A handful of almonds... and then another

Thursday, January 30, 2014

Okay so it could have been worse... I grabbed these AMAZING honey almonds today when my son said he was hungry after lunch time. (He refused the home-made chicken pot pie but gobbled up the steamed broccoli. That kid is an enigma. An awesome enigma.) One thing led to another and we polished off the whole container. To be fair... it was only 1/3 full, so it could have been worse. But still, I am beginning to recognize that mid-afternoon snacks are easy for me to overdo.

SO, I guess the lesson I learned today is that when I get the hankering to snack between lunch and dinner, I need to stick to an allotted portion!

In the good news department, we had veggie coconut curry for dinner, which is relatively low calorie. Which means I'm still within my recommended daily allowance.

2 days on track, though not perfect. It may be a small streak, but I'm counting my blessings here!

    I was right there with you last night - mine was honey roasted mixed nuts. I think it is the cold/dark days.

    Even if you over did it on the almonds, you got back on track and didn't let the rest of the day go. Good for you. Baby steps.

    At least you still tracked, and got through the rest of the day!

    I can never, never take a container to eat out of because I can't stop. Now if I measure a portion out and put the container away, I am safe. I am glad you learned.

    It's especially hard when you eat directly from the container - emoticon

Next time portion out an amount, take the time to close up the container, then sit back and enjoy - S-L-O-W-L-Y! You would be surprise how satisfying this is and guilt!

Happy days ahead emoticon
