Fast food isn't my downfall.
Portion sizes don't really effect me, I am not a big eater.
Its TAKING the time to eat. I skip meals, forget to eat, then eat things I normally don't eat, like Kettle potato chips, Pepperoncino to be specific.
I know I need to EAT. And eat intentionally. I buy my boys such healthy food but I just don't take time to eat it myself.
I went to the grocery store today. 230$ later. I always try to buy some new items.
This week I purchased:
- Ugly fruit
- Grapples..They really do taste like a grape!
Tommorrow breakfast/lunch for work: KIND bar, I like coconut flavor, Noosa Yogurt, w/granola and Chia. 2 slices Boars Head Chicken breast, RAW Oatmeal. Carrots, Strawberries and a Pear.
ONE Step Forward 2 steps back..
That sounds great for tomorrow, HOWEVER..Today..CHEESECAKE!
Danielle and I actually planned a running date at Kensington and lunch at Cheesecake Factory over 3 weeks ago.
We had the perfect run. The temps were kind to us at 70', we were even spoiled with a cool breeze coming off the lake. It was divine. The sky was a magnificent blue with fluffy white clouds resting above us.
We were hardly alone, the park was filled with runners, bikers and walkers. I love seeing so many people active and engaged.
I need to play with my Garmin. The auto pause isn't set. Our running pace was actually 8:45/mi.
After our run, we cleaned up in the public bathrooms. After changing, we headed to Cheesecake Factory.
I ate a very intentiaonally healthy salad...Then cheesecake. We had such a nice lunch. For the record, I only ate about 4 bites, 3 of mine and 1 of Danielle's!
I brought the rest home along with a Raspberry Lemon cheesecake slice for my boys.
"Don't ruin a good today by thinking about a bad yesterday."
Each day is a new day. With Hope, promises and opportunities to try again. I was reminded of this today. I don't need to chase negativity with more negativity.
