I'm workin it! Just had to write this one down... I'm so proud of me! My dinner consisted of pork roast (no gravy), mashed potatoes... love them and haven't had them in about a year.. and spinach. Was getting to that "full" point even though my meal was portioned out and I could just devour it all and still be within my range.. I had to make a choice.... the pork was eaten.... my protein.. but the veggies an taters remained. Ummm... what to eat.. I knew I wouldn't finish it all because I was almost at the "need no more food to be full" point. And I chose to finish the spinach and leave the mashed potatoes...... not that taters are bad, and they do provide many nutrients my body needs....... but given the choice... I opted for the spinach.. and now I'm pleasantly full... not over the top.. would have been if I ate the taters too but (they did taste really good)....and I opted to get my veggies in first.
Made me realize it's about choices... what was the better choice for ME? Spinach... I needed my greens after my protein was consumed. The taters are still there for tomorrow if I feel the need. But for tonight I'm comfortably full and I feel satisfied.
Now it's time to relax.... part of my healthy lifestyle choice. Get my rest.
I can't believe I'm so excited about something that seems so trivial. But it's important to me.
Oh... and my cigarette intake... still very low for the day. I'm moving forward. I see "skinny" jeans in my future!
