Battle of the Carbs - I'm Napoleon at Waterloo

Tuesday, October 29, 2013

After tracking for several months, I fully realize that I do better and feel better when I keep simple carbs like breads, pizza, etc, to a minimum. They are often triggers for a trip down "what else is there to eat" lane.

Friday was a bit hectic - straight after work I picked up G and dressed her and took her to the Main Street Halloween event downtown. Basically a safe trick-or-treat environment sponsored by the Downtown Merchants. Afterward, we picked up some pizza slices and headed home.

2 slices of pizza and a beer later - oh, yeah! carb heaven! - it was bed time.

Up early Saturday morning for hockey - I did great grabbing some lentils to heat up and eat on the way. But later that day, a very kind and thankful neighbor dropped off an apple bundt cake to thank DH for helping her with her new pellet heating stove. I managed to resist for Saturday. But Sunday was another thing all together. And then dinner out with DH's family for his sister's birthday.

I did manage to get good workouts in both Saturday and Sunday, but I am up 2 pounds. (Oh, did I forget to mention I had the apple bundt cake Sunday night and Monday morning too?) I'd like to blame it on pending TOM - but to be honest - it's the bundt cake.

So yesterday was back on track. I am ignoring the apple bundt cake while DH finishes it off. Good clean eating yesterday, today and going forward.

    Whenever I feel the "I must have" feeling arrive, and its target is carbs, then I try to remember to get a high protein snack. Usually being low in proteins helps the Carb Devils power....

Good luck with keeping carbs under some discipline and control. I'm with you in this battle. emoticon

    Keep up the good work. I think every once in awhile you need to splurge. I find it easier to keep on track more often when you do.
