Thoughts of an imperfect dieter.
Monday, March 09, 2015
I think you can relate. you know the mishaps and miscues we barrel through (or not).
When we without a thought trip ourselves up in our adventures in "dietland". The times we start off well an then slip. Oops! Well I had such a downturn yesterday (and lets face it Saturday as well). I paid great attention to my efforts at the beginning of the day and into the abyss in the evening.
Saturday: movies with my sister, planned it, somewhat. Allowed myself a small popcorn even with the butter, a lot better than a previous life where consumption of an entire large with a bag of candy was the norm. Made homemade black bean soup when I got home. Had a bowl. OK, not a bad thing. Cut up and ate veggies. GOOD!
So far doing well. Then I sat down... ate another bowl of soup, it was pretty good. THEN I found some lost chocolates, kisses with almonds, m&m's and dove truffle hearts. BAD ROSE.
Okay, so Sunday rolls around and once again off to a fabulous start. The veggies I cut up were for a get-together with my family. Yeah the perfect contribution. This time the family did not have copious amounts of desert. Actually the only deserts were mini banana muffins. and some sugar free cherry pie. Awesome. I did really well...then the pain crept in and I had to head home...That is where the danger lay in wait.
Small bowl of soup, again! as I said it was really good. Then the pain riddled brain said, "lets snack" so out came the Ritz crackers. If I was of sound mind I would have checked their value and realized they were of no value. Checking today I found they were 2400 calories and 300 g. of carbs. OUCH!!!'
Well, onward and upward. Today I walked, not far or fast, but I walked. Started to hurt so I grabbed a plate of veggies instead
Today I am fully aware and doing well so far...until the pain starts again.
