Lesson Learned

Friday, July 11, 2014

I had a very hectic day yesterday....I had to drive to my Dads an hour a way, do some shopping and run several errands in different areas.....When I left home I had the car packed, I was returning things that family members left at my house over the holiday week end...Darn if I did not forget my snack and my lunch....by the time I got to my Dads I was very hungry but Dad had just finished his meal....so I got busy helping him, shower (he is 90 years old) wash his clothes, and tidy up his house...we talked and then I realized I still had not eaten, it's not like to forget to eat...Dad doesn't have many choices, but he did have watermelon, so I put out a small bowl of watermelon, he helped me eat it....we both love water melon....we chatted for about 2 hours and then it was time for me to go....boy was I hungry....
My first thought was what am I going to eat, I won't be home for about 2 hours...I need to stop and get groceries on my way home....
I had a fun conversation with myself....I thought I have a lot of calories yet to eat, okay self what sort of fun food would you like, you can have most any thing.....wonder who has baked or grilled chicken, now all kinds of yummy things were going through my brain...
one hour later I reach the store, now I was really hungry it was nearly 4pm and I had not eaten since 7am...everything looked so good, as we all know never go shopping on and empty stomach.....I got all my groceries and even got Husband snacks...okay I tell myself what are you going to get just for you..
what would taste so very good at this very hungry time....I saw a large beautiful Gala apple, wow now that would be so yummy and easy to eat....so even though I told myself I can have most anything I wanted I picked the apple..I gave myself a little hug for making the best choice ....guess it's true, once you learn to eat healthy, you learn to crave it....
back in 2006 I would have stopped for a burger and fries but now I stop for apples.....
I have learned a great lesson here at Spark people....first it is possible to live the rest of my life with put fattening fast foods.....and that apple was so crisp and juicy I knew I had made the right choice..it BUT NEXT TIME I WILL REMEMBER MY planned snack and lunch.....

HAVE A HEALTHY DAY....you can do it..... emoticon
