I got so busy yesterday I didn’t have time to post!
Well, it was weigh in Friday!! After riding my bike to work every day, running 3.2 miles 3 days and doing the boot camp, I was hoping for a big loss, but I will take what I can get!
I lost 1 more pound! I was hoping of course it would have been more BUT, it is still a number I haven’t seen in a long time and it is still in the right direction and I feel great about adding exercise regularly to my healthy eating plan.
If I can keep it up, the results will come!!
One of the things I have been doing great at is not eating food at work (that I didn’t bring). We have reps come in all the time with cookies, muffins, donuts, etc… Every Thus. there are luncheons, which the reps leave the leftovers and I usually am the one to help them clean it up and we always put the leftovers on the “food counter” and my co-workers will eat the rest.
For the longest time, if there was food out, I would usually have something. Whether it was a cookie, or left over pizza etc…
This is a giant cookie that was leftover. I put all the other leftovers out, but saved this for myself. I even brought it to my desk. I stared at it…I really wanted it….I even looked up the calories for it! 450 calories for this cookie!! I still wanted it…..
But I thought about all the hard work I was doing. Usually I would rationalize it by saying “It’s just one cookie.” But one cookie turns into more things I shouldn’t be eating which in turn sabotages my weight loss goals.
So do you know what I did??
I put it back on the table, waited several minutes and some one else took it.
I felt so great about not giving in!
I would like to know how other people handle situations like that at work or wherever when some one is always bringing in stuff, or there are luncheons, or donuts, etc… Do you just say no, do you treat yourself once a week, how do you stay on track??
