Yahoo it's Friday.
Yesterday I was craving an old favorite...a McDonald's Fish Meal, soda included. I was picturing myself going in, ordering, and sitting down and enjoying every bite of it. Then I would go and do some extra exercise to compensate for the over-indulgence. I decided to go on the nutrition tracker and program it into my daily food count...I would make it fit I told myself. I'd cut back on something else so that I'd stay within my points. But earlier this week I promised myself I'd eat at least three veggies everyday this week if I ate the meal, I wouldn't be able to eat all the fruits and veggies and milk in without going over. Also, if I broke this promise it might lead to destruction. I had every intention on getting that meal but something...no, SP thoughts, kept creeping into my head. The articles I'd read, all the hard work I'd done this month, the support, and all the success stories of Sparkers kept flashing through my mind.
I made it through the day without even giving a thought to those golden arches when I passed them. Instead I made my own version of fish filet, no tarter, bread, or soda and it only cost me 230 calories. I even got in the three veggies.
I'm not saying I'll never have a MD's fish meal, but for me to have avoided it is something I wouldn't have done before my Sp journey.
