Whats up with the potato chips?

Sunday, June 05, 2011

My boss comes in to work today, tosses a bag of bbq potato chips at my co-worker, and tosses a box of donut holes at me. I moved the donut holes to another desk and am not going to be eating any of them. It isn't worth it to me. If I were going to "waste" the calories on a donut, it would be a good donut, and not a crappy one from the bread isle of the grocery store.

I had a fresh apricot instead - I think tomorrow I am going to stop at the farmers market and get some fresh fruit and veggies :)

Interesting! I wonder if your boss is a saboteur.

Watermelon Fantasies....

Saturday, June 04, 2011

I am sitting on the couch right now, think of watermelon. I would live to have some of it's yummy deliciousness, but if I do that, then I won't have any for my lunch tomorrow. Plus, I am almost at my calorie limit, and don't really require any more food. I don't NEED it I WANT is and there is a big difference. I am not hungry, so why should I eat? I don't need to eat, so there is no sense in eating. Yes, it is only a little bit of watermelon, but when you are trying to learn how to "eat to live" and not "live to eat" it is a very important lesson to be learned. It doesn't matter if it is watermelon or potato chips, eating just to eat is a no-no. We don't eat because we are bored. We don't eat because we are sad. We eat to fuel our bodies.

It is ok to enjoy the fuel that you consume. I am going to chose wisely however. If I am going to eat something, I am going to make sure it is the best of something (IMO at least). If I want pizza, I will have pizza, but I will make sure it is a good pizza, and I will enjoy it in moderation with a large salad.

Likewise if I chose to drink a beer. I am not going to waste the calories on a Bud Light that I don't even like. I am going to have a Blue Moon, or Sam Adams, because if I am going to have a beer, it is going to be a great beer.

In other news, my boyfriend re-arranged the electronic components so the cat can't get behind the tv and unplug stuff... well, he figured out how to get back there. Yay Leroy for being a smart kitty kitty. He is going to a new vet on Tuesday since his current vet won't listen to me. I am hoping I get a proper diagnosis and treatment for my baby kitty.

I think that is all for now

but my diet is just that way...

Friday, June 03, 2011

I am not going to sit here and lie and try to tell myself or anyone else for that matter, that I don't like junk food. I am not going to lie and say I don't like fried food. Guess what? I do. Big surprise there! I adore those things, and I adore pizza and all of that stuff that isn't good for me... blah blah blah.

As much as I adore those things, I adore fruits and veggies more! No lie! It is getting to the time of year where the heat is becoming oppressive, and honestly, when it is hot out, I don't feel much like eating a bunch of heavy garbage. Bring on the salads! Bring on the fresh fruit!

My diet is just naturally high in veggies and fruit. I am not one of those people who have to make it a goal to get at least 5 servings in a day, because I do that easily. Perhaps, I over eat on those things? Is that really possible? I think it may be, especially in the fruit category, but I just can't help myself! Watermelons are so juicy and yummy this time of year, that I can't resist!

I am sure eating a bowl of watermelon is a lot better than eating a pint of ice cream, no doubt there. Maybe I am eating too much fruit?

Today I had...

6 cups of watermelon
2 apricots
2 cups of cherries (which really aren't all that great, but because I paid almost $5 for them, I will be snacking away)

On the veggie side, I had a big tossed salad with my dinner... IMO no meal is really complete without a nice bowl of leafy greens! It was a nice sized one, and I added some calories to it with blue cheese and dried cranberries... but I needed to bulk up my calories a little more... but anyway...

am I making sense or am I just rambling?

    I love watermelon. I could eat it all day! emoticon

My granddaughter celebrated her 8th birthday on Monday. Her Mom told her she could chose either ice cream or watermelon. She didn't hesitate to pick her favorite - watermelon! There's a girl after my own heart.

    I love the fruit and veggies too but yes you can get fat on them because of the natural sugar in them. But I have to agree the watermelon can be irresistable!!!

    I have to be careful eating fruit, as the calories/sugar sure rack up fast, I would easily eat half a melon, a whole bunch grapes etc in one go.

  I know how aggravating this can be. I actually joined a "program" through my Doctor. After four weeks we got weighed and remeasured. I lost 4 lbs, (everyone else lost over 10 lbs), my measurements were the same, oh and my body fat percentage WENT UP! Great. I lost 50 lbs 11 years ago and I will do it again. Keep it up, don't give up your not alone.
