I’m sorry to admit my eating has not been very clean lately. I seem to start my week off strong but dwindle by weekend. That is when I start to make really un-healthy food choices. I keep giving myself a mini-pep talk about how staying on track is a much better idea. However, I’m not having much success.
Thankfully the scale is at least holding steady but I’ve been back in the 200s for several weeks now. I need to actually follow through with the goals I set and be tougher on myself.
Last night we almost ate out but ended up eating at home. I had eaten out after an appointment yesterday and Kenyon and I ate out on Monday night. We were thinking we might hit up Sizzler since they just started their steak and salad bar promotion for $9.99. That is a fantastic deal. When you add in soda for one or both of us the cost of the meal starts to increase. I noticed I had some ground turkey that didn’t get made into the planned meatloaf and was past its date by two days. I fixed up some mini meatloafs and thought I could freeze them if we end up out to dinner. Kenyon thought since it was all ready to go in the oven (and I had pre-heated the oven) we might as well eat at home.
It was a good decision. We split the last half a giant ginger cookie I got at Flying M earlier in the day. I, of course, had already eating half of the large cookie on my own so splitting the other half was still a lot of cookie. Boy was it delicious though. Mmmmmmmmm……it was labeled as a vegan cookie so I’m not sure if that is why it was so soft on the inside. The outer edges were a bit harder and it was sprinkled with large sugar bits.
Okay, now I’ve made myself crave sugar already this morning and it is only 9:30am.
Thinking like this is what is getting me in trouble….
