I am proud to say that I have not had a doughnut to eat ALL summer. Yes I get that summer is a few days old. However it almost happened today. On my way home from a run I drove by the bakery or as I like to call it now "where the devil lives" Good thing I was sweaty and gross and the store was full of people. I kept driving and rejoiced at the fact I didn't give in. Yea I win! Until mid afternoon when I wanted Ice cream. It was so warm out and it sounded so good. A summer day and Ice Cream they are SUPPOSED to go together. I chose a hand full of cashews in place of ice cream. Yea I win again! 2-0 ME! Later that day the air conditioning broke and the kids were being naughty and I was a sweaty mess. My my shirt off and my belly sticking out as I sat on the couch and looked on the computer for Sonic half priced Ice Cream drinks. I got up and made myself a protein shake and had a clif bar. 3-0 OHH YEA!
I struggle to eat a lot of food, and food that is good for you. Where I work we have meals provided to us, but they are really bad and not good for you at all. So most days I end up eating a salad and skip dressing because I don't want 17-20g of fat and HFCS. We cannot bring our own food due to other issues, so that is out of the question too. I am debating eating an early dinner and a late dinner to solve this trouble. This is the last week I will be counting calories. I have learned that I need to cut fat out of my diet and lower my sodium levels too. Ha, makes those cashews sound like an iffy option.
I feel like I won today, but then again I didn't. If I am going to eat healthy this is going to be a lifestyle change. So with this minor victory I move on to tomorrow where a whole new world of big mac's and sweet foods await me. Ooo big mac's, is McDonald's still open?
