That was the case this weekend. My aunt was having her 50th birthday party on Saturday and I was planning on attending. With the weather forecast a bit uncertain, I planned on driving back to PA after the party to avoid any bad weather.
The party was at 1pm, so I knew I had to go to Crossfit Saturday at 9am, which I did.
After the work out I drove to the cute little restaurant where we were having lunch and it was slightly amusing to see family members that I haven't seen in a while, especially my mother.
She kept going on and on about how thin I looked and how jealous she was. Other family members took notice to my weight loss and were pretty impressed. I found this all too amusing. Then when lunch was served, it was clear that I was the ONLY one with odd eating habits.
I got some funny looks, but I didn't care. I work hard in the gym, why shouldn't I work hard on my diet as well? And then came the hardest part of all.
|Yes, that was the CAKE!|
I knew this was going to be a challenge, but I honestly wasn't very interested in eating any of it. It was a cool looking cake and everybody said it was yummy, so I just toke their word for it. My grama noticed that I wasn't eating any of it and she simply said, good for you!
My point being, I made sure to get a WOD in before my trip to CT and I wasn't about to blow my workout on on some bread and cake. I work hard in the gym, and I'm working harder in the kitchen. I could have had a tiny piece of cake, but I know that looking the way I want to look would taste much better.
