Treat Free September -- Week 1

So, I'm happy to report that I had a great week 1 of treat free September!! I had several people offer me treats, and I was able to refuse each one politely, explaining that I had given up any sweets for the month of September :-)

I went as far as when we got our fortune cookies with Chinese one night, opening mine to get the fortune, but then completely throwing the cookie away. I have to say, I'm quite proud of myself for keeping up this with this challenge. I didn't realize how many sweets I eat on the regular until I'm telling my brain, "No...not this month." Hopefully, it leads to a long continuation of refusing treats (except for on those special occasions, of course).

I think I'm going to start trying to find a challenge every month to do. It helps me stay on track and give up the things that I need to give up in order to make this whole weight loss thing work.

Well, I just wanted to give a quick post about how proud I am of myself for actually sticking to treat free September. I'm so tired because I didn't get to bed until around 5 and woke up at 8. But I'm super excited because two of my besties who have graduated already are in town for the weekend!! This can only mean lots of fun & excitement!!

More on how the weekend goes later...hope everyone is having a great weekend as well!!

YAY FOR YOU!!! And I'm going to be hosting a challenge in October. I'd love to have you! =) It will be one where you set your own goal, and then track yourself. I'm going to give something away at the end too! I've already made a badge for cute! I can't wait!
