Sunday Weigh-In

What happens when you gain weight instead of losing? The instant reaction is to not record your weight. This is not going to be my case. Although late, here is my weight for last week.

The Monster in my Fridge

My day started with a good breakfast, cereal with milk. Then at mid-morning I had a snack. Going good right?

At lunch it was even better, I had a great meal, rice with vegetables and chicken and water.(Insert music… tan, tan, tan…) Later I came home and I can’t say I was hungry, because I wasn’t, but something came over me and drag me to the kitchen, made me open the fridge, and eat.

Argh!!! I couldn’t stop. It was horrible. I ate everything that was inside my fridge; pasta, beef with vegetables, salami, cheese, 3 sugar cookies, 2 liters of diet coke, because I couldn’t break my diet LOL … OMG.

By the end I was so full I couldn’t even breathe and I had to drink and Alka-Seltzer. **Sigh**

The worst part… I went to my scale and weight myself. Really? What was I thinking?

Of course the scale was going to SCREAM “you overeat”. I was so frustrated ant then I started to feel guilty and unhappy. Because after a long time fighting to lose weight, the “Monster” came by and made me eat… and give up, and it is not fair.

What can I do when I feel like there is no tomorrow and start eating without control? I don’t know. I guess I have to keep fighting this “Monster” that takes over me and drags me to the fridge.

Is there a magic potion? If you have it let me know… and pass it on, remember sharing is caring!!


Lunch at the Office

Homemade vs Fast Food?

Picture this, you cooked the night before and feel super good about your menu. You take the food to your office to eat it during lunch.

One hour before lunch time arrives, a coworker asks you, “did you bring lunch?” you very proud say, “yes, I cooked last night”. Then you coworker tells you, “I didn’t bring anything. I’m going out to eat, do you want to come?”

All of the sudden, the food that you cooked the night before, the food that you are so proud of, doesn’t look that appetizing anymore and you end up eating out, wasting the food you cooked the night before, adding unnecessary calories and wasting money.

This story repeats itself almost every day but you don’t notice. Then when weigh-in day comes, you don’t see any changes and you start asking yourself, what happened?  Well you ate all your calories and the calories of others, that’s what happened.

So next time you cook and bring lunch, and your coworker ask you “do you want to go out for lunch” say “no thank you I have a very yummy lunch here. I’ll seat with you if you bring lunch back to the office”.

I know it’s not easy but think about all the calories and the money you’ll save!  Practice saying no and eventually you’ll feel empowered and in control of your lunch time, your calorie intake and your life!
