Do you fudge on your stats? I mean, do you shave off a few calories here, maybe not record some there? Do you do things to make yourself look good? Tempted to do it?
I want to!!!
Sometimes my mind creatively forgets about stuff I've eaten.
Such as, yesterday, I made Banana Bread and had a small piece. While tracking my food, I almost did not put it down. Well because, because (My Grand Daughter always says, "Because because...." when she is explaining things to me. So cute!) I did not have a full piece. I only had the middle part, (the best part) of a piece. So in my crazy mind, I was thinking it did not count. Really?
I was really thinking about not recording it. Does not matter whether I think it counts, because because my body sure does!! So in the record books it goes.
Oh....I also had to record the 3 small pieces of pizza I had yesterday ~ they also counts. Sometimes I wonder where my brain is, most of the time.
We had our Son and Son in Law, Daughter and Grand babies over yesterday, so I thought I would "treat" them to pizza. I tried to set myself up, so I would not over do, but was not successful. I did have 3 pieces of pizza. However.....they were quite small, which is good.....but it was still 3 pieces. One would have been sufficient!
So we get done eating and I'm on the couch, watching the babies, cuddled in my blankie (I am so a blankie girl ~ Love them) Anyway, my Daughter says, "Let go for a walk!". (Happy face........)
I'm like "OK" through gritted teeth.....So off we go. On the walk, I was telling her that I was unhappy with myself for eating too much. And she says, "Well mom, you could have served a healthier option". Humph! So I say, "I was just showing my "love" language to my family." And she says, "Pizza does not show us love." Well Ouch!!! Huh?
Pizza always made my heart warm and fuzzy......but it does not do the same for them.? Well now what?
I have to get over the fact that food does not show love. Food is food only - something we need to nourish the body. That's it....that's all it's for! Well it is pleasurable, but it's really to fuel the body.
I would have probably shown my family more love, if I had prepared a healthier dish and then gone outside to do something together. Instead of us all retreating to our own place, because our bellies were too full of Pizza.
Hummmmm.......Food is not love....Food is not love....
I will have to work on this!!
