Let them eat cake!

Tonight is girl's night! By girl's night I mean me and Chad watching girl movies and gossiping. I am so excited!

In any case, last night I got a call from Chad. He was kind of distraught. He starts the conversation with, "I kind of have a huge problem. I got sent home..."

I thought he was going to say, "with chicken pox and girl's night is cancelled." Nope.

"with my mom's homemade cheesecake. And I have a feeling it is coming to girl's night."

At first it was a GULP kind of moment. I have heard that Bev's cheesecake is the best around. How could I possibly tell him no? Then I realized that he was warning me. He was allowing me a piece of cheesecake and giving me time to work it into my calories without making it a binge. Thank goodness for friends who are dieting too and who truly get it.

I don't have to say no. I just have to figure it into my calories for the day.

Now, I'm not naive...I know cheesecake isn't the best thing for me...however, I'm going to make it work into my day. I may be required to do a little extra cardio and I'm going to really have to pay attention to everything else I eat to cut back on carbs, but I have been doing really well this week and think I can handle this.

So, bring on my slice of cheesecake, cause I'm ready!!!

  1. Way to fit that into your day! Like I said, you can't give up food items that you love... if you deprive yourself your "diet" is never going to work! Obviously we can't eat cheesecake every day, but as long as we budget it into our daily meals, we can afford to splurge every so often! I'm proud of you for working it out so you can have a little splurge! Keep it up!
