Eureka I found it!

Had to be at a conference crazy early so missed chance to do the workout in the morning. The conference ran all day and by the end I was exhausted and weighed down with anxiety about follow-up work. I really, really, really wanted to grab a bottle of wine, drink a glass instead of dinner and then go to bed. But today's strength training was all exercises I like so I hit the gym instead and feel a million times better for it. Brought my own food and managed to resist the croissants, pastry, sandwiches, chips and even the giant warm cookies during the afternoon break. I didn't think I had one of those inner mules everyone talks about but maybe she was in there all the time lol.

Outstanding job Ellie!!! Love hearing this victory days... reminds me that the fight is in our minds and that when you set it to winning...the body just follows! Thank you for sharing it.

    You are an inspiration! Choosing the less easy path can be challenging, but you showed your inner strength (as well as outer)...

      Awesome! You've got the willpower and discipline in there. I could have told you that. Embrace that smug feeling - you've earned it - and it'll help you power through again the next time you've got a tough day to face!

            Big warm cookies? Working out after a long day? No wine? No chips, etc.? Your inner mule is alive and kicking!

              That’s awesome! It’s so easy to give in and you didn’t.
