Staying within the lines...
Thursday, March 14, 2013
I have been trying to stay within the lines that Spark set to help me lose weight. I have been over almost every single day since I began here, but 2 days I was super good... Normally, I say I would be more careful tomorrow, but tomorrow never happens in my life.
Today is weird exception. I am below my calorie count and carb count. I am at the right level for fat count and protein count. I am always over in calorie, carbs and fat; and under in protein. I have made every effort to be more conscience about what I eat and how much I eat.
Walking to get dog food at Tarje (my families word for Target), and noticed all the end caps with freakin little Easter candies, cookies, pastries, and other sweet treats... I said a silent prayer and kept walking to a register that had dvds on both end caps. I was fighting hard against temptation of those Cadbury Creme Eggs with the glaze inside.
I kept repeating to myself: I want to stay within my lines. I want to be healthy. I want to fit into a size 14 at some point in time. I want better for myself. I want to live a better life.
I felt this weight of my words lift my spirit and I was able to walk out of Tarje without buying any sweets! I'm so proud of that little accomplishment!!!
Now, If I can stay within my lines for the next month. I want to see a better me in the next few months.
