It's All Up To Me

Wednesday, April 10, 2013

I woke up achy from an intense workout with trainer boy the night before. Love it! I was ready to face the day knowing my muscles were repairing themselves and making me stronger.

Was it the cold, bleary weather, did I sleep too hard? I felt lethargic all day with heavy heavy eylelids. That ready-to-face-the-day attitude quickly withered!

Someone brought in sweets to work which usually never happens. I'm in week three of the SP curbing my sweet tooth challenge but I joined in the festivities anyway. I convinced myself it was okay because I really wasn't craving the snack, I was just being polite and fit people can eat a cupcake now and again.

I was fine for a while but after lunch, I wanted another cupcake. Instead I poured myself a large cup of green tea and had a special K fruit crisp. Yes, it's sweet but less calories than the cupcake. Crises averted. I did not have a second cupcake. HEAR THE ANGELS SING!

The afternoon dragged endlessly. The large auditorium I usually take walking breaks in was occupied all day. I was stir crazy all afternoon. I kept getting up every hour and walking all around the building.

I read blogs and spark people articles for a bit to distract myself. Most were about choices; it's-all-up-to-me type reading.

DH had a frozen pizza going when I got home. "YES!" I was SO ready for food and an NCIS marathon! I remembered the blogs I read earlier and the nutrition info I read a couple months ago on the pizza.

Did you know that the serving size for a frozen pizza is only 1/16 of the pizza??! It took me a while after reading that to cut myself down to two slices.

Tonight, I made myself a salad and only had one piece of pizza. HEAR THE ANGELS SING!! Did I really do that?!

DH fell asleep on my lap and I started to doze as well. I took a peak at my pedometer... ACK!

So I got up and walked in place while I washed dishes and got breakfast, lunch and snacks together for tomorrow. Still a ways to go on steps so I walked in place watching Modern Family. I made 10,000 steps on one of the laziest, most challenging days I have had in a long time.

It is indeed all up to me! I am going to bed now. I've been looking forward to this moment since I left for work this morning.

Nighty night all!
