Wonderful veggies from my garden are coming in by the bucket load.
I have been putting up broccoli, beans, tomatoes, peppers, eggplant and having fresh cucumbers and squash, as well.
Plenty of healthy food to work with.
SO why, yesterday afternoon, was the craving for macaroni and cheese so strong?
As I strolled through the grocery store, the urge got stronger, until I was there staring at Stouffer's, in the frozen food section. The next best, after home made, to me and fast, after my busy day. Well, I just stared. I then walked away and turned towards the ice cream. Oh the deals they had! I stood at least 5 minutes checking them all out, trying to rationalize getting sugar free...but it has fat, or fat free, it has sugar or light, or frozen yogurt or....well. I walked away.
Home then and I loaded up a plate with a huge salad. Spinach and tomatoes, chicken breast and black beans, banana pepper and light dressing.
I can still feel that feeling of let down as I walked away form those gooey treats, but the feel of victory as I ate that salad. It was so big, I couldn't even eat it all and I didn't! Another victory...not finishing my plate!
So I feel pretty good about that. Not a huge thing, but one of many things that will bring me closer to my goal.
