So… I’ve been taking a bit of a break. As I stated before, my dad was in town, which had me off-game anyways, but then we had hubby and the youngest’s birthdays, plus another event. I just decided rather than drive myself nuts trying to navigate it all, I’d just take a breather and get back to it on Monday when everything was done.
I hate that anytime I eat above my calorie goals I gain weight – even when I’m still eating in what should be a “maintenance” range (at least according to various calculators). I mean, I know it’s not exact science, but still.. frustrating.

Well… I knew this week was going to be rough, and though I tried really hard to minimize the damage, I more or less totally fell off the diet wagon by the time mid-week rolled around (yay for 23rd anniversary and being that time of the month XD).
But, ya know, it’s ok. I really, really needed the break and I know it’s mostly water weight that will drop right back off. So I’m spending another day or so eating things that I don’t normally eat, and then I’ll get back to it.

Birthday week. It was a given that I’d gain a couple pounds, we ate at Olive Garden Sunday (Valentine’s/Birthday) and then last night I went to see Black Panther (awesome!!) and had a pile of chicken tenders along with cake. So like, yeah… But still, I stayed within goal 5 of 7 days (along with still working out) and yesterday morning, I was still weighing in at 278. So four pounds just because I ate food yesterday!!?
Because there are just some days that you have to give in and go for what you are craving. And holy cow… this is pretty freaking yummy!!! Soooo totally worth the extra work I’ll have to do to compensate for going over calories today. And to be fair, I’ve been resisting this beautiful concoction for several weeks, so I think I did good to hold out as long as I did.
According to the Arby’s website it’s: Indulgently sweet with cinnamon spice. Topped with whipped cream and cookie pieces. I got the hint of cinnamon, but the rest of the flavors are hard to describe – if only because I’m too busy sucking it down to form a coherent thought. Totally delicious!!
I would add it to a “Things Discovered” post, but it’s very much not a diet food. Either way though, if you can squeeze the calories in (or are ready for a well deserved cheat day), it’s definitely worth getting one before they’re gone.
