I went to the grocery store this morning. I was too tired to go last night. 

As I walked into the store I saw the fruits and veggies to the left. I saw the pastries to the front and to the right. 

I went left. 

As I went to the freezer section I saw my key lime pie individual slices that I will pick up on a free day on the right. I stayed straight and walked past. 

I was not thinking about the calories, but rather my goals. Are these foods going to move me closer or further away from my goals? 

Goals and not calories…

Obviously calories count. But I don’t typically count calories. I eat according to portion size. Calories are different also depending on when they are eaten. 

I wonder how our eating would change if we thought more of our goals to help us with making decisions when it comes to food. 

I’ve said numerous times in my blog that I will have a free day or two free meals a week where I will eat anything I want. But my mind is slowing changing. 

I’m so close to my goals, I don’t want anything to slow me down. I just gotta keep going. 

What’s going to be the most efficient for me? What’s the fastest way? 

Free meals where you overeat and give the body extra calories can be beneficial with keeping the metabolism going. But that feeling I have on Monday morning after a big free day can sometimes be tough. 

Give it to me. I will eat my broccoli. I will get a 10-12 hour fast between my last and first meal. Just get there! 

Next time you go into the store think about your goals! 

Picking up that piece of fruit, that spinach, that lean beef, may become a little easier!
