Inner Demon

Saturday, September 11, 2010

Today I went mountain biking with a friend. We finished around 1:00 and I was starving. As I was driving home, I started thinking about fast food. Like, Burger King. And I started justifying it to myself. Like, I'll have a chicken sandwich instead of a whopper jr. Or, I won't have fries, just the sandwich. My mind went through other places to pick up something quick, tasty and junky.

I guess I'm lucky it's a short drive home and I don't pass by any fastfood joints. I reminded myself about the large amount fattoush that I have to finish up and the leftover mexican-like dish I've been enjoying all week. It worked and I made it home. I over did it a bit at lunch, but it was a success compared to the "value" meal I could have had that wouldn't have actually filled me up.

Later I went to my boyfriends' house to help him with a project. On the way home the Burger King song started to play faintly in my head again. I quickly shut it up by remembering that I recently discovered that I really like vegetarian fake chicken patties (funny, I hate the real chicken ones). So I stopped by the store to get some.

My basket was fruit, 2 brands of fake chicken to try, and buns. Curiously, the woman in front of me said, "never shop hungry." She was apparently embarrassed by the cheese danishes and other junk food she was purchasing (never would have noticed if he hadn't said something). I thought, " I'm hungry". I just had a plan.

I still over did it on dinner and I'm over my calories for the day, but I'm going to focus on the accomplishments. I'm 17 Days closer to my 100 days of exercise goal and I didn't let the inner demon convince me that there was some good reason to have junk food for an entire meal.

Tomorrow: more fruits, veggies, and water to tame the beast.

    Well done you, I lost it on Friday, ate all sorts (some of it was healthy but in excess!). That inner demon can be powerful.
    I'm bcak on track with sensible eating and a trip to the gym yesterday.

    The devil on the shoulder must be making the rounds today. This morning my fiance and I were getting ready to go grocery shopping. We were contemplating breakfast options. We were getting a late start on the morning, and decided we were going to grab a breakfast at McDonald's because it would take 'too much time' to make a bagel. As we were getting ready to head out the door, we realized that was silly. We cut open a couple of bagels, put some leftover roast lamb from dinner, mustard and lettuce on it. We had a way healthier, tastier breakfast done faster than it would take for us to drive to McDonald's, stand in line, and wait for our order.

    Hurray for inner angels!
