WW Journal 5/2

Confession day! I blew it today. Yep. I promised Chris I'd make him some Starbucks-like blueberry scones and I couldn't resist the temptation to chow down when they came out of the oven. I was just gonna take a nibble to see how they turned out but they were soooo good. Then, I finished off a bag of chocolate chips....I had about 5 TBSPs which equals about 10 points. Sigh. Thankfully, I didn't blow it the rest of the day. I used self-control at dinner but to top it off, I haven't worked out either. Dang. Can you tell what I do when I'm stressed? EAT! Stressed because I was worried about Chris being out in the floods and storms. So thankful he's safe at home tonight when so many aren't.

Praying I won't let the guilt and shame from today carry over into tomorrow. My boss closed the office tomorrow so I get to spend the day with the kids again. YAY!!!

Blew my day....thank goodness for God's grace tomorrow!

Aww friend, it's ok. Considering the stressful weekend, I think you did fine :) The important thing is just getting back on track.

Looking forward to seeing you--if we don't have to swim there :)
