And today...a nice walk!
Yes after sleeping in a bit, i got up and made a nice brekkie! Honestly a good brekkie sets me up for a great day :)
I just realized that my thinking is really changing. I was reading a blog post yesterday about some baked kettle chips that worked out to 2 pts a serving for approximately 20 chips. Wow i thought thats a pretty good serving size and 2 points i can fit that into my daily points. Well i would probably have to take something off of my daily plan but i could fit it in. And i left my thoughts at that.
Later on i was going to put those chips on my grocery list and i suddenly thought to myself "you know what that might be pretty good for 2 points but they're carbs which i know spikes my cravings like mad and if they did that what do you want to bet i'd end up eating the whole bag". If i were to bet that i would i think i'd win the bet. So the thought of putting on my grocery list was tossed out the window. Hey maybe i'm finally getting it :)
The other change i've found is that when i have my meal made and i'm starting to eat it i eat the veggies and the protein first. Now that is huge for me. Breakfast for instance i ate the eggs and laughing cow and the turkey bacon and didn't even think about touching the toast until later. And the toast being on sprouted bread really doesn't give me those carb cravings :)
Last night while eating my caesar salad and steak i just dove into that salad and loved every bite. I did eat the steak but just a bit at a time because i really wanted that salad. And i actually left my glass of wine until after dinner so i could sip it while watching a movie.
Enough rambling i'm off for my walk!
