Boy did I ever blow it yesterday. But I think I cured myself at the same time. Just had to buy some chips and dip when I went to the store. My excuse was that the "oldest" loves them. Was so down last night that I decided to go ahead and open the packages and have just a little. I had eaten good all day so I thought, what the heck, a little won't hurt. And a little probably wouldn't have. But I didn't have a little. I had a lot. I measured the dip and counted the chips and everything but still... I decided to get my fill. And I did. YUCK!!! By the time I'd finished what I had doled out I was sick to my stomach. And had to pop the tums in the middle of the night. (Still have some in the night stand drawer from my "fatty" days.) Why oh why do we do that to ourselves? And I know I'm not the only one 'cause y'all fess up at times too :o) It will be a long time before I want any more of that stuff. To beat it all, after adding it to my other food the calories didn't go above 1400. Just think what a wonderful food day I would have had if I hadn't grossed out. I know me, I probably would have had another kind of snack, but it would have been a healthy one at least.
Company didn't come yesterday and that's a good thing. They decided to drive to a town near the white water rafting place so they wouldn't have to get up so early here for the drive. It's about an hour and a half from here. Smart choice on their part. So they will be here this evening sometime after they are off the river.
I'm into a really good book right now. It's by James Rollins. He writes action books that delve a little into the historical, biblical stuff. They are usually set in present times but take place in biblical areas and have some biblical connotations in them. His books are a little slow for the first chapter but after that they are really hard to put down. Think I'll be reading a lot today, in between cooking, because I can hardly wait to see how the main characters are going to get out of their predicaments.
