The streak continues - Day 4

Friday, June 28, 2013

No cake, no cookies, no chocolate, no chips.

That's my streak and it is helping me make better decisions. I am a good eater. I make healthy choices most of the time. But because I am also an emotional eater I can let some foods into my life and they take over. They become powerful. I feel like I need them. The foods call me. They whisper things like "just one won't matter" or create static noise so I can't focus on my goals.

Last night was "grilled cheese" make it yourself and clean up after yourself night. I chose to make mine with veggies, open faced in the oven so no butter needed and that made "2" sandwhiches and then chose Ezekiel bread and healthy choice tomato basil soup. I was surprised I made those choices because grilled cheese can be a comfort food and everyone else was doing the traditional white bread, fried with ketchup on the side. I am SURE the streak helped. This morning I got up and did mat exercises while the kettle was boiling for green tea instead of coffee. I think I am doing well also because I am NOT voicing my opinions about some things in the house. Listening, yes, but I decided now is not the time to create any drama. At the same time I was able to ask for help getting things put away and the lawn mowed after our trip.

It is a paperwork day. Guests arrive to the B&B for this Canada Day weekend this afternoon. Things are ready except for a quick vaccuum of 2 high traffic areas. I have cookie dough in the freezer to bake exactly what is needed for the guests for their night time snack. It is raining right now but I'll go pick strawberries later for the weekend breakfasts.

My motivation for today - pictures from the trip show that I'm still pudgy. Yes, they were camping clothes and not flattering, but it's not enough to keep acknowledging the weight I've lost. There is still a ways to go.

    A streak sounds like something I need to do with regard to chips. I have somehow gotten back to eating those pretty regularly - ugh.

    But wait, green tea instead of coffee in the morning? Acks! I am definitely not here yet LOL!

    Good going on the streak. I think I need to do that one too. I ate badly yesterday. I have started today pretty good, but it is only breakfast.

    Make it a good one and keep going. I know it is hard with "older" children but excellent not adding to the drama. I know that can be hard

    You are AWESOME. Keep it up.l emoticon
