Last week I decided that it was time to watch what I eat for a few weeks, before the holidays get here. Skip dessert, eat yogurt, be healthier. Some of my pants and shirts are fitting a little too tightly and I want them to be more comfortable this winter. I don't want to have to buy new clothes.
So I have been depriving myself throughout the day. Low-calorie breakfast. Hot tea (I've given up coffee with all the cream and sugar). Simple lunch with yogurt, granola bar, grapes and pretzels. Healthy.
Then I get home from school and I start to crave salt. I scarf down piles of kettle-cooked chips followed by mounds of chocolate-I-need-something-sweet-to-follow-the salt Halloween candy.
I just can't fight the hunger from 11:00 lunch to 6 or 7 p.m. dinner...I have to eat SOMETHING at 4ish. I should be going for a walk. The weather has been gorgeous lately but all I want to do is rest. Sit around. NOT exercise. I should be eating fruit or carrot sticks. Ew.
I try to eat a sensible dinner, but carbs are everywhere: rice, pasta, bread. And on the weekends its much worse...I have no self control at all...I eat everything in sight and I usually gout out to eat so there is tons of friend food and other junk.
Generally, I love myself...but every now and then I take a look in the mirror or a squeeze into a pair of pants and think...if only I had a little bit more self control..
These are all the pictures of food from my computer over the past couple of months...
