I'm a food snob...

Tuesday, August 25, 2009

But that's okay by me. We had an lunch meeting and I brought my own food as planned because I don't like lunchmeat. Sure enough, I was asked why I wasn't joining the line and I simply said that I don't eat that. I explained that I don't eat much meat (new term I learned here on SP is "flexitarian"), so when I do eat it, I want it to be good. To me, lunch meat does not qualify as "good". So someone jokingly said I'm a food snob. So be it - I care a great deal about what I put into my body and I'm putting that care into practice. I bet the response would have been totally different if I said, "I'm on a diet." I bet no one would have said anything about being a food snob then. Oh well, I probably am one...but there are worse things I could be!

For the longest time, I've been a hypocrite - knowing I shouldn't be eating the way I was, but doing it anyways. But thanks to SP, it's no more "I know it's not good for me, but I want it anyways" kind of thinking. If it's not good for me, I don't WANT to eat it because now I have the motivation and support to overcome those food cravings. That's not to say that I'm 100% organic and healthy. Just tonight I bought some cookies for my now my will power is going to be tested.

We went in to the store to buy some vanilla wafers - not a problem for me, I'm not a big fan of them so I wouldn't eat that many anyways. I was comparing different brands, looking to see if I could find an organic or whole grain version (never did) when my son spotted the Newman's Own Mint creme cookies - MY FAVORITE - and that's what he wanted to get...

So now, even as I type, I have an entire package (minus the two he ate) downstairs in my kitchen...and I'm turning a deaf ear to all but ONE of them. I need to learn discipline and self-control and I only hope I'm ready for this big first test. I think I'm going to have to try mindful eating so that I can enjoy every last bit of that delicious, scrumptious cookie that is just waiting ever so patiently for me to appreciate all it's yumminess.

Wish me luck!

As a side note, accomplished absolutely no cardio or strength training today...oh well. Tomorrow is a different day.

Enjoy the rest of your week!

WAHOO - just finished tracking my meals for the day and I can have TWO scrumptious cookies! One serving YAY!!!
