Surrounded by bad stuff today

In my car as I type are the following items:  1 pound of DeBrands assorted gourmet chocolates, 4 gourmet truffles, 1 1/2 dozen Cookie Cottage Cookies, & 2 bottles of Casa Salad dressing.  I'm putting together a business thank you gift of local Fort Wayne items & had to pick everything up today.  In addition, I had lunch with a favorite friend who shares my love for McDonald's Diet Coke so lunch was fast food.  The good news is that I had a Happy Meal with a Diet Coke & apples & have steared clear of the sugar rush that is in my car.  I have had to ask myself 100 times today, "Is that bite worth wasted calories?"  Even if the answer had been YES (and DeBrands truffles are so worth it!) I still kept my cool & avoided them.  Today wasn't a day for cheating & as long as I have the will power I should use it I figure. 

I also had coffee this afternoon with a friend who I just adore.  He's great fun, wonderful energy, and cute too!  He seemed very impressed by my pink goal & all that I was working toward which made me feel great.  He commented as I was leaving that he was anxious to see the transformation as it takes place over these next several months.  ME TOO!  I never really thought about it until he said that, but this is a transformation for sure.  It seems to be transforming thoughts, my focus, my will power, my physical endurance, and even my physical body.  I'm starting to see some of the transformations inside & out & am still overwhelmed by the difference a few weeks & one big pink goal can make.  Who know all of this would come just from the decision to walk 60 miles???  What a great gift!
