Victoriously Defeating the Day of Temptation

12 Feb

Victoriously Defeating the Day of Temptation

Today, I was determined to not let the extra food around me get the better of me.  For the first half of the day, I endured a package of Frosted Strawberry Pop Tarts within arms length of where I was working.  Here’s a picture of the package:

A couple of times, I even picked up the package and thought, “You know, it can’t be that bad.”  Then I read the nutritional information.

You’ll notice my thumb at the bottom of the picture holding that sugary goodness.  Fortunately, after reading the package label, I refrained from devouring it.

Then, later on, Kathy and I visited a festival within walking distance of our condo.  Here’s a picture of what tempted me there:

At first, I thought that there was no way that I could resist the deep fried twinkie, but then I realized that it wasn’t chocolate dipped.  Even though I was very tempted by the deep fried Oreos, bananas, and pickles, I thought that a jalapeno pretzel would be a better choice.

Here’s What I Had To Eat Friday:

1 Special K Protein Meal Bar

1 Grilled Chicken Salad with Lettuce, Spinach, Cucumbers, Brocolli, and almonds

1 Serving of Almonds

1 Serving of Blueberry Yogurt with fresh blackberries

1 Wheat/Jalapeno Pretzel

1 Serving of Fat Free Chocolate Pudding

92 oz of Water

Not My Finest Hour

Turnabout Is Fair Play/A Less Healthy Pizza

Yesterday, I shared about how to cook a healthier pizza.  Today, I ate the opposite.  At the office, we were celebrating a wonderful weekend of ministry today by scarfing down pizza.  I wish I could blame it on someone else, but I was the one who brought it to the group.  I read on Jillian Michael’s blog that the average person consumes 4800 calories on Superbowl Sunday.  I think I saved mine for the day after Superbowl Sunday.

(I had a Coke too)

(And a piece of King Cake)

Dinner was one serving of yogurt after exercising at the gym.
