Oh hi there, fitmepeeps. Have you missed me? Sorry...I've been sitting on the couch, humming a tune with my fingers in my ears to drown out the sounds of SUGAR calling to me from the kitchen.
I'm not gonna lie. It's been a MAJOR test of willpower. All I wanted to eat on Monday was leftover birthday cake. Why didn't I just throw it away? Not sure. But I didn't have a single bite. I've gone for three days now without even a morsel of chocolate. That's huge for me.
Normally, the first thing I think to do when my kids start screaming, is grab a handful of chocolate chips. Oh, naptime is over? Chocolate chips. You can't share that toy? Chocolate chips. You're mad because you can't watch Word World again? Chocolate chips. They're small, so they don't count, right? Wrong. It adds up.
So I've been a REALLY good girl! And my fridge is stocked chock full of fruit. I had to consciously decide to eat an apple instead of chocolate chips on Monday. It wasn't what I wanted, but it totally satisfied me. Now that I'm almost over the first week hurdle, I'm not stopping! How about you?
