Family, Fun, and Food

Unfortunately for me everyone around me LOVES food as much as I do. I had great intentions of sticking to the healthy eating while we traveled this weekend. Great intentions. Does that count for anything? LOL. Temptation was EVERYwhere, seriously. The inlaws had a huge box of donuts including one stuffed with frosting. Are you kidding me? A donut filled with frosting and glazed with chocolate? It was soooooooooo good. I haven't had one like that since I was a kid. Next stop was my mom's and lunch was good and healthy but then there were the chocolate chip cookies fresh from the oven. They were made with Splenda and light butter but who are we kidding, they are still cookies. By far the worse meal of the day (health-wise) was dinner. My ex-brother in law and wife took us to a great Italian place. I was told their salads were really good but I couldn't resist. I got toasted ravioli in marinara with meatballs. Sooooo yummy. Bug guy wanted onion rings and I ate those too. It was bad, the whole day was bad. Today Peter Cottontail contributed to my demise. Baskets filled with chocolatey goodness while suffering from PMS.....need I say more?? I wish this whole thing were easier but it's not and I have some good days and then some bad days. This weekend I had two really bad days, ouch. I did get to enjoy the food with great company which I am grateful for.
