That's right. I used to have to drive a good hour away to get frozen yogurt. Now, it's about 25 minutes. I foresee daily trips to get fro-yo, followed by monthly trips to Old Navy to keep getting my jeans one size larger. Totally worth it.
P.S. How awesome that my hubster knows this is so important to me that it's worth an email in the middle of the day?
And then, just to remind me that Canada is amazing, Laura sent me what was supposed to be a little bag of smarties. (Not the American kind. The kind that taste like M&M's. Heaven) Except that she decided instead to send me a ridiculous FEAST of goodies. Seriously amazing.
That gorgeous postcard of the lake? Happens to be where she grew up. Girl after my own heart! Thanks again, Laura! Go visit her blog Never Not Beautiful if you haven't yet. She makes what might be the most amazing smoothies I've seen. Delicious!
On top of all this, my wonderful Mother-in-law arrives tomorrow night. She will be bringing some of my favorite English sweets and chocolates. God help me. Self control might disappear for a week or two, but it will be back. Probably.
How often do you "treat" yourself?
Obviously often! I love sweet things, so I have something tasty every day. When I was trying to lose weight I would have something smaller, like a bite of chocolate or a low calorie ice pop.
Do you feel like you have a lot of willpower?
I think I do. When I tried the sugar-free week a while back, I didn't have too much of a problem cutting out junk. And I think I'm ok about getting in my workouts as scheduled. But all those chocolates in the "junk drawer" are calling my name right now....
