March 20, 2013--Fighting the Devil Inside
Wednesday, March 20, 2013
Good morning--This morning I did my usual of getting up early, going to the Y and doing 60 minutes of cardio. After my shower, I went to the refrigerator to pack my lunch and snacks for work. Well that little fat devil started whispering in my ear "Do you really want to eat that stuff again? You lost weight this week, why not just forget to pack this stuff and go out for lunch today. You can get snacks from the vending machine because they have baked lays and sugar free cookies. You have been working so hard, you deserve this". SERIOUSLY!!! I packed my lunch and snacks. Before I probably would have shut the door as the first idea popped into my head.
Has anyone else struggled with themselves like this?
Good news is that when I weighed in for our work challenge, I have lost 13.75 pounds according to that scale and lost 5 inches. I was so excited and was so happy I didn't listen to the devil inside. This loss of inches and pounds is going to keep me motivated to stay on track. Also, I am meeting a new spark friend tomorrow at the Y and have possibly found a fitness buddy. Can't wait.
Have a great day and get some exercise in, make good choices and enjoy life.
