Tonight's dinner....turkey burgers and zucchini fritters. :-)



I made a half of batch of double chocolate chip cookies to bring in for our farewell party for my co-worker. I ate one this morning as they came out of the oven. I'm not tempted with them here at work. I kept out 2 for todd and I to have as dessert. They are ordering pizza for this farewell party. I plan on having ONE piece. I can do this. I know that it may push me higher on my calorie count. But I've got to learn how to manage these things without pigging out. I can have 1 piece of pizza. Once piece will not hurt me. One cookie will not hurt me either. I've got to get into the mentality that moderation of the good stuff is a good thing. I don't have to eat rabbit food (veggies and fruit) constantly. Yeah, I need to eat a lot of it...simply because it's healthy and it's a way that i can still eat 'lots' of food without ruining my calorie count for the day. But i'm really going to start focusing on quantity. Thus far, I've done the 'eat the smartest foods' so that I can eat a lot. I am going to start focusing more on portion control. I know that when I do eat less....I'm still satisfied. So I just need to do it. And I think it's going to be a thing of just forcing myself to eat less...I think I will always have that 'big eyes' thing that makes me want lots and lots of food.



Well, if that was not a ramble, I don't know what is!

Yes sometimes we get so caught up in healthy things that we don't let ourselves indulge occasionally. For me today i've eaten 3 mini chocolate chip cookies that work into my plan but are a really nice change for me ;)

Ah yes, portion control. I think that is one of the hardest things to learn when trying to manage one's weight. A little overendulgence once in a while is ok, but I tend to take it just a small step too far.
