So proud of myself :)

Wednesday, March 07, 2012

So the girls in the office are getting fast food today for lunch. They are going to a place called Goldstart Chilli. Instead of jumping on the wagon and saying yay!!! get me a chilli, cheese, spaghetti (called a 3 way locally), i stopped myself and thought "i need to check the nutrition information before I do this". That is the first time I have really stopped and thought about it BEFORE putting the food in my mouth. Go me! I could get a salad but most of their salads look high in calories and i don't want to make it an issue to ask for things not to be in it. There is a deli downstairs that sells huge salads and they have a build your own option. I think i may go down and do that today.

Soda cravings are killing me. I do only drink diet sodas though which helps with the sugar intake. If i go for like 2 days without drinking a soda, I get horrible cravings for it. I think quitting smoking is easier the quitting soda. There is crack in that stuff, I swear!

    Nice work! Quitting soda was super hard for me too. I've caved a few times (and I drink regular Dr. Pepper - not diet - eek!) but then just get back on the wagon. Keep trying, it does get easier! My craving for soda is nearly gone and I crave water more often now. I can't believe those words just came out of my mouth...

    Yes it does, and this has been a downfall for the past few months using this site. I eat then go to track and beat myself up over what I see. I just automatically thought today to check first, then make the decision. It feels good.
