Today is day 7 of my streak!

So proud to have made it to one whole week of being on track...although I almost blew it yesterday! I went grocery shopping, and then on the way home I stopped at a fast food drive thru to get something to bring home for hubby's lunch. I wasn't hungry and I didn't have a craving. Even though I was going to a fast food place, I wasn't thinking of getting something for myself. (Partially because I don't think of fast food as actual FOOD. It doesn't even smell like food to me, it just smells like grease.)



But anyway, when I pulled up to the drive thru speaker, there was no one ahead of me so I was able to order without waiting. As I scanned the menu board to look for the combo number I wanted to order, I saw a sign next to the menu board, touting milkshakes. And suddenly, I decided I was going to have one. So I ordered a combo for hubby, and then the voice over the speaker said "Will that complete your order?"

I hesitated for a split second. Then I took a deep breath and said "Yes, I'd also like a straw smallberry milkshake."

As soon as I realized what I'd said, I got the giggles. And the voice over the speaker said "Could you repeat that?" I swallowed my giggles and said "Nothing else, thanks." She gave me my total, and I drove up to the window, still fighting the giggles.

I chuckled a bit during the whole drive home. "Straw smallberry milkshake?" I wasn't laughing just because it was kind of funny. I was laughing from relief! I was saved from going off my streak by a slip of the tongue!



That silly little tongue twister jolted me back to reality for a moment. Just long enough for me to realize that I needed to say no to that milkshake, and be my own hero. I wanted to be strong more than I wanted that milkshake. Don't get me wrong. I'm fine with having an occasional treat. But a small milkshake would have had around four to five hundred calories...and its just not worth it to me!

I didn't feel deprived because I didn't have that milkshake. I felt strong and in charge, and so proud of myself for staying on track...even if I needed a slip of the tongue to help me do it!

    wow it really got me thinking about certain times when it seems very (non hurtful to your diet) when you give in to some temptation just because it is there and easy to fall into it. This time I will call on my full awareness and talk to my brain as to what do I really want to do instead of entertaining the thought even if just for one second. I know I can fall for it easily . Grate job.

    That is funny. Good job on passing it over when you realized your tongue twister mistake. I agree that as good as they are, they are just not worth the amount of calories that I would have to log for it!
Great job! Stay strong.

    Excellent blog! Two weeks ago, my grandson wanted McD's. I was so sick afterwards that
it isn't worth doing again.

    I totally agree with your experience! I've had a lot of slip ups this past week, but yesterday I stayed home and got ready for the week with lots of healthy food. And instead of going to the store and buying junk food, cuz that's what I was craving, I stayed home and kept myself busy. Sometimes you just have to do that, right?
