No fast food...So why do I see my SP family shaking their finger at me??

Tuesday, September 27, 2011

I had to really sit down and think about this and be honest with myself!!!

I woke up today and I was telling my husband how excited I was about not stopping to get fast food every night like I use to. I even take my lunch to work just about every single day. As I was sitting here at my desk, eating a bag of chips, (IKR) and I thought yes, I am not eating fast food, and yes I have been going to the grocery store, but look at the things I am buying.

This is where I had to be honest with myself, yes I drink water all day long at work, but when I get home there is a soda/pop in my fridge. Yes I didn't spend money in the vending machine, but I have chips at home(and dip). Ok, I didn't buy that milkyway(my favorite) , but I did buy some cookies. So as I am sitting here thinking, I can see the faces of my SP family and they are shaking their heads and fingers at me!!

Ok, the next time I go to the grocery store I have to make a list and not just grab things. I also have to find healthier snacks. I love fruit, but sometimes I get bored with the same things over and over. I am finding new recipes so I wont eat as much boxed foods. Although they are quick, when I seen the amount of sodium I almost fainted. I WILL GET A HOLD ON THIS!!!!! emoticon

    Sounds like you are on the right track! As for a Spark friendly reminder... definitely continue to track absolutely everything you eat. You are on your way to embracing a new "lifestyle", you're not just doing a little something to lose weight. You'll never regret the changes you're making.

    Keep Sparkin' hard

    Thank you LOSINGITAGN, I was doing good with no carbonation, I think I am going to go back to that. I am glad I cut back on the fast food though, in two weeks I only had it 2 times, down from 2 to 3 times a day!!

    APIRLRAIN888, I am going to try that the next time I go to the grocery store!!! That's a good idea!

    share secret: taught by curves. u should only be shopping on the peripheral of the grocery store. u shouldn't have to venture into the aisle but only once a month for condiment, cereal, toiletries.

    e eryrhing u need is on the outside, all the ads and no no are in the middle.
    veg, fruit, deli, dairty, bread, egg, meats ;)

    try it for a month...better on your $$$ too
