Merry Christmas Eve!! Day 23

Monday, December 24, 2012

Doing okay! Not 100% on all goals, but I knew being home was going to be challenging.

We made 1/2 of the cookies yesterday, the rest as soon as I'm done online! Not eating dough is really, really, REALLY difficult for me. Haha. Like every 2 seconds I have to remind myself, "Don't eat dough. Don't eat dough. Don't do it. Don't eat that scrap. Don't. Stop." I did eat a piece about the size of a tic tac. Most years I eat at least 1 cookie worth of raw dough, probably more like 2.... But otherwise I think my self-control was pretty impressive.

I did eat candy - chocolate covered almonds. I need to have an actual better snack when I'm hungry. It's okay to be like, you know what? I'm eating because I'm HUNGRY and therefore not eat garbage. (If I hadn't eaten stupid candy I could have had a piece of fresh baked bread with dinner. Booo!)

I met half my goals yesterday; yes to calories, carbs, protein, and sodium under 3000mg, and water and veggies. No to fat, cholesterol, fiber, stretch protein and fiber, and sodium range. Eh. It could be worse!

Tonight will be my favorite dinner + awesome rice stuff, so I have to be especially smart for lunch and snacks. We did go to the gym, hooray!

Merry Christmas! I'll probably not update tomorrow, but I'll update on the 26th for today and tomorrow.

    SOO proud of you!! I'm amazed at your control. You wouldn't believe what the SparkTracker did to me. I put in my new weight and the darn thing UPPED my minimum intake again. Wish I could give those extra calories to you, but I don't think that would help either of us emoticon . So now I'm trying to figure out what to do with a fridge full of low-cal foods when I have a 2k minimum. Well, it will balance out.

I'm glad you are having a wonderful trip! Big hugs and kisses emoticon emoticon

    You have made such accomplishments that I can only congratulate you.
I am visiting my daughter and she loves me so much, that to help me maintain on track, no cookie cooking this holidays. Ok, I kind of miss doing eat and specially eating them, but I have to discipline myself and understand it is for my own good. I am 62 and she wants her daughters to have a healthy grandma.

Merry Xstmas and a wonderful 2013
