When you go into a restaurant intent on eating healthy, scan the menu and find something that looks healthy, read the description and decide if it meets your criteria. Close the menu and put it down. Decision made! If you realize while reading the description that it has cheese or something you can't have find the next thing. Either way, just make a snap decision and don't peruse the rest of the menu! That's when you get in trouble. Don't give yourself that option!
I talk myself out of good choices all the time. But I am getting better at making a quick healthy choice. The longer you think about it the more likely you are to justify a bad decision. "well, I will just make sure I work out when I get home" or "I will eat really healthy tomorrow". Don't do it!

It is a split second in time that can change your life --for good or for bad. In every second you have a chance to do what is right for you (what is going to bring you health and happiness long term) or do what is giving you instant gratification (but regret later). I try to remember it is about this second and stay positive in my thoughts and actions. I try to choose what will bring me lasting health or happiness. Sick of regrets. 189
My sisters and I will often buy bulk items and split it and the cost between us, 10 pounds of potatoes would be much too much for just DH and I. But split 4 ways it's just enough. When one of us sees a bargain, we'll call the others to see if they need or want to share.
Recent bargains: 5lbs sharp cheddar cheese: 10.50 (5.25 split with one sister)
25lbs organic long grain brown rice: 23.00 (Split 3 ways)
