Why are there temptations everywhere!!!!!

Thursday, February 28, 2013

So I haven't really told anyone that I'm cutting out snacks. I did tell them about pop and alcohol, but for some reason it seems like if I tell people about the snack portion of this venture they'll either immediately try to sabotage me or go to the extreme to "help" me. I haven't even told the hubs. Because he falls into the "help" category. Except he enjoys that position and would just love to sit in the kitchen and monitor my eating. So what he doesn't know won't kill him. The only thing I did tell him was I was not drinking alcohol until Easter. And we never really have pop in the house so I didn't even have to mention that. Anyways, back to where I was going with this. I work with my dad. We frequently bring each other coffee or little snacks . Here is where my plan is backfiring. He bought some Lemon Shortbread cookies at the gas station this morning and he bought me some too because he knows I like lemon, and shortbread. I took the cookies, I have no intention or eating them but I feel like a horrible daughter if I throw them out. So I think I'm just going to stash them in my purse until I go pick up the little one and let her have them for a snack after dinner. I know he means well and quite frankly I'm surprised I didn't put up more of a fight to not eat them. I still just don't know how I feel about telling people I'm cutting back on sweets. It's not like it's forever, just until I can learn to control myself. Oh well, it's only day 4 into this venture. I'm sure alot more pressing issues will come up than my wonderful Daddy buying me cookies.

Fitness wise, I'm not sure if I'm going to hit 1,000 minutes this month and I really wanted to hit it every month this year. I could totally pull it off if I work out for about 2 hours more tonight. And honestly I could. We only did yoga/stretching this morning in FIIT camp so it's not like I exerted myself or anything. The plan was to workout for and hour and half last night so I only needed my 50 minutes of FIIT and another 30 minutes that night, but I just didn't feel good last night and ended up going to bed early. I guess it just comes down to how bad I want to reach that goal. Do I really want to give in this early in the year?

    I think it's an awsome idea to give the snack to your daughter. That way you're not wasting. I feel ya though. I'm a snacker too.. and I hate to waste food. Stay strong!

    Regarding the fitness minutes- don't see it as a failure- see it as next weeks challenge! Maybe you can hit that 1000 mark early (goal 1).. then try and hit the extra minutes you missed in Feb (goal 2!) Also.. Feb was a short month ;) don't take it so hard!

    I can appreciate the benefits of NOT telling :0) My coworkers actually have cut back on the frequency of the treat bringing but have not actually quit...which is fine...they are entitled to eat whatever they want as much as I am! However they do know that I challenged myself to not eat junk for 2 weeks and that this is actually week 3 and basically they tease me...good naturedly but teasing nonetheless. Actually the teasing makes me want to avoid the temptations even more than if they said NOTHING. emoticon I guess it would be what my mother calls my onery stubborn streak.

    Somedays I do wish they didn't know though...on the days when I am struggling a little! emoticon

    I agree with IAMZBEE about not telling others really building your self control. You get to deal with more"real" situations, you don't have people either sabotaging you or "helping".

    I think you can push hard and get your goal! I have a sneaky suspicion that you will be kicking yourself if you don't do it!! But, you have to listen to your body and do what is right for you!

    I think by you not telling others about your sweets goal, you're really building up your self control and will make your self even stronger and firmer in your "no's"
