I said no to Oreo cookies. I did allow for just one in my mealplan today. But I asked my family to hide them because the temptation was too much. Sometimes ive found it easier not to even have the one cookie.

I said no to sharing a deep dish double cheese, sausage and onion pizza - it actually sounded kind of gross!

Today I said no to Chips Ahoy cookies, even though I handed them out to the kids twice! Also, no to a bun on my bratwurst.

Yesterday there were brownies around the office. I refused to even have a taste. It just starts a chain reaction of bad choices that isn't worth it!

Well I am so proud of myself today. Eating healthy and real food has become the way I eat now. I had some errands to run this morning so I did not get the chance to prepare my lunch as I always do. I stopped at the grocery store and grabbed a FROZEN organic meal..lol even though it said real food I could not get myself to eat it..its processed is all that I could see when Id stare at it. So I called my daugher and told her what my problem was and she brought me a subway sandwich...Now I am a happy and realize that this has finally become my way of eating.....on my way to a new me!

I can do this, I will do this....

I said no to ordering in instead of cooking... came soooo close and I didn't really do all that much cooking since it ended up mostly being things I had on hand like fruit and peanut butter and canned chicken on a tortilla but it was still way better for my diet than that pizza even if I'd only eaten a couple slices :)

We had a Taco party. Usually my son likes fresh tortillas (I get the uncooked ones at Walmart). I love them but I know they are high in carbs and fat. I did not save any spaces for them today. So I just had a small salad with non-fat chipotle dressing, chicken; also I had a cup of refried (no fat) beans with it.

I am really proud of all of us! We said NO to cake and cookies and a LOT of work food (that used to be one of my problem areas.) No sugary soda, no vending machine food, no quick store food. No is a great word.

We also said NO to feeling bad later, feeling bloated or guilty or (for me, not for any of you, I'm SURE - taking that guilty feeling and smothering it in more unhealthy snacks.)

Have a great day saying NO.

I said NO to staying late at work today, although I probably should have said YES there... We are awfully busy, but I will go in around 6 am this coming Monday.

Okay, while the above is true, let's get a bit more serious here.

Said NO to a fourth cup of coffee -- don't need the jitters. Had white tea instead.
Said NO to chicken cordon bleu served at work, to supplement the healthy food I'd brought in. (My lunch was a a salad, with an eggplant/pastured ground pork/sauteed mushroom dish. Instead I supplemented with a couple extra salad ingredients to round my own out.)



Got rid of the ticker cuz my scale decided to flatter me unduly. I haven't re-gained, just got a better, honest, scale.

Just because you steam it, doesn't mean you can't add herbs and spices. (A gripe at those insipid restaurant "healthy choice" menu selections.)

Last night I said "NO" to the late night snacks in my refridgerator. I even found myself after everyone was in bed, I was standing in front of the fridge with the door open, staring inside. I said "NO" becuase I realized I wasn't hungry, I was tired and stressed, but not hungry. Every night that I can do this, I know is one step closer to my goal... I know my late night snacking was derailing me.

I said No to peanuts. My son got some from 7-11 as a reward for doing well at an appointment. We always go after the appointment. Well, they were sitting there, calling my name. I literally picked a few up a couple of times and put them back. If I would have eaten 1, I would have eaten the whole bag.

I said yes, because i worked out 2.5 hours yesterday, haha.

I said yes to two tbsp cookie butter, 1/4 cup sesame sticks, 1/4 cup of honey roasted peanuts, and a chocolate lara bar. A ton of fat but all healthy fats.
