I faced my first BetterU challenge a few minutes ago - the food court! I forgot to bring my lunch today and I was holding out until I got home. I figured I would eat oatmeal all day...but who was I kidding?!?!
I ventured off to the food court and realised that since taking my health/weight seriously I have not made a fast food decision. As I walked toward the food court, my heart was pumping. I could smell every.single.thing. Subway bread, pretzels, cookies, Japanese stir fry and pizza. OMG....what was I to do? I don't think my sense of smell has been that heightened in a really long time (actually, not since I was preggars).
As I got nearer, my mind was racing trying to figure out what I should eat. Thank goodness the first store into the food court is a Smoothie King. I bee-lined that way grabbed a smoothie and started drinking. As if I couldn't torture myself anymore, I continued walking (with smoothie in hand) toward the well of the food court. I bypassed the cookies and Subway (although that's supposedly not bad for you) and grabbed a banana and walked right back up the ramp and out the door.
