It's a tiny victory but a funny one!
I HATE Thursdays and Fridays at the school I teach at. Thursdays are staff meeting/treat day and Friday is bannock day. As wonderful as treats and bannock are, they are not good for weight loss! This morning, I packed extra fruit and told myself "Be tough today...it's Thursday!" and then came the dreaded staff meeting.
I thought for a second, before I went in, that if it was a brownie, I might let myself have one. I don't want my plan to be so depriving that I cave and eventually binge. But then I thought that nothing tastes as good as thin feels, and I would only be in heaven for like...15 seconds. AND possibly derail.
So what did I do? Well, I went to the bathroom for a second. The staff bathroom is the ONLY place in the entire school where I have privacy. It is a safe haven from "MISS! MISS! LOOK WHAT I CAN DO!" and other exhausting parts of the school day.
I said - nope. No treat. I walked out into the meeting and BAM! There was not only brownies, but also cinnamon buns, peanut -freaking- brittle, and a myriad of other homemade treats. We don't get most of these in the Arctic so it was quite a display.
One teacher saw me with my celery, got up, and put the tray BESIDE ME, and took away my celery.
AND I didn't budge.
Tra la laaaaaa I had a great day. Hope you did too!!!!!!! Oh, and I have Friday off for a mentorship day- NO BANNOCK!!
