A day of failures….. and triumphs

I was very excited about making dinner tonight! I made chicken and dumplings! I had never had dumplings before let alone make them! It was all turning out great. It had to simmer it for 15 minutes without opening the lid. After 10 mintues I thought I smelled burning. I wrecked dinner. I offered to go get McD’s but Steve said no you made it so we will eat it. We did – smokey flavour and all. To be absolutely honest……. I liked it! But I am sure it will taste better next time without the ‘added flavours’.

Then after dinner I ate chocolate – well a crunchie actually – and about 2/3 only. While I know I have failed my 10 day quest – I can safely say that I have *not* failed in ‘kicking the habit’. Seriously after the first 2 bites I had had enough! So I gave it to Steve and I can honestly say that I will NOT be rushing out to buy more. It was rather ‘meh’.

So afterwards I went for a walk. Now the big block is 3km and the little block is 1.3km. I have been just doing a lap of the big block. Tonight I did the big block and fair dinkum I was going so fast my shoes should have been smoking. I was nearing the end and I found myself not wanting to stop! I didnt feel tired or sore so I kept going – I did a little lap. So 4.3kms later I still felt great but I didnt go again in case Stephen called a search party! LOL! I am very happy with my progress. I didnt even cringe when Steve said why dont you go for a walk – because I *wanted* to walk.

So while I had 2 failures….. dinner and chocolate – they were far outweighed by my triumphs….. I dont want chocolate anymore and a nice long walk!
