A Frosty Treat

Wednesday, June 19, 2013

I was doing well....until today when we stopped at an old fashioned candy store...Ibought a few candies that were reminiscent of my childhood, never thinking, "AH...this is CANDY!!! NOT GOOD!!!" So when I got home I ate some licorice and think that will be the worst of the damage BUT then we went to Wendy's for lunch and Ihad another Chicken Berry Almond salad minus the chicken. And a diet soda. So far so good....but wait, What is this coming out of my mouth??
"And I'll have a small Frosty."


well, to defend myself , it was a small.....but it was definitely not on the approved food list. My passion is fading. And I'm not losing weight because of choices like these. So should I look for things to congratulate myself on?

1) The Frosty was small.
2) I did NOT go down the ice cream aisle at the grocery store....in fact I bought nothing bad there.
3) Tonight's dinner is all veggies Raw and cooked.

OK I feel a little better....but still not happy with myself...

The truth is that even WITH the Frosty and the Licorice, my total calories for the day still have to be under1500 and maybe even 1200. So I need to just cut myself a break. Even Dr Fuhrman has treats once in a while. He said so himself.

Ok I feel all better....
Thanks for hearing me out.

    Treats are allowed once in a while. I would have had the largest Frosty size -love those things, good thing I never get to eat out there, they remind me of the malts Mom and I used to get after work on our way home (we walked six miles round trip to work after being on our feet with a heavy lifting job all day) -so no weight gain for that indulgence.
    Your meal choices are great!

    First of all how many times do you find an old fashion candy store? not very often so good for you for picking up a few little treats that reminded you of your childhood those kind of stores are special and it's not like your going to be going back everyday so don't beat yourself up on that.
    It was good to get the salad, but be careful at Wendy's the salad might be more healthier but it's the dressing that will clobber you with calories.
    As far as looking at things on the bright side your right! You didn't get a large frosty, or a medium frosty you got the small. You know before this journey you'd of probably gotten a different size not a small so pat yourself on the back.
    You are thinking of what your putting in your mouth and that's a great start, these things become good habits.
    Okay today is a cheat day in a way for you and you know what that's okay as long as it doesn't become a everyday thing. We're human we have days like this, you are making healthier choices and for that applaud yourself!
    Tomorrow will be a better day , because you'll choose for it to be just make sure you track everything and hold yourself accountable, before you know it you'll know how many calories are in things because of the everyday tracking and will make better decisions.
    I hope you enjoyed a little taste of your childhood today, that's always a nice little feeling when you see something that you use to enjoy as a child, makes you feel young again.
    Good luck on your journey!
