17 day streak - My little piggy reward
Wednesday, April 17, 2013
Yesterday I decided that I should reward myself for sparking for two weeks and two days. Funny thing, I didn't even consider food as a reward option. I didn't realize that until this morning. That is a definite shift of things. Probably because all of the healthy food choices I am making now are really satisfying. I am lucky that I love just about all kinds of food, so I am happy with healthy choices of lean meats, fruits, whole grains and vegetables.
I'm planning ahead so that I have good choices available to me all day. I love to graze, so I keep baby carrots and oranges and apples and rice cakes and Laughing Cow cheese handy at work during the day. I'm taking my lunch so that I have something healthy and delicious to enjoy at lunch. Most days I end up at the end of the day with needing to eat another piece of fruit or drink a glass of milk before going to bed to reach my minimum... AND I'm feeling full.... which is important to me... I like volume!
So, no thoughts of milk shakes or raisinettes as a treat... I had a pedicure after work and it was wonderful. Instead of being a little piggy, I pampered my little piggies! It was glorious! I love those massage chairs and the whole experience.
So... both my bathroom scale and my toes are saying...
