Someone brings you a Cinnabon that they bought just.for.you.
You have to eat it. Right?
I had to eat it.
Up until that point my eating was in check for the day. After the Cinnabon things got ugly- marshmallows, peanut butter on a spoon, "fruit" snacks. UGH!
Did you know that a classic Cinnabon roll has 880 calories? Nope, I didn't either. I inhaled that thing in probably less than 10 minutes. 880 out of 2000 calories in less than 10 minutes.
Here's the thing... It's not the 880 calories, it's how I felt after eating it. How I CRAVED more and more processed foods after eating it. I've never considered foods to be "trigger" foods for me, but after really thinking about my eating yesterday I realized that I do, indeed, have some triggers.
But he bought it just.for.me. How can I turn that away?
Goal set- Eat healthy food that will help me be a stronger triathlete.
I *could* have had a few bites and saved the rest to share with the husband later. But I didn't...
Food isn't "bad", but if it causes me to lose track of my goals, then it is "bad" for me at this time in my life.
How do you pass on "special" foods?
