Journal Entry July 2, 2013

Tuesday, July 02, 2013

This is a fresh new month I can do any thing I want with it. I started out the month not eating as healthy as I should. I had potato chips, peanut m&m and ice cream. I don't feel guilty. I just feel I have taken a rest day from healthy eating. The break in healthy eating was for only two days. I did not binge I just had different things to eat that I have not been eating. I did not eat large servings of any of it.

Yesterday I was going to the store to buy a huge family size bag of chips to eat by myself. But as I was stepping out the door one of my neighbors made some nice commits about my weight loss and ended them with "Boy you sure look good". I thought to myself what am I thinking going to get a family size bag of chips to eat all myself am I crazy. I have done a lot of hard work to lose 30 pounds and I am not done losing yet. Yes I want potato chips but a small bag will do.

Today I am starting my day with a nice healthy breakfast burrito and than going for a walk to the Farmer's Market to get some fresh fruit. I am starting back on the road to healthy eating!!!!

  I love your attitude! a bag of chips is not a terrible sin when followed by healthy eating nad you dont have to feel guilty for the rest of your life.

    Great, Kathryn! Remember, you want to eat like a grown-up, right? emoticon We all have times, though, when cravings get to us. I had one this afternoon, but I limited myself, fit it into my calories for the day and feel committed. It's great when you can have your cake and track it, too! emoticon

    Woo hoo, I too am getting back on my regularly scheduled eating program following recovery from my Warrior Dash this past weekend. The scale is up and I don't like. Time to knock it back down!

Go get'em and don't give up!
