The last calories of the night.

Thursday, August 23, 2012

I've been doing pretty well this week so far with tracking my food. I always end up with about 60 calories or less for my last bites of the day. Its good that I'm staying in range and I'm really balancing things between my meals. Pretty proud of that!

It helps to know what I have exactly, and actually I've been saving up my "happy calories" for the weekend, so I have more than that, really...

But in a way there is a little rebellion inside me that goes, "WHAT? 60 calories? That's like a joke!" Then I roll my eyes and look at an apple and feel resentful. It makes me sort of want to rebel. There is this part of me that affects my weight loss that I like to think of as the rebellion brat who doesn't like to be told what to do. She comes out when I am stressed out, and also late at night. Right now I'm staring her down, straight in the eyes and I'm going to tell her to buzz off.

What do you like to eat to feed your rebellion brat? What are some great SUPER low calorie snacks that taste like a million bucks?

  When I MUST have something that tastes like a rebellion snack I cut up a banana into little pieces and dip them in peanut butter (1 tbsp). The sweetness and saltiness is a party in my mouth without too much

    That brat reallly is a pain- especially at night. Good for you that you are tracking your food and are doing well. Awesome that you have told the brat to "take a long hike". emoticon

    Tell the brat to shut up and listen to your better half. You are doing this for your even if you have drag the brat with you.
