Day 15, Reason 15: Enjoying the Splurges

So let's just take a minute to acknowledge that I am halfway through this thing.  Day 15 of 30, and I haven't stepped on the scale once, which is even more amazing considering I didn't even hide it.  It's still sitting there on the bathroom floor, taunting me.

It's been somewhat harder than I thought it would be, and I'm starting to see the scale as something not entirely bad in terms of motivating me.  But I'll get into that in my recap at the end of the month.  As it stands, we're so far, so good.

On the reason my 15th reason.  You enjoy a splurge a lot more when you've earned it.  When you eat clean and healthy most of the time, and you work out daily, you not only really enjoy that occasional treat, you really feel you have earned it.

I love my Sunday brunch.  Bacon, bubbly, pancakes in maple syrup.  I love it.  I look forward to it all week.  And you know, I enjoy it a lot more when I have been eating healthy all week.  I don't feel bloated and gross when I sit down at the table.  And I don't eat as much as I would otherwise, I just savour each bite.

So, before I get too hungry thinking about's my halfway point reason.

Day 15, Reason 15: Treats taste better when you feel like you've earned them.
