13/21: Each day really is a new beginning

Wednesday, July 17, 2013

Last night as I finished my dinner I had that moment of "I want something else", well that something else came in the form of a Peanut butter cookie, filled with peanut butter ice cream. Some new ice cream sandwich we picked up at the store the other day for my hubby. Well anyhow that thing is 600 calories. So to say it put me over the limit would be putting it mildly. Now really in truth it put me at about 1925 calories for the day. Ok about 650 over my lower end range eating goal. So anyhow, to make this story short and wayyyyy too sweet.....It made my stomach ache, my mind was full of "why did you just do that?" and "man you just blew the day" and well you know the rest....So was that worth it? Nope, never, yuck, my stomach still rolls just thinking about it. Was it good going down? Well hell yeah but once it hit, and I realized what I had done.... emoticon emoticon

So the moral of this story is this.....Sometimes the memory is so much better than the reality. I won't be heading to that ice cream any longer....nope. I will look for something lighter that I can have when the moment strikes. No guilt and no rolling tummy after.

    We love the peanut butter skinny cow ice cream sandwiches. Only around 150 calories. Sweet treat with no defeat!

    We learn our lessons in the classroom (from someone else) or on the field trip (like you did last night). Either method works. Lesson learned. Glad it's behind you now. On to a new day! Have a GREAT one!!!
YOU are a winner! emoticon

    For me when "the moment strikes" I look at my planner to see what I will be eating at my next meal. It's never more than a few hours away. Time is much faster looking back than looking forward.

    Well done on having a good mindset!

I have found that checking the nutritional values on EVERYTHING stops me from eating things I normally would crave. I used to eat completely mindlessly and didn't think what actually was IN the stuff I was shovelling into my mouth. Once I started really reading labels, my eyes opened and my mouth closed. Tight!
