Sometimes new food is more motivating.

I went to Trader Joes and Whole Foods yesterday, just because it was my day off and I'd been wanting to go for a while and pick up all the special healthy foods I read about.
Coconut Cream Pie Larabar
Fiberful fruit thingys
Cinnamon Raisin Ezekiel 4:9 bread
Better 'n Peanut Butter
3 buck chuck white zin....For the hubs. I don't even wastes calories on alcohol anymore. I'd rather EAT!
3 More Lara bars- PB&J, Apple Pie and one other that I can't remember now
Arctic Zero in Strawberry (OMG!) and Cookies and Cream (It's ok.)
Tofu Shirataki Noodles
PB & Co White Chocolate Wonderful (that's right. 2 types of PB!)
Little did I know when I planned this trip, but I think this is the key to cleaning up my diet.
Since these are special, expensive foods, I need to be careful about eating them slowly. I was measuring the Muesli painfully carefully this morning.
I think just subbing Arctic zero for ice cream I could lose a lot of weight.
Yeah. A (big old) bowl of ice cream got to be an almost nightly occurrence there for a while (the last 3 weeks or so). When I was at my highest weight, I used to NEED (brain. addiction.) something dessert like after dinner. Back then, my husband and I jokingly called it "closure". I recognized that nagging need again the other night and it scared me. Going back there is not an option.
Today is a fresh start, exercise AND nutrition-wise. My mother-in-law will be here in a month. Warrior Dash is 2 months from yesterday. I'm ready to kill it.
Pretty fancy foods will change the way I eat. Maybe it was crap like bologna that was setting me back. I'm at least size 8 under all this, and size 8 Sarah thrives on fancy healthy stuff.
Breakfast: 1/2 cup of pineapple, 1/2 cup of cottage cheese, 1 slice of ezekiel bread toasted with spray butter
Snack: 1 container of light cherry yogurt, 1/2 cup of blueberry muesli
No lunch until much later. I have a doctors appointment and I freak about the scale.
Work till 1 pm.
