Accountability is something we all deal with at some point. Right now, this is my struggle. I haven't posted in a while because I felt ashamed to post---my weight loss became minuscule because I fell off the eating bandwagon.
I'm sure many of us go through times where we're afraid to show ourselves to our supporters because we fell off the bandwagon. This is totally normal! My parents flew in from FL yesterday and we talked about it a little. It took me that conversation to realize I didn't want accountability for my actions by posting on here. Well, I'm DONE with that!
This week has been great---I've stayed motivated and on top of my game. Last night, my fiance and I went out to eat at a Mexican restaurant. The owner paid for our whole meal, but included with that was 2 shots of tequila each, guac (which I'm not a huge fan of), and a hearty meal. I allowed myself 1 shot (I don't like tequila much, but it was top shelf and I didn't want to insult), and gave the other 3 to my fiance, that poor thing!
I ordered steak tacos, and forgot to ask without cheese. I also got my beans and rice (my one true love). Now, our waitress mixed up our meals so that my tacos had guac, and my fiance's didn't. He had already eaten one of my tacos, and I'd only taken a few bites of his before realizing the mistake. We switched, so I was out one taco. Not too upset though. I scraped off most of the cheese, and ate it like that. It was amazing! It had grilled onions and peppers in it as well as tomatoes and lettuce. Delish! I was satisfied by the 1 taco though. I also gave half of my beans and rice to my man in order to cut calories as well.
Overall, I had a wonderful meal, and still lost weight this morning. I was concerned because I couldn't calculate calories, that I'd go overboard, but because I understand portion control I was able to keep in check.
I have recommitted myself to weight loss, and I'm excited! Part of the problem was that my fiance wasn't helping me meal plan for the week---he'd just eat "whatever" and he can afford to eat junk. But that doesn't help me. So by meal planning and allowing for certain treats, it's gotten a lot better already since our talk. To have a supportive partner is imperative when going through any type of journey, and I'm lucky to have that!
I was thinking about renaming my blog guys---"Foodie on a Diet". What do you think? I have such an appreciation for good food, and since I tend to post recipes/pictures, I feel as though it may be more appropriate.
Embrace change! Let me know what you think!
Have a great weekend, everyone.
