I had myself a little victory this morning, that I want to share. After Ty & Corey were on their way for the day, I went back to sleep and had a crazy dream. The dream itself was pretty boring basically just about a revisiting a house Corey & I supposedly live in. The weird part was the emotions/feelings I woke up with after having the dream. I was just in and eerie mood. I was still soooo tired too. But I got up and went down for breakfast. As I stood there pondering the array of cereals, my eye was drawn immediately to the sugary colorful blend of Marshmallow Mateys that we purchased for Ty. My eye glanced over to the bland looking Mini Spooners that I knew I should eat, but as my arm reached up to grab the container it narrowed in on the Mateys. My mind went a million thoughts a second coming up with ideas like, "It's suck a blah morning, I need sugar. I'm so tired, the sugar would do me good. It would be sooo yummy. Then it flashed back to a thought I had yesterday, "One time I'm just going to have to bite the bullet, restrain myself from the sugar and make the healthy choice. When I do, things will start to get a little bit easier." Right now was that moment. I removed my hand from the handle of the Mateys, slid it to the right and took down the Mini Spooners. I put my bowl on the scale measured out my portion, measured out my milk and made the healthy choice. I'm proud and ready for another challenge.
** So the rest of the day was actually pretty good too. Did 20 min program on the treadmill burning about 170 calories. I slipped up with some Christmas goodies again. Darn those Christmas goodies! There is a good reason I don't make them. This way at least I can only slip up with them when visiting my parents.
