You can see I’m futzing around with the thread title. “Dieting” has that dreaded connotation, but hey, it sounds cute when paired with Dopers.
So I made it through the weekend, and did pretty well with my eating (well, except maybe for a few excess tortilla chips in Old Town with Encinitas and Eonwe, but oh well).
I went to the grocery store yesterday to stock up for the week. I went to a different store than I normally shop at, and they had a BONANZA of cool produce. I bought some yellow and orange tomatoes, which was a first. I also bought some artichokes for tomorrow’s dinner. Yum.
I definitely have the exercise part down pat. I’m just struggling to continue to make healthy and smart choices. I fight the battle of thinking before I eat. I’ll pop something in my mouth and then realize that I probably could have done without it. So I’m attempting to be more mindful of my eating. And also mindful of the consequences of eating something. If I want to drop some pounds, I need to accept that I control what I put into my mouth. And I control whether I eventually get to my goal or not.
Ah, this weight business. It’s a continual struggle.
This week should be pretty uneventful, at least in terms of dining out. I don’t have any big meals coming up that I need to prepare for, which is nice.
So what about you? Pop in and tell us about your weekend, or the challenges in the week ahead. Or whatever you feel like venting about.
