I’d like to make one note: I received a question yesterday about whether I count calories or not. Yes I still count calories but I focus more on how much protein, carbs, and fats I am getting. I make sure I am hitting all the requirements needed for my body. I feel that I’m not ready to let go of this just yet but I hope one day I can be free of thinking about calories!
Another Monday morning + a fairly uneventful Sunday = a relatively boring post.
This morning I found Jet-Puffed in the cabinet. I knew we had it somewhere and I’ve been thinking about putting it on my banana and PB for about a week now but I kept forgetting to do it! For whatever reason this morning I remembered. Glad I found it. This ooey-gooey marshmellowy loveliness just poured out of the container waiting to be
scarfed down eaten. Of course I stuck my knife in and started eating it out of the tub (yes I lick knives). Then I remembered I should probably put some other nutrients into my body pre-workout.
This morning I was a little weary on going to the gym with Kyle. My hips were fine this morning but had been sore the past 2 days and I didn’t want to push it. I figured I would go and just try some different machines. I ended up getting onto the elliptical and it didn’t hurt at all! Nothing! It actually felt good. I went at a slow steady pace so I could read my new magazine (It’s that time of the month for magazines!!!) and did about 40 minutes.
Okay so I’m going to be open and honest. Last night at dinner I had a major breakdown about that stupid tortilla in the picture above. The breakdowns have been happening about the same time everyday for the past week. All of the sudden I become overwhelmed with what I’m making, get frustrated, and breakdown. K then swoops in and saves the day by reassuring me it’s just food. He’s right it is just food and if I don’t want to eat it I don’t have to eat it. Every time I’ve gone through one of these breakdowns I end up throwing away the food but then make it again with a smaller portion size and eating it. I think some days I become over-confident and then want to resort back to my old ways. It’s like taking one step forward, two steps back, and a smaller baby step forward. It’s a part of the learning process and it won’t happen over night. I did end up eating that along with my dinner last night and it was worth it !
Question: What are your plans for the day? Woo I’m going to see the nutritionist again! I’ll give an update tomorrow/tonight about it.
Do you watch the next food network star? Yes! I missed last nights episode cause I went to bed early but I’m going to catch up on it today!
Any food fears? Have you overcome them? If so how did you overcome them.
