Did you hear that?

What was that loud crash?

Oh yeah. That was me, falling off the wagon.

This was not a good week. I can make a lot of excuses for the bag of chocolate chips I almost finished, and the hershey kisses I ate,and the cupcakes + frosting, plus the McFlurry the other day – like oh the snow wasn’t plowed, I was stressed, I had to make cupcakes for the kids’ Valentine’s day party – but the truth is, I gave in.

The stuff was in my house, and I was too weak to resist. This is why I haven’t bought any sugary snacks in weeks – because I knew if it was here, I would eat it. I thought maybe since my cravings have subsided, that I would be safe. But when those receptacles for frosting – I mean cupcakes – were in my sight, smelling so sweet and tempting ┬ásugar-craving monster found its familiar place on its shoulder and picked up right where it left off.

I’m certainly not proud of this setback, but it is what it is. All I can do is put it behind me and start again.
