May 24 Close Call

Tuesday, May 24, 2011

I'm slowly adding more veggies and eating less carbs. I'm still struggling with getting in my 8 glasses of water per day but I'm not giving up.

I walked a 20 minute mile on the track, did 10 minutes on the elliptical, 5 minutes on the row machine and some strength training. My legs and feet are swollen from non-stop activity over the past 4 days so tomorrow I'm giving my body a rest. Tonight I'm sitting still with my feet up. I'll knit to keep my hands busy.

I've already gotten into the ice cream container. That's my evening treat. I usually measure out 1/2 cup and log my 3 WW points. But for some reason, tonight I took the entire container and a spoon and just said the heck with it. Before I got too far into self-destruction. I stopped. Just like that. I thought about what I was doing and closed the container and put it back in the freezer.

Whew! That was close!

    Nice self-control! I can't have any ice cream in the house except Skinny Cow Ice Cream Sandwiches. I know I will only eat 1 of those in any day.

    Great self discipline to put that ice cream away. I've been there!

    GOOD FOR YOU on putting the ice cream back. You are stronger than your cravings. Good job on the exercising. Putting your feet up and relaxing is a nice reward for moving your body. Keep up the hard work - you are worth every minute of effort.

    Be very careful not to overdo it Hattie. That could be worse than not doing anything at all. Yes, a rest day sounds just the thing for you tomorrow.

    That little imp in the back of your head was saying: 'Wow, I've done so well the past 4 days, yep, I can have stacks of ice cream now'. Rotten little imp. I'm so glad you sent him packing.

    Wow! It feels good to stop before sabotaging yourself. Would you have done that three months ago? And I feel for your feet!

    that was great, you are thinking longer term than the short term satisfaction of the ice cream. that is MAJOR progress on your part. I have had a few of those moments myself, and i find that i am having more of them each day as I make the changes in my life a habit not just a fad. Keep up the GREAt work.
