two things... at lunch i resisted a second serving (one cup) of hamburger helper lasagna because it was 300 cals. I actually got up to fix me another bowl for lunch, and then i just wrapped it up and put it in the fridge. Then, we went over to our friends house for dinner. I did have two burgers and buns, BUT i only had mustard on them, they were thin, and I didn't add cheese or have ANY chips. Plus I'd only had about 500 cals the whole day otherwise. Lots of fruit today. Now when I want a snack, instead of eating "meal food" as a snack, I eat a serving or *two if im really hungry* of fruit. I can only make myself eat veggies during actual meals. But hey, at least I'm trying!!!

Choosing a goal and sticking to it changes everything.

When I get to each goal, I'm going to reward myself-with a shopping spree!!!!

With good intentions I bought Multigrain Rice Cakes the maple brown sugar variety. Before I knew it I had inhaled six of them. Thank God they are only 50 cals each. I guess it could have been worse.

I had saltine peanut butter sandwiches with butter. I could eat about 10 or more of those, but I only had 5. I still have over 100 calories left so, it's ok.

Whataburger. emoticon

Didn't take the time to pack a lunch this morning, so I intended to hit Subway for lunch. Instead, my pickup magically drove to Whataburger. However, I DID resist the urge to get a Double w/ cheese, like the old days. I'm sure that it will still mess up my fat and calories for today. Time to hit the meal tracker and find out.

I sat and watched my little boy eat a McDonalds Happy Meal and all I had was a coffee. I had a healthy lunch when we got home, BUT I cannot resist that glass of red wine after dinner. I always make sure I'm going to stay within my calorie limits.

Keep smiling.

My ol' man went to BK again. I resisted last night, but couldn't do it today. But I did have portion control. I ate only 1/2 of a whopper jr.- only ketchup. Shared it with my DD, and had a banana and a glass of water on the side.

I haven't done anything today because it's too early, but last night I came across a jar of bean dip and a bag of fritos. Enough said.

2 small slices of cake. It was my birthday today, and I knew I had company coming over, so I made a low-fat angel food cake. I just had two tiny little pieces. I just had enough of a taste that I didn't want anymore.

Oops. Fergot to answer my own question! This temptation was actually last night... but the gf and I went to our friends' house where they cooked us a delicious and otherwise healthy dinner (and we had even saved up some calories through the day for dinner), only to have them bring out the dessert...

...Creme Brulee.

Kinda hard to turn that down when somebody else is cooking for you. ;) Good lord, it was delicious, and we faithfully entered it into the meal tracker. Somehow, the gf managed to stay in her range, but that creme brulee pushed me over the edge on both calories and fat. Whoops!

Since the "what temptation did you resist today?" thread seems to be quite popular, I thought it'd be interesting to have one for those that succumbed to their urges.

What temptation did you NOT resist today? Are you going to view it as a 'reward' for your ongoing success, or do you want to have the will power to resist it next time? How do you plan to deal with the temptation next time?
