I am trying a new technique when I'm eating things that are not as good for me. I try to give some to someone else or I break off some of the pastry/bad stuff. I feel better knowing I'm eating less than the packet says. I don't know if I'm deluding myself or this is a good way of feeling less guilty about having a few nice things at the weekend.
It wasn't a weekend of indulgence though. When I went to the pub for a meal on Saturday I ordered the tuna mayonnaise jacket potato and it felt good making the healthier choice. Then when I went to the cinema I brought an orange juice and a pack of snack a jacks with me, which I know is much healthier than chocolate or butter popcorn etc.
I think it really is about making better choices to keep your weight down. The goal is to never put any on. So even if you have a bad week where you don't lose anything, not putting any on is an achievement as well.
I wow to keep making small improvements to help myself now and in the future.
On Friday I was at the pub with a work colleague and I fancied a bite. On the menu it had sweet potato fries and I thought that sounded better than having chips. They were soooo delicious but unfortunately they made my stomach turn. I think my stomach has gotten used to all the healthy food.
|So yummmmmmy. Sweet Potato Fries.|
I also went for a nice walk with a friend this weekend and then had hot chocolate after. I didn't feel too guilty because I knew I had done some walking before. But as you know the guilt is always there.
|Luckily they had no squirty cream in!|
It is so hard to keep making the right choices and saying no to things such as nice hot chocolate with friends.
BUT I tell you my friends, I am sick of starting again. SO I won't be failing this time. TO THE GYM!! :D
Good luck to you all.
