At my work we have a little apple shaped bowl filled with all kinds of sweets. I normally have a hand full of chocolate kisses or whatever chocolate we have in the apple bowl. I only had one piece today and that was huge for me!!!
Good for you BABYCOP05 for following through, I will keep you in my prayers, you will be fine. Take time to really enjoy your weekend, and make sure you get some rest. And then just get back into the swing of things on Monday!!!! Just remember to take one day at a time.
To follow through with the Biopsy I had done on my breast today. I was scared at first and felt like cancelling the appointment. But, I prayed about the procedure and went to the appointment. Now I can't exercise until Monday

To roll out of bed and go do my 60 minutes of cardio instead of sleeping longer. *sigh*... It was a nice warm cozy bed too.
Took the time this morning to put together a healthy lunch - eating it at my desk after a workout!!

I went for my morning walk and I did the entire two miles. Despite feeling lethargic & fussy. After breakfast I went out in the garden and did some digging; got my hands good and dirty!

I was sleepy and wanting to eat some high calorie foods because I thought it would help pep me up. But I decided to exercise instead; I put on a dance workout video, and sweated for 45 minutes, so now I'd rather have a healthy snack like fruit and yogurt.

For some reason I woke up humgry this morning. After eating a piece of toast and instant oatmeal, I began to look into the cubbards for WHATEVER!! I found myself nibbling, and wasn't even hungry. I decided to go for a bike ride, and get out of the house. My husband and I rode 10 miles!!! I felt wonderful and quite empowered!! Nothing like alittle exercise to clear the head and get back on track. We DO have a choice!!

Went to get my tires rotated this morning (a quick errand on the way to try out a new gym), and ended up buying NEW tires because mine were worn out. Instead of sitting in the waiting room, I walked the giant parking lot for 35 minutes.
Then I went and tried out a gym I've never been to - just as I'd planned - and did another 30 minutes on the elliptical trainer.

I went out at lunch to find some new shoes-while me feet are bloated! Depressed about how horrible my feet look I started thinking about stopping at one or ALL the fast food places on the way back. I even drove right up to one and then backed away! I came back to the office wanting to eat something more something better than the lean cuisine meal but I didn't. I ate my meal and I'm satisfied. I'm havin a bigger dinner tonight so I wanted to save the calories anyway!

Gotobefit...I know just how you feel. I love Godfather Pizza it is great. I to gave up a fried chicken wing and dinner roll. My office friend was going to through it out so I took it. Just like the old me I thought of eating it even though I just had lunch. But instead I looked for someone else to take it to. My boss did not eat so I gave it to him. It was hard but it made me feel better as soon as he took it from my hand. It was just like a weight was lifted off my shoulders. I was sooo obligated to see that that chicken and roll be consumed that I was about to consume it myself. Thank God I passed the buck and I hope I will have the will power to do it when I am faced with a situation like that again.

Wasn't today, but yesterday I was really craving chips & dip. I wanted some soooo bad, but since I had just eaten my supper and knew I wasn't hungry, I drank my water and got myself interested in doing some stretching. Before I knew it I had survived the craving - and it was a bad one that had been working on me ALL day!

To work out for 15 extra minutes this morning. I was going to be below my weekly goal for cardio minutes (although calorie burned would be where it needed to be or a bit higher). I decided that I was at the gym, I might as well keep going and meet the goal. I did and am 400 calories over my calories burned goal for the week.

awww I love bunnies. I turned down free shots at the bar last night. I didn't want to drink because I didn't want the extra calories... but they were FREE because the bartender is my roommate... but I didn't take em. Go me.

Efter all the problems of lossing weight to stop wetting my pants (lossing 176lbs) I returned to the gym accepting using a product for my weak bladder and had a great workout. Several ladies came and asked where I got my corset from, so I had to tell them I had a operation to remove my 35 cms stomach skin and needed this to support my stomach muscles until the incision line had healed completely. They understand everything about having a weak bladder and applauded me for keeping at it. When I return to the hospital for my check up I will ask my surgeon to if possible for him to refer me back to the Gynaecological department. I hope he will explain, that I have done everything humanly possible under my own steam to quit wetting my pants. If he can't help me I will return to my own GP and ask her to send me return. I will not give up or get weak, the rain clouds have to clear at some stage!

This morning I looked up the Iced Capp and donut I really wanted at Tim Horton's and realized that for the same 8 WW points (400 calories), I could have a glass of milk, my daily bowl of oatmeal, and a banana. This only took 6 points, plus it gave me one of my dairy and one of my fruit requirements. And I will not crash from a sugar high later and eat something because it's convenient. Sometimes it's hard to do the right thing. My hips and buns will thank me later. Hope you all make a good decision today!
