So, yesterday, I did just that! Maybe for the first time ever, I had one cookie and one cookie only.....hurray for me! For me, cookies are a downfall. Their delightful portable funsize, makes it ever so easy to pop a few into the body one right after another, right? (I don't mean eating an entire box, just more than one.)
A few years ago, I remember speaking with a friend about portion control and he said, "just try having one". At the time I looked at him as if he had 2 heads and came from an alien planet! I knew the advice was sound, but the execution was challenging. So, yesterday I prevailed! I must admit, it feels good!
So I am issuing a challenge - if you have a desire for something that may not be "on plan", just eat ONE. Try it, you will feel good too!
Now, here is a challenge I have issued to myself - over the next 30 days, I amchallening myself to do 3000 "sit ups". That is on average 100 per day. By "sit-up" I mean ab exercise, of which there are may challenging variations. I am sure a few of them will be the standard crunch, but they will also include plank holds with outer rotation, crunches done on a big ball so you can stretch with each one into a reverse extention, balancing on your tail bone with a heavy ball bounce on either side, a shallow v-up with a 25 pound plate, and many more. I thought it would be fun to set a goal and see if I can reach it. Between us, I know I will! I will report each week on my progress to the goal! Should be fun!
Desire to work towards a new goal. Dedication to track my progress. Discipline to eat just one.
