So glad I went back
Tuesday, October 28, 2014
So glad I went back to the nutrition tracker. Not that it is all correct, and I am one to type in the specific stats from the package if I see it is not correct. But it is an easy way to see what is going into you. And to see what you can still have for the day. I am really making a point to be precise on my carb counts for the day. I am doing well.
Today I was thinking... this logging what I will eat tomorrow is really a key in me staying on track. I want to keep focused and do this every single day. And when I one day look back, a year will have passed.
I found out tonight I won 20 lbs of pork from a raffle I bought 6 tickets to during the summer. My father in law called and told us and asked when we could come get it. I remember I put my name on 2, hubby on 2, and son on 2 tickets. I don't know what kind of pork I won, just that it is 20 lbs! So, Saturday we will go pick it up. Going there is a trigger for me. I tend to eat crap food because they never have anything healthy, or not eat at all which makes people upset but they get more mad at me if I bring my own food. So I will pass on eating while I am there then go home and eat right. I am not up for dealing with drama or people who want to start trouble so I am praying it is just my ma and father in laws there.
Tonight was a hefty healthy salad. Very filling! Had an apple for a treat. Tomorrow, will be stuffed peppers low carb style. That is another point I want to make for myself to recall if I go back and look. When I log what I will eat the next day I always start with dinner. This is because I feed more than myself and dinner has the most risk of me straying off track. So, with me starting with dinner I am better able to build a successful day for myself.
I am in love with teas in the fall. They have so many flavors to choose from. What is everyone's favorite tea? I am digging the apple cider tea currently. In the winter I love peppermint tea. My standard all year round favorite tea is orange spice. I look forward to my tea during the day. Sometimes using it as a treat for the day. I am also a coffee freak! But I am trying to tame that devil lol. Yesterday I was craving coffee ice cream. Haven't had that in so long! But that feeling passed when I realized the hard work I have been putting in was way more satisfying than coffee ice cream.
Keep looking forward! Focus! Realize I came a long, long way! And it isn't worth it to go back! Happiness is happening for me. Keep going forward no matter how big or small!
