Wisdom Brings Humility

I was confident about my new diet plan…until I started adding up the calories.

  • Chicken Zoodles, 1/2 serving – 365
  • Olive Garden Salad – 140
  • Olive Garden Breadsticks, 2 – 300
  • Andes Mints, 2 – 50

Thank God, we didn’t order extra breadsticks or dessert!

My plan fell apart.

We stopped for ice cream – 330 calories. But, hey, we were celebrating Olivia’s birthday!

That evening we went to a small town, soup supper fundraiser. Derek was playing and I promised to go.

My choices for the meal weren’t bad but they had pie. I snatched it up not caring about the calories!

At intermission, they offered a second serving of dessert. They didn’t want to waste them.

Of course, I got in line.
