Maybe I have just been to busy to properly plan my meals. Yesterday was my daughter's 2nd birthday. We had a small party for her at the house. It was so nice!
Mimi brought candy!
Unfortunately I was able to relax so much that I ate way to much food. I made this wonderful dip with 2% Velveeta cheese, salsa and lean hamburger. You microwave, stir and then eat it with Tostitoes. It was so, so good. I think I ate half of the bowl myself. I wish my body would just tell me when to stop or should I say that I would listen to my body when it tells me when to stop.
It gets worse. I then had cake and ice cream. My friend made Makayla this absolutely adorable cake. I love how bright it is and it tasted as good as it looked. It tasted so good that I woke up this morning and ate it for breakfast. :( I think I am just sabotaging myself. I think some good sleep would really help this binge. As soon as I am done typing this post I am going right up to bed. I am exhausted from this week.

I did do well part of today. My daughter's school had a Mother's Tea and of course they had tons of cookies and muffins. I ate one mini lemon poppy seed muffin and one very small peanut butter cookie. I probably didn't eat them much because I'm sure I was still full from breakfast (cake). I did have a wonderful time watching my daughter act like a big girl with the rest of her Pre-Kindergarten class. She did a great job and had so much fun showing me everything she has learned.

We then spent the afternoon at a friends house having a little cookout/play date. It was so much fun but I got a little sun burned. At least I remembered to put sunscreen on the kids.
My friend made me the best burgers for lunch. They were Don Lee Farms Veggie Patties that she found at Costco. They were huge and only 3 or 4 WW P's. The best part was that they tasted like a giant potato pancake. So, so good. I wish I had a Cosco around here. If you have one near you I would highly recommend trying them out.
After the play date we went to my daughter's soccer game and then home for leftovers. I had a veggie burger, a hot dog, broccoli salad, pasta salad, and macaroni salad. I need to stay away from that stuff. I know it is all way to fattening.
Tomorrow I am going to make the effort to watch what I eat, drink a lot of water and even get in some exercise. No more excuses!
Do you ever have busy weeks when you just can't get your act together and eat healthy? How do you get yourself back on track?
