Leapt off the Wagon

Wednesday, January 23, 2013

Yesterday was a really stressful day at work after the tough weekend. I found myself craving carbs all day long. Maybe my body needed some energy? Or maybe I just wanted a distraction from the task on hand. Well, whatever the reason, I managed to eat reasonably at work.

Of course I had to stop at the grocery store on my way home, since I worked all weekend. Walking up and down the aisles, I had a little argument going on. I wanted it ALL!!!! But I also wanted to see a loss on the scale.

So, beside the milk and frozen vegetables, I finally ended up getting a frozen "white" pizza for supper. Enjoyed every bite! Scale said up 0.2, but it was worth it.

A year ago I might have also gotten cookies or something decadent for desert.

Even with the slight gain, I gained in positive thoughts and learning.
I count the day as a success.

I remind myself that this is not a crash diet. This is a slow and gentle lifestyle change.

    Calories? What's a calorie?


    To be honest, I'm not counting calories, or even tracking them.
    I'm trying to be aware of portion sizes, and what kinds of foods I should be eating. But I'm not ready for more than that. I think I'd have "quit" by now if I had to be that structured.

    You are doing it!!!

    I saw a commercial the other day - I think it was Jenny Craig. It said they are now suggesting 5 days on and 2 days off. You don't need to be perfect every day, you just can't go crazy.

    Did that delious sounding pizza make you go over your calories?
