Default The "What I did for ME" thread-December

What did you do for yourself today that was good? A good decision. It can be anything.

Getting some exercise

Eating a healthy meal

Eating a smaller-than-normal portion of dessert

Passing on the dessert tray at a restaurant

Saying "no" to someone instead of always being the one to say "yes"

It can be anything. Anything that makes you feel good and not feel like running to food.

I'm going to try and post something on this thread daily. It may take until the end of the day before I do something good for myself, but I will try every day. I'd love for everyone to post here daily. Let's see how long we can make this thread.

And I will start.

I will push myself away from my computer and go downstairs and get my workout done.

I like this thread. Very, very much so. Good idea!!

I woke up early this morning and instead of trying to go back to sleep I did 75 sit-ups. Granted I would have done them anyway, but it felt great to get them out of the way. I usually do 2 sets a day, who knows maybe today I'll get in 3 sets.

I am impressed! 1) with the sit-ups; and 2) with crawling out of bed instead of hitting the snooze!

YAY!

I ate breakfast (a serving of sugar-free oatmeal) even though I was NOT hungry and did not feel like eating. Yay me. lol This is fun.

I just got back from the gym--full body weights and 40 or so minutes on the bike (I stopped to fix my foot thingy and had to restart so I dont know exactly how long I went)

Akec and ennay -- great job!

I had a close one. I was feeling pretty stressed this evening for various reasons, and I desperately wanted to turn to tortilla chips and cheese. Ugh. NOT good.

But I decided to compromise. I got some Healthy Choice veggie soup & sprinkled some lowfat parmesan on it & a few dashes of tabasco. And I got a small handful of tortilla chips - NO CHEESE!

I think I'm ok now. LOL

Hmmm, I love baking and cooking. So, instead of making cookies or another dessert, I made a delicious and healthy black bean soup for dinner instead. Thanks, MissH, for setting up this thread.

Great topic! It's nice to take a minute to think about what good choices we made and how we were good to ourselves.

I'm stoked that I fit in 'incidental' exercise by getting up early (I am a hardcore night owl, so this is big!), using my lunch break and a bit of pre-dinner time to get in three 15 min brisk walks. Not nearly as intimidating as thinking, "I have to go do 45 mins now!". Also I'm pleased that I ran a mile in a good time for me and more importantly, that afterwards I felt really pumped and was looking forward to doing it the next day!

Sorry this is long, I can get a bit overly wordy! Yay everyone here

Great way to celebrate the little positive things!

I marched in place while watching a movie, and then popped in an aerobics tape. I also ordered two new in-home walking DVDs.

This morning when I got to work, I popped a piece of sugarless gum in my mouth rather than help myself to the Christmas treats someone brought and put on the kitchen table!!!

(Don't these people know it's Dec. 27th and Christmas is OVER??????)

Go you Jen!!! I agree that this is a fan-tas-tic thread, MissH. Here's my 2 cents:

a) I've come home for the holidays and instead of doing nothing and watching tv, I've walked 4.5 miles every morning with my mom (I usually walk 4).

b) I've controlled my eating (I know I'm an overeater, which is the cause of my weight gain) so far and I didn't think I could do it!!
