Besides my absolute LACK of willpower,
besides my complete lack of self control
besides my inability for restraint....
I like food.
Yes, there is is. I like food.
It taste good, it is my friend, it soothes me.
I LIKE FOOD.
BUT I decided to crunch some numbers.
IF I had eaten donuts on donut hole Monday-- which actually I usually eat kolaches and a few donut holes... I would have eat a total of
27 grams of fat
That is TWO sausage and cheese kolaches and a donut. I DON'T always eat that but a LOT of times I would easily eat two kolaches!
But what I did eat was an omelet
2 eggs, a T and a 1/2 of cheese, some onions and a T of bacon sprinkles
17.8 grams of fat
Fat is generally not my biggest concern when I am dieting... I generally find I don't get ENOUGH fat over a week period and make sure to use Olive Oil and healthy fats like nuts (minus peanuts), avocado and even dairy.
SO. I like omelette's. I like to make them and they are yummy but I still DON'T make that choice consistently! I like the comfort of other food and it taste better usually!
I made mac and cheese for lunch today-- HOMEMADE mac and cheese. I ate my serving then an hour later I had another very small serving and then I THREW away the entire rest of the casserole dish. I know very wasteful BUT I wont eat anymore this way! SO there is my willpower. Eat a small amount and then throw it away!
I am doing the VERY inconsistent diet thing right now. Some diets I am AWESOME--- I am in the frame of mind and I can just DO IT--- last summer I lost 40 pounds! Pretty darn easily I might add! BUT some diets when I have not yet reached my "I am in the zone" frame of mind I eat very inconsistently! I figure at least half of my meals are "diet-y" and the other half aren't but still isn't that better than nothing!
But really I am just making more excuses because that is what I do.
I am stressed.
I am not feeling well so I ate "X".
It is cheaper to eat this than healthier option.
I am too busy.
EXCUSE, EXCUSE, EXCUSE.
and that is why I am so bad at dieting.
