Day 4

So far, I have been doing SO good on my diet, and then today I had a minor set back. I told myself that I was going to cut out soda (actually limit myself to one a week). I did not have soda at ALL last week! This is a HUGE accomplishment for me. I am a soda-a-holic. I haven't even had a craving for it. It has felt good progressing like that.

On Friday, I went out to lunch with my co-workers. I was very proud. While everyone else was ordering burgers or fried foods, I enjoyed a rather tasty honey mustard-ish dressing salad with chicken. It was delish. (Luckily salad is one of my favorite foods) Also, I ordered water.

On Saturday, I was also proud because that night, myMr's parents made cinnamon rolls and had ice cream, and I easily turned down both. I had no desire for it. I did cheat a little bit Saturday morning because I had french toast for breakfast, but I did not eat the bacon and eggs that came with it, so I thought that was pretty good.

So where did my minor set back come to play? Well, tonight was my sister's birthday party. As I gladly turned down the most fabulously looking chocolate cake, I broke and had a root beer float. Damn you soda, damn you. It was fabulous, but not at all good for my diet.

I have not been on top of working out. I kicked my ass one night by doing push-ups, lunges, sit-ups on a ball, and side-to-sides. I did go on a brisk walk tonight. Not very aerobic, but hey, it's exercise.

I am going to commit to doing some lunges in the morning to wake myself up and get my blood flowing before I go to work. I will update you all tomorrow on my food choices, and exercise choices.

Also, I am going to weigh in on Thursday. That will put me at one week in this process. I hope to see some progress. I hope you all are keeping up with all of your hard work and I hope you are resisting temptation that is so difficult around the holidays!

Take care until next time,
