I still haven't eaten any peanut butter, so if we have another challenge I'm in good shape!

I'll be honest, three apple empanadas Wensday and two this morning. Those things are 310 calories each. When my son works until close at Taco Bell, he often brings some home. I should have said "put those in the freezer."

Silly me!!! I forgot this was a 5 day challenge. I had one muffin left from before the challenge, and I threw it away yesterday because I thought it would spoil by the end of the challenge. It wasn't hard throwing it away.

This challenge forced me to find something good to eat that is healthy. Well, I rediscovered my love of balsamic vinegar and salads. When you are busy, and don't take the time to really plan or think; the lettuce and tomato on a burger becomes your veges for the entire day. Lol

Thanks for the challenge. I will not buy any muffins this weekend. I want to see how long I can keep it going.

Day 2 no muffins. Yesterday I ate lays chips. I hadn't had them in 2 months. It was like giving up muffins, but going back to an old habit. Fortunately they have lost their appeal. I did not get the same satisfaction. I had to look at the date because they tasted stale. Date Nov8th.

So hopefully the muffins will lose their appeal after these 5 days.

Ouch - this really hurts! BUT I'm going to give up any form of "sweets" - candy, cake, pie, etc. - they are my "up-fall" - I can't say "downfall" because nothing goes down when I eat them!!!! This is exactly what I need to make me focus on NOT eating them.

No snacking after dinner.

Happiness is remembering what I really want.
Laughter is the best medicine. The best things in life are free.

Learn to say 'no' to the good so you can say 'yes' to the best.

Dream with no action = wishful thinking
Action with no plan = chaos
Dream + action + persistence = success

The ego tells me you can't do it. The spirit tells me I can.

Each time I say "no" to impulse eating, I will visualize fat melting off my body.

I am addicted to Hills Bro Sugar Free Cappuccino. I usually drink several (2+ a day). I will give up one of those for the next few days and instead replace it with a fruit of my choice.

Wow, I gave up peanut butter weeks ago. I too ate it right out of the jar with my cutest little spoon. Sometimes I would add a little jelly to the jar. It just hit me one day how many calories were in one tbsp. I stopped buying it. Let's see how long it will last.

Ok, I guess I will give up muffins. I love pumpkin muffin and cran/orange. I got upset because twice this week DD ran out of pumpkin muffins. I even let them know that was not my favorite DD store. LOL Gosh how silly was that. I can hear the fat on my thighs giggling.

I'm so glad I am not the only one who eats peanut butter straight from the jar. It also goes with my apple slices, oatmeal and sandwiches, not to mention the peanut sauce on my tofu.

I go thru different cravings and now it is peanut butter. I eat it right out of the jar! I will give it up and hopefully will become used to not having it, and won't want it anymore.

So far i haven't had any pb. It's been 3 days now.

This, I can do and it will be hard for me.

I will give up ALL peanut butter, whether it's real peanut butter that I buy for the family like JIF, or whether it's my vegan peanut butter that I have to mix up from a powder. (I have a jar of that in the cupboard. Better hide it now!)

5 day Challenge 24th Sept - 28th Sept
Note: This is a 5 day challenge only!! It runs Monday through Friday of this week only.

For these 5 days I want you to give something up!! You are to nominate at the start of the challenge what you will give up and record it in this thread. It might be snacks after 8pm, It might be chocolate, it might be cookies etc but it should be something that will help you get toward your goal. You decide.
Record what you are going to give up and then record if you were successful on each of the three days..



Everyone smiles in the same language.
