Pink Cookie Challenge - COMPLETE

Friday, July 31, 2015

Okay...so I kept the cookie on my desk for several weeks and didn't eat it. BUT, I was hoping that it would be a reminder to resist sugary treats and that was not a complete success but it made me mindful when I induldged.

August 18 - put the cookie on the give-away table.

August 12 - It's still here.

Day 5 - Another successful day keeping sugar and empty calories out of my diet. Passed on wine last night.

Day 4 - Aug 4 - I moved the cookie to a more visible location but it remains completely sealed in its packaging. Did I say it's a butter cookie with pink frosting? It looks yummy!

Day 1 - 7/30/15

I was walking with my buddy Alma at lunch on Thursday, July 30 and TMobile was handing out pink #BeMagenta cookies as a gimmick to get people’s attention for possible employment opportunities with them. Can't pass up free food so I grabbed one and immediately started to devise a plan on how I could swing back by going the other way and grab another - but I didn't and we continued on our walk (focus, focus...).

So, my plan is to keep the cookie on my desk and count the number of days I go without eating it. And, by not eating the cookie, I hope it serves as a daily reminder of my goal to reduce sugar and empty calories in my diet.

    WOW, what a great idea !!! I think it would be a great idea and challenge for our team to do the same with what each other's weakness is. If you agree why don't you present it as well.

    I have faith that this visual reminder will work for you, so keep us posted hon.

    I'm routing for you !!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
