Old Habits Die Hard
These are the carb appliances that sit on my kitchen counter. That's two bread makers, a toaster and a rice cooker. I still use them to provide food for my family, but I'm trying hard to limit my carbohydrate intake.
Yesterday I didn't try hard enough. I bought treats for the student council my oldest daughter is on. I ended up eating the treats too (oatmeal cream pies and tootsie rolls -- in quantity). Sigh.
I'm not going to give up. I read/wrote too many quotes yesterday that said that despite my lapse, I only fail if I quit trying.
I learned that handling too many food temptations at once weakens my resolve. Next time I can plan ahead better and assign another mom to bring the treats. And if I do buy/make treats, I need to get one of my kids to hide them somewhere until the other family members come home. Yeah. That's what I'm going to do.
