{it's calling my name}

One of our clients at work brought pizza and other crap in to our office for lunch yesterday. Thankfully, I wasn't there to be tempted. Unfortunately, there is still a huge 6 gallon tub of cheese puffs sitting on the counter calling me name.

"Shan! Shan! Partake of my cheesey, crunchy deliciousness!"

And of course, sitting right next to the barrel 'o cheese is the box full of assorted brownies saying,

"Hey baby- wanna piece of me?"   Yes. Yes, I do.

I don't know which is harder to resist, but both are calling out to me like a preacher to a sinner. 

There is a constant chant in my head saying "be good, be good, be good, be good, be good..." I know the more I resist, the easier it will be in the future to resist, but right now, it's so damn hard!

I got up early this morning and went to the gym with my husband. He joined the express Golds gym in Draper and I have a Golds membership as well. It's the first time I've used it in months. Sad, I know! 
He woke us up at 5:45, which is so early! I've gotten up a million times before at 6:00 but for some reason, that 15 minutes makes and feels like a huge difference! We got our clothes ready the night before so we could just head out, but I realized my legs were hairy and so I had to shave really quick. I didn't want to be the fat, amazonian woman at the gym. One or the other, but not both! 
So the hubs left before me and I met him there. It wasn't as intimidating as I thought it was going to be. Plus, knowing someone there makes it a LOT easier to go! My hubs was there, along with my brother in law, and I even saw a good friend. I ran/walked on the treadmill and my legs felt so jello-y afterwords that I almost fell when I stepped off. I tried my best to walk normal afterwords, but I'm sure I looked a little tipsy! 

Even though waking up early was a struggle, I'm SO glad that I got my workout out of the way for the day. Plus, as much as I am not a morning person, I do enjoy being up and at 'em early and ready for the day! The drive to work was beautiful & I felt great!

I started the day off right and I'm ending it that way!
So cheese puffs & brownies- you can shove it (into someone else's mouth)!
I'm being good!

Going to the gym - now THAT is being good to yourself!! That food will make you feel yucky, physically and emotionally. Don't do that to yourself! Keep fightin!

Awesome! NEVER GIVE IN. It's NEVER worth it! And I love how exercise helps you feel good about yourself on your weight loss journey. It was the same for me.
