Temptation Tuesday

Morning. Today's challenge will be resisting temptations, especially after yesterday having succombed to consuming two pieces of candy.
Challenge Tally:
  • My coworker brought in some leftover cookies from her daughter's wedding reception this weekend. They smell SO GOOD!!! It is all I can do to turn my head and keep my fingers from wandering in that direction!!!! I'm happy to report that I am meeting this challenge head-on and it is HARD. Thank God for helping me with discipline in this area.
  • When I got home from work I so wanted to chow down on some sort of carbs - like bread or cereal or whatever. I settled on a spoonful of peanut butter.

Breakfast: 1/2 cup of vanilla low-fat (99% fat free) yogurt with walnuts.

Coffee: 1 1/2 cups with non-dairy cream (I know I know - not holding up my end of the dairy-princess bargain).

Water: Working on a bottle. Will finish it on the way to work. Done. 1 bottle at work. 1 large glass with lunch. 1 large glass after lunch. 2 bottles this evening.

Pills: Baby Aspirin and Vitamin.

Snack: Spoonful of peanut butter. Popsicle.

Lunch: BLT and a side salad with ranch to dip. 2 potato chips and 3 potato chip crumbs.

Dinner: chicken, veggie, rice casserole.

Exercise: We played tennis tonight!!!! I'm so delighted to have such fabulous weather!!!! AND we walked up the hill to check out the new equipment in the Community Center. Wow, they have treadmills, bikes, elipticals, a stepper, and a lot of weight lifting equipment. The "couples" membership is only -- get this -- $100 per year (12 months). That's amazing!!! And they are open 6AM - 11PM every weekday. (other hrs on the weekend) Additionally there is an indoor track, open gym, a lounge with a pool table and more. We are thinking if we used it together at least once per month that it would certainly pay for itself. Hmmm... $100 Hmmm... We did not have our wallets with us so we haven't done it yet, but it's definitely being considered. Well, should we or shouldn't we????? There was a time when I paid almost $40/mth just for my own membership. I cancelled it when I got married because we couldn't afford the fees for both of us while he was a student. I must say that this is a deal that I hate to pass up!

How I'm Feeling:

MORNING: Still a little tired. A cup of coffee should take care of that. I didn't want to get out of bed this morning. I wanted to rest more. Why is that? Regardless, I need to get this day on the road.

AFTERNOON: Panic! Forgot that I had a doctor appointment this afternoon!!!

EVENING: Hmm... a little tired after some good exercise. A little tired after a long day. A lot on my mind - it races. Hmm... need to relax already!
