Choices

And that's what it's all about... right?

Early this morning around 4am, I had just got up to change the little guy's diaper and decided to stay up since my alarm would be going off in 45 minutes. Of course, I end up in the kitchen trolling for food, and I spy some gummy fruit slices. I don't even like these things, but I popped one in my mouth anyway. As I was about to walk out of the kitchen, I thought, "Let's not start the day like this," and I promptly spit it out into the garbage. It's things like that that will make or break the day, dontcha think?

Lap Band Gal posted about a recent NSV -- and it reminded me of something I did this weekend. We were at my cousin's house for a birthday party, and my little guy had climbed further than I expected onto the play set. Without even thinking, I climbed up and got him and sent him down the slide to his dad. Later, I realized that even just last summer I probably would have not wanted to do that for fear of getting stuck in a small opening or having the whole thing disintegrate underneath me. It's nice to have let go of some of that.

now every time I think about those damn M&M's in my office, I'm going to hear the words "spit it out!" ringing in my ears.
Thanks for that!

Both of those are great NSV's! Spitting out that fruit slice showed your commitment to TODAY and climbing on that swing set...without fear of getting stuck or breaking it. Fantastic!

I was so disciplined in the beginning of this journey. I really took an extra second or two to think through my decisions. I have gotten too comfortable. Time for me to refocus too!

What I think is awesome is that it was just natural for you to do and that you didn't worry about it...you just did it without thinking. That is a great MENTAL NSV...so happy for you. So often we think about the physical NSV's that we don't celebrate the mental ones, so good for you!

Girl, I do that all the time... I think my family hates me for all the wasted food. LOL Sometimes you just need to put it in before you can realize that you don't need it.

Great NSV's! :)
