Snack talk.

Thursday, June 19, 2014

I have to snack in the evening.

I can make it through the day just fine. I go to work at 9 and have my coffee with fat free creamer. Then I have lunch at noon and occasionally, I have a handful of mixed nuts around 3:30.

Then when I go home at 5:30, I workout for an hour. Usually I go for a walk, but if the weather is bad, I do SP workout videos at home. Then I shower and fix supper at 7. After dinner, I like to have 2 snacks. I like a little bowl of cereal for "dessert". Typically, I have Frosted Mini Wheats or Honey Bunches of Oats with Almonds. Then later on, I like popcorn for a salty snack. I plan for these snacks and try to save some calories in my allowance to let me have them.

I had a little snafu last night though. My boyfriend cooked dinner for both of us and I kind of over indulged in the baked beans and mac and cheese. Both of those were pretty high calories and I should have skipped them. Oh well, I learned my lesson, because yesterday I went way over my calorie allowance.

So today I'm going to snap back. Everything is OK as long as it's in moderation and I track it honestly.

I did have a NSV yesterday when I talked myself out of buying the new Girl Scout Cookie Thin Mint candy bar. You know those Thin Mints are one of my trigger foods. The day after I started SP I ate half a box of them and was at 4000+ calories for the day. They are delicious but they will screw you over so bad!

    Sometime a day of indulging is good for us. Just one though, not several in a roll.
