Noticing a Pattern

Friday, November 11, 2011

I have realized the days I do not log my nutrition, I tend to snack more...I know that I need to track everything if I want to lose the weight, exercise is no problem for me, but the snacking is hard when the kids want me to give them a snack every two hours..I also have a problem with drinking water when its body needs water I know, but I do not get thirsty. My husband is making it very hard for me, bringing home cookies, pie and sweet bread..which are my weakness and at night I eat them, he tells it is fine a little will not hurt, but a little can be about 300 to 400 calories and I know I won't be able to stop after a taste, I just wish he understood my goals to stay on track. I have to built up my own will power and say no to the sweets and track everything even though it does annoy my husband. emoticon

    I say no to snacks/goodies. It is not that I am hard hearted..yet I do not worry about hurting my wife's feelings when I say 'No thank you' cookies or cakes she may make. It is not intended toward her personally. I am here to be healthy and eat healthy. I have no problem having a cookie or some 'treat' as we call it in our house. I don't over indulge on them for I remember my 'Why' for being here.

    As far as 'annoying' your husband.. if he is bringing home all this 'stuff' and you are trying to eat healthy..PERHAPS he does not have your best interest at heart. He seems to be the annoying one!

    I track what I eat..I plan what I eat. If it is not in the does not go in my mouth.. it's that simple!!

    Tracking everything helps me to stay on track, too.

    You can always individually wrap and freeze some of the goodies your husband brings you and take a dessert out of the freezer once every few days. This way, they are not going to waste and you are not sabotaging your diet either.
