Maybe Weekends Don't Deserve a Licence

Saturday, September 03, 2011

Hmmmm... I just got to thinking (after searching, perhaps fortunately in vain) at the grocery store on the way home for corn chips, but eating some pretzels (from the bag, not a pre-decided amount put onto a plate) anyway, and pouring a glass of wine... that maybe JUST because "it's Friday" doesn't really mean that I should give myself licence to eat in an unplanned way. What a concept!!

It's not that what I've had tonight was "bad", really (very SMALL amount for me in terms of snacking, actually!) ..... but what was significant to me was the realization that really the ONLY reason I shopped for corn chips, etc. was because "it's Friday".

I know that my nutritional needs don't change because it's Friday ... nor does my goal of getting back to a healthier weight for me ...

It was just an interesting revelation to me, and hopefully indicates that I've turned another corner on how I view food choices as a lifestyle.

Take care, everyone!

    Amazing how many of these things we've conditioned ourselves to do automatically. Relearning a new habit can be tough, but it sounds like you're absolutely headed in the right direction!

    A revelation and seeing something in a new way is the beginning of the possibility of change. Can you come up with another way (besides food) to celebrate Friday? Get really creative here and see what you can come up with. Good Luck!

    It is wonderful to get those revelations and begin practicing them little by little. Always adds up to a BIG deal!
