I overcame temptation today!!!!

Wow, I am amazed at myself. Today was the faculty meeting of the month when they bring in a big birthday cake to celebrate the monthly birthdays. For the first time (or maybe second time) I did not eat a peice. I ate my regular snack and I feel great!

So, one may ask "What is wrong with one peice?" Well, if you are me then one peice leads to 20 pieces and it becomes the starting point of a binge. I have discovered that I always feel like crap physically and mentally when that happens.

Below is a list of foods that trigger binges for me:
Baked Chips (baked doritos and all the other varieties)
Loaf Bread
FigNewtons (Especially the Raspberry ones I found in the organic section at Ingles.)
Granola Bars

I am sure there are other things that trigger binges but I can not think of them right now.

Weekly exercise routine:
Tuesday: 30 minute AM run, 1 hour bike ride home with group
Wednesday: Run 30 min. easy with Jane, 3 sets of 20 Kettlebell swings, 2 pull ups, and 4 ab rolls.
Thursday: Rode bike home from work 10 miles, Run 35 min. hard PM with Robby.
