Since I have had Heather, my eating habits have not been terribly under control...until the last few days. And today has been especially wrought with goodies at work.
If you haven't heard, my work opened a fitness center on site which makes exercising SO much easier and convenient. I have been using it for a while now...since about May 15th. But even with exercising, I have been strugging with my eating habits and the scale had not been cooperating much.
It occured to me the other day that I'm putting in all of this work on the treadmill for nothing because I'm ruining all my work with the excess calories I've been eating. So gradually I've been buckling down at home and at work and the last 3-5 days I've really gotten things under control and have stayed within my calorie range.
But today has been extra special because free food has been flowing like lava around work. I have turned down Panera Bread bagels, danishes (the cream cheese is especially good), yogurt with strawberries and granola (which isn't necessarily bad but I couldn't find nutrition information on it), and just now I turned down cake. The only thing I "caved" to was a glass of orange juice and I only did that because I knew it was healthy. So I am super proud of myself for this new mindset.
The funny thing is that it was so easy to turn all of this food away because of my lunchtime workouts. I simply don't want to ruin the work I've put into it. Before, if I had eaten something that was calorie dense I would just tell myself that I could work it off later but later never came. This fitness center at my work is becoming quite a blessing for me.
Best of luck to everyone and their goals. I finally feel like I'm going to be able to re-achieve mine since having the baby.
