unbelievable!

Saturday, April 20, 2013

So, today, I was concerned.

We had an "event" today. I had no idea what to expect. It was at a hospital (it was a NICU reunion party, so I was hoping for healthy.

So, we get there, and get food for my little one. Chick fil a chicken nuggets, apple slices, grapes, a huge veggie tray, mini condoms, cupcakes and these giant, amazing looking chocolate chunk cookies.

Chick fil a nuggets are the best, because though they are fried, they are whole chicken chunks, not garbage. So, I got her 3, grapes apple's and carrots, all her favorites. Then I got myself some nuggets, fruits and veggies, and ignored the junk food. I wanted the junk food. My, ahem, special time, is here, and I want junk then more than any other time.

So, I kept ignoring it. My husband even ate a cupcake, and I avoided it. I kept saying that I hoped the cookies would go away, because they looked amazing!

We had a blast, had pictures taken, and I didn't eat any cookies!
I did give into my cravings later and we had pizza for dinner, but after it all, I stayed in my calorie range!

Go me! I'm actually doing things right!

I'm surprised at my success, but so thrilled that those things that I'm learning good real habits. Thank you Sparkpeople. This is working!

    Thanks for sharing! I am sharing your joy in the resisting temptation category. I have been following your blogs and trying to follow your footprints... I am so happy to thank you for
Showing me a daily commitment blog... What it looks and sounds like. Yippee for you, and yahoo for me! I have struggled for months to locate my motivation, now, I just do it like you show.... One day, one moment... Doing something in a new way instead of falling back into old, comforting , fattening habits. THANKS! I resisted temptation for three days in a row! A new record, a start of a spark streak. In my case, I resisted candy. My faves are cookies, so I applaud you on the cookies, but I believe the mini condoms would not have been so hard to resist! Ha Ha! Your typo was a wicked laugh :)

    Okay - I might be ready for bed - but I read "mini condoms" - what is that? And you gave it to your kid to eat???

Just curious - and hoping to share a laugh.

By the way - that is really great. Temptation is hard enough - but when you have those things practically thrown at you - it is much harder to not have one - and then another. It definitely shows you are making progress!
