I did my back exercises. I took a 40 minute walk. I over-ate (2282 calories).

My goals for tomorrow are the same as the goals I had for today. Maybe I'll get it right...

(Oh food! Why do you have to be so delicious???!!!)

5/6 goals for today met. I had a larger piece of birthday cake than I needed to have, but I followed the rest of the plan to the letter, with an estimated intake of 1694 calories today, which isn't bad for a family party day.

My health goals for tomorrow are:

1. Only one mimosa with brunch
2. No seconds on any brunch foods
3. Do back exercises after guests leave
4. Do something aerobic after guests leave
5. Cook something healthy for dinner

I did my back exercises in the morning, walked our neighbor's dog Maya in hilly terrain for a half hour and kept my calories in check - 1321 total.

Tomorrow is the day this train is likely to come off the rails. There is a family dinner party at my sister-in-law's tomorrow night to celebrate the birthday of her father. I know the birthday cake is going to be spectacular... 'cuz I'm makin' it!!! I am also baking a couple of loaves of bread for the party. To make abandoning any diet even more likely, Saturday morning we are having guests over to our house for brunch.

I need a plan to get through Friday night and Saturday morning. I know I won't have time to exercise again until Saturday afternoon after brunch, so I'm just going to focus on not over-eating tomorrow.

One day at a time...

My health goals for tomorrow are:

1. Keep breakfast in the 300 calorie range and lunch in the 400 calorie range, which should give me some "wiggle room" to enjoy the birthday party
2. At the birthday party, have a mineral water or a club soda instead of a cocktail
3. Don't eat any store bought appetizers. They are not worth the calories!!! If there are homemade appetizers, don't eat more than one of anything that is just too tempting to resist.
4. No seconds on ANY dinner items, especially the bread - only go through the buffet line once
5. Continue to sip mineral water through dinner instead of having a glass of wine
6. Do not eat a big piece of birthday cake - keep it in the small-medium range

I'll worry about getting through Saturday tomorrow night.

I found this on a Bing search here Angela.

So the answer to my question "Can skunks be housebroken?" is essentially "No, but they might get it right just often enough to keep you hoping they can be housebroken."

I'll stick to outside skunks, thank you!!!

I am going to start posting health goals for the next day here, in hopes that posting them will goad me into doing them. I am going to tackle my total lack of will power one day at a time.

Tomorrow my health goals are to:
1. Do my back stretching exercises
2. Do some aerobic exercise
3. Keep my total caloric intake to no more than 1500 calories

Am I mistaken, or do I recall descented skunks being kept as pets?

I have heard of this too, despite the fact that skunks are particularly prone to rabies. I'm not sure it is legal in all states. Even with regular rabies shots for the skunk, I still would not want a de-scented skunk as a pet because I do not think they are smart enough to be litter box trained. If any Critter Cafe readers have "indoor skunks", please let me know if this is a correct assumption.
