It was a great trip overall, but the timing could have been better. I have a very LONG list of wedding and work tasks waiting for me in California! But, we couldn’t have changed the timing because the trip is part of Ben’s family’s timeshare that they have this week each year.
Marco Island coinciding with Jon’s graduation was just lucky since we didn’t have to fly out to the east coast again. Plus we got some good stuff done in MD too!
In Atlanta – We only had one hour in between flights and had to pick up something for dinner. We didn’t have much time when we finally got to our concourse since I made Ben walk the whole way and it was over half a mile away. I could have packed two sandwiches, but that would have been no fun. I totally scored and found a pretty healthy restaurant in the food court. I got lentil salad – they really filled up this little Styrofoam container!
Plus, I want to save room for dessert – trail mix with chocolates 🙂
I finished “Skinny Bitch” on the way to New Jersey and will review it tomorrow. I knew what to expect so I wasn’t too impressed with it.
Now I am on the Making Peace step of the “Intuitive Eating” book. The instructions are to make a list of the foods that appeal to you. Then, put a check next to the foods you allow yourself to enjoy and circle the ones you deny yourself. It is possible that your list can be very long, but I think what the list is looking for are the foods you truly enjoy that you don’t let yourself eat or when you do you feel really guilty or go off the deep end and binge.
My list is about 20 things, but I could probably add more…it includes:ice cream, waffles/pancakes, cake, fries and pizza.
You are supposed to give yourself permission to eat one food from your list and go out and do it.
Check in with yourself to see if it’s as good as you thought. If you really like it continue to go out and buy it or order it at a restaurant.
Obviously I’m starting with trail mix, which I do eat, but always overeat it and feel guilty. But I do realize trail mix is one of those foods that is calorie dense and easy to over do, but my focus is going to be feeling good and not worry about serving size right now.
I just paced back and forth for a bit looking like a crazy 🙂
