staying in control
Saturday, October 15, 2011
so today was a bit challenging food-wise. i went out with a friend and had pre-planned what i was going to eat but then she also wanted to get some frozen yogurt which kinda threw a curve ball at me. i feel i made a decent choice and didn't overindulge but it did set me up for wanting to continue indulging. fortunately i managed to trim back my calories for my snack to try and make room for it. however, i then went grocery shopping and picked up a frozen pizza. it wasn't too bad per portion but again, it set my taste buds off and it took a lot of willpower to resist devouring the rest of it. once again, i focused on being healthy, not just trying to lose weight, but what was actually the healthiest choice i could make and i managed to get the leftovers wrapped up and out of sight so there was no more temptation. i'm really quite proud of myself for pulling it together today and not letting situations that are going to occur quite often derail me. it's taking a bit of adjustment for me to accept that i can indulge without breaking my calorie goals as long as i practice moderation. i think its because the "naughty" foods i indulge in set my taste buds off like crazy and make me just start craving junk so much more. it never ceases to amaze me how much our food choices can really affect our brain chemistry and i'm just glad that today i managed to stay in control.
