Hitching my Wagon of Weakness to God's Tow Truck of Self-Control

Friday, December 16, 2011

I recently discovered the TV show "Mike & Molly" and loved when Harry told Mike, "Hitch your wagon of weakness to my tow truck of will-power." Too funny.

So I had made some good choices yesterday. Right now I am just trying to get through the holidays without gaining any weight...that is my goal. I'm not trying to lose weight these next two weeks, I'm practicing self-control and awareness.

So, good choices:
Even though there is a cake sitting on my counter I did not touch it except to slice and serve it to children
Even though my candy cabinet is overflowing I did not eat any (I did eat a piece of homemade toffee but I did not touch the pre-wrapped kisses, KitKats, M&Ms, York Peppermint Patties, etc.)
Even though, in a moment of weakness, I bought a Butterfinger candy bar Tuesday, it is still sitting in my purse, untouched.
I went to another instructor's Zumba class

I've been invited to teach Zumba at a new studio so beginning January 2 I will be teaching 3 additional classes plus bringing back 1 of my own so I'll be teaching 5 times a week. This new studio is offering BodyPump as well and I'm hoping to get in there a try a couple of classes. I plan to do the Daniel Fast again in January, however with the Zumba class load I know I need more protein than the fast offers so I will be adding meat and cheese (no dairy other than cheese).

Hopefully between the added exercise and modified diet the emoticon will start ticking the opposite direction. Imagine how much weight I would have put back on had I not continued teaching Zumba all this time! emoticon
