Goodbye Peanut Butter
Saturday, July 20, 2013
Well... I did it. I threw out the peanut butter. A jar of JIF, a jar of Smucker's Natural Organic and a jar of almond butter... gone. It was hard for me to do, but I know that I am better off for it.
I thought long and hard about it and realized it is one of those "trigger" foods I shouldn't be around. I was doing well with the moderation for a while, but then it got to the point I couldn't stay out of it. Every time I got up, I was getting in the cupboard to have a lick, and that is not ok. I am just sabotaging myself. I don't want to go back to where I was. I WON'T go back to where I was!
Now, my next thing to kick is the iced coffee. Yes, I have been making room in my plan for one, but I don't need to be drinking that crap. I thought about asking for an iced coffee with no cream then putting Truvia in it to see how I like that? If I did that it would take the calories down to 0. I might try it? I might not. I should just kick it all together.
the Curve game was awesome tonight. They lost, but I still had a good time. I got a walking taco, but honestly, I didn't eat hardly any of it. I just didn't feel like eating. Even my boyfriend remarked at how little I ate. I did have more than my fair share of those almonds though. I know I had at least an ounce or more of those little suckers. They are so good and so addicting! I shouldn't have gotten them, but the thing is... you can smell them throughout the entire ballpark. My mouth literally waters from it. So, I got them and the leftovers are in his lunchbox for work tomorrow.
We stopped at the ice cream stand on the way home and I had a soft serve twist baby cone. At the most, it has 3 tablespoons of soft serve. It was good, and that little bit was perfect for me. It didn't make me sick, didn't kill my goals, and was just enough to enjoy. It took me as long (well almost) to eat that as it did for my boyfriend to eat a medium sized cone.
Tomorrow we are going to the Bedford County fair and I was stressing a little bit about eating there. Ok, that is a lie - I was stressing a lot about it, but I am sure I will make an ok choice. I can have a hamburger with no bun or a slice of cheese pizza. Who knows, there are TONS of food vendors there, and you never know what I might find. I am not worried about it. I will most likely not really even eat tomorrow except for breakfast before I go and then something there for dinner. Honestly, we will be outside all day in the sun, and if today was any indication of what tomorrow will be, I won't want to eat any way.
I got a new Fitbit. The battery in my Ultra took a crap, so I wrote to them to ask them what I could do to fix it, and they sent me a new one! How awesome is that? I love Fitbit! They are terrific!
I think that is all for now - I hope all of my Sparkies are having a terrific weekend.
