10/15/13 Katie's Healthy Eating Journal: Thursday

by Katie (Jenny Craig 2009 Poster Girl) 15. October 2012 18:56

This morning I was chatting with my friend who is trying to follow the diet the frustrations of body image, weight, and yo-yo diets.  She was so excited (like I was last week) to have lost six pounds over the course of three weeks.  She was at a soccer game last night and didn't have time to go home and eat dinner.  By the time she would've gotten home, it would've practically been time for bed.  She has worked really hard exercising and trying to eat healthy.  We were both complaining because the slightest mistake affects us and causes a weight gain.  She opted for a turkey sandwich with lettuce, tomato, and mustard.  She even took off some of the turkey because she knew it was too much!  She also did confess to having a cup of hot chocolate.  She ended up gaining a pound a half and was pretty irritated.  I completely understand where she's coming from...I can think of all the TERRIBLE food choices I/she could make and so I think to myself, "Really?  A turkey sandwich and cup of hot chocolate settles that quickly?!"  Now I know the "educated" part of my brain says processed meat is terrible for you.  The sodium is typically astronomical and the cup of hot chocolate probably had so much sugar in it it could get you high!  Wink  But, still, the other part of my brain says, "Come on.  This is ridiculous."  Ah well, apparently we lead the lives of all those who have crappy metabolisms!  Hopefully she and I can get back on track.  But, there's always something and the out-of-town bachelorette party this Saturday only leaves me guessing that everything I worked so hard for all week is about to go down the drain...
