So yesterday was another tough day food-wise. All my meals were planned out perfectly but then my boyfriend went to Costco by himself. During the middle of the day, I get a text message from him saying:
At this point I was freaking out! I thought he had bought a new car or something but that little smilely face at the end of his text tipped me off that it was something evil. So I asked him what he did and come to find out, he bought a 16-pack of Drumstick ice cream cones, another one of my favorites!
"Don't get mad please... but I did submit to my urges n bought something I shouldn't have. U will be so disappointed in me. I'm very sorry. :) "
I swear he's either trying to keep me fat or he's the best will-power strengthener on the planet!
Or rather it always used to happen!
As of last night, no Drumsticks have been eaten (by me anyway... he had two yesterday)! I was so amazing at how much I was looking forward to having my Drumstick... literally counting down the hours in the afternoon till I could have one after dinner. I almost grabbed one out of the freezer but instead decided to have an early dinner of roasted chicken breast, garlic swiss chard and apple sprinkled with cinnamon. I was so filled and satisfied I completely lost my craving for the ice cream and went from thinking of it minute by minute to not even wanting it!
Yup, I'm strengthening my "no thank you" muscle... working it out!
Well to be honest, another super motivating factor came from my scale. I jumped on it in the afternoon - not my normal weigh-in time - right before I was seriously going to get my cone and what do I see...
... find out tomorrow!
But all I can say is if I was pulling that number during the day... tomorrow morning should be even better, right?
