Day 18 & 19
Day 18, I decided to bake these chocolate chip lava cups (super yummy and easy recipe btw) and I cheated like no other. I’m having a hard time balancing my diet. Other than the cookie cheat, I did well in terms of keeping my strict diet day 18, but again, like I said, I have to focus on balancing my diet, not keeping a strict diet. I definitely was NOT practicing moderation with those cookie cups. It was also my cousin’s birthday and she invited me to her birthday dinner. I opted for 1 beer, and ordered some bacon wrapped dates. Afterwards, hung out and was still hungry and was taken to this place that is known for their jalapeno ham and cheese croissants (Seaside Bakery). Horrible cheat day, but I’m working on it. At least I practiced the moderation of my diet with the birthday dinner and late night croissant stop. Day 19, I went hiking at this local park called Peters Canyon. The hike was going fine, up until I ate it in dirt while going downhill. It went from a walk to a jog to a full on run where I couldn’t stop. Not cool, ended up with some gnarly scratches on my left back and arm. Decided to end the night with a nice warm, well-deserved bowl of pho. Gosh, seriously, last August was so much easier when there was nothing going on, no big events. This is going to take more than 30 days.
