In the end of cleaning out my kitchen from junk food I ended up with FOUR paper bags (1 not pictured) FULL of junk food! All the way from canned sliced potatoes & black olives to pancake mix & syrup. A bunch of bad choices if you ask me. I gave all the bags of food to my Mom which she was happy to take :-) It wasn't easy but I needed to get rid of it all in order to proceed with this process.
Today I woke up and made a cup of coffee that I took to work with me. I have yet to get back into the groove of my green tea and lemon water but it's only a matter of time because I'm getting myself a thermos and am going to make a pot of green tea and drink it throughout the day at work. I have no excuse for not doing my lemon water this morning. I do have a couple lemons in the fridge, I just didn't do it. I have plans to start that tomorrow. For lunch today I had raw broccoli and for dinner I had a veggie sub on flatbread from Subway. I need to go shopping and get some healthy stuff but only to a bare minimum! I will only buy what I need to survive LOL.
We have this candy bowl at work from Halloween and I am proud to say my fingers came no where near it today! I was tempted many times but stayed strong ;-) It's the little things....
I also got my workout in! I need to make my workouts a priority and feel the need to have to do them before my head hits the pillow. Today I did a workout in the basement after work. I did a half hour on my elliptical/recumbent bike and lifted weights and I feel really good. These past couple workouts have been pitiful but I know as time goes on I will only get stronger and stronger. I AM DETERMINED.
