Why did I do that???


Thursday, September 12, 2013

Last night my husband and I went out to dinner. I know I should have ordered something like the grilled salmon or grilled shrimp, but did I do that? No!! I ordered the fried catfish. I know, not a good. I haven't had fried food in three months and I don't know what I was thinking. It sounded good and that little voice I should not listen to was saying I deserve a splurge. I only ate half of it and my stomach was hurting and feeling kind of yucky. My mild reflux which usually doesn't bother me is bothering me some this morning. Lesson learned. I really need to stay away from those types of food. I don't "deserve" unhealthy foods. They are not good for my body or my weight loss plan. My body feels better when I feed it better.

    Lesson learned, I love it. Too bad we usually have to re-learn those lessons more often than we want to admit.
Personally I went to a dinner last night that was great but since I "paid" for the dessert that was included I ate it even though I was already full. Then trying to sleep was miserable!
Lesson re-learned again!!!

    Be Encouraged! That's happened to me too often and I positively re-affirm my mindset to gain more tolerance and strength. If ever I fail I count it as failing forward because I will continue to try until I get it right. Cheer up...you are doing so wonderful! You are victorious! You will succeed! You are winning the battle!

    I do it all the time. Although I got the salmon at the Hard Rock Cafe while I was on vacation, and it was surprisingly good.

    I had the same problem when I promaced to take my wife to Red Lobster. Well I commited myself before I started my diet. I had been dreaming about a lobster for sometime and that's what I ordered. I managed to fight the urge to dip in butter sauce and only eat 2 biscuits that I crace for. I managed to escape without feeling to guilty. You have to reward yourself once in a while. Good luck on your goals.

    That's always a challenge for me... they taste so good but I feel so bad afterwards when I indulge in greasy foods. I try to make myself think about stomach aches & reflux before I order, it helps.
Eat healthy today & leave last night's dinner in the past.
Move forward & make today a better day.

:)
