Tricky Thoughts: Day One

Wednesday, March 20, 2013

1.) So this morning I've already been tempted to give up. I went to dinner with my boyfriend yesterday and we were going to split a tiramisu but the waitress just brought our check without asking if we wanted dessert! I had this thought cross my mind that I could just swing by later this week and get one. I had to talk myself down and decide that that's not a good idea just starting my new plan to stay under 1600 cals and track and measure. I started telling myself the same old things - I look just fine. Who cares. But *I* care! I want to feel good and healthy and confident!

2.) Thinking to myself I'll never be able to do it. Look at all the times I've given up before. I really am addicted to food! It's crazy!

3.) So it's the afternoon, and I've got two hours left of work and I agreed to do overtime because we're so overloaded with work. I'm feeling really tense and I just thought about how nice it would be to just shove some chocolate in my face. But I'm going to drink water and wait for dinner time. Not sure what I'm going to make for dinner but we'll see. I don't want to work overtime!

4.) My oldest daughter took her sister to the store to buy ice cream. I'm not going to have any because I'm saving myself for my fruit smoothie later. I did ask them to get me some good straws though. ;)

Ok, enough for the day. I made it, and it wasn't so bad. I'll see you again tomorrow!

    I wouldn't mind overtime if I could do it from home. I had a big ol' breakfast this morning so lunch is pretzels and hummus. Even though I wanted chocolate. I might break down this afternoon anyway. emoticon

    Maybe that waitress was a "secret sparkler" so she didn't ask you if you wanted dessert on purpose! LOL! Good for you for staying strong and avoiding all the goodies! Even maintenance must be tough ( or tougher) Can't wait till I get there . Congrats!!
