Grocery Shopping: What was I thinking?

Friday, March 18, 2016

On yesterday I went to the big Wal Mart store for some things I needed. While there, I grocery shopped. Some of the non grocery items I wanted, they were out of. But I promise you I did get a lot of grocery items.

My list of good for me things included: Broccoli, Cauliflower, Carrots, Pineapple, Mandarin Oranges, Apple, Peanuts and Bananas.

At least I had a very good start on some healthy foods.

My problem was that I started to get very hungry while I was shopping. I was almost ready to check out when I spotted the counter where they serve fresh cooked food. So I decided to get me some potato logs. A few of those won't be so bad. Whoops..... to late, I spotted the fried popcorn shrimp. A paper cup (about 10oz.) full of the shrimp is $2.50 and the potato logs were $1.01. The price was right and I WAS hungry.

I ate a little bit on the way home (when I was at the red lights). I ate more when I got home. I only ate about 1/3 of the shrimp and part of the logs. It tasted O.K., but was not worth the suffering later.

I do not eat greasy food for a reason. GREASE DOES NOT like me. I was eating tums most of the night.

EVERY TIME I do something stupid like this, I promise myself that I won't do it again. Well, that promise never works out. What is that old saying? "The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.

Today, I do have some good plans for some of the food I purchased yesterday. Broccoli, Cauliflower and Carrots are at the top of my list for lunch plans.

I think I will just have to stick with going to the Wal Mart Neighborhood Market. They do not have all of the tempting fried foods that draw me into their snare.

Blessings to all of my Spark Family.

    The positive is that you bought healthy fruits and veggies. Focus on the good choices you made and let the others go. Tomorrow is another day. emoticon

    Can't touch greasy after 2PM or I pay the rest of the evening.

    Brenda, I'm the same way. If I eat the wrong things, I suffer. I have learned... Don't Go Out Hungry. I have many favorite 'cheat' foods. I have found, when I prepare these at home, I make them slightly healthier.... definitely less greasy.
    I bought a 'Hot air Fryer' last year. It allows me to make the occasional tater tot or chicken wing. (without added fat) Great for the crunch crave.

    Feel better. Get some rest.

    There are good reasons the experts tell us not to shop on an empty stomach. We will grab unhealthy food (as you did) and purchase additional unhealthy items from the shelves. Do you keep cheese sticks in the house? Make it a point to eat one of those before you shop. They are 90-100 calories and low carb so they won't stimulate your appetite. Good luck from here on out!

    Maybe you should've grabbed an apple. At least it wouldn't have upset your tummy.
