Getting Back on Track

Tuesday, January 08, 2013

After about a week of eating leftovers from Church function - and yes they were very good - I'm out of leftovers and out of excuses. So today was a back on track day, and I feel great!

The Church food was mostly healthy, but I ate too much of it. And I have never heard of a healthy brownie! But that is in the past, and I have already decided not to go to the New Year's Open House if I am going to get landed with a week's worth of leftovers!

Or I can leave early and prevent same from happening!

My cupboards now only contain healthy food, so I should be doing much better in the coming weeks!

What do you do when you're off track for a few days? What gets you off track, and what gets you back on track?

Best wishes!

    I'm with 1stateofdenial.

    The leftover food is not your problem. My church has a buffet once a month. I eat a plate of savoury and 1 sweet item and leave before everyone has finished.

    What gets me off track? Just wanting to eat something not on my plan more than I want to stick to the plan. If I've got the want to, I can do it. If I have the want to, I'm Mrs Invincible!

    It's just whether you want to or not, isn't it? :-)

    It's not bad to throw food away. It can be wasted by going in the bin, or wasted by saboutaging your healthy eating plan and stopping you getting fit. Of course, it's better if it can be used by someone who needs it.....

    Thanks for the blog. A common problem I think...

    You could also go to the event, enjoy yourself, but when someone says 'here, take some home' say 'I enjoyed it the first time but I already have so much food at home, and it will go bad before I can eat it.' Then make the suggestion that leftovers are donated to nearby shelters to feed the hungry. You could even ask to start a program where anytime there is an event involving food that the leftovers are donated and/or open the doors to homeless people for a few hours to come eat the rest. It's a win-win-win all around.

    Know that no one can force you to take food home with you. If they hand it to you and try to make you take it, then set it down when they're not looking and leave quietly. You have the choice to not take it. You are not a bad person if you politely decline to take leftovers. If you do take it, IT IS OKAY TO THROW AWAY FOOD that will distract you from your healthy journey.
