Max Atlas Year of Change Day Twenty
Today started out well; I got up early, but instead of jogging hit the High-Intensity Interval Training. It was nice to get some exercise in while taking in the sights of daybreak on the side of a hill.
The day was just business as usual, but some of my mates keep offering me sweets in jest, knowing that I’m on a diet. I must admit that this was annoying at first, but now I actually look forward to it–it’s a great way to practice restraint!
Things started going downhill after the kids got home. One of my kids won a coupon for McDonald’s at a rock climbing party, and of course, it was due to expire the very same day. I don’t usually get fast food for my kids, but the coupon was for a free value meal, and he was practically begging me to take him for once. I had to oblige, and I thought I was up for the challenge of having to go into a fast-food restaurant and order for somebody else, but boy was I wrong.

Big smile for two reasons, one I took on MacDonald’s and won nd number two day 20 feels like a good day plus it’s Saturday so I am mega chilled.
I could tell that I was in trouble as soon as I pulled up. I had made fast food runs all the time in the past, and I was getting flashbacks of burgers and chips on my tastebuds. Luckily, there wasn’t much of a line there, so I didn’t have to endure staring at the delectable items on the menu, but then my son tells me that he wants to eat in the restaurant instead of ordering to go. There was absolutely no way I was going to be able to watch my son eat right in front of me, and I almost ordered a Big Mac right then and there, but I managed to contain myself.
Instead, I ordered a medium-sized salad, if for nothing else than to keep myself occupied. I’m actually amazed that I was able to resist temptation in this scenario, and I guess it goes to show how far I’ve come mentally. Really, it was nothing short of a miracle–I didn’t even ask my son for a single chip!
After we were done eating, I hurried my son home before I could glance back at the menu, and I had a great workout that evening, proud of myself for not giving in to my cravings.
Geo Life Meal Plan for Day 20
Felt odd planning chocolate into the day, but glad I did was a great start and very tasty, I just had to ask my eldest to hide the rest of the packet. My planned Dinner was cut down as I had the salad at the restaurant, however has a scaled-down version.
