Action 215 - Be Stronger Than Temptation.

It's been a long day, and all I wanted to do was settle in at home. But I had already agreed to run a friend to the airport, so I had to make the trip. My husband is fighting a cold and not wanting to cook, so it was up to me to bring home dinner. And he wanted McDonald's.

Action 215 - Be Stronger Than Temptation. Oh, man, that food smelled so good. As soon as I pulled into the McD's parking lot, the smell of french fries was on me like Lindsay Lohan on a bad decision. It was some kind of powerful. By the time I approached the menu board, I was sure I was going to cave.



I ordered what I knew Ric wanted, and then I surprised myself by saying, "... and that's it, thanks."

Yep, I was stronger than the temptation. Heck, I didn't even eat a single french fry out of the bag while I drove home. Go, me! I came in, gave Ric his food, then walked to the kitchen and microwaved a Healthy Choice meal.

And now, I'm sitting here feeling full but not stuffed, proud of myself for deciding that continuing my healthy eating streak was more important than fast food.

And that's that.
