I admit, I’m starting to struggle just a bit. I’m not giving in…just admitting it’s not as easy as it was in the beginning. Perhaps that’s because the weight isn’t melting off like it was. And I know exactly why. I’ve stayed within my calories, but I have been allowing myself extra coffee with that darn creamer. If I don’t get that in check now, it’ll only get worse as work gets busier over the next 6 weeks.
Ugh…work…I am ready for my busy time to be over, and it’s really just beginning. I managed to work about 6 hours yesterday, on a Sunday. Today I am swamped but needed a break to do something else, so here I am blogging. 🙂
My dad and his girlfriend came over for a short visit yesterday. She bakes all the time…dinner rolls are her specialty, but yesterday she made cream puffs for something and brought some for us. I wasn’t going to have any, not even a taste. While I was putting some cream on a puff for one of my kids, I ended up licking my finger. OMG that was good cream! So I had another taste of it. Then I had a bite of the cream on a puff. My taste buds were in heaven!
But then I stopped. What was I doing?! I wanted to do this 30 days strict, and here I was with a couple bites of that cream puff in my belly. I am not calling this a failure. Not at all. I immediately got back on track and didn’t let those two bites get me off track. Normally, it would. But not this time. Not this time.
I AM doing this. I will have a wildly successful 30 days. After that? The possibilities are endless.
