My weight this morning was 219.8 lbs.

I had a good day. I was tempted at work today but I did not give in to the temptation...even though it was one of my favorites! A family member brought in Milk Chocolate Pecan Caramel Clusters. Oh, how I love them! I saw the box arrive and the lady that brought them in said to my co-worker "She's not allowed to have any". She was talking about me because she knows that I have been trying to let go of some weight. I thought to myself "I can do it if I don't see them".

Guess lunch time the box was open and sitting on our staff room table and it had just been opened so they were there starring me in the face through my whole lunch. Every 2 minutes I had a conversation with myself that went something like this..."I can have just one. No you can't have just one, you will eat the whole box if you have just one. Thinking you can have just one is what led you to put on 10.8 lbs over Christmas. You can't have just one! Do you really want to do this to yourself?". I swear I had this coversation with myself over and over and over again. I was strong and did not have one chocolate. When I saw there were 3 left I took the box around to the girls and told them to eat them so I wouldn't. I got rid of one and told a co-worker to hide the rest of them. You gotta do what works, right?

Today was my first day back to work so I don't go to the gym on this day. I plan to go tomorrow after work for some cardio and I am planning to do some running on the treadmill. I can't wait!

Here is what I ate all day...
0600 - egg and egg white, strawberries, 2 slices of ezekiel bread, and my phytoberry drink
0700 - protein shake
1000 - protein shake and apple
1300 - cabbage soup and chicken
1700 - greek yogurt and strawberries
2030 - carrot sticks, green pepper, and salmon

My total calories for the day was 1486, so I was a bit over.
I was also quite a bit over with my protein. I forgot that I was having salmon tonight (salmon has a lot of protein) and I had 2 protein shakes in the am. I will know better for tomorrow.

Nutrition Breakdown
46.02 % protein (175g), 12.43 % fat (21 g), and 41.55 % carbs (158 g)

So that was my day. I feel good that I was able to deny the temptation and I know that it will be easier next time.

My muscles are still a bit sore from blasting my legs the other day. Overall, I feel really good.
Now it is time for me to get some sleep. Have a good night.

  1. WOW....good for you for resisting temptation. I don't have that kind of willpower yet. I always talk myself into 'just 1' But as you stated 1 turns into 2...and so on. I lost 2.8 this week. So I'm doing something right! Keep up the great work.
