I know, your resolution is to go to the gym, watch every morsel you put in your mouth, and make healthier choices. Be honest, how many of you still have a box or two of candy that you just can't throw out OR those DELICIOUS cookies you baked that are still calling to you in the middle of the night?
I am not hear to preach or make you feel bad, I just want to help you through this most fragile time of year. First, pack up those goodies and get them off your counters and out of sight. When you REALLY crave ONE, have it. I am guilty of it too. I had worked SO hard this year taking off tons of weight. I, of course, put on five pounds over the holidays. We all do. It's a fact of life. BUT, I did lose it by putting away the sweets and jumping right back into my daily routine IMMEDIATELY.
It's not too late. You can do it too. Remember out of sight, out of mind. One good thing about chocolate... besides it's awesome taste... it doesn't go bad. Save it... Hide it in a closet and don't think about it. Valentines Day is a month away. Take it out then. Treat yourself. By that point you will have lost those few pounds and you DESERVE that treat. Love yourself enough to do the very best for you.
I know how hard it is. Believe me. It's an everyday battle for me too. But I keep it under control by daily exercise and eating right. And yes, have A bite of something wonderful. That's all we really need to feel satisfied.
Lately my new craving is a latte. They can be harmless if you get a fat-free one. Sprinkle some cinnamon and natural stevia on top and it tastes like desert. REALLY. I LOVE THEM! So run to your nearest Starbucks and order the Venti no-fat latte. You will hate me for turning you into addict. LOL. At four bucks a pop, it is expensive, but, again, we are worth it. Besides the caffeine does help with our writing. Who can't use an extra boost in the afternoon? Right?
On Wednesdays we need a fun post. Right? It gets us through the rest of the week.
I hope you are all enjoying this lovely burst of warm weather in the mid-west. It was like spring yesterday and today is supposed to be a repeat. YAY!
Have a great one everybody.
