Today at work there was another bake sale for donations which would go to one of our sick families of the company. I totally support this and I realize that fruits and vegetables probably would not sell much. So, in comes the brownies, chocolate chip cookies, homemade M&M pretzel deserts..ACK!
This morning while looking at all this food, I started slamming myself and putting myself down because I knew I was going to fail today. I can't turn up brownies! (so I thought)
Well, a nice surprise happened. I was hungry, I drank my water and ate my yogurt for my morning snack. Came home for lunch and made 4oz. Chicken diced, cauliflower, spinach and pinto beans with a Dark Chocolate Vitatop for desert.
I went back to work had some meetings and cut up an apple and never touched the bake sale table! I wasn't tempted nor was I hungry, of course; that never stopped me before until today!
Now, I can look back on this day and say you made it last time you can make it again. Plus, I need to apologize to myself “I'm sorry Sheri, I misjudged you and I didn't have faith in your abilities to stay strong, I was wrong.”
What did you do today or recently that you were surprised in yourself?
