Sheet cake and cupcakes and tuques - OH MY!!

Tuesday, December 22, 2009

Oh, Pam...I threw in the tuque for you LOL!!

So today was not a stellar eating day. I took the kiddos out for a Mexican lunch today, and my son's refried beans found their way to my mouth. Then tonight, we had a party for the special needs cheer team I help coach. We were to bring snacks to share. Well....I just knew there'd be crappy food galore, so I was a good little health conscious coach, and brought a fruit platter (I also sent one w/ my daughter to her cheer party). The parents all laughed that they *figured* I'd be the one to bring something healthy. They DID guilt trip me (they really didn't have to try very hard) to get me to eat 1/2 piece of some awesome sheet cake. Wowza. It was SO rich!! Perhaps that's what happens when you don't eat the stuff for so long...anyway...

At the end of the party, they had eaten every bit of my fruit!! So...I decided to go down and peruse my daughter's fruit plate...perhaps snag me some good stuff down there. Nope! All gone! I just find it funny how all the others brought sweets of every kind, and yet my healthful fruit platters were both picked clean : ) Woohoo!!

And...this is kinda cool...the head cheer coach got us coaches really cool hats...check me out!

and the back...hey...I'm a "coach"!!!!

Gosh...never thought I'd be a coach of anything!

My "plan" through the rest of the week is to enjoy family, eat wisely, and don't fret. I'm sure the scale will creep up a tad and I'm OK with that. I don't plan to go crazy and I have a lifetime of healthy eating to get back to goal. I'll get there...eventually :)

    Congrats Coach!!! I took a fruit bouquet to school last year for a birthday and it was LOVED! The kids were getting so sick of cupcakes and they were thrilled with the fruit! Just shows how much we determine what they eat. They do like the healthier choices when they are offered!

    You are so cute! Love the pic!
    I love this: "I have a lifetime of healthy eating to get back to goal." So true! I will remember that next tie I am beating myself up.
    YAY for fruit!! I will be serving that at my new year's dinner.

    ETA: What's a tuque? Must be some Canadian thing? Guess I should go ask Pam. :)

    HA! Looks like we are on the same cheerful wave length today! "Don't fret"... this is the time of year that everything can become a big stress factor IF YOU LET IT!
    So, let's stress less and enjoy life MORE!

    XOXO Sounds like you are already there, Babes! XOXO
    You've got the right mentality about Christmas goodies... enjoy them in moderation and deal with it later :) You know exactly what is required to make those changes that you desire!

    LOVE LOVE LOVE the toque! (that's how we Canadian's spell it, eh? LOL)
