Even Festus Got To Have Apple Pie Once In A While

I had a show down today...

I felt like a shell-shocked Marshall Dillon today,
facing down a notorious gunslinger
on the dusty streets of Dodge City...

at one end of town, there was me...
tired. sugar-deprived. with an itchy fork finger.
and there at the other end of town was my foe...
looking cool. confident. and slightly delicious.

Someone brought in the TWO, yes, TWO leftover cakes
from a luncheon at church yesterday.
Put them on the conference room table.
Thought they'd be nice and share...
and it was a nice thing to do...a little too nice...

As I sat at the conference table at lunchtime and quietly ate my Frozen Diet Dinner, those TWO, yes TWO, cakes seemed to slowly make their way across the table. Closer and closer. I think I even heard the lid on one of them actually pop open by itself...

But after the six and half bites it took to finish that scrumptious FDD, I slowly stood up, my chair scraping across the floor. Backing away from the table, I laughed confidently at those TWO, yes TWO cakes. I wasn't going to turn my back on these guys today. Or put them on a paper plate and take them back to my desk. Not gonna happen on my watch.

Victoriously, I threw my empty FDD in the trash, and with a last triumphant glance, I left the conference room, having resisted TWO, yes TWO cakes, got on my horse and rode off into the sunset...

okay, maybe I could use a little sugar...
I called Mark 'Miss Kitty' when I got home.

Oh my goodness, Debbie I hope you killed the bugger as I have had that same shoot out and lost.
All kidding aside you are my hero! I admire you as this food thing is one of the toughest battles of the flesh. I think because we can just quit cold turkey-we still have to eat to live. So how to do that in moderation, healthy and in this world full of tempting choices is difficult to say the least.
My years of indulging have caught up with me and my body has been damaged. My blood pressure and cholestrol were sky high last year and I had to start working on it -docs orders. After 6 months improvement but not fast enough for my age so he put me on medication which has brought both under control except my triglicerides. He now has me taking 2,ooomg of Omega 3's and another blood test in about 3 months.
Again, I admire you and pray that you will be victorious!! lol Lynn

Miss Kitty - hummm - I'm not quite sure how to take a pet name that is such an affront to my masculinity.
