Tortillas

Saturday, June 15, 2013

Tonight we had BLATs or as my Mississippi kinfolk call them, California BLTs. Just a little insight into Politics of Geography. My problem was the bread. I'm trying to keep my daily carbs really low and bread is the devil right now. That's not to say I'm living on bacon and eggs everyday (Ok eggs, yes). I actually eat a lot of vegetables and lean meats. I'm trying to eat like a diabetic because I live my mother who is one and I have insulin resistance.

So dodging raindrops, I went to my local Mega Extra Large Supermarket o' Largessity o' Doom and found tortillas that actually were awesome for a Diabetic. We had gotten some Carb Balance one by Mission last week. They had 19g/tortilla. These had only 10g. The Mission ones had 120 calories/tortilla; the new ones: 50. Kind of was a no-brainer.

I brought home the whole wheat ones and had two in lieu of the one white flour Mission one. My mother ate bread anyways. Sigh...

Moving on... I have been having a battle with myself every morning. It's my fight with the lure of The Scale. I keep jumping on looking for weight loss. Even multiple times during the day. And I'm never pleased by the results. I have been successful for a couple days keeping myself off the scale. One thing I tell myself is that a watched pot never boils. I should really focus on my eating habits, exercise and getting all that water. Started drinking Sparkling Ice Sparkling Water to get water intake high. I hope I'm not sabotaging myself.

Cheers!

    Those are the tortillas. I baked some off last night and ate them as chips with hummus.

    I buy the low carb tortillas too. La Tortillas has only 3 net carbs.

    I too have discovered the tortilla/wraps that are high in fiber, low in calories, low in fats (my favorite uses healthy olive oil) and low in carbs. They are a wonderful substitute for breads. I finally gave into the scale BUT set some limits/boundaries for it - I weigh daily (sometimes twice a day) but only change my ticker on the FIRST of each month and only report my weigh ONCE a week and then ONLY on challenges - because I have finally accepted (a bit reluctantly) that weight fluctuates so much daily (even hourly) that anything but the weight at those specific scheduled times is simply NOT REAL - it is always bouncing up and down and not consistent or reliable except as an indicator of where I am generally speaking.

    Those are both really great ideas. Thank you very much for sharing.

    I think many of us struggle to stay off the scale everyday. I now only allow myself to get on the scale one day other than my weigh in day-so twice a week. I moved the scale out of the main bathroom so I am not looking at it several times a day.
