WHICH COOKIE DO YOU WANT?

Sometimes you just get on a roll. The planets align. The dominos fall in rhythm. Your sums add up and your steam train is powering on its way to Station: SUCCESS.

This is how I've been felling lately. Eating on plan is not a chore. Its what I want to do and I do it without any feelings of deprivation or semi starvation. I choose food that I love and I savour the taste. I eat regularly to keep my stomach happy and my mood level. I look forward to training, getting the most important sessions done early in the day. Whatever happens after that, it doesnt matter. If I'm too tired at the end of the day, I rest. If at the end of the day I can spend extra time with my son, thats time well spent and my training is not suffering. I'm getting closer to achieveing my short-term goal and I can almost taste it with 3 weeks to go.

Yesterday I was out and it was time for my weekly treat of a skim cappuccino. I used to have at least one every day, now I have one, maybe two just on weekends. I went into the coffee shop and ordered my usual "weak skim cappuccino" and handed over my rewards card. The assistant took it and said "do you want to use your free one?" which I hadnt noticed I was due for. So I said "yes" of course, thinking what a nice bonus it was to get a free coffee. Then the assistant said "which cookie do you want?" which I didnt hear clearly so I asked her to repeat it (I didnt realise my next reward was a coffee and a cookie). She did and my reply was ........

"No thanks I dont want a cookie, just the coffee". And the sky didnt cave in and heaven didnt fall to earth.

THE END

Cheers all

Magda that is exactly how I feel... No deprivation, I'm enjoying my training sessions and food, and I know it's my choice to do it all...

Great job on the cookie as well. It's so empowering to be able to say no thank you and not feel like you are missing out...

He...he...what a great response! It's so refreshing to hear how you're talking now Magda. And yes, when all things come together and heaven and earth align, it's amazing how life can take on such a new and revitalised perspective.
