DAY#10 - Special Occasions
Tomorrow night is my two youngest daughter's birthday party. And for the first time in my dieting history I am NOT going to follow my dieting rules. You see I am a bit obsessive compulsive when it comes to dieting. I tend to take my current diet rules and follow them to the letter of the law and if I make a mistake or trip up I freak out and quit.
This makes special occasions which involve food (and they all do) a mess. I can remember when I was nineteen I skipped our family Thanksgiving meal and hid out at a friends house all day cause I did not want to cheat. Crazy? YES! but it was what I needed to do at the time to survive.
Tomorrow, I am going to change that! I still feel like I will shy away from total gluttony but I plan on having some birthday cake & ice cream and not worrying about it. That is a hard concept for me to grasp and I am chuckling nervously as I write this. I mean it. I am not gonna sweat it!
Saturday will be a new day and I plan on hopping right back in to my good routine and continuing on my journey. If I can pull this off it will be a first in Brian history. I believe it is what I have to do to remain sane and if it works I plan on repeating it again next weekend for Easter!
