A Defining Moment
Saturday, July 20, 2013
As I finish my first week of my new nutrition and fitness regime, I reflect back on how my week went and I see a defining moment for me. My husband and I went to our favorite Chinese restaurant for dinner on Wednesday night. Now normally, I would order Chinese tea (with lots of sugar added), eat an entire bowl of fried noodles by myself (with lots of duck sauce for them), wonton soup, an egg roll, General Tso's Chicken, and sometimes a desert.
This time, when we went, I was very conscientious about what I chose to eat. Instead of having the tea, I had water. I ordered egg drop soup and shrimp in white sauce with steamed vegetables and brown rice. I ate half the serving of brown rice which was probably about 1/3 cup.
My husband asked me if I was going to have any of the fried noodles (they're my absolute favorite because they make their own noodles and they're so light and crispy!). I told him "no". "Not even one?" he asked with a surprised look on his face.
That's when I knew this was a defining moment for me. It proved to me that this time is different for me. That I'm motivated and determined and am willing to make choices that are going to keep me on my path to health and fitness. Yeah, me! Go Sue, Go Sue!
