Now, before you send me a nasty email, hear me out on this. Last week I started officially shedding excess poundage. It was glorious, truly. To avoid temptation, I was careful to make sure there was no junk food in the house. I know myself well enough to know if it’s here, I’ll eat it.
Then, the little old ladies entered the picture. On Wednesday night, my 70+ year old neighbor dropped by….and left a key lime pie cheesecake. CHEESECAKE!! Have I mentioned that I LOVE cheesecake?
Then on Saturday we decided to grill some burgers and invited an older female family member (60+) to join us. Between the time I talked with her and her arrival, she in turn talked to her neighbor (who by the way is late 70’s as well). The neighbor lady then baked a cherry cobbler AND a Bundt cake pan size pound cake….and sent them both to MY house! Thankfully, it was a lemon pound cake and I don’t like lemon pound cake, so it’s going to the husbands work tomorrow. But, CHERRY cobbler??? Come on now, this has got to stop!
Pure evil I tell you!
Sure, you may say to yourself “just don’t eat it”. My best friend Donna even suggested that I just throw the cheesecake away. (Donna, you do know there are starving people in Ethiopia and that by eating the cheesecake instead of trashing it, I was in some way helping those Ethiopians, right??) It’s similar to holding an AA meeting in a brewery after a week of sobriety.
Anyway, there were some other contributing factors to my weight this week. The biggest (aside from the cheesecake) was the fact that I finally got a cortisone shot in my foot! woohoo! That stuff works fast and the pain is gone! However, I was told to take it easy for the week, so I didn’t do any exercising.
So the results are in…..drum roll please! I didn’t gain, or lose. I held steady at 3lbs. lost thus far. This week I’m back to walking so next week should be better, right?
