Not being the first person to run to the kitchen when sweets are put out

 

I work in an office where people are always sharing food.  People bring in cakes.  They put out muffins, scones, and croissants, like there ain’t no tomorrow.  It’s hard n a girl who likes to eat.

I’m trying to avoid the kitchen area but it takes much strength.

And when I get an email saying “Goodies in the kitchen!” I’m trying not run the 100 yard dash getting over there.

Sweets, I will resist you!

 

Get back up on the horse

No matter what you are trying to do, life is a series of screw ups.  It’s full of triumphs too.  But when you mess up, get up, brush yourself off, learn from your mistakes and move on.

If you mess up, it’s not end of world. God doesn’t expect perfect. He expects you to keep trying.

 

i choose me

I choose me. I choose thinner. I choose my health. I choose to feel good. I choose to use restraint. I choose not to eat junk. I choose to be in control. I choose to be disciplined.  I choose to stick with this. I choose not to be a human Yo-Yo. I choose to keep my weight down. I choose me.

 

Me vs. Cake



Being thin is a choice. Maybe it isn't for everyone. Some people seem to be born 
thin. For me to get thin, it will be a choice. It means time after time making 
the choice to say no to cake. And cookies.  And brownies. And ice cream. And 
fudge. I think you get the picture.  :) 

Breaking food down into serving sizes

I have been watching my serving sizes lately.  My favorite afternoon snack is pretzels.  The bag I buy has 4 services.  That’s 5 pretzels per serving.  I was a good little girl and counted out 4 bags of 5 pretzels each and wrapped up each in tin foil.

I can do this.  You can too!  :)

 

Ravenous

 

I’m loving my new book: Ravenous: A food lover’s journey from obsession to freedom by Dayna Macy.  Here’s an excerpt:

“Salt, grease, tasteless pulp in my mouth,” he says, koan-like. “I can never eat

enough corn chips to be satisfied because there’s no there there. And if I

wasn’t paying attention, I’d keep eating them to try to get what isn’t there.

“Compare this to an orange,” he says, “which is sweet and tastes like sunshine.

When you taste something, don’t only let your mouth respond. Let your heart

respond. There’s a lot of food in this world that doesn’t have much to offer

your heart.”

Wishing you sunshine in your stomach, in your heart, and in your world!  :)
