Day 2: Reflection

Wednesday, April 03, 2013

It's late so this will be short. Yesterday wasn't terrible, but I ran into the same issues again. I did well until dinner and then it all fell apart when the boy decided to go out for CHinese. Ugh.

The Good:
I was great until about 8pm!
If I didn't like one of my selections, I stopped eating it.
I didn't eat past being full.

The Bad:
Still not with the getting up early.
Chinese Buffet. Need I say more?

    Chinese buffet can be one of my weak spots. It's also a place my family frequently goes.
I have mad it slightly better by trying to see how many colorful things I can put on my plate (mostly green like broccoli/peppers/greenbeans/bok choy)
I also try (difficult) to stay away from the Deep Fried stuff (no egg rolls/cheese wontons/sweet&sour chicken)
Lastly I try (also difficult) to remind myself that just because it is all you can eat does not mean I have to prove how much I can.

I still overdo it on the calories but I feel that some of these tactics have worked toward damage control.
Congrats on stopping when you were full!

Do not expect to be perfect. Evry healthy choice is still a victory and they add up overtime. I
It takes awhile to reform good habits and you are doing great. Stay mindful and strong!

    We went out to a Chinese Buffet the other night and I ate the usual (salmon, french fries, ice cream) and I was "good" because I only ate enough to be full and I quit. Went out of there feeling fine. So, I did well.
