1/24/2008

Gee, I just realized that my titles are boring, everyone else seems to put some theme as their title, but not me! Oh well, my dates will have to suffice. Yesterday I totally did not follow my eating plan, but boy was the food tasty! I had some stupid meeting out of town and after lifting did not have time to eat my usual breakfast before I had to take off, so I stopped at 7-11 and got a coffee and a cheese danish. Yummy for my tummy but also not too good for the nutrient side of things. By the time I got back my office area, I was starving (it was after 2 pm and I don't know about anyone else, I need to eat something every couple of hours) and I still had to go get gas for the state car. So I found myself parking by some food shops on Broad Street near VCU, and somehow I also found myself standing in front of the order counter at 5 Guys...suffice to say, a cheeseburger and french fries is not part of my dieticians plan for me...I did, however, wash it all down with a Fresca (doesn't that make up for the empty but delicious calories?).

I apprehensively weighed myself this morning, but the expected gain from my cheating eating has not yet appeared. Maybe tomorrow. At any rate, it's back down to proper eating....

It's okay in my book to get off the total health nut bandwagon from time to time. French fries - yummy.

My nutritionist suggested having 1 "bad" food day a week, unless it was really bad, then you could do it once a month.

There has to be some psychosomatic (sp?) benefit to allowing yourself an indulgence now and again. Focusing on eating healthy 100% of the time takes energy and creates stress; relieving that every now and again by eating what's available or what you crave I think is healthier!

You don't eat like that all the time --so many people do. Cut yourself some slack!
And pack yourself a snack! By the way, I still need to get the name for your nutritionist! You look great. All the work is paying off.

you are correct
fresca eliminates calories
in foods consumed with it
