A Total Cheat Day

Finding the insurance office was a LOT of fun. (Dripping with sarcasm) I went up and down the street three times before I gave up and went to my son's to do laundry. I asked him to take me to find it since he doesn't get lost. We went up and down the street twice before he put his GPS on his phone to work, and even that didn't help. When it said we were right there, there wasn't a sign. I watched the numbers on the mailboxes and found the right area, and with a process of elimination and going through parking lots, we finally found it. It was listed on a sign for the businesses in the little shop area, but it was so small it was hard to notice it - obviously. So, that is taken care of and on to finishing the laundry. I got it started before we went hunting the insurance agency. My son made Baklava on Saturday and he handed me a small triangle. I won't say no to Baklava - ever. It was perfect! I'm glad it was a small triangle. While we were on our way back from the insurance office, he stopped at Dairy Queen and yes, I got a fish sandwich. It's the first fast food and bread I've eaten in almost a year and a half. It was totally worth the cheat day. It also means I won't have as many eggs as I expected today. So, that was my day. I'm home. I watched an episode of When Calls the Heart while I folded the laundry and put it away. Now, I'm going to get the notifications finished. If I have time, I want to get work done on a book. I will be back in the pool tomorrow. I didn't go today because it was only -27 wind chill this morning. Tomorrow will be much better. How is your day? Thanks for reading.

It was a rainy day, but not cold. I went out in the morning to do some chores. I cannot resist Baklava.

I can't either when he puts it in my hand. It was so good. I'm glad it wasn't cold when you went out to do chores.

Do you have your car or were you driving your neighbor"s? I've had that experience with the GPS telling me I've reached my destination only to drive around and around. Ugh! A cheat day is good every once in awhile. I also did 4 loads of laundry and am done until tomorrow! Wheeeeeee! lol We got our Shingles shots today after waiting months for them to get them in. Only 7 left, so I dropped what I was doing (myLotting) and ran to get them with hubs. Enjoy your evening.

I had the neighbor's car. Yes, totally frustrating when the GPS tells you to turn and there's nothing to indicate you've arrived. My car should get worked on next week when the temps start going up. I won't get the shingles shot. I had them a long time ago when I was in the Navy. At least that's what the doctor said it was.

@DianneN If it becomes mandatory, then I'll need to get it. Until then, I don't do unnecessary needles.

I think I did. I worried how the bread would react on my system, but so far so good.

@just4him But they are always such tiny pieces. I think 5 or 6 would be the right number to have.

@xander6464 I totally agree with you. However, I need to remember I'm on a food program for a reason. I NEED to lose weight. Not only because I want to, but they won't do knee replacement surgery if I don't lose it.

I didn't walk. I was in the car looking for that agency. I don't know how popular it is here. I had it for the first time when I found a Greek restaurant in the neighborhood where I worked. It's where I fell in love with baklava. My son's x-girlfriend made it and he always helped when they were together. She's a fabulous cook and baker. Her baklava was awesome. My son learned from a pro. His was perfect.

@just4him As what I heard, baklava is Albanian dish but, many other countries make it as well. O, from the car, I see.

I didnt know DQ had fish ?! Neither of ours do. And never seen a commercial of it. Strange for them, I think. But glad you enjoyed it! Definitely sounds worth the cheat day.

@just4him we have two DQs here. One across the street. Which only does ice cream, smoothies, and hot dogs. And the other is about 45-60mins away. Which does those plus chicken fingers, fries, and burgers.

It's brisk here but it's we had wind chill below zero I didn't know it. My daughter mentioned twice that it was very cold outside and the weather doesn't bother her much so maybe we did have some of that colder stuff too. Right now it's about four degrees and that's all I know. It's supposed to reach the forties here by the weekend. Good going that you made it a year and as half before cheating on your diet. That's impressive. I'm finally creeping down little by little but today I've been hungrier than normal so hopefully I'm not nulling my recent progress.

At least for bread and fast food. There have been small cheats, especially at Christmas, but not since until yesterday. I'm glad you're creeping down. I hate it when I'm hungrier than usual.

@just4him I did gain a portion of a pound today but my husband is getting me more veggie snacks to keep me on track. Hopefully.

I'm glad you let yourself be rewarded with a couple of small treats. Probably the insurance company doesn't really want to be found.

If the sign was more prominent, it would be easier to find.
