SO, today my food choices were slightly limited. We helped a friend to paint his house... and had lunch and diner there. Lunch was easy. They provided wholemeal buns, cheese, chicken, fruit and veg, so choosing healthy food was easy, yet tempting to just nibble on the fruits. Dinner though was a different situation: take away pizza. I tried to check out the calories and stuff online on my phone, couldn't find anything though. I ate three slices Hawaiian Pizza, I could have easily eaten so much more... I was so hungry... I am still hungry... so I think I will go to bed now.. because I'm hungry and looking forward to breakfast. It really shows how empty those calories are, hardly anything to it, except lots of calories and fat... I can't even remember the last time I ate take away pizza, I usually make my own pizza with a wholemeal crust... much more filling and after three pieces you're stuffed to the ears.
Last night I was also proud of my choices... I was hungry and VERY eager for dinner... zucchini chicken and brown rice... and I think I cheated a bit when I put my brown rice on the plate.. hunger made my eyes bigger... yet I didn't finish it... at one point all of a sudden I felt satisfied and stopped eating, knowing that dessert was still coming. And dessert as well, I didn't finish it, I felt satisfied. Wow... that was a great feeling, to know when to stop and actually doing it. I wished I felt full now though... or satisfied... yet, I have brushed my teeth and I don't wanna go over my calories... and I will enjoy tomorrows breakfast so much more if I don't eat something now.
Tomorrow I have to face new choices again: we're out for lunch at someones house. It's a youthgroup leaders meeting so everyone brings something to share... lots of temptations... and I still can't think of anything to bring myself... something healthy and yumm... grrrr.... brain seems fried. Any ideas??????

    you usually can find out approx calories by using Calorie King. You may get a shock with the amount in each piece though. Even the vergetarian ones are high.
    It is all just a learning curb that we all need to go through and you are learning.

    How about taking a wrap? They are easy to make and then you will not have guilt feelings. I buy a packet of whole wheat wrappers every week and find the invaluable.
    If I am going somewhere that I know will be a problem for me. I make up my own wrap to take with me .. Hugs Susie emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
