You Take the Good, You Take the Bad

Wednesday, January 30, 2013

Today was a very up and down food day.

Lunch - we stopped at a convenience store on the way to the orthodontist. The kids got fried foods, I got a turkey sandwich. Definite good.

Snack - Scratch Cupcakes (gourmet cupcakes). Bad.

Killing Time - bread sticks. BAD. Son's salad from a combo meal. Very good!

Supper - Spinach and Mushroom Enchilada with a side of rice and beans. Not horrible, not great.

Overall I stayed under my calories AND hit my 5 veggies for the day, but I didn't eat a whole lot. The bread sticks were of course carb LADEN but they were oh so good! Tomorrow is a new day and it's not all that often I get to spend the day with my kidlets, so I refuse to beat myself up over this. I just want to continue to work on separating a good time from food.

    It happens you know! It's just a part of life. Just because you had some bad today doesn't mean you are going to stop losing weight nor that everything you've worked for has gone down the drain. Sometimes we go to someone else's house for dinner or whatever and you don't have control over what is being served. So, you just have to do the best you can. It's called LIFE and it happens whether we are in control or not. Tomorrow can and will be a better day!!!

    So true, I too associate food with social gatherings. Yes a little bad is OK. I have started asking if a food is worth it. That is how I got myself to give up all candy. The calories, fat and sugar were not worth the short time I would enjoy a item.

    emoticon Sounds like Progress to me. Spending time with the Kidlets, and making Good Choices at least 80% of the time is staying On Track, in my opinion.
emoticon Good Job getting your 5 Veggies in is a DEFINITE Plus!! Hopefully you had Water Chasers!!

    These types of days are inevitable and good to be flexible about our plans.

    We all have less than food positive days, but that's ok, just focus on the day at hand. You can overcome yesterday with today! emoticon

    Having a little of the "bad" foods now and then is ok, it will stop you from binging into that all bad zone, great that you got in your 5 freggies today.

    you are allowed to have a little bad now and then just keep trying to get the best nutrients you can into your body with a little fun or bad thrown in now and then and you'll do fine

    I am learning fast to judge my food by whether it is going to help me or not. I have also learned to just throw out anything I am served at a restaurant or Fast Food that is served with a healthy item that is NOT healthy... like the butter with toast, croutons with salads, extra bread brought out with a basically healthy meal that already contains a good Carbohydrate source like rice. I have also asked to not have them give it to me or serve it at the table to me. It really helps. I also have had them bring me a carry-out box with my meal so I can box up the over amount of my meal to just bring home for another meal. I have also just split a meal with my son or husband if we know the meal is going to be way to muchfor healthy serving sizes.
