Ok, let me just say that today I have been in a horribly foul mood and just plain mad at the world right now. I’m tired of feeling like I’m always on the crap end of the stick! And let me just whine and say, “IT’S NOT FAIR!!!” Now that I have gotten my whining out of my system I shall move on.
It seems like every Friday I cave into my old fatty cravings for the weekend and any weight I had lost through the week I seem to gain back over the weekend! I’m tired of self-sabotaging the weekends away!
I love spending time with my mom whose one of my best friends. We usually have some kind of errands to run or a project going on and we usually eat out once or twice throughout the weekend. My usual favorites were Mexican where I would have chips, salsa, cheese dip or guacamole or both, enchiladas or quesadillas, and a margarita (ok, I’ll be honest more like 2-3 margaritas)..do you know that came up to over 1300 calories?!!! That’s crazy!
My problem is my mom is not a fan of trying new things. But, tonight I have decided she’s coming with me to Ghengis Grill which is a “build your own bowl” type of place. I’ve already gone on My Fitness Pal and added up the ingredients and it will be about 600-700 calories for a bowl with shrimp, scallops, mushrooms, squash, onion, sweet n sour sauce, on udon noodles. Oh yes, be jealous! You know that sounds amazing right now!!!Hopefully my mom will be open to this place and enjoy it..we shall see. I will probably take some pictures and post them later.
Let me be honest with myself when I get into a bad mood or when Friday rolls around, I use any excuse in the typical fat person’s book as to why I can “cheat” and have foods I know are over my calorie limit and not healthy at all. And, if I had a dime for every excuse I’m making for not exercising I would be a millionaire!
I’m not letting myself do this to me anymore! I can’t! If I want to see progress at all, I have to stop making excuses. Afterall, this isn’t a diet; this is my lifestyle now. I have to learn to always make healthier choices than the old habit me. Because, even though I’m not in the greatest mood today…the old way of eating me was seriously unhappy all the time. The old way of eating me was bordering on depressed. I don’t want to go back there. I feel so much better when I eat “clean”-no fried or processed foods. And, I don’t want to go back to that crappy feeling and have to start all over Monday morning.
There will be no regrets this next Monday morning! I am determined to eat healthy! As the hubby says, “I have my resolved face on-this is the resolved face”. 🙂 Prepare and plan ahead is what I shall be doing from now on. I still want to enjoy my mom and me time, but it will be eating healthier foods.
Wish me luck on trying to convince my mom to eat healthier with me and try new places… 🙂
Wishing everyone else a fabulous weekend!!! Make healthy choices! ~Charity
