I have read many articles on how when you slip up on your eating instead of giving up and really blowing it just forgive yourself and get right back on track. When I read those articles I know that I don’t do that. I don’t get upset and eat more I just get back on track right away.
Well, yesterday I went to the gym and worked out and then went grocery shopping. By the time that I got to the store I was starving. I looked around for something that I could eat right away. What I found was oatmeal raisin cookies. I opened it and had one for only 130 calories. That was okay. I could still fit it into my eating plan. I finished shopping and let the clerk put them in the bag with the other cookies – I mean groceries. It was tempting to put them in the seat next to me lol.
Got home fixed a good dinner. After dinner DH got a cookie and asked if I wanted one. I said no – yay me. After awhile I heard those cookies calling me, and calling, and calling. Finally I said one more wont hurt, it is just one day. So I had another one of those yummy temptations.
Well since I had blown the day, guess what I had before I went to bed. Yes, you guessed it, another one of those wonderful, delicious, yummy temptations.
I guess I’m not as good at getting right back on track as I thought I was. Today is another day and I have been wondering what to do with the rest of the cookies. I was thinking about sending them home with my GS but DIL picked him up at McDonalds so that is out (I had a salad with grilled chicken and 1/2 package of Balsamic Vinaigrette dressing).
This morning when I got on the scales I was 1 pound lighter than when I weighed on Saturday. When I at those cookies now, hey don’t look at all tempting. I have worked hard to evict that pound and I will not do anything to put it back on. My goal is to loose 1 pound a week and those cookies are not going to sabotage me!!!
