Today, I've been surrounded by temptation every time I turn around. I had my smoothie this morning, while Brian made French toast for the boys (that doesn't really tempt me, though, he does it most Sundays). I worked out before church this morning, so of course, as church is coming to a close, I started getting hungry. Caleb came with me again today :) After church, they had a luncheon. I wouldn't have gone, but of course Cal was all over it. You wouldn't believe the spread....crazy! Tons of pastas, roast beef, etc. There was also a spinach salad w/ strawberries and nuts, along w/ a spiral pasta dish w/ tomatoes, artichokes, etc. I ate quite a bit of the salad, and I picked around the pasta dish to avoid having the pasta (although I probably ate 5). But let me tell you....the desserts looked so amazing! There was a chocolate/bacon cake, brownies, pie, and a couple other types of chocolate cakes. Cal helped himself to a nice slice of chocolate cake. Now, I really wanted a bite, really, really, bad. I think I'm starting to P.M.S. already! I was able to take some food home for the boys. I knew Ryne would love the bacon cake. His fave thing is the bacon/maple bar from Voodoo doughnuts. He had the cake for dessert tonight, and he said it was pure heaven (nice, since we got it from church :)
After we got home from church, we took the boys swimming. Again, I got super hungry... Brian wanted to get the boys a pizza tonight from Pizza Hut. So, the smell of the pizza was lofting through the air, the whole drive home... I really wanted a slice. But thankfully, I kept my head on straight....
All in all today, has been great. I've been really active, and got to enjoy some good family time. Hopefully these cravings subside very soon!
Hope you're having a wonderful Sunday!
-Thanks Amy, for reminding me about "true" hunger. It's something I often forget. I won't eat the rest of the night.
