Evil Judy's Hollow Victory

Friday, April 08, 2011

The past few days, I have been VERY short on calories and fat. The Nutrition Tracker, as much as it ever does, got a little testy with me last night when I ran my report. It didn't EXACTLY threaten me with bodily harm, but I was intimidated by its threats of forcing me to behave.

This morning I came into work and entered all my planned food of the day. I don't have internet at home (nor do I have a TV, but that's a conversation for another day) so I have to wait until I'm at work to enter data and fully utilize Spark. By entering all my food in the morning, it makes me incredibly discplined to eating. I go to reach for something mindlessly and then I'm like, "WHOA Tonto! That's not in the game plan today. PUT IT BACK." Then if Evil Judy presists with her, "Only we'll know that we ate that donut... It's just between us girls. Go for it." I go sit down at the computer and show her Spark. Evil Judy's afraid of Spark.

Anyways (sorry, my brain goes off topic a lot), I entered today's meal plan and sure enough I'm going to fall short on fat, calories, etc., again. I could see my tracker getting ready to break out the heavy muscle, so I ran (thanks to Spark I can do that) to the vending machine and grabbed a full on Mountain Dew and chugged. I had something that Evil Judy pleads with me to give into on a daily basis. Alright, Evil Judy, HAVE YOUR MOUNTAIN DEW! If that doesn't get you fat and calories, nothing will, right?

I used to drink Mountain Dew morning, night and noon when I was younger. My bed was propped up on cases of the stuff (is there any wonder why I was overweight?) I loved, loved, loved it.

My affair with the Dew appears to be over.

I have brushed my teeth 3 times and I can still taste the sugar and syrupy sweetness. And my teeth still feel coated in the crap. Yeah, Evil Judy got her Dew, but I'm suffering for it. My goodness, how did I drink this stuff so regularly without wanting to throw up so badly.

Ironically, I'm still short on calories and fat...

    Proof that our tastes can change!

    Great sources of calories and healthy fats are nuts, avocados, and homemade salad dressing with a healthy oil.

    emoticon for tracking you foods at the start of each day!

    Next time, try some roasted nuts. They taste good, they're good for you, and they have all kinds of (good for you) dietary fat and calories. (I know. Mountain Dew is just horrid when you aren't used to it!) emoticon

    LOL. Isn't it amazing how much better your body runs when it is healthy - and how it rejects all that junk!! Tell Evil Judy thanks for this lil lesson learned. Then you can say "ha ha ha foiled your plans of sabotaging my weight loss!"
