Confession of a Carb Queen

I have to make a confession.  I love carbs.  Love.

And while I make pretty good choices with my fruits and goes the same for carbs.  Too much of a good thing is not always good.

I did what I had to do...and I know there are starving children out there and people who cannot afford food, but I had to throw away the cookies I had bought because I am not using self-control.

Cookies and quick carbs are a trigger food for me.  I know it.  I am going to do something about it.

I also listened to a podcast last night about sabotage words - try, but, wish.

Since I know that they (those lovely Trader Joe chocolate chip cookies) are a trigger food and I am not showing self-control and I know I need to do something about it...instead of saying, I wish I didn't eat them.  Well, now I can't.

And since I know eating in front of the TV is not helpful for me and my journey, I am committing (not trying, but committing) to NOT eating my meals with the TV on.  For a while, I was doing well with that and then I slowly, little by little, began again and wouldn't you know, the old behaviors come back with it.

No more.  At least not this week.  TV off for meals and snacks.
