So I was reading Allan's blog today and he was talking about the temptation he deals with every day. I am in the same bag. It is amazing to me the amount of crap that comes streaming into the office this time of year. So far this week I've dealt with cupcakes, pies, pastries, and brownies twice. Today is just Wednesday. It just amazes me. I don't eat that stuff. Don't even let myself taste it because I know one taste isn't enough for me.
I have done so great this week on my eating and water. I've got to get my exercise back to the level it was. That starts in the morning no matter how much I whine and try to get out of it. I am getting back to daily morning workouts and I'll continue my twice weekly TKD. The days I don't do TKD I will be running errands to finish shopping and what not until Christmas. Except on Monday when I'll meet with my trainer. Can I just say that I dread that? I do. I know I love to go and I love to work out hard. I also know he's going to kick my ass. Don't get me wrong, it needs kicking.
I've slipped into the mode of making excuses and that is over. I am just going to make myself get back to where I was. I have to prove to myself that I can be consistent with exercise. I haven't stopped this whole time, even with the surgery I did some amount. But, since the surgery it has been less. Yesterday marked 8 weeks. There really is no reason why I don't ramp it up again. The only reason is that I have to get my self out of the way. Tomorrow morning I am restarting the C25K. I am determined. DETERMINED to finish it and achieve my goal of running the whole 5K.
I have to measure in a few days. It's been a month. I think I'm still losing inches, but much slower with less workouts. This should be great motivation. I bought a pair of "real" size 14 jeans today. I haven't tried them on yet. I just haven't had time as I bought them in a hurry at lunch. I can't wait to see if they'll fit. I'll keep you posted.

Now I am exhausted so I am headed to bed. BTW, my baby girl got her green belt tonight. She broke a board with an axe kick. She was so proud. My son brought home his tuxedo shirt for his band concert next week. He did not care for wearing a collar. Wait until he adds the bow tie. Ha ha. Welcome to manhood little dude. Middle chickie read and read tonight. She's reading above her grade level. They really are my "happy thought".
How's your week so far? Have you battled temptation? Who won? You or the cookies? What is your happy thought?
