Resisting Temptation...

Saturdays are usually busy days for many people. Some do their laundry and others go grocery shopping. I did the latter yesterday and my! talk about food temptation. There were a lot of great bargains for foods that were calorie laden. Why don't they ever have sales for fruits and veggies but rather the ice cream, pizzas, sodas etc? It's so unfair. No wonder a lot of people are obese... The cheap foods are the ones that make you fat!

So I spent almost two hours reading the nutrition information on food products and asking myself whether this or that was worth putting in my system; is it worth struggling to burn later? Why have Digestive biscuit which has 71 calories per biscuit especially when, there is no way you are going to eat one and will probably have half of the box before letting go of the box? I don't think so.  Anyways, I ended up resisting temptation and bought all the stuff I needed for the week. I didn't even look at the pastry section  ( I love meat turnovers but the ones here are fattening as hell!).

Resisting temptation is hard. We all want what we can't have and its even more difficult when we can afford to get it. But I will try cos I don't want to miss out on the manicure and new shoes I will be getting myself when I reach my first goal...

Did 45 minutes on the treadmill and situps on the exercise ball and felt  really good after that workout this morning. Oh! and I weighed in at 98.5.  This is definitely a step in the right direction. Woo hoo!

  1. Resisting temptation is so hard! Good for you for taking the time and reading the labels. What I've actually found over the last 6 weeks is that the less I have the "bad" foods with the hard to pronounce ingredients, the less I crave them. Well, until yesterday but I'm hoping that was an isolated incident :) Good job!!
