Fuel or filler- 100 Days of Weight Loss by Linda Spangle
I love the fillers! The sugary, the sweet, the fatty, and the salty. I love the way it tastes and I love eating it. I know it is not good for me and later I will pay for it since I feel lousy after I eat it.
I also eat good wholesome foods as well. As I am learning I really have to cut back on the "filler" snack foods that are easy to pick up and pop in. I am going to have to really use my magic notebook and my willpower to stay away from the fillers that are around the office.
So today I filled my purse with a few of my favorite fuel foods- an orange, carrots, celery and cheese. I kept them at my desk and snacked on them when I felt low and it made me feel so much more even with my energy level to munch on two extra small healthy meals during the day.
I got some emails today that got me all worked up and angry. I really wanted to drown my upset emotions with the chocolate bars that were in the break room, but instead I picked up my keys and walked to the science center where I was able to vent to the science tech and get some validations of my frustrations. I used up some calories in the process. I was pretty proud of myself for choosing to walk it off rather than eating through it.
I keep telling myself this is a journey with hills and valleys. The destination is worth it so just keep at it and never give up!
