I made a few decisions that were outside the realm of a normal splurge. I mean when I would go out I would just get large whatever and appetizers. I tracked the calories and I was honest. I only had two tacos, neither one was fried either! Grilled chicken for one and beef for the other. Light Cheese and refried beans with unsweetened tea for dinner. At the movies we split a soft pretzel with cheese and some jerky. I still went over, but we didn't get candy or popcorn, we knew we didn't really need or want it. We just shared our snacks and watched the movie.
I could lie. I could cheat and not track all my calories. I could say I worked out when I didn't. No one would ever know the truth. I'm the only one suffering. No one's gonna do it for me. No one is going to lose this weight. No one is going to eat that food for me. No one is going to work out for me. This is a challenge and this is a life style change.
I just ate the most delicious stir fry with zucchini and carrots. It was pretty delicious and i made it! go me! I also had a yummy smoothie made with fresh strawberries and ice. Now I'm going to relax for the evening.
