Two weeks ago, I got very serious about my calorie count. When I hit 1300 calories in a day = That’s It! No more food or drink goes into my mouth. It has not been super hard, although in most cases it means I am done consuming by 6 PM. However, yesterday, I flew home to visit my mom.
My mom loves to take care of her kids. She bought special food for the house so I had my favorite things available. I told her about my diet and she changed up plans so we would have less calories. Somehow though with freshly grilled chicken, delicious cheese and a huge salad with olives and walnuts and so many good things, I am already at my calories for the day.
I know that I should be focused on my #longtermgoals and should walk past but how can you do that with fresh food made by mom? Short term happiness is sometimes the key to long term satisfaction.
I will just try to eat smaller portions. 🙂
