02-04-15 Wednesday – No More Chocolate!

Last summer I purchased two pairs of shorts with a size 30 waist band. When I tried them on they were tight as I was still a little over a 32 waist. My intentions were to work hard enough to be able to fit into them the following summer. Just for fun I tried them on this morning and found that I am very close to a good fit. I still have some tough months ahead of me, but I believe that I will reach my goal by the summer.

Starting out this mission just 10 months ago in a tight size 36 waist has shown me that we are all capable of just about any goal when we put our heart and soul into it. Which brings me to a few struggles I am having once again. That dreaded dark chocolate is haunting my soul each night after dinner. Although I am only eating small pieces of it, I cannot track just how many small pieces I eat. Yea, dark chocolate is good for you, but not for me. So what the hell is the problem? What part of NO do you not understand Mr. Brennan? Sometimes we just have to put ourselves in check and call it out for the world to know. So I am sharing my problems with you my friends and will talk about it today at work with others to make it verbal also. I did a great job with exercise and diet yesterday, other than the chocolate, and I want to see my blood sugar numbers in the morning falling well below 100. So hey Billy, CUT IT OUT!
