I am writing this right now, just so I can make myself stick to my guns. Because now that you all know my temptation to do what I decided I would not do (or you will in a moment), it would be embarrassing to fail to keep my promise to myself.
I started a new diet 3 weeks ago or so. Not a weight loss diet but a more healthy diet, although I’ve been delighted to have lost some unwanted pounds. I am only supposed to eat lean meats, fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds, and eggs are ok too. It is surprisingly very easy to stick to once you get past the horrendous carb cravings the first week.
For Easter my daughter wanted to make these cute little bird nest things. They are made with rice krispie treats. Unfortunately rice krispie treats are not a meat, fruit, or vegetable. They are however, one of my most favorite foods in the whole world (when homemade of course.) My daughter just left with my niece and now I am left at home with warm, gooey, delicious rice krispie treats in my kitchen and no distractions. I keep thinking, I could just have one bite….what’s the harm in that. But I know if I do, I talk myself into more, and then not only will I been super disappointed in myself, then I will have to deal the raging carb cravings all over again.
So officially, NO rice krispie treats for me!
Just to make sure, ask me about it later, ok?
