Today has been a great day so far. Despite the cold and drizzle, Sarah and I went for a good 40 min walk at lunchtime. It was so cold...but that just made us walk faster I guess.
I just finished reading "The Secret" last night and I must say it has really changed my outlook. I never knew that thinking negatively could affect you so much...and I really wasn't aware of how negative my thoughts really were! So I've started my 'gratitude list' and I can't believe how much I enjoy it. If you haven't read the book, I would definitely recommend picking it up. It makes you think about how you think...did that make sense??? Anyway for those of you who have read it, I'd love to know what you think!
Last night I had 2 non scale victories! I went home from work, got my digs on and went for a workout, came home and ate a big pasta dinner. Too big....I cooked too many brussel sprouts and fried up too many veggies. Well usually I would sit there and scarf down the whole thing without even thinking but last night, I had about a 1/3 cup of pasta left on my plate and I stopped. I just pushed it away and stopped eating! I don't know if I've EVER done that!! On top of that, around 8:30 I was feeling kinda restless and decided to have a snack, so I went to the cupboard and reach for a 100 calorie pack Hostess Chocolate Cupcake. I actually had it in my hand and then I thought....do I even WANT this??? Or am I just eating because I am bored???? So I worked through it and PUT IT BACK in the cupboard! YAY me!
