Proud of Myself
Friday, March 06, 2009
Today was a great day for me. I actually thought it was going to not go so well, but I am really proud of myself. I started the day feeling hungry and wanting to eat, and I did go to the snack machine and get myself a package of Grandma's Cookies - one of my faves.
Anyhow, after my one package of cookies, I wanted nothing but to get more. I really, really, really wanted to get another package - or 20. I did end up eating all of the sugar free hard candy I had in my room, but I did not get another package.
I also did not eat my after school snack. I went to a spin class after school and had fruit and salad for dinner. With all of that, I end the day at 1803 (not subtracting my workout). That is only 3 calories over the upper end of my Spark calorie range.
This is a very exciting day for me. Normally, if I go much over 1500 calories, then I don't stop until I hit well over 2000. If I have 1 treat, it normally turns into many. I usually can't help myself.
Yay! 1 small victory!
