    Today I wanted to get my favorite burger from Whataburger, double meat double cheese. I thought of bunch of excuses of why I should just hit the drive thru rather than make something at home. It's late... I won't get the fries... Everyone else has already eaten... But I didn't stop. I drove myself home and made a dinner that was within my calorie allowance. It doesn't seem like much but that was a big step towards changing my habits. I always used to choose convenience over nutrition. Kind of proud of myself tonight!

    My hubs is finally joining MFP. He is very anti social media and won't even share his diary with me! Lol. I'm just glad he is doing it!

    My daughter had a fever last night and I was up all night! I did not want to go to the gym. I went!

    Ate my oatmeal for breakfast. I really really really wanted scrambled eggs and bacon. Really really.

    Going to aquatic pt this afternoon. Current goal is to regain fitness level lost due to bike injury September 2015, which resulted in a fractured hand and hip.

    That sounds hella good. Whataburger needs to come to California.

    But aside from that I totally resulted some cupcakes that were super decorated and left in our break room

    Everyone is doing great! Let me see what I have done so far today. My daughter woke me up too early and I felt tired when I got up but I found some strength in myself and did an exercise video. It was quite easy so I did one more! While doing something like push-ups I saw the floor was not very clean so I cleaned our home even though I didn't want to. Ate a small portion of oatmeal. Went shopping for groceries and declined my husband's offer for a drive, carried the bags home. Spent my money on healthy food only. Took the stairs.
    Last couple of evenings I really wanted some chocolate and I managed to restrict myself to 1 piece (12 grams). This is something I could have never done before.
    Taking it one day at a time is hard but the results come sooner or later!
