Lately I have been more aware of what I'm eating even if what I am eating happens to be not so good for me. Today mom took us out for all-you-can-eat Chinese and I had an absolute blackout when it came to being mindful of what I put in my body. For some reason I completely forgot to remember portion control and healthy substitutions which is what I have been working on as far as my diet goes. I piled my plate up and went back for seconds. It wasn't till I got out of the restaurant that I realized how I completely skipped over the salad bar and how a got an extra large portion of the coconut shrimp! So uh, needless to say I just ignored the nutrition tracker all together, I can just assume I was in calorie overload today, but I got my consciousness in check and if there is a next time; which I am really thinking I am not ready to go out for meals at this point; at least next time I can be mindful of what I am doing and be more strategic in my food choices.
