I started my first day AD with a delicious omelet stuffed with blue cheese and crabmeat - so good.

Later, we had a group trip planned to go strawberry picking at an organic strawberry farm. This was a lot of fun but instead of picking, I just did a whole lot of eating. I filled myself up on strawberries, which would most definitely qualify as survivor food because I was eating them right off the plants. They were amazing. Sweet as can be.
Debbie brought home about 5 pounds of berries and then when we got home, Pat arrived with a big box of the chocolate covered. . . strawberries. I couldn't stop myself! So good.
WOW! I could eat this picture all up!
Can you tell I have a little chocolate problem right now? In the afternoon the birthday party came and although I tried to have some self control, I just couldn't. One day after the SDC ends and I go completely sugar happy. You would have too if you saw the spread. I mean really - check this out. . . This cupcake was homemade with little individual sugar coated marshmallow swirlies on top:
I'm not even going to reveal all of the other stuff I ate but I'm sure I will be paying the price very soon. See, that's why diets suck. Because there's always an end. And when it ends, it's a free for all. There HAS TO BE A PLAN IN PLACE for the end. If not, then don't even bother. So I'm going to treat this little food fest like a 'weekly reward' in the SDC. I don't know if anyone noticed but I did not take my last weekly reward which was basically a pot luck - any meal I wanted. When I caught those crabs, well, that was the meal I wanted. So the reward was not necessary. (I think I'm trying to justify my actions)
I'll try to be better from now on but with a fridge full of chocolate covered strawberries and a Valrhona brick on its way, I'm not making any promises.
