Corn muffins and Coconut

Friday, December 07, 2012

I was asked to bring corn muffins to a dinner party this week. I made the mistake of bringing home the leftovers. I must be very careful to limit that treat, but I am enjoying each bite. For extra fiber I have an ounce of dry coconut almost every day. These special treats make me smile. I do save them for after some exercise. Too much deprivation at this time of year only leads me to bigger 'sins'. I plan my treats so they fit into my calorie plan and so far they have fit just fine. Do you plan treats or do you have another method of navigating this food laden time of year?

    A small banana, raisins, carrots, a few nuts or a dark chocolate kiss are part of my snack treats.

    I don't plan them but I do track them. Usually I stick to the same ones.

    I write down everything I eat and drink (with calories) and have never gone over 1500 calories, usually between 800 to 1200 calories.

Great job in planning yours. emoticon

    I try to work my sweets in with my tracking, and have been pretty successful so far this month, but of course, the month is still young, actually I did ook in November also, just no weight loss.

    One tip that I got on this website was to wait 10 minutes before eating a make sure I really want it.....sometimes this helps...other times it doesn't....but it always makes me stop and think before I eat it.......tale care and emoticon
