You know, I find that when I'm dieting, it is SO much easier to shop. I know exactly what I can and can not have. A week back into my WOE (way of eating), I can easily say no to the snack foods that I have issues with (damn you, tortilla chips!!), and look forward to the foods that I -can- have.
This morning I drove to Bloom. See, I've got a contract with these guys who work for NASA to do some graphic work, and I'm expecting a call from them. Unfortunately, my phone is dead, my friend has my charger, and she's not home, so the only thing I have to charge my phone with is the car charger. I needed to get some veggies (all we have left is broccoli), so I went on an expedition to Bloom. I -love- Bloom. If I were happy with my weight, oh the things I would buy!! Mostly foods that I once enjoyed at home, things from my dad's country that I miss (plantains, yucca, mangoes, papaya...), and the awesome specialty tortilla chips.
But I said no! I totally said no to all of it and bought some good stuff. Chili flavored oil for stir fries, horseradish sauce for Willy's roast beef sandwiches, sugar-free raspberry vinegrette for salads, cucumbers, mushrooms, and celery.. and a few other things I can't remember. But I love the ease of shopping, and the peace of mind that I get, knowing that anything I eat won't make me gain weight. With that freedom, I could chew on this celery all day.. ha!
