5% challenge: Habit #2

Monday, January 16, 2012

I've been spending a lot of time thinking about my food choices just recently. I keep wondering if my grocery list has really transformed itself into that of a healthy person or if it's simply because I'm eating much smaller portions of everything that I used to eat. I still find that at the end of the evening when I have calories left to fill I will choose the 100 calorie chocolate portion rather than the apple. This works in so many ways for me, mainly because it prevents me going cold turkey on something I love only to overeat it later, but, I have been wondering what a diet with more of the healthier food would do for me.
So, habit number two is to choose the healthier option! I'd like to spend the rest of this week choosing the apple over the chocolate and seeing what happens.
PS - I'm writing this in bed nice and early in the morning with plenty of time ahead of me before work!!

    I like having the 100 calories options for those days when I feel like having something sinful. I find that if I totally deprive myself of the tasties, I go way off the wagon. I would love to really clean up my diet, just a little at a time!

    I find a little chocolate keeps me from overdoing it. I mix my apple with either oatmeal or a sandwich bc on it's own it does nothing for me mentally speaking. If it must be eaten as snack try some peanut butter on slices.

    Eliminating foods (chocolate) does not work for everyone. Find what works for you. Making healthy choices is a great start! You can do it.

    I have chocolate in the cupboard because knowing it is there is better for me than not. It would be a real emergency to break it open as I would finish it (with help from himself).
    To encourage him to eat more fruit I make it into a fresh fruit salad then he laps it up!
    good luck with your healthy week
