I turned down eating out!
Friday, February 12, 2010
My fiance J and I are on a crazy schedule again, so we were at the gym at 3:30 a.m. this morning. I love going to the gym at that time - there are less than 10 people there - and for XSport Fitness, that's really rare.
So anyway, I'm having a FANTASTIC workout, doing jumping jacks between lat pull down sets, listening to "I gotta feeling" by the Black Eyed Peas, and then J asks if I want to eat at the Golden Nugget after we work out. Um...no?
This was a HUGE milestone for me. I love going out to eat. When J and I first got together we would eat out almost every day. No wonder we both gained so much weight. It's been really difficult to stop going out. Mentally I feel that I "deserve" going out whenever I want to, even though I know it's horrible for my weight loss goals. Even if I choose healthier items, I know it can't be healthier than what I make at home.
So saying, "No honey, let's just go home" was crazy to hear coming from me! Usually J is the one giving in to my request to go out, but today I was telling him I'd rather go home and eat. It felt great; so empowering, and one step closer to feeling that I can really do it this time!
Wishing you all strength, motivation and the feeling I'm feeling right now!
