Yesterday I was in the mood for some potato chips. Well...I was really in the mood for a chocolate bar, but because baked potato chips are on my meal plan I decided to go with that. I wasn't home, so I went in the store and I started looking at the labels on the potato chips, because honestly, baked chips are gross. And I was SO surprised to find that Miss Vickies chips were better than the Baked Lays. And more chips/serving. Now, I only track carbs and sugars so if you are tracking sodium, this might not be true for you. My point is, read the labels...healhty is not always better, sometimes it is just a marketing ploy.
My allowing myself to eat what I want on the weekends, within reason, is not a good one it seems as it was really hard to get back on track on Monday. I tried to eat intuitively and to finish up the perishable leftovers from the previous week. My intuition is a bit askew though, seems I intuitively want sweets.
So, back to the drawing board.
