Day Two Recap - I didn't suck. I wanted to so freakin bad.... but I didn't suck. I resisted the chocolate chip and sugar cookies that went from the cabinet to the top of the microwave. Why? I'm not sure. Maybe the other members of the household think they make the microwave look nicer. Maybe they think the little viney plant that sits on top of the microwave needed some friends. I didn't eat the cookies. I even managed to put the sugar cookies into another bag so they wouldn't go stale without licking them or my fingers.

The three containers of ice cream calling my name from the freezer every time I opened the door didn't win. I may have slammed the door a little more forcefully than other days but.. I didn't take a spoon and try to huddle in the freezer shoveling spoonfuls of ice cream into my mouth when no one was looking. I even managed to make fried chicken for the family with the crispy breaded outer yumminess and didn't eat any.

I think what helped was getting home and shoveling last nights taco mix and pepperjack cheese into my pie hole before going out to the barn to do chores. Granted.. I'm pretty sure I looked like a starving woman shoveling food into my mouth as fast as I could but.. it worked. And the best part is if you eat too much pepperjack cheese you have a reminder/warming device everytime you toot that you've already eaten for the night. Not that I did that... The new feed must have been making the cows make that new smell. Yup yup. Totally a cow fart. That's my story and I'm stickin to it and I don't feel guilty because I stayed on track.

I've heard of blaming it on the dog (a common ritual at my homestead) but blaming it on the cows? LOL!

Congrats on not sucking! I got sucked into a bag of See's chocolate chips the other day; luckily there wasn't much left before it happened (nothing left after).

Yea for not sucking!!! I didn't fair as well... dinner plans fell apart adn I did have one small glass of wine. Have to get some diet. I bought 2 bottles that are sweeter than I would normally drink to make into spritzers. It will cut down the carbs a bit. Eating first does help a lot. Even if you aren't really hungry but you know the other choice will have you ravonous after. The only ice cream in the house right now is sandwiches and not the skinny cow ones I love so not much trouble staying away. Now if I could the same about the other carbs. Today's a good day though. All planned and and made other than dinner so fingers crossed :-)

I found a list of lower carb/calorie wines online that led me to the sutter home website. They list the calories and carbs per glass of wine. Some of them aren't bad! Now I just have to remember if I like Sutter Home or not. Hmm... A shopping I will go. A shopping I will go.. High Ho a Merry O.. low carb drinking I will go.

sutter home zin isn't too bad... my low carb is vodka & diet... gets me in trouble though lol. I used to be a jack or capt & diet drinker but once I got down I cut anywhere I could. Now those are a treat lol. Shopping and drinking huh.... is that the plan if you can sneak out of work? You may need an overnight bag then!

I wonder if I'm coordinated enough to drink and shop at the same time. I went out to a margarita bar one year before xmas shopping and I ended up with 4 inch furry boots that I can't stand up in.... come to think of it I may need to leave the drinking until the shopping is done. lol Everyone will end up with something questionable if I drink and shop.

I wish I had a cow in my cubicle I could blame my smelly toots on. So gassy today. Must be all the beer last night.

Dang... I'm getting a cow for my dog. She always blames her tarts on me. You write the great journals. Well I guess I'll go load up on pepperjack cheese now.
