My Battle these past couple of days
Thursday, July 25, 2013
If you haven't already heard, I won a prize on Tuesday. I won a year of free ice cream from Cold Stone Creamery.
I LOVE ice cream. It's the one thing I could not give up. Instead of giving it up, I've found compromises. I tend to keep frozen yogurt in the freezer at home. Because of my allergies, the simpler (fewer additives/preservatives) the better. I add fresh fruit to it all the time too.
However, since Cold Stone opened up in town a couple of months ago, I find myself going on occassion.
Anyhow I was surprised to find that I won this.
But I am happy to report, for the second day in a row, the desire to get my bikini body back has won out. Yes, today I had some frozen yogurt at home. I even had enough room in my calories today to have some cold stone. I just didn't go.
I can't say the same for tomorrow. But I can say this - I KNOW eating cold stone will require me to work out even more. I have a specific calorie deficit I am striving for daily and I don't want to compromise it for anything. Especially since it's so easy to make sure I get there - I just have to MOVE MORE to reach it.
Tomorrow is week5 Day2 of my half marathon training - 70minute tempo run. I'm going to have to get up about 5:30 to be able to get it in before work tomorrow morning.
Wish me luck.
