Resisting Temptation


Sunday, February 03, 2013

Well, I really need to listen more to my body and get organized! I had brought soup with me to work so I was covered there but sitting at a computer all day (which is what my job consists of) is leaving me w/ a serious case of the grazing bug! I need to be sure to bring w/ me to work lots of fresh raw veggies; and pick up some more gum - it's hard but I literally eat all day long! I find I get tired if I don't; and I know I'm eating just to eat; I have been "adjusting" my choices by adding soup to my diet - I was worried about the sodium but I do what I can to buy the low sodium/light soups. I keep an eye on the weight watcher points too and pretty much buy any soup that is less than 100 calories per serving. Last week I brought in a bag of veggies - it was like 5 cups of veggies and I just about ate the entire bag.....it helped me avoid the snickers that will call my name toward the end of my shift! Damn vending machine; but at least I'm able to not buy the cheetos.....oh for a while that was simply out of control....and with so much salt I blew up like a tick! Thankfully I'm able to avoid all the free soda at work.....but I have embraced how more thirst quenching water is.....so I stick to my tea and water and throw in an Orange juice and a kid's juice box....and I feel like I'm giving myself a treat! I was anxious about putting in my food today - as I was really worried I'd exceeded what I was suppose to have but I only went over by 13 calories......

I'm focusing on the positives and the fact that I'm not beating myself up too badly - I do more right than wrong.....I just need to get out and buy a food scale, some cereal and be sure to stop by the market tomorrow b/4 work. I was proud that I talked myself out of buying a Starbucks calorie packed mocha and a breakfast sandwich......but I wasn't sure until the last moment that I would succeed.....thankfully I was running late so I didn't really have time. Tomorrow is a new day.....

    You're right to not beat yourself up. It does no good. Just focus on what you are doing right and everything else will come into place when you're ready.

    emoticon you have the right attitude, so many people come up with a million excuses and use them as reasons to keep to their old ways... emoticon

    Always best to concentrate on things in a positive manner.

Not so much "I hope I can resist the Snickers."

With that view, what is it you are thinking of?

SNICKERS!

Instead try, "I'm a little hungry. How about an apple?"

It'll last longer.
