I just HAD to share this HUGE victory with you (after a little background info). . .
Tonight, I went to the Big City and did 2 group fitness classes: a circuit class and Turbokick. I did this with my bloggy bestie Kimberly and had a great time with her, of course! Here are a couple of quick photos of the evening (enjoy!):

Without further adieu – what does victory look like?
At 8:30 p.m. while driving home 40 minutes from the gym, I had an internal fight about what I was going to eat for dinner. I was going to stop at Subway for a turkey sandwich, but that wasn’t thrilling me. I’ve had a lot of them lately. Then I turned my thoughts (and taste buds) to saying “screw it, I’ve earned it” a double cheeseburger from McDonalds. Lord, it sounded sooo good! The devil/angel debate was vicious the entire drive home. NOTHING seemed to light my spark like the idea of a double cheeseburger UNTIL BAM I had a genius idea. I stopped at McDonalds and asked if I could just get a grilled chicken breast (no bun, no sandwich – just the meat) – YES! Guess how many calories are in a grilled chicken breast . . . only 90 calories! What was my plan with this chicken breast?
See for yourself . . . (no drooling)
Delicious! Tasty! Healthy (whole wheat wrap & 1 cup of mixed greens)! I had 2 (I was hungry what can I say) – total calories for both –= 460 WOOT WOOT!!!! YES – this is what victory looks like! Using a little creativity and making a post work out late dinner!!!!
