Yesterday at work, I walked around the store trying to figure out what I wanted to buy. Usually after work I want something to eat while I relax at the end of a day. Ooh I see boxes of crackers, I see peanut butter filled M&Ms, I see cups of ramen noodles, and I see frozen burritos. What I didn’t see was Jillian Michaels (from Biggest Loser) yelling in my face or anyone else telling me that I shouldn’t eat that stuff.
But as I am walking around the store having a mental debate with myself: #1. Oh one little treat won’t matter VS #2. Are those treats gonna get you any closer to what you want? I started to become my own “Jillian” and yell at myself…don’t worry I didn’t yell out loud. But yes, I stopped myself.
I decided that if I REALLY wanted to lose weight, then I had to act like it. Just wishing it or typing it into a blog won’t magically make it happen. Even though you can’t see what I eat..I can. The waistband on my pants will see it and my stomach will feel it later. Now I am tired of whatever stomach and bathroom issues I have after eating certain foods. And I am loving the fact that my size 18W pants are getting loose…I don’t even care that I just ordered them online in June, I will happily spend more money on a smaller size soon.
Anyways, I ended up buying a bag of frozen blueberries (to have some for breakfast this morning), and a bag of pork rinds. Now if you are watching calories or on a low fat diet then you might assume that I bought something terrible. BUT…pork rinds have ZERO carbs!! Yes they have more sodium than I would like. I usually want something crunchy that I can mindlessly eat while I am on my tablet before I go to sleep, and pork rinds was my best choice at my store. Seeing as I had a backache I didn’t even eat very many before I went to sleep.
Luckily my backache was gone when I woke up this morning. According to my Fitbit I slept for about 7 hours, which is real good for me. Well even though the calendar says it’s Monday, it is really my Tuesday with the work schedule. So I need to finish getting ready for work now.
