This wasn’t the week I had hoped for! Thursday night we had dinner at the Country Club. The food there is either not so good or amazing. I was hoping it was a not so good night but it was an amazing night. Dessert comes with dinner and I was prepared to skip. It was carrot cake and normally I don’t like carrot cake but I thought . . I’ll just taste the icing. I ate the whole thing . . even the raisins which I normally pick out and don’t touch! I had a Dr. Pepper. I had a Bloody Mary (two, in fact). I gained almost 3 pounds with ONE dinner!
Friday night we had another dinner that we had to attend. I did good though. Nothing but water to drink and a salad. I skipped the main meal which was pasta.
For the week, I ended up gaining 1.2 pounds. Those weeks will happen . . I just hope it doesn’t happen again for a very long time but . . Thanksgiving is coming. Oh, how I’m wanting a slice of pumpkin pie but if I make a whole pumpkin pie, you know what will happen. I think I’ll come up with something I can make with my home grown pumpkin – something a little sweet but not as sweet as pumpkin pie and with no crust and no whipped cream.
Ughh . . dieting during the holidays is not fun.
