I think it's progress

Sunday, August 09, 2009

I have some real issues with food..issues that are almost passive-aggressive in that I eat and don't remember I ate it..I was on the phone a bunch today and noticed an entire sleeve of ritz crackers disappeared. Granted, I opened this sleeve a few days ago, but the other fourth of the package shouldn't have all disappeared TODAY! Well, I got a Taco bell craving around 10:30 and decided I really wanted it. I thought I'd be smart about it and look up the nutritional info. If I'm gonna give in to a craving, I'll do it the smart way. I had about 300-400 calories left according to my spark nutrition page (including that ritz sleeve). I found 2 tacos each about 100-130 calories and both would keep me under my fat content as well. I got in my car, got to the end of my street and realized how stupid this was. I didn't exercise today (well I went for a walk, but that's nothing compared to the gym time I've been putting in), so my metabolism isn't revved and ready to burn the crap I'm about to ingest. I still wanted this bad food, but I didn't need to drive at now 11pm to go get it. I decided instead to use my lowfat-low cal light flatbread, smear on some fat free refried beans and sprinkle it with 1/4 c of 2% milk cheddar cheese.

True, I still ate, but I chose a better option, and more importantly DID NOT DRIVE TO TACO BELL to spend money on unnecessarily bad food. Really, what was I thinking?

Maybe in another week, I'll make an entry about how I didn't eat when I had the craving, but I feel not going to Taco Bell was a big success. Haha Reward the small baby steps, right?


Here we are again...

Almost 2 years ago I made a post with the same thought I'm having now. I'm determined this time..I've logged my food the past 4 days..I've even been logging my food the night before and making small adjustments the next day to compensate for what I changed, or didn't eat, or the other morsels I put in my mouth. Right now my goal is just to log everything I'm eating. Oddly enough, even though I'm not eating the healthiest of foods everyday, I'm staying under my calorie count, which is good. Next step: incorporate more and more fruit and veggies to balance those calories. I started by having a salad with every meal..that will at least get some veggies in...I'm shooting for adding broccoli tomorrow...baby steps, right? :) I believe in myself this time. I may need to say that everyday for a while before it sinks in, but I'm worth it and it's about time I take care of my body...as they say, it's the only one I've got!

Peace (Pace)

    Good luck to you!! You're not alone in your struggle. The important thing is to get back up when you fall.

Well I got off track again. I'm determined to lose the weight again. I got very close to the 120's last time thanks to this website, but then I stopped using it. I'm mostly tired of having no energy or strength. I'm ready to get back into the game! I WILL lose this weight before I move in August!
