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?
