Just say No!

Gosh ~ I have underestimated how challenging this time of year can be ...food wise.  

Saturday's dinner at Grandma's - no wine but I did have a bite or two of fourless chocolate cake - turns out I don't even like the stuff...who knew...funny what you find out when you slow down and taste your food.

Last night dinner at a friends house - I was supposed to be designated driver again...but that didn't happen - so I may have had a bit of wine...DOH!

Yesterday I went for a long solo MTB - 13 miles of trail bliss.  
And as I was patting myself on the back for being saintly and awesome with food one of my clients tried to torture me.  Yep - holiday gift season...... a big box of Godiva truffles...luckily Miss Lorie talked me off the ledge and I immediately gave the box to our admin for the office to snack on.

This was a big victory - I really wanted to sneak that box to my office and munch away until I was sick - but as I reluctantly gave the box away something happend....I got stronger.  Eventhough I believe that when one gives away food or turns down candy when offered, a band should play, a parade should appear, fireworks should spell out "You Are Awesome" in the sky and one's clothing should instantly become two sizes too big
But I guess I'll see victory on the scale on Wednesday  ~ my first challenge weigh in!  

Its Monday - so off to yoga I go and then a mountain bike ride tonight ~ whoop whoop!

  1. So, I was a drum major in high school and college, so I'll lead your parade! You Are AWESOME!

    I felt that same feeling of "why is no one cheering?" on Friday when we had our all-staff holiday brunch. Huge buffet of cheesy eggs, sausages, bagels, danish - not a fruit cup or yogurt in sight - and I had.....a glass of orange juice.

    So we'll just have to applaud for each other, deal?

  3. You are my hero! I don't know if I could have turned away that level of chocolate!
    I'm at work now and have already eaten 4 Hershey miniatures. Ugh!

  4. *throws confetti and lights firecrackers* You go Warrior! Such a wonderful victory because I know where you and I both have been over the last few months so turning down something today is genuinely a good thing. I'm so proud of you. *hugs*
