So what do you do when you make your son his favorite meal, Fried Chicken, Mashed Potatoes, and Sliced Tomatoes, and Cole Slaw. Well if you are anything like me, you sit down and eat. I did exactly that. I just didn't eat very much. Then I brought out the cake I had made the night before. I was so proud of myself for not licking the spoon once. Turns out son doesn't like cake, didn't want to eat it or take it with him. So I decided to pack it up and take it to work and give it to my workmates, only by then I had started having a bad day. Cake + bad day = bad choices. So I ate a piece, I didn't even like it. I sulked around for awhile, talked to some friends then I decided to get up and work that cake off. Cake + 45 minutes aerobics = better day!!!
It wasn't the Birthday cake that defeated me (temporarily), it was the attitude.
Attitude check (was all I needed)..Birthdays happen every year...(note to self) next year don't make a cake.
