So yesterday was a little more challenging than I had anticipated. All I wanted to do in my downtime @ work was eat! I'm proud of myself though, because I didn't give in to the temptations. My partner teased me most of the day, but it was all in good fun. I didn't grab any Starbucks, though I had multiple opportunities. I also didn't get a Caramel Apple Sundae from McDonald's when presented with the opportunity. I researched the nutrition facts, and decided that I didn't want to waste my values on something that would only satisfy me temporarily. I was so proud of myself, because that took a ton of willpower. I did end up eating half of a white chocolate and macadamia nut cookie from Subway, as I was informed that it wouldn't hurt me, because I can't change all my habits overnight. I didn't get up and go to the gym this morning. I really wish I would have, but my hubby said he didn't want me to burn myself out my first week, between the diet and the exercise. I know I won't go in the morning, because I'm working late tonight, and the gym hours aren't as flexible on Sundays. So I know Sundays will be my "lazy days." But that's ok, because I can do my Biggest Loser 10 minute Cardio Blast on my "off" days! I feel so much better, both mentally and physically, and I am looking forward to a brand new me by next spring!
