Week 8: Reframing
Thursday, October 23, 2014
The art of thinking differently
When we’re stuck on a problem or in a situation, sometimes all we need is another perspective. This new perspective can help us to come up with a new approach or solution.
That's what's going on here. I'm stuck and I'm using another set of eyes to look at my food tracker to help me tweak and refine my eating. I think they way my mind works is that I'm eating better than about 95% of American and but I'm stuck on the scale. So my trainer is looking at what I'm eating and giving my suggestions on what I need to do to reach the goals I want to reach.
Once again I'm looking to cut back on carbs and sugar. Again my mind I didn't think I was eating a lot of carbs because I'm gluten free and I don't eat pasta or breads or even rice or potatoes but I'm still getting in a lot of carbs/sugar. He kept saying I have to do away with my cookies. I racked my brain because I wasn't eating cookies. Then I remembered that I made Gluten Free Oatmeal Almond Cookies. I did make adjustments to the recipe
1 cup oats,
1/2 cup of nut or sun butter,
1/4 cup honey,
1/4 cup sliced almonds
Directions: Mix and roll into balls and refrigerate or freeze! Makes 16
90 calories, 10g carbs, 5g sugar
Hey I need something sweet so I will eat these once in a while instead of every day and 1-2 daily. I need to treat them like dessert.
My plan for the week is to continue to cut sugar & add in protein shakes mid-morning.
