Today was great! Initially I wanted to go for breakfast at the cafeteria, but realized that the veggie sausage patties were 80 calories, and that I could save those for another day. I had veggie chili and rice leftovers for lunch today, and directly avoided the piece of leftover chocolate cake in the fridge at work. After work and some research, I checked the nutrition for dinner and decided I'd rather not have a 300 calorie quesadilla that I wouldn't particularly enjoy anyway.
Instead, I just got a veggie delight sandwich from Subway, and was happy with that. They had a display with cookies and a caption that said 'C'mon, One Won't Hurt.' It made me so angry! One would hurt me! One might give me permission to have a second, and a third, to erase the goals that I put out for myself. Eventually, farther down the line, one cookie won't hurt, but at the beginning of my lifestyle change, I want to do the best I can and not fall into temptation.
I was wearing my Gryffindor shirt today that says 'What Can't I Do?' I kept repeating that to myself as I walked past buff guys running, as I said no to the cookie, as I huffed up four flights of stairs to my room, as I completed two SparkPeople videos. I am going to kick my own butt into shape! I'm not doing this for other people, I'm doing this to make me happy!
