Food Journal: Dec 25th

Merry Christmas!!!  Today could have been a disasterous food day – but I’m proud to say, it wasn’t!  I wasn’t truely able to keep an acturate count of my calories because most of the dishes were homemade, but I was able to maintain portion control.  I stayed away from foods that I know would be issues for me – like the sweet potato casserole and the sugar coated pecans (homemade and still warm from the over… according to those that had them).  I also brought my own measured trail mix for snacks to keep me from heading to the dinner table all day after the meal was over.

Here is the real suprise – I didn’t feel hungry all day and I didn’t feel like I was missing out.  Maybe I’m still in the honeymoon phase that comes with any new diet – but I’m not actually following a diet.  I’m just journalling my food choices and paying attention to my sodium.  These are things I’m going to have to do for the rest of my life – which makes this the often referred to “lifestyle change” and not a fade diet.

Anyway – Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
