Last night Jon, Cheryl and the grandkids stopped by for a visit. "I brought you a piece of pizza!" Cheryl said. OMG... Hawaiian! I ate about half of it, and then picked the top off the rest of it. Just a skoosh off my plan for the day.
Today is a different matter. Should I be worried? What do you think?
Got to Captain's house about 9:30 this morning because we were going winetasting in Livermore, about 90 miles away. He wanted to stop at Cafe Lumiere and get a coffee and croissant. I got a coffee, he got a coffee and the ham and cheese croissant. He wanted to share it with me, so I had a couple of bites, but gave him the rest of my half. (Oh my, but they are good!)
We arrived at Charles R Vineyards. It is the "pick-up party" for wine club members, so they are rather busy. The snacks were cranberry salsa on goat cheese served with sesame crackers. And blueberry preserves on goat cheese. And pate a choux with apricot jam. And salty crust bites. OMG... I may be in trouble now. Overall I did not do too bad. I had about six crackers, mostly with the goat cheese and salsa, and 7 wine tastings. Then they brought out the port with the brownie bite. Really, it was just a bite. Maybe a 1 inch square of brownie. It was an awesome pairing.
We visited with friends for a while, then hit the road. We were going to try McConnell Vineyards in Elk Grove, which was on the way home. We tasted 5 different wines, 3 of which were sparkling, and then THEY brought out the port and chocolate. It was really good port, and fortunately we only had 3 small bites of chocolate.
Long day, and we are headed to Vallejo's for an early dinner. I love Mexican food. My favorite!
I ordered carnitas with all beans, no rice, and flour tortillas. Captain ordered steak, chicken and shrimp ranchero. Did I mention how much I love Mexican food?
Anyhoo... I had some carnitas on a flour tortilla and half my beans. I also had 3 chips with tomatillo salsa. He ate half of his plate. Waiter, may we have a doggie bag? Most of my dinner, half of his dinner, and the rest of the chips found their way into the doggie bag and went home with Captain.
As I step back and review my day it really wasn't as bad as it could have been. I did not over-indulge or over-eat. Did I keep to my Atkins plan? No. Is it ok? Yes. Why? Because I am not going to beat myself up for being human.
Tomorrow is another day to continue with my commitment. See you tomorrow!
