Five Things I Never Thought I’d Do (All in Two Days)

  1. Wake up at 5:30 a.m. in the morning to workout. Although this is not a regular occurrence, it does happen from time to time. Like this morning!! For some nutso reason I woke up at 5 a.m. Instead of staying in bed I threw on my workout togs, pulled my hair back, and got in a thirty minute high intensity workout.
  2. Receive a box of See’s Candy truffles, eat one, and tell the hubby he can have the rest cause they were too sweet. WTFBBQ?!?!?! I love chocolate. I love chocolate from See’s. I love chocolate truffles from See’s. Who is this person and what have you done with Suzanne?
  3. Eat Broccoli instead of Cake. Yes, you read that correctly. There was a going-away party for the “food pusher” in my office (I’ll miss you food pusher, and your cakes and cookies and candies too!!!) as she moves on to bigger and better things. Number one, I convinced the organizers to have an option besides enchiladas (and all their chewy, cheesy goodness) because some of us won’t eat them. Number two, I steamed broccoli instead of eating the chocolate cake with chocolate frosting and chocolate sugar flowers because I had cake the night before and was going out to dinner with the hubby for his birthday.
  4. Eat salad at a pizza restaurant. The hubby decided he wanted to go to his favorite pizza restaurant for his birthday dinner (and it was really sweet too! He kept asking if that was okay or if I wanted to go somewhere else. Awww!). We order his favorite pizza and I get a large salad plate with two slices of pizza. And I was satisfied!
  5. Take an entire meal to drink one small glass of cherry pepsi. I gave up drinking soda a long time ago, leaving it in its proper place as an occasional treat. So here I am with my little eight or ten ounce glass of cherry pepsi (which I used to drink by the 2 liter), and I sip on it a little bit throughout the hour or so we’re there for dinner. No refills! Holy carp!

Wow. Double wow. This really is me. I really am changing.

I'm just a girl doing a thing. A little sarcastic, a little cynical, and a total sassbot. Nothing's off limits here, but my primary focus is weight loss. Still, you might find commentary on anything ranging from makeup to music to fashion to beer and dancing.

    Thanks for todays comment on my blog. I said something in the past and got more crap then it was worth so I will be labeling from now on.

    That is a great list! Yay for you to challenge yourself and you really are changing! So great to witness your transformation.

    • How frustrating!!!! You’d think people would be more interested in shaming those who can’t keep their grubby hands to themselves. *sigh* this is kind of a ranty subject for me too.

      It really was amazing to realize all these things that I did in the course of two days. Maybe this healthiness thing will eventually become a habit!!!

    That’s wonderful! I adore the feeling of wanting to be healthier. It is so much easier that fighting and restricting and craziness we all do to ourselves. There is just a marvelous sweet spot where it is a choice but an easier one and one that gets us closer to ourselves. Just great!

    Go YOU!
    When they say nothing tastes as good as thin (or relatively thinnish) feels, they are totally right. I had no idea.
    Size MEDIUM is the bomb girl!
    I had no idea.
    Just keep on keepin’ on.
    XOXO
