Cheated on my Diet

January 24th, 2006 at 01:39 pm

Argggh, I'm sick-ish. I have a sore throat, slight fever and a sore back. I've tried some of the home remedies but what has always worked best for a sore throat for me is a soda. I think it's the sodium and fizzy (I think the fizzy overstimulates the nerve endings and then it just feels like it doesn't hurt as much - but it's just a theory).

So, I spent 65 cents on a can of Dr Pepper. And I did feel better for 4 hours. Until I picked up my kids and had to start raising my voice to be heard over their bickering. It might be psychosomatic, but hey, whatever works. Too bad it was so expensive though.

DH has to work late tonight so me and the boys will do a pickup meal. I have some pizza leftover from their treat which will be great for them. For myself, I'll probably have refried beans with chili and cheese.

Confession - DH does almost all the cooking. I rarely, if ever cook. I hate to cook. Except, I don't mind making beans and baked goods. It works well for us, he likes to cook, he's good at it and he likes the things I make in bulk to use as ingredients for meals.

Frivolous spending - $0.65

    Cheating on your diet doesn't count if you are sick and have kids to look after. Calories don't count there, it's a matter of self preservation!

    Go lie down on the couch with a box of kleenex, some tea, and a hot water bottle. Whisper orders at the kids. Everyone will feel sorry for you, get along, and clean up. I know I live in my own little dream world, but one day this might actually work. At the very least, your husband will feel sorry for you when he gets home...

    Robex - I'll take that as gospel - LOL.

    Why is it that the kids argue soooo much more when you feel bad. Or is it that you just notice it more because you just don't want to deal with it.

    I figure 150 calories isn't the end of the world. The main thing is that it was sugar (well, HFCS) and that's what I worked so hard to wean from. But 12 oz won't (I hope) be enough to cause a major set back.
