Day 3 – 30 Day Challenge

Each day gets a little better. It always takes a while to get back into the swing, especially with more than just a day or two break. One thing happened today that I was very proud about so I thought I’d share.

I was driving home and I realized I still have no groceries. With friends in town the past several days, I’ve been eating most meals out (save breakfast). I was debating what to do since it was getting later and I didn’t want to wait too long to eat. Honestly in the days before challenge I would’ve just gone through the McDonald’s drive-thru, using the excuse that I don’t do it that often and it’s okay to splurge. So it actually came to mind last night. But it was more for the ease of not having to get out of my car rather than the idea of eating a hamburger and fries. It just didn’t sound great to me. My other option was Subway which was equa-distant from my house but would require my getting out of the car. Yes, clearly I was feeling lazy last night. It got down to making a right or left on Fillmore and I made the RIGHT decision and went to Subway. I got a salad and I felt so much better after making that decision. And I felt extremely proud. It’s really easy to make bad decisions when you’re tired and hungry. Because of the challenge the past 2 months, it wasn’t that difficult of a decision to make. The only reason I considered it was for the ease rather than the idea of having a “tasty” fast food meal.

I am happy to see how this challenge is paying off in ways other than the scale. I can tell you two months ago I would’ve made a left instead of a right…so yay for non-scale victories! 🙂

  1. I agree with you about the results of the challenge. With an 8 yr old great-granddaughter living here I have a lot of temptations – just like eating at a McDonalds other than the home McDonalds. As retired people, we really need to do more of our cooking. I have been sooo happy, as it got me off the plateau I was on – hadn’t lost anything for months. Two wks ago I lost 2.2# and last wk was only 1.2# – but at least it was something. Off the subject, but I was working in the church office on Tuesday and Phil Robb came in – it was good talking to him and catching up. We really enjoyed the GHS choir at our church and saw Phil go up for the last part where the alumni participated.
