Day 16... **sigh**

Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss!

Today was Read-Me day at my school. But, I missed it because I had to call in sick. This stomach bug is no joke! I was absolutely MISERABLE all morning, but after some meds and sleep this morning I feel better. Good thing.

School was dismissed at noon today because of severe weather threats in the area. We have had tornadoes and storms with golf ball sized hail all evening. We even had to take cover once. I am glued to the news right now... it's scary.

Around noon I just happened to remember that I was supposed to bring two desserts to my nephew's wrestling banquet tonight. Crap. SO even though I felt like ^&%(((&^%, I got up and set about making two cakes... Orange Juice Cake and Chocolate Earthquake Cake. The Orange Juice Cake ended up falling apart as I took it out of the pan, so then I had to make chess squares, because I sure as heck wasn't about to go tot he store and I had to use what I had already at home.

Let's just say that I KNOW that I've had way too many BLT's (bits, licks, and tastes). I would catch myself doing it. I did eat a hunk of the orange juice cake when it fell apart. And I am way behind on my water today - between going to the bathroom and the fact that I basically slept until noon... everything is just OFF today.

But I am not going to submit to failure. It's not too late to get it together. My calories are low, so one bite of cake isn't going to kill me. I am going to try to drink as much water as I can before bed. And now that they have CANCELLED the banquet due to the storms, I don't have to worry about being tempted with food tonight. It's been rescheduled for tomorrow, so I can wake up in the morning and plan my day accordingly.

No gym yesterday... I had to go into Nashville after school and didn't get home until 9 p.m. I did go to a great Health/Wellness seminar at my church last night that was good. More about that later.

No gym today, either. Between sickness and tornadoes... it ain't happening.

Tomorrow will be better. But today still counts. No excuses.
