I know I’ve blogged about this before, but today something special happened. When I walked into the break room this morning to put my lunch in the fridge, the most beautiful cupcakes were sitting on the table. Not store bought crappy cupcakes- beautiful, homemade triple chocolate and strawberry with cream cheese frosting cupcakes. Beautiful. I can not say this enough. I started to roll my eyes. I repeated my normal “wow, it’s happening again, baked goods that I can’t have…again…”. And then something great happened.
I realized – I don’t want a cupcake. At all. It was silly to be annoyed about the cupcakes because they really didn’t bother me. I just wasn’t going to eat them, and I wasn’t all that sad about it.
Maybe my stomach was still a little twisted from the kettlebell/burpee fun that Crossfit Central served up this morning. Or maybe it was the fact that a good workout in the morning motivates me to stay healthy throughout the day. Or, maybe after 16 days of saying no to cupcakes, the sugar-addicted part of my brain is starting to learn its lesson. And if kicking the sugar (crack) habit is all I get out of this 30 day challenge, I think that will be worth it.
