I am so over it...

Saturday, April 07, 2012

... wanting a pancake, or anything else on the "forbidden" list. I just realized that it isnt forbidden if I really want it because my carbs are so low every day, that if there is something that I REALLY want, I can probably have it. I always have room to spare with my calories also.

I also know that if I were to over do it one day, there would probably be water retention and bloating, and this and that, that might show up as weight gain, but I know it is probably temporary and I can undo any damage by going low again, and not make a habit of high carbs day in and day out. I can do some immediate damage control and not wait 15 years like before. I might also discover that since I haven't had that kind of stuff for quite some time, my body might rebel and I might just discover that it just isn't worth it anyways.

So that makes me really not even want it. I was looking at pancakes, traditional w/syrup and all the carbs, and that just made me realize that I do not want to spend my "carb budget" in that way. But if ever I did, it would be okay once in awhile if I budget wisely.

Also what helped me, was not only the research but others sharing their knowledge with me, and there are pancake recipes that are better for me if I really wanted it. So I could have them w/o any (as much) guilt also.

I was just reading another blog, how everything in moderation is so overused, and I agree. Some things just plain arent good for you period, regardless of moderation, so I have to be an adult and be responsible for my own decisions, however bad they might be.

So if I absolutely could not help myself, I know most days I could have one over the top something in my carb allowance and still be just fine, macro-nutrient wise. Giving myself this permission, makes me not even want it anymore emoticon

    Great blog! For me it's all about choices and consequences... I try to make healthy choices that will result in positive consequences.. without too much denial... but there ARE foods I do NOT allow myself to eat... because I choose not to.. .for me...

    Have a blessed day!

    It looks like you are doing great!
    You have everything for calories and your carbs intact.
    I hope I can get to that. I do like my sweets.
