Snacking my way back into old habits...

Friday, July 06, 2012

Lately i have fallen into the trap of taking bites here and there, of food the kids left, of little jellies the kids offered... tiny bites I must say, and I almost let them slip and not put them into the log, but today I made the effort.... and the outcome was frightening.
The voice in my head told me: Well done, today was a good day, you had a small breakfast, salad for lunch, and fasted for dinner.
My food log told another story: I had a little bit of this, a little bit of that, a bite of one thing, and a sip of another, and look: I almost went above my allowed calories!!!
This is my thing, that gets me into trouble every time: Tiny bits of tempting food, and lots and lots of them, without my brain admitting to this, thinking I hadn't eaten anything!
And the worst thing: I am starving!!
So tomorrow I must learn from my bad habits, eat properly three times a day, and snack with purpose! This constant tasting and eating, no matter how small the bites, has got to stop before it becomes a habit ... once again.

    Spending time in the kitchen can be disastrous! Notice, CAN BE. I became a garbage disposal when I cleaned the table and got ready to do the dishes. It was really hard for me to understand that EVERYTHING counts! I'm glad you're seeing this now, and I'm glad that you want to change.

    Now, about the voices in your head.... emoticon
