on thursday night, one of my daughter's birthdays, we went and had japanese... at the time it seemed like a good idea, but they even ruined the veggies by all that butter!!

so i ate the daggone rice anyway, and on friday i was soooooo draggin... i felt so blah...

and that's when i remembered, "oh... that's why i eat clean..."...

I read something that is helping me now.
I'm very disciplined when it comes to other areas of my life. (I made a list!)

So if I can be disciplined in those areas, I know I can do better in this one.

Also, the prep really does help me. I made a list of goals, one being that I will prep my groceries within 24 hours of bringing them home. When they are at eye level and already cut, I'm going to eat those veggies over the nuked cheese and tortillas. emoticon

And finally - I give myself a break. I was raised on "super sugar smacks" cereal. Sugar on your grapefruit. Peanut butter and butter sandwiches. Crappy yogurt that was a candy bar in a container. Popcorn with butter. That's in my mindset. I am a healthy person now, and if I "slip up" every once and a's ok. Look how far I've come.

We can do it!

Planning and prepping definitely makes a huge different. Also packing a cooler. I would never stay on track if I didn't have my snack/meals planned for the day. I may look dorky carrying my cooler everywhere but I definitely feel great when I do it!! emoticon

Lately I've been prepping all lunches on the weekend for the week. MRE's is what RACHEL_MAC calls them, Meal ready to eat. Check out her blog.
You can change things up and get creative so you don't get bored. Then for supper I am going to start making a double batch so I can have leftovers for the next night. With two little kids it get's stressful making clean meals every night.

yup...had one of those days yesterday, myself.

I notice I'm more apt to do these nasty things to myself when I have gone too long without eating. Like yesterday, I was at the place where I do chair massage all afternoon, and had next to nothing for lunch, so on the way home, my car stopped at the dollar store where you can get a bag of chewy gummy candy for $1. I managed to chow down the entire bag. Yukh!

Other times, when I wait to long to make meal prep, I will want to do something fast - like nuke some cheese on a couple tortillas, rather than take time to make salad, veggies, etc.

The hunger kinda creeps up when I'm otherwise occupied, till I guess the blood sugar crashes, I get anxious and irritable, etc.

So what are some approaches to this? Set the alarm? prepare meals in advance? Something like that.

I'm the exact same way but I go way overboard and binge. It's frustrating and my body hates me when I do it and I always regret it the next day. I try moderation and it always back fires and ends in a disaster.

I'm on track today, but yesterday I ate a large cupcake with frosting AND a small bag of gummy fish. Today - too much information - sooooo gassy! My body was saying "yuck"! I have to remember that. My brain said yes and my body said yuck.

Sigh. I really try. I have such a "good girl" vs. "bad girl" mentality. I have such trouble with "a little bit". It's overboard or not at all.
