Where's the wagon.....?

I need to get back on! I did great yesterday until about 7:00. I was going to a friend's house for a Mom's Night Out with my mom's club. I had made collard rolls before I went, so I wouldn't be too hungry. It was a mexican theme, Nachos, margaritas etc. I brought some guacamole and veggies to dip and was all set to rawk! Then on the way there I got a phone call from another friend that completely upset me....not going into details, but I was in tears when I got there. I sat in the car until I was composed and then went in. I guess I didn't realize how much of an emotional eater I was....I went nuts with the nachos....somehow managed to resist the margarits though....
Anywho...started this morning with a bana........poop....no bananas!!! DH had eaten the last one before he went to work....does he not realize I live for my banana, almond butter smoothie!!! I just had a big spoonful of almond butter instead..not really the same thing!
Took DD to the park with some friends and went across the street to the mall after about an hour...TOO HOT!!! Yeah...it was 91 degrees today! Had a huge all raw salad ( the lady there now knows me and what I want...I'm a mall rat)
Made Alissa's date nut torte with my new food processor! Talk about a quick, easy, delicious dessert!!!! DH and DD loved it.
Then....we went to a banquet at church...the salad was ok (raw except for some olives) but then it was chicken and pasta and green beans. I ate all the green beans rationalizing that they were really crunchy, so maybe they were only slightly dead (ie. Monty Python's Holy Grail...I'm not quite dead yet...I think I'll go for a walk!) I also had a bit of the chicken and pasta. For dessert they had a chocolate fountain with all sorts of goodies to dip..I've never been a huge chocolate fan...but had some Huge strawberries dipped in a bit of chocolate.
I think I would have been fine to eat the salad and maybe ask for another bowl and then just munch on the fruit on the dessert table...but I was too "shy" to call attention to myself. I didn't want to answer a lot of questions. Not a great reason, I know. I can't wait to get back on the wagon tomorrow. I know I can do this, because the last 3 weeks I did really well.
Thanks for being here everyone! Without this blog, it would be too easy to throw in the towel.
Let me back on!!!!
