I can't thank the inventors of Muscle Milk Light enough. There are so many flavors. It really makes this liquid thing sooo much easier. In my pantry I have: Cookies and Cream; Dark Chocolate; Banana Cream; Cake Batter; Strawberry Milkshake; Chocolate Mint; Chocolate Peanut Butter. I think if I were limited to Neopolitan flavors I would be much grumpier.
So I decided to cheat today. The entire way home I thought about walking to Iji and getting tuna tartare. I even went online earlier in the day to calculate the calories and fat. One stop before mine on the subway, the train broke down. I sat there for twenty minutes waiting for it to move again. I ended up walking the 3 blocks. Avenue blocks are long! Don't judge. By the time I got home, I just wanted to go upstairs and skipped the tuna.
So that is two kinda awesome things for me. One, I didn't give in despite hours of fantasy and mouthwatering craving. Two, I got off of the subway one stop early and walked. It may not seem like a big deal, but I wouldn't even have considered it a week ago. I would have sat on the train until it moved. 11.8 lbs may seem like a drop in the 150 lb bucket, but it has given me a lot of hope and dedication. I feel fantastic.
