Good choices = Happy day

Friday, May 10, 2013

I am happy to report the scale revealed a good number on Wednesday! And I continue to be satisfied with my new eating choices.

I had eggs with mushrooms, salsa, a little cheese, and 1/2 an orange for breakfast this morning. Some ww pasta with chicken and broccoli and a carrot for lunch, and then a good dinner.

I baked a double batch of oatmeal cookies to take to my training at work. I was so happy to not eat any cookie dough, not eat any of the warm cookies out of the oven, and not eat any at work today. I had a moment of temptation after lunch, and took 2 on a napkin to my table, justifying that I could count them as part of my lunch. But I remembered my 10 day challenge was choosing to not eat ANY sweets, and I want to honor that goal. So when someone else at the table said they wanted cookies, I just passed them right along.

I wish I could always remember the peaceful and happy feeling I have right now, to have made good choices all day, kept to my goals, and did the 12 minutes of exercise I made time for. It makes me happy!

Eating whatever I want to bury my feelings never makes me feel this way. But the more days I have like this, the easier it is to resist temptation and make peace with food.

    Oh how true. I wish I could remember that doing the right thing ALWAYS feels so good.

    People are so goofy.

    Congratulations - may you have a whole lifetime of days like this.
