Yesterday I posted about the temptation of KFC's chicken & fries...did I take the deal, or did I proudly say "NO DEAL!" with my head held high?
Most of you were pretty sure that I used my strong will power to resist the greasy meal (thanks for the vote of confidence, by the way...), but a few of you suggested that you yourselves would've succumbed to temptation so you would understand if I did as well (thanks for that leniency as well!).
Well, the suspense is now over. What did I do?
I ate the chicken and fries...and gravy.
But no Pepsi -- does that count for anything?? (okay, okay -- I already had a Pepsi earlier that day at work...but my co-worker bought it for me. I can't, as an avid Pepsi drinker, refuse free Pepsi can I? No, I think that would actually be unethical)
So why did I post about it if I didn't 'succeed'? I know some of you figured that I must've held strong and was using this as an opportunity to rightfully brag about my successes in my weight loss journey.
But rather, I knew even before going to the restaurant to place my order, that I was going to indulge in the supper. Oh sure, I had considered being strong -- really, I did! -- but in the end, temptation won out.
So I figured I would still blog about it and instead use it as another kick in the butt. I had counted on most of my readers thinking positively about me and my efforts, and I knew that I would feel convicted by the comments.
And you did.
And I did.
Now I figure if you guys all think that I can do it...then maybe I actually can! Trust me, I kicked myself afterwards for indulging. Not only because I knew it wasted a lot of my previous efforts...but because it made me feel sick to my stomach afterwards too.
Sigh...will I never learn??
