That's what I tell myself anyways. Although, for breakfest, I didn't make a good choice. I guess it was out of guilt??
Son had friend stay over, I was up early and made my healthy breakfest. Boy's got up, cooked like crazy, ( I think they were feeding an army). And they set a plate for me. Told them I had eaten. BUT then, the biscuits they made looked so good and they were dissapointed I didn't eat with them,...you can figure it out from there. I am sure that if I hadn't finally sat down and had a biscuit, they wouldn't have cared...but it is what it is. At least, I didn't include butter or gravy on the biscuit. AND I can work this off.
This leads into the past few days, my lack of motivation. I have been doing my walking, but not controlling my urges to eat in the evening. AND not healthy stuff either. SO I kick myself in
the butt now, and move on, It's happened, it's over, I have been honest, and now it's time to move on!
Lesson? we all make mistakes, bad choices and decisions. It's just life, and changing a life style of habits is not an easy task. I am happy with what I have accomplished so far, and wouldn't be human if I didn't expect some bumps in the road. Also, if it's not in the house, it can't be eaten! lol
Cheer's! Drink up your water too, I even neglected that!

Had my Mom over for dinner, and she brought a scrumptious ham, and I provided all the yummy side dishes. My Mom has never filled herself to the point of FULL. And I generally try not to as well. There have been times. But since this new me, I am able to walk away much better. It's really not even a thought now. Smaller portions, and will power. (I really wanted an easter egg, but was full and figured, why now? Why not later for my snack? ) Perfect. And that's what I did. We didn't indulge on sweets either, been trying to keep those out of the house. Not totally, because I feel I can't stop every indulgence. But I am making progress, and so happy for some of my decisions.

AND I WON! I think it's a stress thing....stress eating...and yes, a cheeseburger and small fries from McDonalds...SOUNDED so good. Then I sat at the traffic light and changed my mind. Ate that apple and drank that can of sparkly water! Not only did I save myself from the wrong choice, I saved a bit of money too! Phew....(it wasn't easy, but....it happened)
As far as wall squats...today will mark 25 seconds. OMG.....burn and shake....phew.
Have a good evening!!

This past week hasn't been my greatest week for making the right healthy decisions. I guess I should say, it's been since Thursday evening the choices could have benefited me more. I didn't make good choices in the foods that I ate for dinner, or the beverage that I included with them. I feel once a week is ok, but another set of friends invited us out and well, Friday night, round two. And then lastnight, I gave in to the munchies. AND another glass of wine. SO.....Lesson learned, once a week ok, 3 times, not so much.
On to my fitbit - I was sure I was going to nail my 10,000 steps yesterday, I was so elated that in fact, I looked down to wear I keep it....(hooked to the bra), and Crap, where it is?? Well, it doesn't count when it's on the counter of your bathroom. I can't believe how hooked on that little device I am! SO, I would gestimate with what we were doing that I hit my goal, but have no evidence. Note to self, check bra for devices!
I also am trying a 30 day challenge - Wall squat challenge. Yesterday, I did a 10 second wall squat..... Ok, so I felt that! BUT I hope to continue with the challenge, each day you add time. Today is 15 seconds. I got this!
My stomach is grumbling, time for water and I think some cream of wheat is in order! Have a blessed good week!
Good luck on your goals!
