That's The Way The Cookie Crumbles

I just ate half a bag of cookies in one sitting.

My husband and I decided to buy ourselves a treat at the end of a very long and tiring day. We went home and played a couple of board games to unwind with the cookies in front of us on the table and the intention to just have a few each. And before we knew it the bag was empty! Although it was busy, my day was good. I am feeling a little anxious over a couple of things, but no emotions that are outside of my comfort zone are looming. Things are pretty good in my life right now.

I’m not sure where this came from. And I don’t know whether to feel sicker from the tummy ache I have given to myself or the fact that I inhaled that many cookies without thinking about it. I guess I will just chalk it up to an unusual happening, but also keep better tabs on myself. I can’t go back to those habits. I won’t.

It was wisely suggested to me to post my video on my sidebar, but I couldn't find a widget to do so. Instead I have posted a link that, once clicked, will bring up my entire anniversary post. Hopefully that works for everyone who is looking for it.

  1. From reading your post I realised maintainence is harder to do than losing weight! Take heart :) You will bounce back again.:)

  2. You can do this! Heck, you have already done this! Don't get discouraged!

  3. Here is a handy tute on how to embed a video in the sidebar:

    Keep up the good work! In the grand scheme of things though, there are worse things than a half bag of cookies :)

  4. Chalk it off and onward you go maintaining your healthy ways. Cookies are easy to crumble and defeat, don't let them defeat you.

  5. You know yourself, you won't go back to those habits. Move forward! You are an inspiration to someone like me who is just starting her journey!

  6. Life happens, tomorrow is a new day. I just watched you video. So amazing!!! I wish I had taken more pictures. You're absolutely beautiful!!! Congrats!!! Hugs!
