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. :)
