Ever since I started this journey the most difficult thing for me has been staying on plan around others that are indulging. Unfortunately, I don't usually leave my house prepared for an unexpectedly long car ride - which will change after today.
So the fam and I go run errands this morning and we end up out for about an hour longer than anticipated. When we are almost home hunger took hold of the fam and we roll through the ever lovely Bojangles drive thru (gotta have more). The fam proceeds to order the usual greasy, heavy offerings. Although I was very tempted, I resisted the urge to order the MSG on a biscuit with a side of trans fat laden potatoes.
I went home and made a cup of cereal with an entire cup of blueberries, and 1/2 a cup of milk. My breakfast had 292 calories. Theirs had 1452!!!!!! I came home and looked everything up.
My hope is that if I resist long enough it will get alot easier, and my kids and husband will also come around and WANT to eat healthy. They do eat healthy for the most part when we are at home, but I want that to carry on outside of the house.
From now on I am not leaving the house without nuts and a piece of fruit.
