A Small Victory

Yesterday my mother and I had a day o' fun!  We braved the snow and headed to a spa.  After some relaxation we headed towards the mall where we had to do some shopping!  As a treat for our snow day we went to SmashBurger.  The last time I went I had the BIG sized burger, a side of fries, mayo, and had a big dessert.  I remember on that day feeling HUGELY full.  Uncomfortably full.

Yesterday I tried to listen to my body, as corny as that sounds.  I ate the burger, only half a bun, and 1/2 an order of french fries.  I was full.  Not too full.  Not uncomfortable, but full.

When I started doing Simple Start it kinda made me chuckle.  Eat the things on the list until I feel full.  Ha.  If I was able to stop eating when I feel full, I probably wouldn't be in this predicament in the first place.

At SmashBurger yesterday I felt a small victory.  Not on the scale.  Not in clothes.  But in my body and my mindsets.  I ate only until I felt full.  I stopped eating fries when I started to feel it and finished my burger.

Today I head to the gym to work out with Courtney.  :-)  I didn't get to work out yesterday but I made my 10,000 steps! :-)

I am keeping on this path.  June 2014... I will be ready to take on the summer.
