So Far this weekend UPDATED

Saturday, May 25, 2013

Heading into the weekend, we went to see Fast and Furious 6... really GOOD!

Ate at the mall, had Chinese food (white rice, brown is not an option) and orange chicken. I could have made a different choice but I had wiggle room and I haven't eaten it in months so I got that and enjoyed it!! We shared some popcorn later so today is sodium relocation day!!!

My girl came home from work (works for a bakery). With FRESH Doughnuts! So that is what I had for breakfast. I had one and do not feel crazy out of control bingey, so will make good choices the rest of the day. Her band is playing tonight so we hope to go which would include lots of dancing!

Tomorrow we will Walk Stitchy and BBQ Chicken, vegetarian baked beans and asparagus.

So is it a perfect weekend? No. But I do not strive for that. I want to enjoy my life and be as healthy I can while I lose weight.

Enjoy your weekend whatever you do! LIFE IS MADE TO LIVE AND ENJOY! ( within reason) lol

UPDATE- a short 6 hours later, I realize...
Eating the doughnut, it was a mistake because it has lead to sugar cravings and bad choices the rest of the day!
I have been hungry, ill prepared (ate chili dogs for lunch while I got tires put on my truck), eaten those nasty little orange sugar slices which used to be my favorite, made rocky road candy to take to a party tonight and at least 4 peices have been shoved in my mouth, I'm over calories and fat for the day and haven't even had dinner yet.

Oh that sneaky little doughnut! I thought I had my self together after a few good weeks but I dont. I dropped my guard and it lead to a bingey sugar day! Just when I think I have it all together, I set my self up to fail. I am not stronger than the doughnut and I'm not stronger than my sugar addiction. Not yet. But I will be. One day. Until then...NO FRIGGIN DOUGHNUTS!!!!!!!

    I am a little late reading this one. I can so relate to letting a little sugar send me into a "feeding frenzy".

    Sugar is my crack. I fight the fight EVERY day.

    * But are you better armed than the doughnuts? Look for foods/spices/nutrients that might knock down sugar cravings or eating patterns that keep the blood sugar lower throughout the day.

    You have the best attitude about perfectionism. I love your approach! I struggle with that kind of attitude a bit, so thank you for reinforcing that it’s really okay to have treats as part of a happy and healthy life. J

    It's weird, but if I tried to eat a doughnut for breakfast, (especially if I did not have any protein) the same thing would happen to me, but if I have it later in the day I can handle it better and it would not lead to those cravings.

    I cannot eat any baked goods because it always leads to cravings for the rest of the day (at least)!

    We all have to learn these lessons huh?!? I was reading your blog and it just so happens that my man brought home warm Krispy Kreme donuts. I has one and then a half of a 'special' Key lime one. Ug. I felt a bit sick but wanted more. I started with the plan of just trying half.

    Later I looked but the calories on my phone. I then kept telling myself that I could have had TWO of my VitaTops, which would have been fiber and protein too to satisfy my hunger. I need to know that in my head.

    However, I go over on other things like having a corn muffin and some fries. These however did not cause cravings. YOu are right Darn those tricky sneaky donuts. I think we should call then DoeNONuts, or perhaps something more creative. By the way, I still have 10 sitting right over there on the kitchen counter.

    We got this. emoticon

    you are so good because you OBSERVED yourself, recognized, that, oops, sugar begs for more sugar...

    but the best thing about you is you are a realist...your asian cuisine that you knew wasn't 'perfect' but you ENJOYED it and didn't feel guilty...that is the attitude... acknowledge it for the rest of us to help us learn and see you didn't wipe out just because you had a non-productive one day

    thank you SO much... emoticon

    One of the best tips I was given, when I first joined SP, was "never, ever eat sugar on an empty stomach, or without protein, or if you are not feeling mentally good". So, if I have had a good meal, heavy on protein, and I am feeling rested and happy, I might be able to eat a bit of sugar without going off the rails. Oh, I could so relate to the domino effect you experienced today - ugh. HIGH PROTEIN BREAKFAST, doll (yes, this is me YELLING at you ; ) And tell that girl of yours what I tell my husband when he brings home things like boxes of donuts - "you are making my life harder". Okay, yes, I realize that sounds silly when you think of the problems some people have but, let's face it, boxes of sugarbombs are a problem for me, and consuming excess sugar causes health problems, so, yes, it actually is a problem. Hang in there, honey, and come visit me! emoticon (pretend this sign has donuts in the middle, instead of cigarettes) emoticon

    Oh, you are a stronger woman than me. If I ate a donut on an empty stomach I would be (a) asleep within 1/2 an hour and (b) craving sugar all day, like a fiend. I am so glad no one delivers boxes of donuts to my house.... emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon m emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon Yes, much better to strive for progress, which is attainable than for perfection which is an illusion. I am so glad you are doing so well.

    "So is it a perfect weekend? No. But I do not strive for that. I want to enjoy my life and be as I can while I lose weight. "
    * Amen! I would take your not perfect weekend over many people's "perfect" one.

    Sounds like you are having a balanced weekend so far. Really glad to hear. Glad you liked the movie as well.

    Keep striving for awesome!
