Workin' it out!

Wow... remember late last month I said I was taking a break from blogging?  Well I've been so amped up with momentum and excitement that I want to blog... like actually make time to do it.  Cool...

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:
"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.  :) "
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!

 I swear he's either trying to keep me fat or he's the best will-power strengthener on the planet!

I laughed so hard cause I thought it was going to be something outrageous.  So anyway, yesterday afternoon I made the conscience decision to have one later that night because "I deserved it cause I've been doing so well with the diet"... plus the caramel vanilla cone was literally calling my name through the freezer door.  Well let me tell you, once I make up my mind to cheat, it ALWAYS happens.  Not always... A.L.W.A.Y.S!!

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?

LOL..that is so funny. My bf does the same thing but with black forest cake ice cream...Good job for not cheating. Excited about your progress.

YAY! I find sometimes when I give myself permission to have something AND plan for it ... I don't want it so much anymore. I also know that I can have it later. Sometimes I have it (which is fine because I planned for it), but often I end up never having it.

I used to have a problem with those sweet coffees. I had them all the time. Then I told myself I could have one, once a week, but it had to be planned at least 24 hours beforehand and had to fit my meal plan. Sometimes I had it, but usually I didn't.

this is pretty funny. a few weeks ago, my boss brought in a couple boxes of those drumsticks to celebrate admin's professional week. most of us at work are fairly healthy so the cones sat in the freezer for a few days until finally someone broke them open. seeing as a box was open, i figured i'd go sniff one out. when i looked at the nutritional info on the box, i changed my mind. those things are good, but i just couldn't see wasting 300+ calories on one little rinky dink cone. that's a sign i've changed!

I'm a major lurker, but I'm finally going to post a comment after reading your blog for months!

Good job, having will power!

And I can't wait until you start talking about whatever diet you've been following - your progress has me very curious!

So, our boyfriends share a birthday and a way of tempting us with yummy treats ;). My boy has a sweeeeet tooth! Sometimes, uh, I can't stand it!!! I am glad you are working out your "no thank you" muscle! It is one of the tougher ones to work ;)

Ideally, my goal is 110. I am going to get to 115 and see how I feel at that weight. I am actually close to your height 4'11 and a 1/2ish inches lol.

So, you have something exciting coming do you? Are you joining me in the 120's :)??
