Speak Up: What Good Choice Did You Make Today?

I was bummed this morning while I contemplating what to eat for breakfast because my workout got squeezed out of my schedule. While I thinking about about a missed workout, I was also literally one bite away from eating some leftover Easter cupcakes. What a slippery slope. But I caught myself and decided to eat a hard-boiled egg with a side of oatmeal and a bowl of sliced fruit. I was semi-unexcited with my standard breakfast but after all is said and done, I was pleasantly full and absolutely thrilled with my decision to make a good choice.

Then I thought, "Why do I focus on all the bad choices I make and not the good ones?" So take this opportunity to speak up and share any good decisions you've made today for your health. Whether it's stopping yourself before eating the entire bag of chips or running 10 miles, a good decision is a good decision and I can't wait to hear yours.

I have been doing better with eating a bite of something I really want instead of the whole thing (like double chocolate raspberry tort). And I've been to the gym or worked out every day this week! I used to be sooo good until I got a bad case of runner's knee, had to postpone the 1/2 marathon I signed up for in April to July, and wasn't able to work out nearly as much. I was still eating like I was still running 5 miles a day... But I wasn't. Oops. I think I'm back on track now! :)

I made good choices all day (Kashi bar for breakfast, lean cuisine Panini and a few pita chips with hummus for lunch, baby carrots for snack and sauteed chicken with mangos and cous cous for dinner and just a small handfull of candy corn for snack) I ran 2 miles after work and walked another mile after eating dinner...had too...it was SO nice out :)

I went to the cinema with my boy, and skipped the ben n jerrys stand! I still wanted some chocolate, so I made a glass of chocolate milk instead later.

Today I continued to run 45-minutes a day, which I have been doing for about 3 weeks. Before I was doing 30-minutes a day. Going to kick it up to 1 hour on April 14th. Getting in shape for my July wedding.

It was the first evening warm enough to have dinner on the balcony so I postponed my nightly gym visit until after dinner. I had a liesurely dinner with my sweetie and watched the sun go down. An hour later I hit the gym (dinner was light.) Usually, if I postone working out it doesn't happen but I'm glad I spent the time with my husband out-of-doors and proud that I still made time for my workout.

I had to go to a luncheon conference for work and I only ate a little of the salad b/c it was bathed in dressing, didn't eat the creamy sauce they had on the side of the rice, and skipped dessert. So I basically only ate my fish, asparagus and a couple bites of rice, but hey, better than regretting all that fat and sugar intake!

Although my decision of eating a huge lunch and washing it down with tons of chocolate may seem like a bad, one, I turned it into a good one by not kicking myself over it and realizing that I slipped and will get back on track tomorrow. And I don't regret the Twix bar!

When it comes to chocolate I have zero self-control... especially almond m&ms! Even though I aked her not to, my mom put a whole bag in my Easter basket. On the way back to the kitchen for my third handful I decided to just throw them out, the whole time repeating "Bikini, bikini, bikini..." It felt good :)

I stayed in the gym about 15 minutes longer than I had planned, and I restrained myself from buying cookies or pudding at the grocery store this morning. Instead, I got whole-grain crackers and reduced fat Laughing Cow cheese :)

Today marks the first that I've taken the stairs every day for a week. I moved to the 13th from the 3rd and got out of the habit, but now I've gone back to the stairs and it's kinda dorkily fun to race myself and try to beat my last best time. Sometimes I'm so tired that it's hard to start but I don't want to throw off my average by ever taking longer than two minutes, so I keep at it.

Instead of laying in bed the extra half hour with my boyfriend, we both went for a run on the beach!
