A funny thing happened

Thursday, February 09, 2012

A funny thing happened this week. With the help of a new burst of resolve I adhered very closely to my program. I ate my planned meals, no deviations. I didn't have any in-between meal snacks. I didn't eat any candy. I didn't drink any soda. I exercised. And, I still had a good day.
I didn't:
-die of starvation from not snacking
-regret eating my packed lunch instead of fast food
-collapse from exhaustion from my workout
-fall asleep at my desk from lack of caffeine
-go into a chocolate deprivation shock
I did:
-have a great day
-feel good about myself and my choices
-got everything done and still had plenty of time for me after I worked out

So, now I know that those inner voices that tell me that I NEED chocolate, I NEED caffeine, I NEED a snack, I NEED fast food or I NEED to skip my workout are nonsense. I can have a perfectly happy & fulfilled day without any of those things.

    Call your local bookstore and ask if they have the new EW mag and treat yourself to buying at least 1 (or all 3!) of the covers. My local barnes and noble put them out today and had covers 1 (I&N) and 3 (all 3) so I went there and got cover 3. Eeep!

    I think you definitely deserve to treat yourself to something that will help you feel good but won't break your diet.

    Good work! I'm so glad to see things coming together for you!
