I attempted to write this last night, but fell asleep cuddling the laptop instead! Ha! Anyway, I went out to karaoke with some friends last night. I had a few drinks (whiskey/diet. Did you know Whiskey has the lowest calorie content of any liquor? Only 55 cal/oz.) and had a great time. We sang, and giggled. I had noticed a menu, but ignored it. I had a moment of weakness and mentioned to my wife that I wanted whataburger after the bar. I had pretty much decided that that was what I was going to do. Leave the bar, and meet my wife for whataburger for her lunch at 2 am! Then another friend of mine showed up and ordered food. As I’m sure you know, bar food is never healthy. Even the “salad” is covered in greasy chicken and fattening dressing. Anyway, her starter showed up (chips and salsa) and while I was tempted (in my tipsyness) to partake in “just one” I refrained. WIN number one. But, then the rest of her food showed up. She had ordered a sampler. Quesadilla, potato boats, poor boy sandwich, sour cream, pico de gallo, everything fucking amazing. The moment it hit the table, my stomach started screaming in “hunger.” Every rationale in my head told me it was okay, it was just one night, I could afford to not get a gold star for one night, start again tomorrow Candace, you’ll be fine, you won’t even gain a pound, you worked out hard today and burned tons of calories. What I did next shocks me to my core. I reached over and GAVE MY FRIENDS A HUG AND LEFT THE BAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I went straight home and went to bed. I did NOT stop at Taco Bell. I did NOT binge on cereal or peanut butter sandwiches when I got home! I ABSTAINED!!!!!!!! WHAT??? WIN!!!!
I am so proud of myself for last night. So, I’m another day clean! Today is day 5!
