We both ate's all about what you choose!

Sunday, July 28, 2013

My fiance works 15 days on and 6 days sucks!
When he gets 6 days off we go out..ALLOT!
Out doing active things, but also out for dinner, out for lunch, out to movies etc etc
Usually those 6 days set me back...everything I manage to lose those 15 while he is gone are usually put back on in those 6 days off.
I knew this was my down fall so I knew if I wanted to keep moving forward I needed to change that!

When we went to the movie I let him it the movie theater popcorn and I "snuck in" my own lower fat/cal version of it.

When we went out for Supper, we both had fish...mine was a little different than his though....

It all comes down to making better choices without feeling deprived!
We went to Farmer's Market on Saturday and he was going to purchase a deep fried Churro filled with sweetness, but said he didn't want it to bug me...BUG ME?? NOOOOO someone eating "unhealthy" food in front of me doesn't "bug me". At the beginning it did, but now that the lifestyle I choose is a healthy one and that I choose to fuel my body seeing "junk food" doesn't bug me in the least! I am not saying I never Crave, sweet, salty or crunchy things...but I found healthier substitutes for those cravings.

Ya..I got this!

    That's so good! I have been doing that too. Slowly but surely. I've given up sugar for 3 weeks now. I will occasionally have a piece of sugar free chocolate (the good stuff). I managed two birthdays in three weeks without cake.

    I can't even stand the taste of sugary stuff or fried stuff anymore. I find the healthy stuff tastes WAY better!! :) Your fish and veggie look wonderful! emoticon

    emoticon emoticon You are definitely changing your habits to healthier ones! Doesn't it feel great!? I can now go out and get a healthier option even when my family doesn't.

    Now I need to learn to eat slower and enjoy my food. I tend to get into my "teacher mode" and eat a complete meal in 20 minutes. Not good.

    Keep up your healthy choices. I think it's great how your fiancé was thinking of you and trying to help. It's great that you have support. I'll admit I would have had one bite of that churro!!!
