Return to good behavior

I haven’t precisely been bad while I’ve been on vacation.  I’ve eaten more sweets than I usually would, and I did skip a couple of workouts, but on the whole, I’ve tried to stick with my portion control and exercise plan.  I think I was pretty successful.  My husband and I just had a last night of vacation dinner complete with cheese fries and pizza.  I only had a small serving of the cheese fries though, and two squares of pizza.  They are pretty small squares, so I think that would equal about a slice and a half of pizza.  Where I went wrong was in having an apple cupcake. 

Oh, it was delicious.  And ultimately, as long as I don’t have any more junk food in the next couple of weeks, I will be fine.  Right now, though, I’ve got a raging case of heartburn as my body reminds me that I don’t eat that way anymore.   I guess that is a good sign – a little built in safeguard if I start to slip back into my old ways.  But clearly the end of my vacation has come just in time.  So, tomorrow it’s back to work and back to good behavior for me!
