View Full Version : Proud! - and a little annoyed!

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.

You're doing great! I struggle with the same thing-nobody else that lives here is on a diet-so, things go crazy with them on the food front. Kudos for not giving in. Soon enough, the pang of annoyance will pass and you'll be slightly less tempted every day. ^_^

I'm in the car a couple hours a day transporting kids to their MANY activities and school so I have had to try to plan ahead with snacks too. Its been saving me calories and a good bit of money. :)

I keep B*tch Bars in my car (our name for protein/nut bars) in the glove compartment. My Cute Boyfriend tends to get a weeee bit cranky when he's hungry and he will want me to stop at a drive-thru "for a snack" which I flat out refuse. I just hand him a bar and say, "Quit your b*tchin."

That is so great that you did resist! Kudos to you!

I keep protein bars in my purse in case of emergency!

I do the same. Keep protein bars available wherever you are. It's much easier to resist temptation when you have a back-up.

I carry snacks for my daughter but never thought to be carrying them around for me. I think everyone is going to start having B*itch bar stashes now ;)

You showed strength in the face of temptation (or maybe you weren't so tempted given your rundown of the breakfast sandwich ingredients!), if only all of us could do that all of the time!

Snacks are a lifesaver as long as you don't eat them and then proceed to eat whatever else is offered too!
