Spoke too soon...

So the brownies got me tonight. I’ve been strict w my diet and on task for every meal. After a very rushed dinner and non-stop day, I was feeling antsy and irritated w my kids (another story altogether...)

I wandered into the kitchen and there they were...staring me in the face. Calling out “I taste SO good” and I caved. Had two w a cup of tea. They were good, but not worth it.

I never thought of myself as a particularly emotional eater, but I really AM - especially late at night when I’m worn out. I should just GO TO BED!!

In an odd way, I’m grateful for this. Tomorrow is a new day. Back in the saddle!

Great attitude, Jen! As my five year old says after a mistake or a tricky moment...."redo!". You're human. Kids are no joke. The beckoning of a quick serotonin hit in the form of brownies (or in my case frozen cookie dough balls!) is hard to resist. Downing a cold glass of water (with lemon) often does the trick for me when those cravings happen. I think most of the time I am thirsty! Anyway...redo! You've got this!

    That’s okay! You owned up to it, now move on. As parents we understand the frustrations.

      You've actually learned a bit about yourself through this process, so it was probably worth it for the self-awareness. Get crap food out of your house during training season (I know it's hard- I tell my niece that she may not deliver our Girl Scout cookie order until Uncle is off program).
      Abigail - I love the "redo". When I was on Kenzai Body, I coined the term "typo".

        You're only human Jennifer! The Lesson for today talks about an indulgence meal and what we learn about ourselves when we decide to take it. Looks like you may have experienced it early :) I find that when i have a desire for something sweet, a cup of apple cinnamon tea does the trick. It tastes just enough like apple pie to fool me into thinking I've had some!

          I am glad you enjoyed them, Jennifer! You gained some valuable insight and learned another Kenzai trick--get into bed if you cannot stay out of the kitchen. Two brownies will not undo your hard work until now, like you said, back in the saddle!!

              We learn when we make that mistake and that small trip can change our thought process. Good job on owning up and moving on!
