The power of "No thank you."

Tuesday, June 15, 2010

I went on a vacation with my hubby and daughter last week. We stayed 2 nights at a waterpark resort in the Wisconsin Dells, then drove to IL to see family. We ate out every day of the trip, I was off-line and not tracking my nutrition, and only worked-out one day.

The results: I lost 1.2 pounds!

How did I do it? I said "No thank you."

I was offered cinnamon rolls with cream cheese, decadent desserts on the restaurant menus, homemade iced sugar cookies, brownies, and a wide assortment of other "treats." And I said "No thank you."

It's not always easy to say, and today I was faced with another challenge. At work, we had a scrumptious free catered meal, and I passed and ate the healthy lunch I packed. I'm glad I did.

Those three easy words are sometimes hard to say, but I'm glad every time I do.

    I guess I wasn't as good to saying no thanks this past week. We were out camping and the group wanted to eat out every evening. It is really hard to figure cals. in resturant foods esp. when there is no baked or grilled items. At least I was able to have a 0 loss/gain through it all!

    Keep up your great work!
