Last Week’s TrimHealthyMama Food Journal

Every week I post what I ate, on and off plan with TrimHealthyMama. Recipes with an asterisk come from the TrimHealthyMama cookbook.

I ate off plan a few times this week. I haven’t weighed myself, but my clothes fit the same. This week I’m back to stricter THM though. The first time I ate off plan, we had been invited to dinner with friends. The meal was THM safe, but then the host pulled out dessert – brownies and ice cream. Since it was a small, intimate affair and she was dishing out the bowls without asking, I decided not to make an issue of it. I took a very small serving of ice cream.

Then, yesterday we went to one of those “Taste Of…” outdoor food festivals. I did great staying on plan, even taking advantage of several free Bai drinks at a display! But at the very end, I ate a few bites of my daughter’s ice cream.

Before we left for the festival, I considered bringing a THM-safe treat. I had No-Bake Peanut Butter bars in my fridge! But I didn’t. Next time, I’ll be sure to pack something sweet. When everyone around me is enjoying their ice cream, I won’t feel deprived.

Something I remembered this week that’s crucial to THM success: don’t let myself get too hungry! I went several hours inbetween fueling myself Saturday, and then overate (and ate off plan) when I finally sat down to eat. It’s better to have a little Fuel Pull snack instead of allowing 5-6 hours to pass between meals.
