make lemonade!!! So today is the day after my birthday, yesterday was a great day! We went out for lunch with my folks and I did really well (steak sandwich - 7 oz sirloin steak, bean and carrot veggies, 1/2 slice garlic toast and garden salad w/small dab of dressing). Then, oh oh, here comes the kicker(s) - restaurant gives free dessert to birthday diners - yep, I did, mango cheesecake. Then my Mom made an apple dessert that I could not resist - even though she made it with Splenda it still had lots of calories in the crust. Why, oh why do I do this to myself. Excuse - it was my birthday! Acceptable excuse - not really.
So today I am starting to be a good girl and work my program without treats (thanks Dawn you really motivated me). We really don't need anything but basic food to fuel our bodies, so why can't I put that in motion? Hubby and I had this discussion the other day. I think in the back of my mind I don't look in a mirror and see the flab. I see what I want to see and believe what I want to believe no matter how detrimental it may be.
I downloaded SparksPeople onto my i-pod so I can track my calories and weight on a daily basis. I'm also going to start using my Wii at least half an hour a day.
