I did, however, succumb to a cupcake last night. We had friends visiting that we haven't seen since November that share my passion for Muddy's cupcakes (it's karma since I was talking about them at Fat Mom's blog the other day). First, I made spaghetti and French bread for dinner. Everyone else had whole wheat noodles while I had a small amount of sauce with my spaghetti squash (still trying to get used to that texture). They brought me a Prozac, and I enjoyed it thoroughly. And, can I say, how ironic is that after talking Dr. H out of anti-depressants on Monday? Anywho, I estimated the cupcake was 300-350 (and I'm estimating high to be on the safe side) and I was still under my 1200 calories for the day. Thank you, spaghetti squash! Glad I didn't waste those calories on noodles. Even though the cupcake fit into my budget, this will not become a habit. I know me, and I know I have a sweet tooth. A well planned and budgeted treat occasionally is fine, but once a week is not occasionally.
We had a blast with the friends, but I'm also glad to have my quiet house back with the being sick and all. Tine for soup and more medicine!
