Dirty Dozen

Have you ever dropped an egg on the floor?  Being the clutz that I am, it's happened to me more times than I can keep count :)  Creates a mess, but a little paper towel, cleaning fluid and elbow grease cleans everything up and pretty soon I'm back to cooking.

A diet deviation should be no different.  If we eat something unplanned or perhaps a bit too much of something, all we need to do is pick ourselves up, brush ourselves off and get right back to it.  Just like dropping an egg.  When I drop one egg, I don't decide that since one is broken I might as well drop the rest of the dozen.  Why is it that we tend to think that just because one meal got off track that the rest of the day is a lost cause?

Remember, we're always just one meal away from being on plan.  So clean up that egg, crack another and keep on cookin'!


  1. Great analogy for events in our life. Some of the best inventions come from hundreds of failed attempts. Edison took 10,001 attempts before perfecting the light bulb.

  2. I need to remind myself at times that we can often learn more by failure than we do by success.
