So I declined to go.
I am eating a salad and the least additive-filled microwavable soup I could find. I also bought a dark chocolate bar so I can have a little treat tonight.
It's not easy. It doesn't always feel good to do the right thing. I am a tad lonely, dinner would have been some nice socialization time, but I know I make bad decisions at the Indian buffet (I tried it with the co-workers just before I left for vacation).
But I am doing it willingly. It will pay off. It IS paying off. I don't hate my body. That's so incredibly important to me after hating my body for most of my life.
I am also doing some hotel room exercises, like seeing how long I can hold my plank and then trying to beat that time (inspired by Kelly!).
I am looking forward to tomorrow. I am driving myself home after work (a bit of a long drive) and I get to see Chris, eat dinner with him, get my life back together, etc. I need that time soooo much. Then I have to drive back out to the site on Thursday morning by 8:30 AM (because that's the time the people who stay in the hotel get there, oy.) But all that driving and early morning time will be worth it. I need a hug from my guy :)
