!

Keep on keeping on

  1. So glad you had a better day yesterday. Sounds wonderful. I know I definatively have to change my diet too. I'm not sure what I'll do, but i'm going to a smaller plate! Good luck.
