I weighed myself this morning for my weekly weigh-in and am down 2.8 pounds, to 271.6 pounds!!! Finally, a loss that you can actually bite into! I’ve been doing really well this week, eating-wise and have even tracked everything, and have exercised every day since starting the 30 days of exercise challenge on (I think) Tuesday (also the day my hubby called to tell me he was proud of me!). I am finally feeling back in control!
When I got back from lunch today, there was a bag with 4 Otis Spunkmeyer chocolate chip cookies sitting on my desk. Some guy dropped them off, trying to get a contract with his company and not realizing that I’m not the right person for that. So as I’m sitting here, trying to ignore them, I’m about to give in, but first I look up their calorie count on SparkPeople, and actually, since the cookies are small, each one is only about 44 calories each. But I didn’t want to do that, especially since I’ve been doing so well with eating healthy.
The guy next door came in to use my copy machine, and I offered them to him, but he gave me a roundabout story of the chocolate bliss bomb his wife made for him last night, and he didn’t need more today. Then I hear someone walking up the hall. It’s *Hannah, who is very skinny, and would likely be unhurt by 4 small cookies. And I learned that she’ll do just about anything for chocolate chip cookies! Well, I didn’t make her do anything, except get them out of my office. Temptation averted!!!
Have a great weekend!
