In 2 and 1/2 hours I can have a cookie

And I'm counting down. Sunday is free day. I have wished a million times it was Saturday because this Mormon gal doesn't go shopping or eat out on Sundays...the whole keeping the Sabbath day holy thing, and I'm DYING for PinkBerry!

According to the 6 a day challenge I've been doing, tomorrow is also the six week-we are finally finished-when can I get my cookie-hoorah!? And I didn't quit. Holy crap.

Here are the stats:

I've worked out the most in the past six weeks that I can remember ...which has been 6 days a week for 6 weeks, not missing one day. Sometimes I've had to squeeze it in at 11 p.m...but hey! that counts! You'd think my buns would be peas by now.

Also the most (since a while anyhow) that I've obsessed about eating treats and junk on Sundays free I try to stay up til midnight on Saturday to eat my cookie, but never can cause I'm a morning girl, but then will go potty around 3 a.m . and in my half-asleep body will realize its now Sunday and now I could have a cookie if I wanted it, but am too tired so instead I've been eating cookies for breakfast on Sundays :) and then continue the rest of the day.

I've drank the most water I've ever dranken consistently.

Gorged on veggies and fruit the most in my life.

Not to mention that I can't remember the last time I've read my scriptures so consistently...but I will say its been shorter :) than I read them normally...I don't think I've read more than the 2 page requirement, got to work on that. The last time I read the scriptures this much was my freshman year of college in a Book of Mormon class where we had to read 30 minutes a day and write it on a chart!

What I've learned is that I still love cookies and ice cream. But I shocking to me, I can go without my cookie friends thanks to Crystal Light, sugar free gum and some willpower. This is extrodinary news to me. But I don't think I could give it up completely, nor do I want to. But when my body eats my favorite cookie...or cookie dough..ahemmm..I feel like crap, but I am can only acknowledge that I feel like junk, it doesn't deter me from the cramming the cookies in my 5 foot body.

And I've felt the best I've felt in a long while.

The scale not so much, but I don't even care.

The best way to be, ain't it?

good for you! i used to do the whole free day thing. i would wake up early on saturday mornings and make a delicious breakfast that i craved all week but, by the time i actually finished cooking it, i had made myself sick with the 500 reeses peanut cups i had waiting for me in the freezer! i still somehow managed to eat that breakfast though!

Yeah!! all I can say is well done, my biggest thing I gave up was the diet coke and I also feel the best I've felt in a long time. Also, get yourself to Menchies and try it, way better than pinkberry, they have tons of different frozen yoghurt flavors to try, tons of toppings and its all self serve, you pay by the ounce so you can get as much or as little as you want. Its on Laurel Cyn between riverside and magnolia, the kids will think its fun too.

Go Brooke! Thanks for the inspiration.

And Claire - I've been meaning to try Menchies. Maybe we'll go tomorrow night for family night.

Courtney said...

That is awesome brooke! Way to go. I died laughing when you said you ate cookies for breakfast on Sundays and continued throughout the day. That is just awesome. I am very impressed with your will power. You make me want to be better at working out. Thanks for the inspiration!

Sarah said...
