Changing my thought process
Friday, May 25, 2012
So, after I posted my Thursday blog I kind of felt the funk return. I was doing dishes and was discouraged by the condition of the house, stress, work, etc. So, what I now need is a little bit of introflection and positive self talk.
I am encouraged by the fact that I made smarter choices about supper. I only made half of the crust. I also made salad to go with it. I didn't give myself a chance to eat more than half of the crust. I got an "ultra thin" crust and calculated that eating half of the crust made how I like it would still be totally reasonable for supper. I am proud of myself for eliminating the temptation to eat the whole pizza. Yay me!
This past week I have struggled with snacking in the evening before I go to bed. It has been fairly healthy, but still snacking. Ive still been staying in my ranges, but again, Im snacking when I don't need to be. Tonight was no exception. I got hummus and veggies and was enjoying it quite a bit. I ate some, but then put it away. I put the hummus away when there was still some left in the container. I didn't finish it...I could have, but I didn't. I didn't just munch at it until it was gone. I made the decision to quit eating and put it away. Yay me!!
So, here is me celebrating that I was able to turn some less than stellar choices into positive experiences.
