Fought Temptation and Made a Healthy Choice!
Wednesday, January 20, 2010
So we have this chocolate cake with chocolate frosting in the kitchen that was baked for my friend's late B-day cake. It's half gone and I haven't touched it at all. But tonight, after looking at my calories...I thought, hmm well, I could have a piece of cake, a small one
I even went as far as looking up how many calories are in a Pillsbury Chocolate cake and frosting (btw it's 390) So...I debated then I had things to do. So I got up did stuff and went in the kitchen, even grabbed a really small bowl and said to myself, "If I have cake...it's have to fit in here"... and then decided to do pilates and crunches and my weights. Then moved on to my Wii Fit and by the time I was done working out I kinda forgot about the cake. So I went to get a snack and there was the cake, lid off, staring at me across the kitchen, but by then, I had already decided to eat an apple and went to grab a few pecans out of the cupboard, grabbed the cake lid and said "Nope" and put it over the cake. I very much enjoyed my apple and pecans and water!
I didn't really miss the cake...it was more of a debate than anything. I'm always thinking if there's something like that in the house, that I should at least have a little bit because I feel like I'm missing out on something. I know that comes from my family. In our house if you didn't eat something, someone else would. I now realize how aweful that sounds. Anyway so I feel good that I made a healthy choice! Yay!! Apples Rock!! Ryuk agrees up there! XD I love him! He's hot...I know, I'm weird.
So instead of this
I hit this
So I have a mini celebration for being a good girl
So yeah, I'm not always gonna deprive myself, but I don't feel deprived right now. If I really need something, I'll have it, but in moderation. That's a big thing I've learned. It's key for me. One more thing I was gonna say, and then I should go nighty. I decided to count my calories for one week, becaue I don't usually do that, and to see how I'm doing. See if I can get some answers about my eating confusion. Anyway...tis late and I shall be off.
