Choices. We are faced with so many every day that we probably don't think twice about most of them. In evaluating my eatng habits, I soon realized what poor choices I have been making for myself. Did I really need to eat three Reese Trees in one sitting AND have ice cream before bed? Probably not.
I am using this blog partly to make me accountable for what I put in my mouth. I have done really good this week at hitting my daily points range for what I have eaten. On top of the daily points, I also get 40-some weekly points to distribute how I like, or to use all at once, or not at all. I wanted to go out for lunch, but without ruining my whole plan. I searched through the WW site....
What was a pleasant surprise?? Pizza Hut! One of my favorites!
I could easily swing two bread sticks and half of a personal pan meat lovers pizza and still have plenty of points for the rest of the day. Oh...but could I really only eat HALF of a personal pan pizza?
YES! I can and I did! AND I was full! I am starting to realize that I was doing a whole lot of "mindless" eating. Not really paying attention to what I was eating, how much, and eating well after my body was telling me that it had had enough.
I know that there will be highs and lows to this journey, but lunch today was most certainly a high! Not only can I eat what I normally eat, I can be smart about it! How empowering :)
