Little Temptations

Today was my day of rest from the gym, and it turned into being a huge potential cheat day (of course). First, we went to my parents house for a pool day and my mom had my favorite chips and dip out as an appetizer, my dad had a cooler full of my favorite beer, then my little sister pulled out a bag of Hot Cheetos from the pantry (my biggest weakness). I went with a big serving of the grilled chicken fajitas that my mom made, and a nice big glass of water. I thought my day of temptation was over until we decided to go to the movie theater. I am a big candy person and for some reason always think its okay to get a soda at the theater, even though they are about 3 times the size of a normal soda.
Could have gone crazy!

 Instead, I pre-packed a protein bar, almonds, and a home made chai tea with light soy milk to enjoy during Super 8. (The movie was pretty good for a sci-fi, alien movie.) I am very happy to report that I successfully resisted everything that tried to get in the way of my clean lifestyle today! I thought this was a great quote to go with my day:
"Self-respect is the root of discipline:  The sense of dignity grows with the ability to say no to oneself."  ~Abraham Joshua Heschel
