I’m so over dieting today. I’m frustrated because we went on a date night over the weekend and despite having one wayyyy off the diet meal, I kept it pretty good and yet, here I am today, and 9 lbs over what I started the weekend at.
9 lbs. What gives?! So here I am. Drinking coffee at my desk, eating my raw veggie diet again, and dreaming of the day that I don’t have to fret about every little thing.
But I continue to remind myself that it’s not a diet, it’s a life style, and I need to employ my “ten foods I love” rule at the beginning of this recommittal (not a word) to my lifestyle.
Ten Foods I love, so that I don’t overeat that is.
Cucumber with fat free dressings
Dried fruits (in moderation)
Tomatoes with pepper and salt
Kale soup with cauliflower, fat free half and half and italian chicken sausage
Eggs and spinach
Cocktail shrimp with cocktail sauce
Smoked salmon with greek yogurt, capers, red onion, dill served with one “fake bagel”
When all else fails though, and I have to have a full meal, I try to do some clean eating. No white processed foods, dial down the cheese and butter (attempt to eliminate completely!) and heavy up on the veggies, fruits, fibers and proteins. BevCooks helps me here, as I love anything with noodles….I know.
You know what, I know this is a tense subject for many, so to appease you all, let’s all it the Edible Snankuggletie. Because that rolls off the tongue sooo easily.
But really, when you’re down and troubled, and you need some loving care? This highly effective Edible Snankuggletie will be there.
Just call out its name.
