Wow, after a week of rain and clouds the sun is finally doing its thing. Happy to see it!
We did our 7 mile walk yesterday and it was a bit of a struggle. Then we got our sub from Subway as planned, and did a few errands including the grocery store. I was HUNGRY and got a bag of FF Lays chips -- the kind made with olestra.
We went to the park and ate our dinner. I did not mean for us to finish the chips, but we did. But even assuming I ate 5 of the 7 servings, that would be 375 calories. Not a good thing by ANY means but I tracked it and I was still within my calorie range for the day.
Potato chips are a real trigger and I absolutely cannot have them in the house. TC (thankfully) is OK with Pringles, which don't call to me, so he can have those in his little "treat cupboard" without me getting into them.
The fair food was the usual: FAT, SALT, and SUGAR. Even though as a worker we could order anything we want, we just stuck with diet coke and water.
I'm giving myself credit! I think I was able to resist the fair food because I'd already had a great treat and I didn't feel deprived at all. And I ate within my calorie limit, so it's all good!
I think Vandal's blog today is really good and I want to respond and continue the conversation in my blog tomorrow. Vandal, you are right to periodically review your reasons and blog about them. We have to keep our reasons fresh and compelling, simply because this IS such a long-term commitment to something that is very difficult to achieve.
I am hoping for good things at the weigh in tomorrow, because except for those light potato chips I have done a really good job this week. I am hoping to beat Nancy15togoal to those 150's bragging rights!! (Although she's going to BUDAPEST next month so bragging rights SUCK in comparison!!) (STILL SULKING)
