Two Words

Pecans & Chocolate Chips.

Okay, that's more than 2 words.  But it wasn't pretty.  That was dinner. No joke. Like THAT was planned!

I made delicious, healthy, whole wheat pumpkin pancakes for dinner for the kids. I did actually eat a small one.  The kids ate the rest, they were awesome. 

Headache, going to bed. (of course you have a headache, you ate chocolate chips and pecans for DINNER!)  Sheesh!


  1. Hey, it happened. They key in that sentence is that the verb is past tense. Now your job is to keep it from happening again unless it IS planned. I don't deny myself, I just plan my indulgences.

  2. Oh my, that sounds like a terrible temptation! Pecans alone are like crack to me! :-)

    Have a better day today!

  3. Why do we tempt ourselves? You're going to laugh b/c I had a problem with pecans and chocolate chips today too! I was making some birthday treats just a few minutes ago (I really need to stop doing this--I like giving treats to everyone at our church for their birthday but every time I end up pigging out on whatever it is that I make for them!) and I kept telling myself I would NOT sample them. They were a version of pretzel turtles--I took mini pretzels, put a carmamel on top of each one, then a jumbo chocolate chip on top of the caramel squares and baked at 350 for like 5 minutes until softened. Then I pressed pecans on top. The salty/sweet combo is so addicting and I've never been able to eat just one so I told myself I wouldn't eat ANY. Well, of course I dove in! I ate five, which is better than I've done in the past so that's a win, but it was still about 350 calories I hadn't planned on! Yikes. Well, it's done and we just have to move on. Let's do it.

  4. First you put all those appetizing recipe foods on your blog, so that I can't scroll too far without drooling-then you add chocolate chips to your title?!?!?!? Just plain mean. ;-)

  5. Hang in there Deb.. feel better... tomorrow is a new day..

  6. I love your honesty. Really I do. A normal everyday person that stuggles to become a better healthier you. You're doing good Debbi, even with the screw ups.
    Keep working at it and one day it'll all come together.
    Take care and God Bless!!

  7. So, here's the thing: what would you say to me if I posted this on my blog? You would be kind to me, right? Be kind to youself, too. This is you as a human, like all of us other humans.
