I gave myself some room this time, in hopes of getting past this particular aspect of my psyche… but it’s come back to haunt me. I’ve switched/substituted so many foods on my diet, that it’s practically unrecognizable now. And what’s funny, is as soon as I get off this diet, I’m gonna start voluntarily be eatin sweet potatoes, spinach and avocados all the time, by choice !! Darn myself !!!!! Oh well. I may be unsuccessful in carrying out Experiment #3, but luckily, just listening to my own wants and body signals, I’ve been successful in the long run in shredding the fat/gaining muscle all on my own, by just watching what I eat.. choosing healthier foods when possible…. having some of my treats on a regular basis… and eating out with wisdom on what foods have to offer, nutritionally. So that’s what I plan to do. Live life MY way.
For just a little while, I’m not gonna offer nutritional stats on my pics unless I just really wanna point out something important !! It’s at the point of irritating me, and time consuming. For most of the foods that I eat on a regular basis, I know the stats pretty well by memory. But because I put them in print, I always double check myself by looking them up. Why? Because I think it’s important for others who are reading my blog to see what the stats are… esp. on things when it’s surprising or commonly thought otherwise. But right now I need to take a break from it. Do I usually count calories? No. I estimate in my head 300-400 calorie meals… 100 calorie snacks. But I don’t keep a count.. well, not anymore. For years, I did. But now I know, for the most part, what the counts are. Back to “normalcy” in my life. FREEDOM. That’s what I’m about.
How did ya’ll like that SUNSHINE today ?? I’m so excited about warm weather coming our way !! Water aerobics, Zumba H2O… laying out at the pool and chattin with friends !! Snackin on blueberries and grapes. I can’t wait !!
