Thank you for stopping by to perv on my blog, as I fight myself to change my old habits and make new ones to get fit. I don't get it right all the time, but I'm still here and I'm still working at it.

Wednesday FULL of WIN!

I started to fade today...and had thoughts of burgers dancing through my head....so just before lunch and I did this:

NOT GET A FATTY LUNCH. I will eat the lunch that I have here.
Because I’m better than fat.
Love Me~

Ate my lunch and it was great (BNS mac&cheese, lemon yogurt and a plum). This afternoon I considered getting a treat - and instead ate my Coconut Larabar. AlsoYum.

After work I had to pick up some bits for dinner.... and that put me right in the middle of one of my worst areas...The Grocery store - all by myself...the perfect time to get chocolate so that I can eat it in the car and NO ONE KNOWS.... (but me - and all of you of course). Grocery stores are a terrible place for me - those ROWS of chocolate bars while you are standing there checking out, alone in the car to scarf down the chocolate like a starving wolf....

I managed to resist!~ I bought two packs of Extra gum instead (a la Biggest Looser). Woot!

However, ice cream was in the basket.

:( NOT GOOD...not good at all!!

I drove home thinking about the ice cream...and when I got home I put it in the freezer - telling myself that I would have some tonight and then throw the rest out. Then 15min later I went into the kitchen, took it out of the freezer and.... I threw it in the garbage. $5.00 is not worth me eating 1,000+ calories of ice cream. So right NOW there is a tub of ice cream melting in my garbage! YAY!!

Also.... my main surprise today was my daily Weight In. I hopped up on the scales and expected to see something other than this:


No change from yesterday, that was a very nice surprise!

Wow, Tammy! I love the message to yourself. That's a great idea. And passing up the ice cream AND chocolate?!! Way to GO!

Ice cream is my biggest downfall....I applaud you for the decision you made to throw it away.
