Staying on Track....

Saturday, September 24, 2011

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! emoticon

    Sounds like you are off to a good start! Saying no is sometimes difficult, but we know it's what's best for us! Because after all, snacking is just a habit and definitely something we don't need to do! emoticon

    Sometimes its hard to eat healthy when so many opportunities present itself. I'll say this to you, the more you overcome these temptations the easier they will be to not be troubled by them. Stay strong. May u have good success. Be blessed!
