The guilt of eating unhealthy; the satisfaction of working out!

I am super happy Friday is here already emoticon

I am been keeping up with my juicing and my jogging, which is making me look pretty good, well better than I thought. Yesterday was the day that I didnt jog because I had to go grocery shopping and because it was my rest day. I am a truly believer that if I jog 5 days a week there are going to be at least 2 days in which I just give my body a break, I wouldnt want my body to shut down on me...

I am also in the process of eating healthier each time, but its just sooo dificult to do when I am at work for 8 hours, five days a week, everytime I go in search for a place to eat, the only restaurants available are fast food restaurants with not so healthy options, but when I really need to stop at one of these places, I always end up makind some changes in my food to cut off the calories.

Yesterday, after having dinner I went to the store (always try to eat before doing my errands or grocery shopping to walk off the food) afterwards I just couldnt help in stopping for a little plate of orange chicken which I was craving for about 4 days and couldnt keep it off my mind. Instead of getting a combo plate I decided to order the smallest plate they had, just to kill the craving. At first I did wanted to feel guilty for eating something that I am not suppoce to eat, if I want to continue losing the unwanted lbs. After thinking about it, I decided that feeling guilty is not an option for me because Iam actually going to burn most of the calories today in my jogging routine. emoticon emoticon

Today is day 2 of my two glasses of juice per day, I been starting this process but wanted to keep it at one glass per day until I felt ready to move on with more glasses throughout a day. So far I had my first glass of juice, which I loved because it gave me the right kick that I actually needed to start this lovely morning. Everytime I drink a vegetable juice, I feel as if it cleaned my entire body while digesting the nutrients that I need, its a good feeling that makes me feel happy even when I cant stick to just eating healthy!

    Franchys, another option with foods that you crave that aren't the best for you and are high in calories are 1) order the smallest portion (like you did) and 2) break that into even smaller portions (i.e., take some home and eat just a few pieces at a time as a snack so you can still enjoy the flavor without going over your calories and feeling guilty).
