A Good Day Deserves A Cookie!

15 Dec

Mmm Mmm Mmm I just ate two super duper yummy cookies, and I don’t even feel guilty about it! ha! πŸ˜€ The reason I don’t feel guilty? Cause they are (or were since they are already in my tummy, lol) my reward to myself for not screwing up today. Yah me for not screwing up! πŸ˜›

Yesterday was the cake, the day before the chocolates…I was determined to not cheat today, not even budge a little and I didn’t! It was almost like I had to prove it to myself, make sure I could still hold firm to my eating plan without little detours to little nibbles high in calories. You wouldn’t believe how relieved I am that I was able to manage, phew. I wasn’t even tempted by any of the food around me at work, it was easy to ignore it and when it was offered to me to just say no.

No! NO! Nooooo-ooooo! nooooOOOOOOooooo! Don’t you just love that word? lol

heaven in your mouth! Yum!

Just above is a pic of the cookies, 2 cookies are 3 points but lemme tell ya, that is a well spent 3 points! πŸ˜€

I must be used to proper portions because it doesn’t even seem weird to take only two cookies out of the container anymore. I make a bit of a production out of it, lol, food is not just blindly eaten in my world (anymore), every bite is savoured, enjoyed, fully tasted…so with my evening treats I put them on a plate, make a cup of tea to go with them and sit all comfy on the couch so I can eat the treat slowly and fully enjoy myself. It takes a little longer then normal to eat two small cookies but that’s ok – it’s about enjoying the food now instead of stuffing my face.

Although, having just said that, when I am really hungry I look at my food and think “that’s all I get?!” I always think it won’t be enough even though it always ends up being enough. Must be a mental thing. shrug.

Today I ate:

50 grams shreddies = 3 points

1/2 cup 1% milk = 1 point

1/2 cup diced peaches = 1 point

1/2 cup Maple Baked Beans = 2 points

1 piece toast = 1 point

2 triangles light laughing cow = 1 point

1 Activia yogurt = 2 points

mixed raw vegg = 0 points

85 grams whole wheat pasta = 5 points

1/4 cup Alfredo and Sun Dried Tomato sauce = 2 points

mixed cooked veggies and grilled veggies = 0 points

2 Hershey’s York cookies = 3 points

Total points eaten is 22. sigh.

I was so happy I hadn’t screwed up today but while writing down my food list I realized I forgot to put in my tracker the 1/2 cup diced peaches I topped my shreddies with. Oops. So I guess I really didn’t earn the cookies I ate…but I already ate them so not like there’s anything I can do about it now. shrug. And really, that’s not a fail, it’s not like I snacked on the chocolates at work, I just forgot to write down some fruit I ate…I think that’s an acceptable mistake, and no reason to feel guilty about the cookies in my tummy. πŸ™‚
