Z is for Zipper!

The one that went up on my smaller pants!  After thirty days of blogging A to Z, eating clean and healthy, and exercising, I can say I've made the most progress in this month than any other one so far.  I've taken better care of myself, watched every bite going in, and I am exercising on a better schedule.

I'm trying hard.

Zipping up my favorite knock-around-pants was the best feeling, so it helped me make decision at an impromptu dinner last night.  I was surprised by a family member wanting to take us to the local steak place.  Could not pass up 2 bites with bread of the seafood fondue appetizer.  Then, I ate a salad with balsamic vinegar, and some salmon with rice and veggies.  I brought half home for lunch tomorrow.  No dessert, no alcohol, and unsweetened ice tea.  Wow.  I can't believe I was able to do that.  Anyone who knows me would not have guessed I would order that and not eat it all.

It was the pants. :)
