I'm living the life my friends...mostly. I have had quite a few NSVs lately. Things that I thought would be really hard and close to impossible have been relatively easy. I have found it pretty easy to make better food choices. I have heard of people doing it, and I know it sounds a bit melodramatic but I never thought I would be able to say no to fattening delicious things and choose healthier things without being angry about it. I have! The other day on the way home from work... a very dangerous time for me... I decided that I was going to have a cheeseburger. I had the points and I really wanted one and I was starving. I pulled into Jack in the Box and when I did the Taco Cabana was looking at me right next door. There was a sign about Cabana bowls and I thought... I could have a bowl with veggies and no shell and it would probably still be high points but a much better choice. I pulled into TC and not JitB. I ordered a bowl with black beans, lettuce, tomatoes, guac, taco meat, and little cheese, and a little sour cream. It was like 11 points but a ton of food and lots of protein and fiber and not nearly the carbs of a burger. I couldn't even finish it. I can't believe I did it. I know to some that may sound ridiculous, but I never would have done it before. I had eggs and fruit this morning with a piece of bacon and no biscuits and gravy, no cinnamon rolls and no soda or OJ. I had 2 small pieces of chocolate but I was able to stop at that. I don't know what this new thing that has come over me is... I don't recognize it. Could it be WILL POWER?!?! I have never had this in my life. I have to say it feels good... empowering.
BUT... on the flip side. My exercise, well, not so much. I have had a very hard time leaving the couch. I know that I would feel so much better if I would just do it. I feel better after. But it's been hard to overcome my laziness. I have no excuse. I just enjoy sitting. So, my challenge this week is to GET OFF THE COUCH!!
I'll let you know how it goes! I'm always open to suggestions. I am new at this healthy stuff.
