Just One Cupcake!

Well, made cupcakes Tuesday, manage to avoid eating any up until after supper today. I had one and oh my, was it good,lol.  I'm pretty sure my calories today are still fine but dang, i was trying to avoid any junk. Junk makes me want even more junk and well..you get the idea.

You know what? I was just thinking...usually about right now i would be debating on having another cupcake. But somethings different today....I don't want another one? Wow, that felt pretty good :)

Besides the cupcake, i have been on plan all week. Got some good workouts in and kept up with my calories, that feels good too.

The last time i weighed was on the 29th(Sunday) of August. I didn't lose any weight and it hit me kinda hard. So hard that in fact i lost my focus that Thursday night through Saturday, didn't eat hardly anything healthy but did get in my workouts so hopefully there wasn't a lot of damage. I thought about weighing this Sunday but im not sure if i can take the good with the bad. I would love to see a loss but at the same time, am i mentally strong enough to see the same # or a gain? I have a couple of days to decide.

Cheesy Bicep Flex pic



Yep! I just had to do it....i never thought i would ever have a cheesy bicep flex pic, but so be it. I think after sticking to this lifestyle for over 5yrs now (July this year) i deserve to post it :) If you look real closely you can almost make out a bicep muscle, LOL...

Nothing special going on today. Suppose to be a rest day but i feel great, may take the dog for a walk. I think there is something about walking that is so relaxing. My Lab is looking at me right now through our sliding glass doors...its so cute!

Yesterday was a good eating day, we took the kids to burger king for supper and I planned ahead and felt so proud of that. We then took the little froggies ( we got above ground pool over the summer and stayed submerged in it, the kids reminded me of frogs,lol) to get an outfit for school and I of course had to try on some clothes...smaller clothes :D....it was another nice moment, smiling at myself in the mirror. I didn't buy any (im a tight*ss,lol ) but it was fun trying them on. Actually, i was wanting to go by the Salvation Army store today and see whats there.

And i just wanted to add...my little girl is SO hard to shop for, OMG!!! I can't help but wonder if i was that picky as a child? Makes me appreciate my mother that much more.

Temporary Feelings
