Feeling and doing great, even with distractions!
Wednesday, July 10, 2013
This is the first time in my life that I have committed to a healthy lifestyle and exercising habits, and have stuck to it. I have been feeling great lately! It has been tough, though; I work at Wetzel's Pretzels. It has been two weeks since I made a promise to myself and my co-workers that I would not touch another pretzel ever again. They have been very supportive(although, most of the girls are on diets, so it's easy for them to tell me no).
When I would come into work, I would go straight for the pretzel case and grab a full bag of pretzel bitz(which is a pretzel and a half, mind you). After that, and two cheddar cheese cups later, I would make myself a huge cheese meltdown pretzel. I would then demolish that with a cup of pizza sauce and a cup of cheddar cheese sauce. When I was finally done eating all of that, I would feel so bloated and disgusting. I would have to finish the rest of my eight-hour shift feeling full and tired. It was turning in to an almost every day thing(I work five days there). If I knew I didn't have to work the next day, I would bring home pretzels to have on my days off. It sounds crazy and it was! Who obsesses over pretzels that much? I even got my boyfriend into the habit of eating pretzels all the time. He has asked me almost every night I've worked in the past two weeks for a pretzel and I keep telling him no! I've brought him home one, just one time. Not another one since. I'd rather not see him eating one of my favorite foods in front of me, ya know?
I can't wait to keep updating you all on my progress. I am very excited!
