Wondering how the penguins feel

My "2500 promise" has some free days built in* -- family birthdays and major holidays and our wedding anniversary.

Yesterday was a free day, and I must admit that it's quite fun to climb down off the wagon and indulge for a day in past vices, knowing that the next day everything will be back to normal. Fried bologna sandwich for lunch, my mom's Velveeta macaroni and cheese with Spam with brown sugar sauce for dinner (my daughter's requested birthday meal!), a couple plates of cake and ice cream, a Totinos pizza for an eleventh hour "snack", etc.

I must say, though, that this morning I'm wondering how the penguins feel after their prolonged gorge...


* It's probably a good idea to build some free days into your promises, especially if you're otherwise hesitant to make one of them. This is my only promise which such an asterisk, but really a Pepsi or Diet Coke would have made a nice addition to yesterday's fun food fest.
