day nine

Wednesday, August 05, 2009

well - day nine it is.

i dont really have much to say today. not sure why. but i made it my goal to blog daily and so i am going to. =]

yesterday i made some healthy choices for dinner! i made some grilled veggie fajitas! they were delicious - and a much better option than taco bell! at home i also have vegetarian refried beans. i added a few bites of that to spice it up a bit. but overall im really happy that i made a healthy choice with my food yesterday!

tonight after work i am hoping to go running with my puppy again. its good for both of us - and im actually quite tired now, so perhaps after a run later today i can take a shower and call it a night kind of early. that sounds relaxing. =]

one thing that i have been trying to work on is the need to have a dessert after i eat something. even if its not a 'dessert' in a cake and ice cream sense, i still crave something sweet - especially later in the night. any tips to combat this? ive tried keeping more healthy dessert options around the house, but its hard on the self control... i tell myself that because its healthier i can have twice as much and feel half as guilty. so instead i dont buy anything... and then i just end up going crazy for it... any suggestions? last night i had a sno-cone. only 60 calories and perfectly sweet! yum.

thanks guys, for listening every day...

    Yes, they have chocolate. And the Boston Cream Pie one has chocolate in it. There are various kinds, sugar free, fat free, etc. and I think they all taste pretty good.

    I always crave something sweet too. I use the individually wrapped Dove Promise chocolates and have 1-3. It's better than opening a bag of M&M's and eating the whole bag. For whatever reason, it works like built in portion control for me. I don't try to deny my cravings, but I do try to keep them reined in...

    Pick your favorite low cal dessert and eat it everyday. Don't deny yourself anything or you won't be able to sustain it.

    I always crave something sweet too. So for me what works is having it in moderation. I crave chocolate so I have 2 Reisens instead of having the 4 that is the serving. It makes me feel good to know I had my chocolate but also that I only had half the calories for the serving.

    I always eat dessert if I want it. As I've said before, I don't believe in deprivation - if I want something sweet, I eat something sweet. My favorite is the sugar free Jell-O pudding cups, either the cinnamon roll or Boston cream pie. They taste great - and are only 60 calories!

    I know what you mean about eating twice as much because it has less calories, though - when I first "discovered" the pudding cups, I ate 2 for dessert a few times and then I was like..what am I doing?

    Don't feel like you can never satisfy your sweet tooth. The trick is to find options that are not going to blow your goals for the day.
