Day 11: A Little Cheat Does a Body Good?

28 Feb

As I’ve mentioned in my recent blog posts – the last couple of days have been a bit hard.  I’m an emotional eater, so when I’m dealing with things – I want to eat.  And not only do I want to eat – but I tend to lean towards foods that are not good for you.  Particularly fast food.

Knowing myself, I knew that the way to push through this was to satisfy the craving.  But the important part was that I had to stay in my points.  So after much research, I realized that the thing with the least amount of points was crunchy tacos from Taco Bell.  And they hit the spot.  The craving was gone.

I’m trying really hard to not eat fast food and to be responsible with my choices.  But I know eating carrots and apples wouldn’t have cut it.

I’m just happy I didn’t go over my points.  And I still haven’t touched my extra points for the week or my activity points.  So I’m hopeful a tiny cheat isn’t a terrible thing.

Here’s the food breakdown:

Breakfast: None

Lunch: Two Smart Ones (Weight Watchers) mini cheeseburgers (10 points)

Dinner: Crunchy Tacos from Taco Bell (21 points)

Snacks: Apple with reduced fat peanut butter (5 points), Popcorn (1 point)

    I have the same problem and you did the right thing by satisfying the craving the smart way. Making those changes and allowing yourself some wiggle room is what brings long lasting results. Keep it up…:)

      Thank you so much for your feedback! I agree – if I hadn’t satisfied the craving in some way, it was only going to get worse. I really want to stay on the plan and on track – and think this helped.
