On weekends I can be swayed off track between errands and the lazier schedule. I will concede if outvoted by the family on places to eat, and if I'm tired or overly hungry I'll just pick something heavier instead of making cleaner choices.
Am I alone in this? I can't be. Can I?
I know how I can get if I go too long between meals, and I plan to stash something in my purse to help me get through, but if I'm rushing about I forget. And I tell myself I can wait 5-6 hours, but by that time I am heading for a crash and either get grouchy or shaky. Either way, it leads to heavier choices, like deep fried instead of grilled or starch fests instead of a balanced plate. I hate what I'm eating while eating, but while ordering I ignore the call for better food. Oy.
But on the plus side, even though I've ignored the scale for a few weeks, nothing has changed for the better or worse. That in itself is a victory to me. It means I am making good enough choices when I'm not really on track. But it's time to make better choices, period. More greens, less starch, and more movement!
Until next time.
