And sadly the scale went up 1 pound today! I did good staying within my points, but in taking an honest look at my food this past week, I allowed myself to have more sugar than usual, which even when I track it (which I did) I was hungrier on those days and snacked more than on days when I didnít allow myself sugar. And when I snacked it was on carby things - not protein! |
So another lesson learned. Or maybe the same lesson learned AGAIN! I bought Ken some of those frosted animal crackers-do you know what I am talking about? They are pink and white and sooooo good! Well 7 of those little things are 8 points!! I ate and tracked them twice during the week and I also ate some Hersheyís kisses (again, tracked them at 1 point each) at work! My coworker has a huge candy jar that is chocked full of sweet stuff. I have to get it into my head that I just canít eat sugary stuff! Sugar = cravings and HUNGER!
Iím not going to beat myself up over this. It is 1 pound, and I know I can get this off! But I think I am going to make some decisions regarding the sweets I bring into the house for Ken. First let me say that Ken doesnít ever ask me to get him these things. I pick them up on my own because I know he loves them - but I donít need to pick up bags of cookies! Moving forward, if I feel the need to bring something home for Ken from the store I am going to pick up a single serving item like a candy bar so he can eat it and it isnít laying around for me to get into. I have to be proactive in the food that comes into the house, which should be easy, because I am the one that does the shopping! As for work, I need to go back to taking items for snacks that I can have in my drawer and eat instead of being hungry and eating something from the candy jar! I can outsmart myself, it just takes a little planning. I like having fruit, Liptons cup a soup, fat free hot chocolate packets, and mini rice cakes available for me to eat! I also need to base my meals around protein so I can feel full longer! I KNOW what to do. I just have to do it!
Hereís to another week of learning. I am so grateful that I still have a choice in the matter!
Onward I march!
