88 fighting cookies today

Thursday, July 11, 2013

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.

    Hi Barb, I'm Barb too! And yep, I love the cookies. I wonder if it goes along with the name somehow? lol But you're doing really well despite that siren call. And from the sound of things I think you're probably ready for that 5K, especially if you keep exercising like you're already doing. Take care, remember: you're emoticon !

    Don't underestimate yourself, I'm sure you can do a 5k. You just did that walk on the legends course and that was a challenge. It's 3.1 miles, probably a little over 6000 steps, no biggie for you! And step away from the cookies!

    If you are walking 1.5 miles at lunch already, I am sure you could walk a 5k by Aug. 1! It will be challenging, especially if it is hot/humid where you are, but you can do it!
