A New Kind of Shopper

Tuesday, February 19, 2008

Today when I was shopping for dinner, I was near the bakery section and I was positive the muffins were calling out to me.

Shopping is different. I have always consumed lots of carbs. It's not that I dislike vegetables and fruits, it is just that I l o v e pasta, bread, sweets, soda...did I say sweets?

When I use to go to Old Country Buffet for dinner, I'd fill up on mac and cheese, potatoes and gravy, garlic bread, and of course a selection of dessert. My Dad would say to me..."why don't you have some steak or turkey?" I'd tell him that I got what I liked.

The amazing thing is though, I have added fruit to my diet and I didn't have a conniption. I am still working through the selection process and trying to make better choices when I am planning meals.

So back to the muffins...I ignored them and bought some sugar free applesauce instead. I may sometime have a muffin, but right now I am working at establishing a routine and muffins didn't make the cut. :)

    That is a great accomplishment. As you can tell by my name, that is also my big downfall. You are doing a great job on staying focused on your goals. I allow myself a "sweet" once a week. Knowing that I can have it but in moderation will keep me on the right path. Good luck to you!
