Recovery From Slip Ups
Friday, May 09, 2014
Recovery for me means picking myself up and starting again. A good example would be the Christmas season. I convinced myself that we needed (wanted really) Christmas cookies. I made dozens and did not refrain from eating them. In fact I tell people that I ate so many cookies I had frosting flowing through my veins, lol.
I packaged up several plates of cookies, attached Christmas cards to them and delivered them to friends and neighbors. It helped to get rid of the temptation. When I know a challenging situation is coming up, I try to move just a little extra to combat the calories.
Lately I have been craving sweets and greasy food. I love the chobani flip style Greek yogurt and they have taken care of my craving along with sugar free candy. As for greasy food, I made burgers with 93% lean beef and ate it on a roll open face. I also have individual pizzas in the freezer and add 1 oz of cheese to them. Having good substitutes and tracking the calories here on SP has really helped to prevent a slip.
