Yup, throwing away rotten vegetables is a huge sign here as well.
I also know I am off plan when...
- I order whatever sounds good off the menu at a restaurant instead of my carefully picked on-plan item that I planned after analyzing the nutrition facts. I don't need to look at the menu! ahhh!! Menus are evil with all their tempting pictures and words! lol
- When I find myself having pepsi instead of water with every meal
- When I find myself piling on unhealthy things (that are normally restricted to a tablespoon or two) onto my otherwise healthy plate - mountains of cheese, sour cream, ranch dressing, gravy, etc...
- When my calorie log book has empty pages because I haven't been writing down calories. Which most likely means I haven't been weighing my food, which means I am not tracking calories, which probably means I am eating too much!!
-when I think it's a good idea to have an extra snack instead of doing my daily workout.
-when my shopping cart has more processed, boxed, or frozen items than fresh produce. If I am on plan more than 50% of my cart is from the fresh produce section. I gotta keep it that way!
