I'm trying to think about ways to get myself out of this vicious cycle of stressing about what I'm eating and then feeling guilty about what I ate. I love Velvet's idea of taking a break for a week, but I'm gonna try to take just a 1/2 step down and maybe take a break from the counting of points for a little while. What am I saying, I've been taking a break from that for a while! But actually thinking about what I'm eating, focusing on healthy stuff and portion sizes, without stressing over the point value each time.
And maybe for a while I'll just record what I eat here, for all of you, so there's still some level of accountability? There's less silent shame (seriously) if I'm sharing my good choices and my mistakes. I hope it's not too boring for you. But I think I'll try it for a little while and weigh in on Monday and see how it goes.
So, what I've eaten so far today:
An omelet of egg beaters, 1 slice of canadian bacon and some shredded cheese
South Beach peanut butter bar
cup of tomato vegetable soup
1/2 ham and cheese sandwich
handful of tortilla chips
oatmeal raisin cookie
100 calorie pack of those peanut cookies
(Wohoo - successfully avoided cake at the staff meeting!)
Splurge Snack at Home:
the rest of last night's Tostitos and black bean dip
What I'm planning for actual dinner:
Lite Caesar salad kit
Maybe a sugar free pudding cup
Not too bad, actually, in terms of healthy items and decent portion sizes. Other than that chips and dip snack, of course, but I did eat that knowing it was a splurge. We'll see how tomorrow goes.
