10/26/13 Katie's Healthy Eating Journal: Monday

Remember the friend at school I have mentioned on previous posts?  She's trying to workout and eat healthier to lose about ten pounds.  I hope she doesn't mind but I'm going to use her as an example in my blog tonight.  

We happened to pass each other in the bathroom earlier this afternoon and she asked me, "What do I do?!  Another teacher wanted to thank me for helping her and she bought me a brownie from Miami Market!!!"  Now, Miami Market is no store bought, made from a box dessert.  It is a cute little "mom and pop" store that makes EVERYTHING from scratch.  Just about everything there is delicious.  She didn't want to throw away a perfectly good brownie, and quite frankly, I agreed with her.  Those brownie's really are too good to waste.  I told her what I would do anytime even a student has given me a treat; I used it as a reward in my class...haha or bring it home to my husband!  Even though the smell alone is enough to make me reach out and grab it while it sits out on my desk - I know those few minutes of heaven don't add up to the few inches or slightest amount of pounds I may gain.  It's just not worth it to me.  Gaining a pound or two is much easier than losing a pound or two.  If I truly want to have some I cut it and only eat half, don't have my usual snack after dinner, plus workout harder that evening.  Don't completely deny yourself of everything you love or no diet will be lifelong.  If you really love wine, exchange your fat and snack that day and indulge yourself in a glass of wine.  All you can do is try your best.  If you truly are, results will pay off.  A few splurges isn't going to completely take you off the map as far as weight loss is concerned.  Look at a food situation as a challenge.  For example, my challenge is a Halloween party where ALL my friends will be this Saturday.  I told my consultant I would not drink the next four weeks and I'm going to try very hard to be committed to that.  What goal do you want to set for yourself this week?  Take each challenge one by one and day by day.  If you try to tackle too much at once you are setting yourself up for failure.  Good luck, if you want it, you really CAN do it!
