This weekend I was able to spend a bunch of time
with my sister-in-law at a Blogger conference.
We had such a fantastic time learning things
about blogging and social media.
It was held up in Salt Lake at the Little America Hotel.
When we left on Friday morning
to head up to Salt Lake
I had every intention of following
my diet plan that I have been on.
But when it came down to the eating
I actually contemplated eating anything
what was served.
There were the most amazing smelling breads.
And there were
I seriously started
rationalizing in my head
that I was away from home at this conference
and that this was a fun occasion
and that I could eat whatever it was that I wanted
because this was supposed to fun.
I had a little internal battle
inside my head.
You know with the angel on one shoulder
and the devil on the other shoulder
trying to sway me one way or another.
It is such a mental game!!
But what kept going through my head
was that I have worked so hard
to get to where I am.
Is this taste of food going to really make me happy?
I knew that I would be disappointed in myself
if I chose to not follow
my diet plan!
So instead I made a mental commitment to myself
that I would not cheat!
Having a clear decision in my head
really helped me to be successful over this weekend.
I chose what I could eat from the buffet.
And we found a trader joes for another meal and
got a salad and fat free greek yogurt!
Make that mental commitment!
Do not be wishy washy!
Be firm in your desire!
You can do this!

i am beautiful, inside and out
i CAN find time to eat a healthy balanced diet
