I sit down to blog, open up a window, sign in, then leave without blogging because I get distracted. Somehow in my mind that counts for something as far as regularity of posts go.
However slow I may be, life isn't! Last night we did a concert. It was fun. They fed us before and I had thirds on greenbeans. They were really good! Sometimes I have fun eating "right," and sometimes it's such a drag. Last time we made a BBQ I made those No Bake Chocolate Bars and I told myself I could have a piece. Well what's the difference between ONE piece and TWO pieces? Two pieces and three? Not much, except that they all add up. I've been doing much better at avoiding sugary things if I don't have the first bite. I can't count the number of times I've reached out for something and almost picked something up and then pulled my hand away. I don't seem to have the self control at this point to only have a tiny bit. Some days, yes, but most of the time, no.
So for those of you who might be trying to give up something, maybe you should try a new approach (no "First bite"). It also seems that when I go through the motions of getting something, sometimes I'm OK. Like I'll put my hand into the bag of pretzels and not actually touch anything in there and that buys me time to say "no!" if I don't need any extra carbs for the day. But then, there are days where I say no all day but then eventually I crumble, and on days when I know I'm not going to go overboard, I do have the first bite.
So yesterday we sang, today is sort of an "off" day, tomorrow we sing, and Monday I'll be gone for 12 hours, Tuesday 9 hours. It's better than having nothing to do, but I'll be looking forward to Wednesday, when I get to stay home and cook :)
On Wednesday I should have a synopsis of the activity I engaged in on Monday and Tuesday. Until then, it's a secret ;)
How would I look on this bike?
(dream on, Bonnie!)
