"I got a new attitude!" (sing it in Patti LaBelle's voice)
I'm in a tough spot because I'm a little too poor to buy more Optavia food. A slight emergency threw me off my budgeting game.
I have a bunch of savory stuff, but this girl needs her sweets or I'll cheat with a slice of cheesecake like I did last night.
So I checked the nutrition on the Optavia bars and things and saw that they're all about 100 calories and the amount of protein (around 10g) is close to the same as the amount of carbs (around 12-14g).
Being resilient and an excellent Googler, I searched and found some brands that had bars that met this parameter. So now I can keep coloring inside the Optavia lines as best I can until my mid-month paycheck which includes commission (yay!) and I'll be able to order everything I need.
I could have a very defeatist attitude over this. I mean big time bad attitude because I'd beat myself up for not being more prepared and spending money on less important things than my health. I'll admit that financial responsibility is an area where I struggle. I'm a compulsive online shopper. I'm better than I used to be, though, so onwards and upwards.
So, as Patti LaBelle sang, "I've got a new attitude!" I'm doing the best I can with what I have at the moment, and I have to allow myself to be human.
I still want to lose weight and am focused more on that now that I found a way to make the diet work (a little). It would have been very easy for me to just give up because I didn't have the right food. If it's not perfect, I tend to bail, which is another bad habit of mine.
But this go around I'm not allowing that to happen. I'm staying the course!
