Snacky cakes has been a favorite phrase for food for me ever since I first heard Eric Cartman from South Park used it. I wish that cakes were actually part of my every day snacking food but unfortunately, I know I wouldn’t be losing weight if I was indulging in cake every day.
Anyway, since I have begun my Weight Watchers program, I’ve tried my best to make some positive changes to the way I have been eating. One issue that I’ve always struggled with during the day is not eating enough snacks. I would go for long periods without giving my body the nourishment it needed but that habit is quickly changing.
I’m making a point of picking out healthy snacky cakes while grocery shopping and have been making sure I always have something on me. Whether it’s an apple, some edaname, or a bunch of carrots, I’m doing much better at munching on the right types of foods.
Last night while I was trying to do last minute homework, I found myself INCREDIBLY hungry around midnight. I had dinner at six and then called it quits on eating for the night, although I should have snacked earlier because I knew I would be up late writing. I didn’t want to fill myself because of my weekly weigh-in this morning, so instead I just grabbed a giant spoon and scooped up some fat-free cottage cheese. 40 calories. Like 2 grams of protein. 0 fat. It was just enough to hold me over for the next two hours as I desperately tried to gain the motivation to write about the Declaration of Independence for class.
Today’s meeting didn’t go as fabulously as the past two weeks as I gained 1.9 pounds. I wasn’t too shocked because I had multiple mistakes this week but it only motivates me to try harder for next week. It was my fourth official meeting and my friend Laura and I were both excited to receive our “key chain reward”… It kinda lacks the actual ability to be a key chain since it’s in the shape of a bullring, however it does make a great toe ring! Apparently every time we hit a goal, we’ll get a little charm for it. It also works great as a nose ring but I’ll save that picture for the future.
I hope you all have a glorious weekend but first – tell me -
What are your favorite healthy snacks? Do you like cottage cheese? I know a lot of people don’t!
And if you COULD be eating cake all the time – what kind of cake would you be nibbling on?
Talk to you all soon!
