Mmmmm…Spinach Dip

Today is the tale of spinach dip.  I was at California Pizza Kitchen with my mom.  She up and orders the dang spinach dip.  I love spinach dip, but know that it’s not the best choice for my current eating plan.  I am so proud of myself.  I had less than 2 whole chips with dip.  This is a feat.  I continued my 15-20 chews and only ate half of my lettuce wraps along with the above spinach dip.  This strategy appears to be working out.  One of the themes of my goals is to make new habits that are sustainable.  I don’t want to try something so strenuous or restricted that I am stressed out.  In addition, I don’t want to fall off the wagon because I feel like I’m being tortured or have unreasonable long term goals.  This is just the first week, but I’m excited about the future.  One day at a time!  Thanks for all of your help!
6 days down, 15 days until it’s a habit.
Much nub and fitness,

Temptation Island

Have you seen that show Temptation Island?  That was theme of the day.  I had to avoid the pitfalls of the yummy doughnuts and gourmet cookies.  For those that don’t know me, I have a huge sweet tooth, so this was huge.  I walked through the door at my mom’s house and was greeted by bacon and potato chips.  I briskly turned on my heels and walked past them.  I am proud.  I avoided all of it!    People keep saying “nothing tastes as good as being lean feels.”  I guess I have to get lean to see if it’s true.  Thanks for all of your help.  I had extra willpower because I didn’t want to admit to all of you that I was eating calorie/fat laden sweets.

I need to make a correction.  I double checked and keep seeing 21 days to create a habit.  So it’s 4 days down, 17 days until it’s a habit:)
