Confessions of a carboholic....

Friday, December 02, 2011

I'm really not sure that's a word, but if it were, that would describe me. Carbs are good for your body, but not the kind I like to eat. =( I like tortilla chips, I like buttery popcorn, I like lots of other things too. So, it's important that I don't deprive myself of the things I like, but it's also important that I don't gorge myself on these bad carbs and stick to the healthy ones like fruits and whole grains.

So, I need to find my alternatives. Whole grain baked tortilla chips, fruits are going to cover my sweet cravings, and I can do celery with dips to get that crunch with the flavors....and I will need to make sure I ONLY have ONE of those treats my students bring for Holiday gifts.

That thinking thin needs to be my rule of thumb for the rest of my life and this week, I haven't been thinking that way! I have been hungry ALL the time and I have given into that hunger each time and just gorged and gorged...like a freaking pig. But I am stopping that today. Just because I am running, doesn't mean I can eat whatever...I am not running enough for that. I am only running enough to cover a 1500 calorie diet and still lose weight. I have to remember that differential that I need! I have lost site of that and now it's time to get that back!

So, here I am and I am going to work on that differential each day. There is no reason not to have it!

Hope everyone is having a great December already. Time to start thinking about New Year's Resolutions! I'm going to start those thoughts soon!

    i know exactly what you are saying....
    This foods are awesome and I gannet them as well....

    I have also found that the more I feed myself them the more I want them whereas if I stick with my plan I usually don't even desire them.....BUT..once I start on them my body craves them and I must have them.....
    I have to get to grips with all this as well.....
    Today is a good time to start
