Day 1

Friday, December 02, 2011

I chose a healthy lunch that I really enjoyed ~ being happy with the choices is key to making this month's healthy decisions successful. My choices need to be ones that I truly like, not just something I am doing on a temporary basis. When I choose something because it's the right thing to do, inside I'm annoyed and mad that I couldn't have what I wanted.

I loved my sandwich of multigrain bread, tomatoes, dijonnaise and thin sliced deli turkey. Instead of Pepsi I had lemon-lime seltzer that I love just the same.

    When I first started my lifestyle change this is exactly what I did. It does work wonderfully.

    This is what i am doing these days. I do my best to avoid the craving for as long as possible, but i do give in. when i do, depending on what the craving is for, i share with DH. Since I love some junk foods, i don't keep them in the house. therefore, i have to travel somewhere (grocery, restaurant, coffee shop, ice cream shop, etc) to get it and i have time to think about how much i am going to eat and plan for it. sounds convoluted, but it is working for me.

    Cindy, this blog ought to top the CHARTS! So short, but so TRUE! THIS is the whole KEY to how this healthy living is DONE! I hope you don't mind, but I want to promote your blog to others because it really resonates success! emoticon

    Yesterday, for instance, I really wanted something chocolate. Yes, I was proud of myself for having my celery and carrot sticks on hand, that I ate instead, but after about a half an hour, with the craving still full strength for chocolate, I thought of my sugar free International coffee in the breakroom cupboard, and had a cup of THAT, which I thoroughly enjoyed, used up only 30 calories, and ended my chocolate urge!

    GREAT blog, that's what I say! emoticon
