Emotionally, I Want A Cookie!

Yesterday marked four successive days of hitting my calorie budget, and three successive days of hitting my current walking goal.  And you know what?  I feel great!  I’ll admit the walking has been a little bit of a struggle, because I love reading and I’d gotten used to sitting and reading on my breaks and lunch again, but I’m remembering how much I really enjoy walking during work.  It’s a nice antidote to all the sitting I do, and it’s a good stress relief.

Not that my job is hugely stressful, mind.  But it’s still nice to get up and away from the desk for a while.

The calorie budget has been a little bit more of a struggle, though.  Not that I specifically want to overeat for the sake of overeating, mind.  Most days, at least.  But I really do love the taste of chocolate, and cookies, and things like that.  However, I recognize that these things should be an occasional treat instead of a dietary staple.  Intellectually, I recognize this.  Emotionally, I wanna cookie!

But still, things are going well.  And my pants, which were feeling a little tight recently, have started to loosen up again!  I must be going the right direction!
