A thought

While watching the Biggest Loser the other night, I found it interesting that when the Blue team lost the challenge and they were getting ready to eat, Bob had them work out instead. His reasoning was that whenever you're down you turn to food so he was trying to change the focus.

That was a great idea! I mean whenever I feel upset the first thing I do is head for something that makes me feel better and usually it involves, chocolate. And, if you think about it exercise makes you feel good. If I could train myself to think like that, wouldn't that make more sense then food?

So that even if it's a 5 minute quick walk, stretch anything. Just change the way your thinking works so that when you are stressed you are longing to get out there and burn a little energy off.

I had a bad day yesterday foodwise. With the company coming and the birthday party I didn't eat right. I didn't eat lunch and supper. I had birthday cake, timbits, cookies and hotdogs. Miraculously when I got up this morning, I decided to check the damage, and i wasn't up. But I am back at it and being really good again.

Food for Sunday:
  • Egg omelet: two eggs, zucchini, mushroom, tomatoe, onion, ff cheese
  • coffee
  • crystal light
  • 1 slice of pear
  • Salad: mushrooms, lettuce, tomato, salmon, ff cottage cheese, ff dressing

Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
