This Sunday at church our pastor mentioned how we get tempted or tested all the time by things around us. These tests are meant to build our character. Well I must be one hell of a character, because this cake is sitting in the kitchen right now and I am refusing to eat it. I keep thinking of our weigh in this weekend and how good it felt to actually see the inches go down. Once I reached a certain point in my weight gain I thought it was never coming off. I think I had convinced myself that what I had gained was there to stay and there wasn’t anything I could do about it. I now know for sure that is incorrect.
Another win I might mention is that I slipped my wedding ring on this weekend. My fingers were cold and wet so it literally slid right past my knuckle. Getting it off last night was a totally different story. Kyle and I saved our day off for Sunday instead of our normal Saturday and we certainly took advantage of the snacks set out for the big game. After a day of mac and cheese, chips and salsa, cookies, wings, and cheese dip my finger had gotten a little swollen. It did come off with some soap and water, but I am still thrilled that I was able to get it on with such ease.
