It might be a Saturday and usually my slack off time... the weekends always get me! I never know how to behave on the weekend... whereas when I'm at work during the week... I NEED to stay at my desk and not go wandering off searching for food to stuff in my face. Yet, the weekend is also the best time for me to get up and move... So... it has its ups and downs....
This weekend... I'm thinking should be different.
I woke up this morning .... and the first thing I grabbed for was my water. When my typical weekend consists of me grabbing change for the soda machine ... or grabbing a soda out of my fridge. Not this weekend... this weekend is different.
My girls are going to a birthday party this afternoon and so I was forced to go to the store to pick up a gift. I thought... since I'm going, I might as well look up one of our Spark recipes and pick up some ingredients. Keep with the plan! I'm making an egg bake I found here for Brunch. Hoping it turns out... my egg bakes never do. Ha ha. Still... I picked up ingredients for it... vs. swinging by McDonalds for a breakfast burrito or something I know I'd regret. 2 way to go Jenni moments today.
Then... walking through the store... I was tempted by some super yummy looking Chocolate donuts.... and oh the chips... and the cookies... and oh... look... soda!
I closed my eyes for a minute... and repeated to myself.... think you, thin you, thin you.... put my blinders on and walked out of there quick as lightening! Yay go me!
My afternoon today will consist of me cleaning up my house some, and maybe hitting the pool again later today. Maybe a couple rounds of laundry... and... I'll fit in a work out this afternoon in between doing laundry... This has been an entertaining journey... and I'm FINALLY seeing what the big goal a head of me is... I am even more determined to accomplish my 75 lbs gone then ever... :)
