I have fallen

Uh oh, Piggies. I regret to report that I have fallen. I was riding along and then the proverbial bump appeared in the proverbial road. Did I navigate it with grace and aplomb? Hell no.

I am in San Antonio in a wonderful hotel located on the Riverwalk. I am attending a work convention. I did just fine this morning - fruit and a skinny chai latte. I did OK this afternoon - a bagel with jam. Not too bad. Not exactly avoiding 'The White,' but not a ton of calories either.

Then, around 4:30 I took a little walk along the river. The weather is beautiful here today. And, an outdoor cafe beckoned. It beckoned! What could I do? There was beckoning involved. Yes, I answered. I will not speak of my indulgences. They were not completely over the top but they did involve an 'r' word. Alas, my willpower broke down and I succumbed t the dark side (they really do have cookies).

No bother, as with all falls, one must get up and begin again without self flagellation (which sounds really horrible).

Having a rutabaga isn't all that bad, EB. I'm sure you'll have more willpower next time.

Confession is good for the soul.

I've never found that it does much for my fat ass, but it does clear the slate for Day One.

My temptations don't beckon so much as jump me from behind a rock.

It happens. I still have faith in you.

When I am off at conventions and such, the beckoning is usually just too strong... Any time out of routine is hard to keep on track.

Handily, those fancy-pants hotels usually have fancy-pants gyms... and what the heck else do I have to do at 4am when the hotel bed won't allow sleeping?

I imagine that your meanderings through the riverwalk helped to "offset" those extra few calories.

Don't beat yourself up EB. ENJOY your treat so that it will sustain you in other temptations and give you something to look forward to when you do decide to treat yourself.

Rice? Ravioli? Raisins" Rich Rabbit Ragu?


Oh, and don't knock self-flagellation until you've tried it. Burns gobs of calories, esp if you use those....wait. That's just TMI.

Late to the party, but supportin' all the same. R..the suspense is ripe.
