Yesterday I did hit the pool, like I had planned. I usually do 30 there-and-back 'laps' of the pool, which takes me around 30 minutes with two little breaks when I tread water or do other aquafit-style exercises. Last night I did them all without any breaks, and was done in 26 minutes. That's a great improvement in time, I think!
Today we had a staff meeting at work. The 'refreshments', at 9:00 in the morning?
This is what I said to the cupcakes:
That's right. I turned them down. I love cupcakes, and these were the really decadent ones, but I don't love them enough to have one instead of a different treat this week. (Like beer! Or wine!) I knew I'd have a challenging dinner tonight so I stuck to my guns and my coffee with skim milk.
This weight loss thing really isn't easy, and I know I'm still in the honeymoon phase. But I'll take it while I can get it - hopefully by the time the going gets tough, I'll have worked out a few more tactics to stick it out for the long haul.
