Can't stop when you start

Tuesday, July 09, 2013

I went to get a few things at Walmart yesterday and ended up staying a little longer than I wanted to. So I missed lunch altogether, forgot that I had already eaten my granola bar in my purse, so it being 4:00, decided to stop by Chickfila. I hadn't had that in forever. So I just got a regular chickfila sandwich and cole slaw, thinking that would be a good choice (yes I should have got a grilled one). HAH! When I got home, I checked the two on their website and between them there was almost 800 calories. It put me way over on fat and because I skipped a meal, was way under on protein and fiber. When you start eating healthy, you need to stay eating healthy. It is so easy to slip back into bad habits. Then by 8:30, 9:00, I was ready to eat and it was difficult not to eat every quick food that I had in the house. Will NOT do that again. I need to go prepared just in case. What I should have done is grabbed a yogurt and a banana at the grocery store. I am not big on salads, I do like Chickfila's salads, but I dislike vinaigrettes and their regular salad dressings are really high in calories, fat, etc. Good thing is, my "bad me" and "good me" were at war yesterday and I think the "good me" won out because I didn't eat and eat and eat at night like I wanted to!

My "procrastinator me", though, has won out today because I didn't get up in time to get showered and to the driver's license place early, so I am putting off going until tomorrow. It's not that I don't want to get my new license and tag, I just hate spending that money!!

Hoping you are having a good day today.

  You can make dressing with greek yogurt and various add ins. Then you get the creamy stuff.

I even add some milk, water, or rice vinegar to dressings to stretch them. it really cuts down the calories. There are several healthy brands that are good. I even found an oriental or raspsberry one at Target.

    I hear yah, I've been struggling with my eating. I've been extremely stressed for the last few weeks and when I get like that I can't eat. I try to force myself but then I just feel sick! I love to work out, kinda addicted to it really, but it's hard to have a good workout if your body is not fueled properly! Keep up the good work! emoticon

    I hear ya! I get lost when I go to Walmart. I always spend more than I planned and stay way longer than intended. But what I do is I get some fresh fruit and a water bottle while I am in the store and consume those as I am shopping so I get some positive nutrition and just have them scan the empties at the checkout. It has saved me drom going over calories more than once.

  Another day of learning what and what not to do and to praise the Lord for making you able to lose weight and live healthy with a good sound mind in the name of Jesus.
