My Conscious-Eating-Guardian-Angel Had To Go Into Overdrive

Today was a good food day.

Not good food in the sense of good choices. A good food day in the sense of YUMMY FOOD!

It was kind of like going down a water slide for me. I couldn't catch myself.

Here's what happened....

First, we had a potluck at work. Chicken, mashed sweet potatoes, soup, pea salad, broccoli salad, shrimp......

Then chicken, mashed sweet potatoes, pea salad, broccoli salad, hummus.....

And THAT was just lunch.

THEN, we had 8th grade girls' group. My friend Jen was our "guest speaker". She brought homemade strawberry cupcakes and all her decorating supplies because the girls wanted to learn how to decorate cakes.

My plan was to be mature and grown-up and professional and WATCH.

Here's some of the beautiful cupcakes.

But, I couldn't help myself. I've never gotten to play with decorating tools! IT WAS SO MUCH FUN!

Here's my cupcake:
Obviously, I'm not very skilled at it.

And, I have to be honest. That was my SECOND CUPCAKE. The first one went into my mouth so quickly I didn't get a picture of it.

Anyway, here's where my guardian angel came in. As the afternoon wore on, I decided to go to Happy Hour at DeColores after work for a couple of glasses of wine, salsa, probably some beans or tacos....

I actually had that horrible compulsive overeater thought of "Well, I've already screwed up the day."

But somehow, I didn't. Maybe it was Barb calling and asking if I wanted to go to Sonic. Maybe it was the fact that I have community theater rehearsal tonight. Maybe it was the fact that my jeans were killing me.

Whatever........ Barb and I went to my safe place (Subway) for a sandwich and Sonic for a diet soda.

I feel like my Conscious-Eating-Guardian-Angel caught me at the bottom of the water slide - right before I landed in the deep water.
