Always, Sometimes, Nevers
Friday, October 21, 2011
A comment on my last blog post made me think about my SP Diet.
I am still actively trying to lose weight (and I have been!) so, I still consider myself on a diet--rather than just maintaining my health, fitness, weight, etc.
Part of why I stick with SP (I think, anway) is that I give myself a lot of leeway.
I kind of have my always, sometimes and nevers when not eatimg my regular tracked, portioned weekday meals.
ALWAYS: I will always eat veggies, fruit, good for me grains and proteins. This means, when I am at a potluck, restaurant, or party--I already know what I will eat without worrying too much about portion size.
SOMETIMES: Sometimes I will drink a beer or two, sometimes I will try the dessert someone brought. Sometimes, my meal will consist of sweet potato fries or mac n cheese. I will eat almost anything I want to make from scratch when doing it for fun (like when my cooking buddy comes over and we try something new).
NEVERS: I will never eat fast food on purpose. I no longer buy the cookies I LOVE at the Wegman's bakery. I don't have a bagel for breakfast at work, even when I bring them in for the office. When I bake for a group--I try to never eat any left overs after the group leaves.
I am sure I have more of these types of "rules." And even my NEVERS are really more RARELYS(like once or twice a year).
