Every time I start a new diet, fitness plan...anything really. I want results. Yesterday. For an intelligent woman, I have swallowed all of those articles whole. MELT those inches off! Be in your skinny jeans by Friday! What to eat RIGHT NOW for perfect thighs. And, when those inches don't melt, skinny jeans don't fit and there's still cellulite on Friday, I throw in the towel. I've Failed. And then I sink in a self-loathing binge fest. Preferably a chocolate binge fest - but I don't discriminate.
So. Here I am. Day 3 of a) Spark membership, b) 5K Rooking Running program, and c) the Tame Your Sweet Tooth Challenge. The running bit is going fabulously. I love it! It's been years since I've run and I can't imagine why I've put it off so long. The sweet tooth thing on the other hand...Epic Fail. We're talking cronuts (the croissant doughnut), blizzards, chocolate, and 3 (seriously, 3) heavily honeyed pieces of toast. And this is just the first half of day 3, imagine the damage I can do today!
Will this be different? Will I give up when the scale doesn't move on Friday? Maybe. But what I can tell you, is that I just skipped the bag of chocolate chips and chose dates & cheese. This is a note to myself: I've probably got plenty of bad dietary (and otherwise?) bad decisions ahead of me, but if I can make the better choice now and then maybe, just maybe, the scale will move and the dress will fit.
