This is my second week and I'm determined to pull an awesome number for weigh in this next Monday. It's day two of my new vegan, gluten free, limited sugar, no caffeine lifestyle. Now, I did great all morning and afternoon. I had my steel cut oats in the morning, my 36 oz of homemade green juice and almonds and some crackers. I was even good through dinner, no issues., even turned down dessert.
It was after dinner I went to make my husband and bagel and cream cheese for his breakfast tomorrow. I grab the cream cheese and then opened the new bag of cinnamon and raisin bagels. The aroma that escaped the bag was amazing and I could imagine what they tasted like. I pulled one apart and it was very soft and fresh, I wanted to eat it. Now, mind you I'm a celiac and cant eat it even if i wanted too unless I wanted to be Ill and have hives and swell up. I will be honest and say that a thought went through my head that it might be worth it. " Just one bite" I stood there contemplating the repercussions of this "one bite".
I decided that it wasn't worth ruining the progress I had made and it would set me back greatly. I also reminded myself of the agreement for my weight loss competition with my husband. There was no way I could let him win. He would have to pin me down, hog tie me and throw me off a cliff before I let him win. Even then I would come back with a vengeance. So to overcome the lust of the bagel and still accomplish my goal, I decided to stick my head in the bagel bag. I took a few deep breathes and realized how ridiculous I looked.
Food has this amazing hold on many people, even myself. I like to think I'm strong, but we all have weak moments. It just depends on what we do in our weakest moments that will help decide where we are going. Even if we fall we have to get back up again and try. We all have a choice to make, Bagel or no bagel?
Here's to another day in the right direction!
