Figting food temptations thrown at me.

Saturday, February 16, 2013

Last night while I was on the treadmill my mother came into the room to ask me if I wanted fast food for dinner. Like.. really? I looked down and saw how close I was to my 5k goal and promptly told her no thanks. She said she understood it would be counteractive to my efforts but it annoyed me she even asked. Then tonight my father brought home pizza at 9pm, after we've already had dinner. I've really wanted pizza this week but behaved. If I had known he was going to stop and get it I would've made sure I had the calories for a slice. But I don't now, and it is there on the counter all hot and smelling wonderful. And I seriously have my father saying "Come eat a slice! Want a piece of my fried chicken??" I know he is being generous and he just doesn't get why I can't... uuuugh. I'm being tested right now and I cannot give in.

    Sometimes I think people dont know exactly how to help us. I offer mom stuff without meaning any harm. Sometimes I think things are just done out of habit. Proud of you.

    Hey, thanks for the support. =) I really just think my parents are foodies (wonder where I got THAT from? lol.) and just forget the bigger picture of what I am trying to do. Other than always offering me food, they really do want me to be happy with myself and are proud of me. And I am happy to say I didn't have any pizza, guzzled extra water, and was able to get a good night of rest. And then I woke up to being Ruby-Lite of the week for one of my sparkteams. What a nice surprise! =D

    First, I want to say great job resisting temptation. I experience the same temptation with my best friend and husband when I am home. While deployed I share a room with one of my best friends. She has a naturally fast metabolism and is a little younger than myself. Every night she snacks on brownies, reeses cups, and the list goes on. It drives me crazy and I can't get away!! I know how hard it is but I have gotten a little better with saying no. I also keep a container of almonds near my bed so that if I get too tempted I can pop a few of those in my mouth instead of gourging myself on crap as we gossip and plan our next shenanigans. Good luck with your goals! emoticon

    SOs have a way of acting like there's nothing different about you, especially foodwise, even though they know you're on a diet and exercise plan. It's like, "woosh" right over their heads. Sometimes you have to explain to them time and time again what you are doing and that it's not disrupting their routine. You have my sympathy.
