A saying that's helping me get past the occasional binge

Wednesday, February 26, 2014

If I have healthy foods in the home, that's what I eat. What are my dangerous moments? The grocery store and driving past favorite fast food places. This saying has been helping me a lot lately : "I love myself, and I want to take care of myself MORE than I want _____"

Skipped right by the candy aisle yesterday, even though there was a huge display of my favorite chocolates ON SALE.

I'm smiling today as I sip my healthy juiced drink (kale, carrots, apple, celery, ginger, lime). And I don't have that yucky post-chocolate binge feeling. Whee!

    Well Beth, you and I have the opposite problems so together we make 1 whole and awesome person! emoticon

    I have figured out the go to snacks because I am diabetic. I carry a small soft sided cooler with me with a small 1/2 cup container of fresh ground peanut butter, and 1 or 2 of the fruit cups of pears or apples in 100% juice, a diabetic carb balancing shake for emergency moments, a bottle of water, plastic spoons, and whatever I might find important that doesn't need to be refrigerated. It's small and easy to carry every where. I keep it stocked and in my vehicle or with me when I go places with others and it's light weight so I have no issues dragging it every where.. If you carry a large purse then you can just place it at the bottom of your purse and its ready to go.

    It's the MEALS that trip me up so much..... I forget to plan for the meals and then here comes the hunger and my mind shuts down on me. That's when the fast food places start calling to me from the truck windows emoticon emoticon

    Great advice!

    I feel a great sense of accomplishment if I go into a store and only buy what is on my list, so it's less temptation to buy junk food; if it's not on my list, I don't buy it. A few times I have actually put something like in my cart, and after thinking about for a few minutes, I'll go and take it out of the cart and put it back.
