Man, no wonder I got fat! (The first true temptation)

My work offers me the opportunity to work Saturdays for overtime pay. It has been one of the ways I keep my finances in the black. For volunteering to work they also buy us lunch ... big, fat greasy, delicious lunch. As much as you can eat. (even me) That wound up to near a whole pizza some days.

Old habits die hard ... but it's time for them to DIE!

No fear blog followers I did not give into even 1 of the easy to grab, pleasure  to eat slice. Not that I couldn't have one and walk away and still make my caloric goal for the day but walking away altogether just feels more right. Instead, I brought my own meal. Whole wheat pasta whith lean meat marinara. If we are being honest, even after eating it though, the temptation to grab a slice didn't leave but the conviction to resist didn't either.

  1. Yea for you!!! Honestly, once you get used to eating healthier food, the things that you crave don't actually taste as good as you remember, plus they usually leave you feeling like crap. Keep it up!
