Tellin the truth Tuesday

I’m doing very well on my fitness goals. I’m on the strict phase of my eating plan right now and losing pretty good.

I’ve lost another 7 lbs from the last time I was on the strict phase. I’m actually tickled to be doing so well during the holiday season. There are so many temptations around and it’s nice to not have to think about them.

However, the sugar cookies are about to be my downfall! We made sugar cookies for James’  Tae Kwon Do Christmas party. The dough was calling my name! I was really good though but surprised. I’ve not had to deal with any temptations on the strict phase before. It’s just become a non-issue. This time I had to struggle quite a bit.

I have been eating pieces of the sugar cookies–which is not good. But then it’s not all bad. For me to consider taking a small taste a “Cheat” is really a huge step in the right direction. I’ve been able to come to the place where taking a small taste is just as satisfying as eating all of it.

I still have to be vigilant and keep working on my bad habits, because I’m not naive enough to believe they’re gone!

I was thinking about the end of the year and about  my goals I made for 2010 this time last year.

I really wanted to get my photo letters organized into a nice easily viewable format for customers. I wanted to learn new methods for casting on stitches for knitting.

I was beating myself up about not accomplishing those things in an entire year. Then I realized that I’ve made huge progress on something that’s been on my New Year’s Goals list for many many years.

So it’s all good !
What about you? Any health goals or progress to share?

    Congrats on your willpower! I just read a study where people who imagined gorging themselves on their weakness (chocolate, sugar cookies ;o) etc ) actually psychologically turned off the craving. So I guess you should try to imagine yourself eating a whole tin and feeling sick! worth a try, right? Have a wonderful Christmas – I know this will be the best one in a very long time!

    Just a thought–why not share a neck down before/after picture? It would INSPIRE US [hint, hint–me!!!] but not compromise your privacy?

    You’re doing GREAT!!! wish I had your will power! I’ve gotten better over the years at not eating all the gifts brought in by patients and other offices, but it’s still tough!
