Mama’s Cafe San Francisco, CA. Photo by me. Amazing baked goods, huh?
Looks yummy, was yummy, and my mind went whirling down memory lane. Cake, cookies, brioche french toast, maple syrup, butter…..Oh my.
I’m in Week 6 of Weight Watchers, and I’ve been a good point-counting girl for the most part. It was a rough start, as I gained 3 pounds the first week I went on the program. I’m now down 8 (should be 11, but I grumble) pounds, and I find myself getting weak. My mind drifts to the baked goodies I love, more bread than sweet, but darn it! Sometimes a gal needs something sweet to keep her from going stir crazy.
I ate my carefully portioned chicken salad for lunch, and went about moving the uneaten lettuce around on my plate. There had to be something gooey, creamy and sweet in the house? Some sort of sugar jolt to keep me from grumbling about had to be hiding in the recesses of the pantry or fridge.
Wandering from the pantry to the fridge, I moved around the Almond Milk, the Kefir, and the bottles of water….and Ah HA! I found a canister of bliss. Creamed Cheese Frosting, just hiding back there, waiting to be rescued.
Checking it over, debating to taste the sweet creamy yumminess of the canister, I hesitated and put it back. Chastising myself for blowing my diet…..BUT! I quickly cut-that-shit-out and grabbed that can, ripped it open, and got myself a spoonful.
Not to get too greedy, I took my good, sweet time, enjoying that indulgence. It was totally worth it!!!!!
Today I’m grateful for weight loss, and I’m grateful for indulgences. Life is about balance, and not all about Chicken Salad, cabbage, or a number on a scale.
Enjoy LIFE! We only get one.
