I passed up a doughnut!

Tuesday, September 10, 2013

I walked past the teachers' workroom today while picking up some kids. I saw a box holding some sweetly glazed pieces of fried goodness. I started to get kinda mad. I mean, people put food in there quite a bit and yet no one ever emails people to let us know that there is food up there. I am down in the "old town" section of the school and don't always make it up to the top. Then the next thought slammed into me: I don't WANT that doughnut! I know, really! I didn't want it. Okay, yes my mouth did, but my hips and hiney didn't. My brain didn't. My sore muscles that worked hard last night, didn't want it either. Woo Hoo! I felt so much better after thinking that. Okay teachers, you can keep those nasty treats up on your "high society" end. (The school has been added onto so many times and I am in the oldest section of the feels like an expanded Z or maze.)

Now, I did eat pizza for dinner. I had made turkey meatballs last night thinking I would get a head start on supper for tonight. They always take so long and hopefully making them the night before would speed up supper and the family wouldn't have to wait as long. Well, this idea only works if you put them into the refrigerator after they cool down. Leaving them on the stove all night doesn't do anyone any good. (drat!!)

I will work out again tonight. I just dreaded it yesterday, which irritates me. I'm weird, I know. :) I did so well at the beginning of the year and keep comparing myself to the way I was then. I've had a pretty bad attitude about working out. Why? I mean really, why? It's kind of stupid if you think about it. I grumbled through the first half of my workout and then by the time I got on the treadmill I was feeling better about my choices. I'm really glad I stuck with it. I can only remember regretting 1 workout. (actually it was because I pushed myself too hard and was VERY sore afterwords...I didn't regret actually working out.) I am a little sore tonight but just enough for my muscles to signal to me that, "yeah, we worked out yesterday." I know I can do it again tonight. :)

I hope the rest of my spark friends are having a successful week!

    I always brought stuff in to the faculty room if I was trying to get rid of it. People will eat it, probably out of boredom or to make themselves feel better. The next time you pass up doughnuts or any other fattening food will be a little easier.

    It's also a matter of getting used to going to the gym. I had to change gyms this summer, and it is harder to go to this one because I'm still not as familiar with the equipment as I was in my old gym (which closed). Again, I think just by going again and again, it will get easier.

    Keep up the good work!

    I'd call that a non scale victory on a number of counts-no donut and worked out even when you didn't feel like it!
