Hmmmm It started this morning when I walked past the bagels and cookies. I wasn't hungry - but the cookies were calling me - louder than usual. I got up and broke a piece off a peanut butter cookie. Every time I walked past the kitchen, I broke off a piece of cookie. The silly games we play with ourselves! Anyhow, I probably ate the total of one shortbread cookie and one fourth of a peanut butter cookie (these are big cookies from Panera Bread). UGH!!!!
I walked about a mile and a half for lunch, had a turkey sandwich. I want a cookie again!!! I swear, once I open the door, I lose control! The cookies are gone, so there will be no more cookies - but I still want one!
It has been so hard to get back on track after the holiday weekend. It seems everyday there has been some temptation - some I survived and others I didn't.
So, tonight getting on the treadmill. Eating my chicken & veggies and not caving to any more temptations. I try to remind myself of what my goals are. I even have that non-flattering picture in my purse that I look at - but that silly voice in my head says - you know what you need to do, do it tomorrow. Tomorrow NEVER comes! I need to do it NOW.
Trying to be disciplined and say NO to myself. Ouch! That is hard.
Positive side - have a friend who asked me to do a 5k walk with her on August 1. Not sure I can complete a 5k walk - but I am going to try! I'd like to wear one of those workout shirts - but I really don't want to see myself in anything stretchy and clingy yet - and if I keep eating cookies, I never will!!!
NO MORE COOKIES BARB!!!!! You are not the cookie monster.
