Snacking my way back into old habits...
Friday, July 06, 2012
Lately i have fallen into the trap of taking bites here and there, of food the kids left, of little jellies the kids offered... tiny bites I must say, and I almost let them slip and not put them into the log, but today I made the effort.... and the outcome was frightening.
The voice in my head told me: Well done, today was a good day, you had a small breakfast, salad for lunch, and fasted for dinner.
My food log told another story: I had a little bit of this, a little bit of that, a bite of one thing, and a sip of another, and look: I almost went above my allowed calories!!!
This is my thing, that gets me into trouble every time: Tiny bits of tempting food, and lots and lots of them, without my brain admitting to this, thinking I hadn't eaten anything!
And the worst thing: I am starving!!
So tomorrow I must learn from my bad habits, eat properly three times a day, and snack with purpose! This constant tasting and eating, no matter how small the bites, has got to stop before it becomes a habit ... once again.
