Temptation & a winner!

todays quote

"The less food in your face, the less tempted you'll be to eat when you're not hungry"

So true for me. If I can see it, then I'm tempted to eat it. This is why I cannot keep items like Ice cream & Stacy's Pita Chips in the house regularly. For me, its an out of sight, out of mind thing. The closer it is to me, the more I crave it. So what do I do? I don't buy trigger items. I hide trigger items to only have a few at a time. I buy smaller portioned bags (like cadbury mini eggs) so I don't inhale 10 serving sizes.

What do you do to stop the temptation?

I'm happy to report I'm still on track with my eating, and workouts. I bought a cadence sensor for my bike to use with my Garmin and spent almost 45 min figuring it out. 3 you-tube videos later, I was sucessful. I hopped on for a 97 min ride, but I'm not sure if it was working right. For some reason it said I burned over 2,600 calories, but had a super slow 9mph pace. Help??

Today was long run day with Shelley, and whoops, I forgot to charge the Garmin after the ride so it died halfway through the run. We killed our 8.5 miles in about 1:30, and I ran up the entire hill at the end. Awesome. My legs feel great, especially after my massage I had today. Bring on the Cherry Blossom next weekend!

Early morning at the pool & weight training!

Nice job staying on track, girl! It's great to see you know what does and does not work for you.

This is so true. Food is the biggest temptation for me. I can work out, and it's not big deal for me. But food....I just cannot say no. I have to just not buy the bad food or else it will be gone that night.

Oh, yeah - if the bad food is in the house I will find it! :) Glad you had a good run!

Have you seen those "now popular" large wall decals that can be put on your wall but don't damage the wall and aren't considered permanent? Lots of people have "Live, Laugh, Love" or "God bless our home" or "welcome". I totally have to get one with your quote on it - get it HUGE size and put it in my kitchen above my side board which is directly in my line of sight when I sit down at the table to eat!!!!!
