We all have off days

I am surprised I have lasted as long as I have on this "diet".  Yesterday was my first day that was not entirely what it should have been.  The things they don't tell you after you have a baby...  Your cycle won't be regular for quite some time. My hormones still feel so totally out of whack.  I've been back on my birth control for 3 months and every time has had breakthrough bleeding.  I'm sort of over two week periods. Before Brie it was a short 4 dyas, I was so regular. I think that's how I knew I was pregnant so early. But now... Ugh, over this.  The bloat, the cramps, the irritability.

I self medicated with ice cream last night.  320 calorie for 1/2 cup ice cream!  I had about half a cup before I went to bed and woke up with a screaming headache and achey joints.  Geeze, coincidence?  I think not.

So back up on the wagon today.  I'm half way through this journey and ready to see a body I've never seen before. I'm really pleased with my progress and not ready to quit. It was just one evening and one serving of ice cream.  I'm sure there will be more, but right now, I've got work to do.

Hormones! Believe me I understand! Usually I could KILL for chocolate...

Men have NO clue do they?

You are correct - it was one serving not a disaster.

You shouldn't deny yourself the occasional treat, and Karen is right. I have no clue and don't want one.
