Small Changes..

Today I wanted to talk about something I am proud of, its nothing huge but to me it means a lot. 

A few weeks ago I was eating lunch in the break room at work and I looked up and noticed the vending machine in my face. I thought to myself I have been working here for almost a year and I have never even thought about this machine, I mean I had seen it but it just never caught my full attention. 

I then thought about how a couple of years ago this wouldn't have been the case, a couple of years ago this machine would have haunted me. I would of had to have something out of it, something to make me feel good inside. I remember whenever I would stay at a hotel I would load up before I headed up to my room for the night. You know of course I needed some chips to munch on while I watched TV, then of course I need something sweet for after dinner, and I couldn't forget that late night snack. I mean I was in a hotel so if I got hungry late at night I would surely have to have something to eat!!! 

I feel like I have changed so much in the last two years. Am I were I want to be yet? No. But I am well on my way. The vending machines don't haunt me anymore.

And actually the other day I found myself in front of it looking to purchase something. It was 10 am which is when I have my morning snack, I looked in my cooler to pull out my hummus and rice cakes when I realized I had left all my snacks at home on the counter! (hate when that happens). I did however remember the hummus but I had nothing to eat it with so I thought HMMMM let me check out the vending machine. So after haggling a co worker  for some loose change I made my way to the break room to see what my choices were. So I scrolled through carefully weighing my options, I ended up going with the pretzels which I could use to dip in my hummus.

Bottom line it's the small things that make the big differences in this fight!

What are you proud of lately? I want to know..

At work I pack good snacks and a good lunch. I haven't bought anything from the vending machine like candy, chips ect. I'm proud of that. That wasn't the case 3 years ago.
