At least the Hefty bag is smiling

This woman at work today brought in a homemade chocolate cake. Oh My Goodness, I resisted with every ounce of self control I possess. However, I thought about that cake all day.

I had to stop at the grocery store on the way home to pick up some stuff for dinner. While there I thought, Hmm, I will make my very own chocolate cake tonight. I even found those little mini M&Ms and decided to throw those in the batter.

Now, let's back up for a second. At the beginning of the year Shelton and I went on this healthier eating habit party train. We were doing so well!! I went an entire month went out drinking a single pop. We kicked all JUNK: cookies, candy, fast food, etc and so forth. No Junk. All I drink, and continue to drink, is water. I even like it now. It's kinda yummy, and everything else kind of grosses me out now. I had even lost about 10 pounds, pretty good for not really even trying.

So, here I am, baking aisle, Dillons Grocery Store. My cart is full of Betty Crocker wonder. (Pause, I'm watching The Eagles concert on TV and Hotel California just came on.... one of the best songs ever!!!) I came home, baked the cake, Shelton shaking his head the whole way. Learned a little lesson- M&Ms sink to the very bottom of cake batter and stick to the bottom of the pan.

I frosted the cake. Cut it. Devoured a piece and it was just as yummy as I had hoped. Shelton and I started discussing how we have fallen off our healthy lifestyle wagon lately. Badly fallen. No, more like plummeted off and smashed our faces in the dirt. I picked up the plate with the still warm and gooey cake, and scraped it straight into the trash can.

We both stood there staring at each other not really believing I had just done what I had done.

That's it. I'm done with all this junky monkey crap. I am officially back on my wagon. so please do not try to tempt me with your sugary fatty ways.


yea - any extra food you have send to jim c @ Ny NY - i need all i can get
