Please Give Me the Willpower……

This is in my house! Typically it wouldn’t last more than 2 days but I feel i’m over that. I think my problem is that when I was younger and in my “fat free” craze I would NOT touch nuts at all! I mean they are fat right? So now that i’m more educated I think they are healthy. They are, but not in the amounts I can consume them. So I am going to show myself that I can control this and win!!

Today my mom and I went to Jodi’s hometown of Seymour to visit our cousin Bobbi Jo. Did you see that Jodi? We didn’t even know LOL!!!! It was a fun visit because she is a hoot to be around. It was her b-day and my mom got her a chocolate pie. On the 45 min drive down there I ate my salad sans chicken but Bobbi cut 3 pieces of pie and I wasn’t going to say anything. I did well though, I didn’t eat the whipped cream or the crust and only a bit of the chocolate. Best part is I didn’t freak out! I felt like a normal person! A few hours later I went out to the car and ate my apple and tuna šŸ™‚ I’ll admit when I got home I did a half an hour of cardio but that’s it LOL!

I want to get these abs back! I need this visual so that I don’t go and eat some PB LOL!!!!!

    Hey, April,

    Oh, man – I can totally relate! (And if those are your abs, how COOL is it that you know you can get those?) I have been making a homemade protein bar that Melissa recommended with peanut butter and have been able to have a single serving, no more. Who knew I could do that? As for the pie, well, that I absolutely cannot do.

    I want those abs, too!!! WAAAHHH!!!

    girl, you and that peanut buttr!!LOL!!!! i think you got this though,with the will power i mean-one of the best ways to conquer your fears is to face it head on and beat it!!! OH and also great job keeping your sanity levels and feeling like a "normal" person-at least if only for a little while!!!
