Walk Away from the Chocolate Cupcake

Friday I was determined to get my regular life back, so I went to 6:30 yoga, 9:00 KB, prepared my food for the day, and went to work. I had a lunch break between clients at 2:45 and decided to eat my salad. I accidently dropped my salad while taking the lid off of the container and spilled about 75% of it on the floor! Bummer! Even though my salads are huge I knew it wasn't going to be enough to hold me until my dinner break. So I went to heat up my soup and when I went into the kitchen at work to use the microwave, I walked head on into a potluck! Free food!

I guess it could of been my lucky day since I had just dropped my lunch on the floor! Most of the food didn't even tempt me. But there was this tray of muffin size frosted chocolate cupcakes. Cake I can resist, but frosting! Now that was challenging. So as I sat waiting for my soup to heat up the mental debate started in my head.

I thought to myself, "if you can walk away from the chocolate cupcake, you can walk away from anything!" To make a long story short I ate the cupcake! After all I justified it by asking myself "how skinny do you need to be?" What does all of this mean? It doesn't matter. Just my thoughts!

Tracy..there is NO WAY I could have walked away from that cupcake either!

You more than make up for it with some of those workouts you've been doing, I am humbled by your tenacity.

Tom, thanks for supportive comment. I think it's time for me to lighten up a bit!

I would have eaten the cupcake, too. ;) I think your snatch test and WOs took care of it, though!
