Hitching my Wagon of Weakness to God's Tow Truck of Self-Control
Friday, December 16, 2011
I recently discovered the TV show "Mike & Molly" and loved when Harry told Mike, "Hitch your wagon of weakness to my tow truck of will-power." Too funny.
So I had made some good choices yesterday. Right now I am just trying to get through the holidays without gaining any weight...that is my goal. I'm not trying to lose weight these next two weeks, I'm practicing self-control and awareness.
So, good choices:
Even though there is a cake sitting on my counter I did not touch it except to slice and serve it to children
Even though my candy cabinet is overflowing I did not eat any (I did eat a piece of homemade toffee but I did not touch the pre-wrapped kisses, KitKats, M&Ms, York Peppermint Patties, etc.)
Even though, in a moment of weakness, I bought a Butterfinger candy bar Tuesday, it is still sitting in my purse, untouched.
I went to another instructor's Zumba class
I've been invited to teach Zumba at a new studio so beginning January 2 I will be teaching 3 additional classes plus bringing back 1 of my own so I'll be teaching 5 times a week. This new studio is offering BodyPump as well and I'm hoping to get in there a try a couple of classes. I plan to do the Daniel Fast again in January, however with the Zumba class load I know I need more protein than the fast offers so I will be adding meat and cheese (no dairy other than cheese).
Hopefully between the added exercise and modified diet the
will start ticking the opposite direction. Imagine how much weight I would have put back on had I not continued teaching Zumba all this time!
