Healthy eating goes out the window

Eating healthy…was doing very well up until Sunday. Went to a lovely musical afternoon–and the woman sponsoring it, had donuts. Not ordinary donuts, which would have been bad enough, but large ones with pink icing. OMG!!! Cake donuts that weren’t deep fried (their only, ummm, saving grace???) but soft and light.

That evening at a friend’s place, there was maple syrup cake. OMG… so delicious.

And on Monday, birthday cake and strawberry pie and chocolate.

Think I’ve had a year’s worth of sugar and am now back on lettuce leaves and water. :blush:

Any one else who tosses healthy eating out the window?

Well, in those circumstances, it would just be rude not to, wouldn’t it? :rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl:

I remember a bumper sticker that read: Quit smoking. Exercise regularly. Eat healthy. Die anyway.

So, I think I’m going to have my cake and eat it… :smile:

Healthy eating means that you’re allowed to let go occasionally without beating yourself up about it.
We all need to let our hair down from time to time :slightly_smiling_face: :pie::wine_glass::fried_egg::innocent:

Today is the start of Lent. It’s an opportunity to purge yourself of unhealthy habits including food.

Yes!
Daily healthy eating should allow us to indulge occasionally when invited and enjoy without any guilt. :wink:

Smiling at the responses… I gave up thoughtless spending for Lent one time–that meant, no magazines, no books, or new clothes, shoes. I would go out for meals with friends or a movie. It made me very conscious of how much money I wasted and how fortunate I was to be in a position where I could do that.
