I have WILLPOWER!!! (today, anway...)

I sincerely apologize if this gives anyone the urge to RUN to chiptole and scarf down a burrito.

This afternoon, I was out running errands. I was at the library (which is across the street from Chipotle) when JJ called to see if I wanted to meet him for lunch because practice had just ended and he was hungry. I told him I was at the library, so he said ok, I want Chipotle.
I had just had a yogurt and banana at home, and wasn't hungry, but I wanted to see him because he's so busy lately, I'll take what I can get!
We're going to a Japanese Steak House for dinner tonight for Valentine's Day, so I know I'll be pigging out then. When we got to Chipotle, JJ ordered his burrito, and I PASSED ON GETTING SOMETHING! Even though the chicken was fresh and the peppers and onions were fresh (my favorites)... I said no!!!
Now I LOVE Chipotle, I could eat it every day, it's my favorite, so for me to pass because I could literally sit there and think - No, I'm not hungry, so I shouldn't eat - was a BIG step!
So there ya go, there's some willpower!!!


  1. Great job Ash! Now you can enjoy your dinner completely (and guilt free!)!

    Happy Valentine's Day

  2. Yay! Good for you!


  3. That's funny - I met some friends at Freebirds (just like Chipotle, but another chain in TX) and passed it up too! I opted to eat my lunch at my office before meeting up with all of them... I thought about ordering chips and queso (my favorite), but instead took my friend's baby off of his hands and fed him green beans - ha!

    BTW - I love both of your blogs! Can't remember how I found you, but I'm glad I did!


  4. Way to go! I tried to pass on Friday night, but just too tempting. By the way, I'm pretty much just a lurker to your blog, but I always look forward to reading it. I gave you the lemonade award. Check out my blog for details.

  5. Congratulations on that willpower! That's definitely impressive!

  6. Way to go, Ashlee! That's impressive!!
