I (almost) did good! It has been years since this has happened!


Sunday, January 06, 2013

Well-- I actually was honest and tracked my food accurately Sat. Jan. 5th, 2013

EXCEPT FOR THE 6 SANDWICH COOKIES emoticon I HAD WHILE READING MY BOOK AT NIGHT, THIS WOULD HAVE BEEN MY FOOD TRACKER FOR SATURDAY:

C F P CALORIES
should be 50/ 30/ 20 1780-2130 PRETTY GOOD, HUH!
actually 48.9/30.4/20.7 2311

BUT, ALAS, the cookies snuck in........... emoticon
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon


emoticon I am on SP daily--and I mean daily for hours!

emoticon
I have been checking off that I ate what the menu says but I lie like a rug!



emoticon Saturday I put down exactly what I ate! emoticon
I ate mostly what the menu said (diabetic plan) with some
equivalent substitutions. All snacks listed on the menu I ate in the evening
plus those stupid cookies!

Today would have been a HUGE BRAGGING DAY-but those cookies snuck in!


I still did good--for me. I am still proud as a peacock!

  You really made me laugh. Don't take yourself too seriously with this life style change.

From what I read I think you did pretty good. No one, no one, no, not even you are perfect...how about that one?

I really don't believe that anyone at all is able to eat perfectly the way that we want to eat.

If you eat good and healthy eighty percent of the time is a good way to live and this is according to health experts.

Give yourself a pat on the back lady. emoticon emoticon

    Don't let those cookies eat at YOU. Forget them, toss the rest or pledge to eat just one at a time. emoticon blah emoticon

    You sure are honest. Guess we have to be honest with ourselves above all else. And you pointed that out in your blog. We can lie to ourselves or be honest. You are just too darn cute.

    The first step is to get into a habit of being accountable. Learning about you is such an important part. As you get used to tracking everything honestly you'll start making changes naturally, which will turn into mindful changes.

Though, ask yourself: why did I eat those cookies? Because they were there? Because I was really hungry? Because my husband wanted some so I had some too? When you can honestly answer yourself WHY you eat what you eat, you'll learn even more about you.

    You won half the battle when you owned up to eating those cookies, Chris. Good for you! The next time those cookies call, just remember having to admit giving in and maybe you'll have the strenth and determination to "just say no." Good luck and hope you have a very good and successful week! Hugz, Sharon

    Admitting it and Owning it are the first steps to being able to change it...ask Dr. Phil. emoticon You did both!!! You SHOULD be proud of yourself. Now you can fix the problem about those darn cookies and not have to fudge about them anymore. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Proud of you for 'telling on yourself.' Friday I had one of those days where I couldn't feel full no matter what I ate. I hate that feeling. emoticon

    Actually that's pretty good. Even with the cookies you're really not too far over. Maybe it was thinking about tracking calories that stopped you from eating half the package of cookies instead of just 6. That has stopped me in the middle of a binge more than a few times. Food journaling really does make us more aware of what we are eating whether our choices are good, or not so good.

One of most important keys to success is keeping a food journal and being honest with ourselves about what we are eating. We can lie in our food journals about what or how much we ate or simply not enter something we ate at all in an attempt to make our food journals look good. You're not the only one, we've all done that. In the end what we ate shows up on the scale. It doesn't lie, it tells all. We're better off being honest with ourselves about what we eat. The results on the scale will be much better.

    SINCE I OFTEN HAVE TO HAVE A SNACK BEFORE I GO TO BED TO KEEP MY BLOOD SUGAR STEADY, IF I AM DONE POSTING MY NUTRITION FOR THE DAY ALREADY, I ADD THAT SNACK ONTO THE NEXT DAYS TOTALS. IT STILL ALL SHOWS UP (OR HOPEFULLY DOWN) ON THE WEIGH-INS.

    You tracked it and saw the result of the cookies which is a win in my book. I used to be pretty terrible for lying on my tracker til I realized I can feed a lie to my brain but there is no way I can force that lie to my body so I just quit. It was a pretty big eye opener and stopped me from shoveling more crap into my mouth lol. emoticon emoticon

    Don't beat yourself up - you are back to tracking your food and you know you have had those cookies, tracked or not :)
