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!

    I've been loving Earl Grey Green Tea from Bigelow. I just put a little dollop of raw honey in there, and YUM! Sleepytime is another favorite. I like MC's suggestion to eat before you go to pick up the meat and then have a snack in the car for when you leave. Sounds like you're doing a great job, keep it up!!

    Sounds like you are making great progress.
    Suggestion maybe eat a little before you go after the pork of have a snack in the car after you leave so you are not too hungry when you get home.

    If you have the phone app you can scan the barcodes on packaging to avoid typing it all in from the label. I love that feature! Best wishes and congrats on the pork.
