Focus on sugar and snacks this week
Thursday, April 16, 2015
Only two pounds to go until my goal. At least until I have to determine if that is it, or if another five pounds is reasonable. In any case, I can't slide backwards. this past week, some old habits are wanting to come back. Namely nighttime snacking and sweets. I joined the Sweet Tooth challenge a few weeks ago but didn't stick with it very well. I am trying again. I will try to get in the habit of blogging about my success or lack thereof. Maybe it will keep me honest about it.
So let's start with this week. Monday I ate like a monk. Until evening when I had ice cream. OK, diet ice cream. I added almonds which I convicted myself made it alright. I actually did have calories to spare that day, and a treat now and then is OK, but lets not make it a habit. The almonds did make it more satisfying and I didn't over indulge.
The next day, Tuesday, I finished the remaining ice cream. No portion issue since there wasn't much left in the box. I ate the rest of the blackberries I had on hand with it. Again, not really too bad, but then I kept prowling back in the kitchen to see what else there was available that was sweet. I had a calorie controlled packaged snack. I don't really like the idea too much, but the portion controlled packaging did keep me in check so I didn't eat the whole box. But, then I had a glass of wine.
Wednesday, no more ice cream or berries. Another pre-packaged snack with a glass of wine. Also an invented trip to the receptionist at work just so I could snag a chocolate from her candy supply.
I will try to stay on task wit this tonight. I ate rather lightly today in terms of calories, so I plan to eat a full balanced dinner. Hopefully more food at dinner will keep the evening munchies away.
