Day 65, 66 & 67

Yesterday I started out with the proper intentions.  I ate a qualifying breakfast.  Then I got to work.  I cut apples for the kids and, of course, had to try a piece to make sure they were good.  Boy, were they ever.  I continued to eat enough other pieces to equal an entire apple.  Since I'd already ruined the diet that day I used the typical excuse of, "Well, I already blew my diet so I may as well eat some more!"  I proceeded to have a piece of cornbread and some tuna salad (with ELBOW NOODLES, nonetheless) for lunch.  I won't go into the gory details of what I ate the rest of the evening... So imagine my surprise, and shortly after, angst, to discover that the scale finally moved again that night when I weighed myself.  I berated myself for having strayed.  (But only for a few minutes.)  I swear, that morning I had weighed myself and found that the scale still hadn't budged from the last weigh in!  Even more surprising than that couple of pounds dropping?  I looked forward to returning to low-carb and sugar-free this morning.  There's something about a cheat day that feels so out of control to me that by the end of the day I begin to look forward to going back to... dare I say this... normal.

Breakfast> scrambled eggs, bacon, 1/4c mashed potatoes fried as a patty, hot chocolate (s/c=2/1)

Total s/c for today - 15/6
