I do. And I ususally make up an answer "Nah, I just really don't want one"
Which of course, illicits more stares, and dumbfounded looks.
Because WHO in their right mind wouldn't want to gorge on a huge tray of italian bakery cookies?
They can stare in dis-belief. It's fine.
The truth is, I DO want one. The PROBLEM is, I can't STOP at one.
No, one cookie would NOT kill my calories for the day. It wouldn't even kill my nutrition stats.
But I can't eat ONE cookie without feeling like a total maniac who needs to eat the whole tray.
Many of you out there may understand this, and many may not.
Anyone who doesn't think sugar and fat have addictive qualities - You have been living under a ROCK.
Just look up some research. Some studies have even been so bold as to say Sugar and Cocaine have the same addictive qualities.
I am a believer. Because I am an addict.
So, I let the huge tray of Italian bakery cookies sit on the counter next to me. And I will watch everyone else in the office pick them off one by one. And I will feel my duel-selves fighting. #1 feels good about the decision to not have any. #2 still tries to convince #1 that "we can handle JUST ONE".
#1 knows better. Dammit.
Last night, went to the gym and sweated my face off:
25 minute interval run. 1 minute easy run/fast walk, 2 minute harder run
then did the following:
12x3 #40 chest press
12x3 #30 Bi's
12x3 #170 back ext
10x3 #70 shoulder press
10x3 #90 lat pulldown
12x3 hanging knee ups
100 traditional ab crunches
30 reverse crunches
I feel good about these numbers right now. This is the first time I have taken time to write anything down. So, it will be interesting to see where they go from here.
My stats for the day, if I eat everything I packed.
