any small victory is progress in my book
Sunday, January 10, 2010
I don't brag often, but I am just so motivate & pleased with myself that I wanted to write it down for the world to see. Becuase my birthday is the 6th I don't ever start my new years resolutions till the 7th. I always go to a nice fancy dinner with my bestfriend on my birthday & I don't want to be hampered, besides it only happens once a year, I deserve it.....
Anyways, I know how hard it is for me to resist just the little offers of this or that, so I have to go all or nothing. Therefore, if I say to me, "no more mcdonalds" that means "NO MORE, NOT EVEN A TASTE, NOT EVEN JUST A FEW LEFTOVERS FROM MY FRIEND WHILE WORKING NONE, ZIP, ZERO" I have to take a no tolerance policy. Anyways, this week I have committed to a healthy menu & I have been following it, packing my food, eating healthy snacks & eating small portions every 3 hours. What a difference that has made. Friday when I came to work, I was offered a handful of hot, salty, greesy tater tots & I said " no thank you".
Wow, I felt so empowered, I can do this. Then Yesterday, my friend shannon brought me frenchfries from mcdonalds ( my major downfall) & once again it was "no thank you". Even though they were brought for me, I refused to allow obligation to entrap me! Another victory!..... today there are chocolate creamcheese cookies on the front counter at work... wow! Again, my self control kicked in & I pulled out applesauce... I feel so determined. I know I can do this, with each small victory, I get stronger.
