Whilst eating my breakfast I looked down at my bowl of plain Cheerios and decided they would taste a whole lot better covered in sugar, and they sure did. But when I fill out my food journal I have selective amnesia and only jot down the Cheerios, not the scoops of sugar.
Here are other ways I lie to myself:
-Gummy Multivitamins. Sugar tricks my brain.
-Running with my dog. She's stops numerous time so it's more like a jog or a brisk walk.
-Lowfat yogurt. When I eat the whole carton in one sitting it doesn't really matter if it's low-fat.
-Thinking, "Tonight I'll only have 1 margarita." Yeah, right!
