I woke up this morning still feeling crappy about the stupid cake last night. It’s kind of hard to explain exactly what the source of my irritation is … it actually has nothing to do with the points or the challenge. I guess I’m upset that I ate something that I didn’t even want to eat. I’m trying to just let it go and move on … but for some reason it’s really bugging me.
Anyway. Tonight was another birthday dinner, and to be on the safe side, I packed my own dinner (a big salad with tuna fish and black beans). I asked the hostess earlier in the day if she would mind if I brought my own food, and she said no — though she was cooking the dinner as part of my birthday celebration. Still, I knew that I’d be much happier sitting at the table enjoying my food and not having to worry about other ingredients or points etc.
There were a lot of questions about this ‘diet’ and what it involves and why I’m being so strict when I really don’t need to be … it was hard to explain the whole thing, but eventually I got there and I think my friends got it …
There was cake tonight too, but I didn’t have any. I’m glad everyone understood when I refused a piece. I guess it’ll take a bit longer for me to get the hang of this.
