Jack Reacher and “Grain Waves”

….yes I have had a slip, a processed food slip…..yesterday went down the mountain…yes actually ventured off down the winding road to civilization WOW….and met up with an old girlfriend [no C you are not old} lol and we had a lovely morning at the movies watching the new movie out “jack reacher”….and although I had stuffed a banana down one’s throat for breakfast [as I drove, naughty!]….I felt a little light-headed by the time I had parked on the wrong side of Harbour Town and walked thro at a brisk pace….sooooo grabbed a small bag of grain waves to munch on while picking holes in Tom Cruise’s acting ability!!!

I have to say the salty crunchy GW’s were delish, I enjoyed them but….see below!?!?!? 😦

Whole Grain GW’s
Serving Size: 28 g, Calories: 133, Fat: 5.8g,

Carbs: 18.1g, Protein: 2g             

ok I did enjoy them I do admit, but when C and I went for lunch after I chose the chicken salad….and I might add it is the first salad I have ever ordered eating out.
My philosophy has always been “why pay for a few bits of lettuce etc when I can make that at home”
 So my mind-set is coming around, I did feel guilty about the gw’s and adjusted my intake at lunch, the salad by the way was delicious and I came home feeling pleased with myself. Good grief when I think of past experiences, I was too hard on myself, no wonder I kept falling short every time I dieted [dirty word]…..most of the time if I cheated [another dirty word] I felt like I had totally failed myself and just gave up in disgust……so I was on this continuous merry-go-round. In summary I am definitely stronger in mind about changing my eating habits of a lifetime, and I don’t feel like I am missing out on anything.

The mind is a strong powerful tool


oh and a final foot note…if you read Lee Child novels about the continuous adventures of “Jack Reacher” as I do, you won’t be too disappointed if you go to see the movie, when C and I heard Tom Cruise was to play the part of Jack we were mortified….Tom is opposite of what we perceived Jack to be, so I went with an open mind but also ready to shred Tom where he stood, but….it was an ok movie GM will enjoy it more as he has never read the books, but out of 10 I will rate it a 6 1/2, which is good as I was expecting a 2!!  😉

and and and….. I think Hugh Jackman is a better version of Jack Reacher…so there Tom lol

    You are slowly but surely conditioning your mind luvey and tis a grand thing. Pfft to a few grain waves – you will be better tomorrow 🙂 Don’t be too hard on yourself, for if you do and don’t allow yourself the occasional ‘bad thing’ then you will really pig out in a big way when you are tempted. You are realising your limitations, the goals you wish to reach and by gradually working through the process of what is right and what isn’t you will know what you can allow yourself. Their endeth my lecture … well done babes keep it going and feel guilty!!! 🙂 xx

    I have a certain image of Jack in my head. I think Tom can pull it off but I am afraid he will ruin the character for me. Have you gone to Lee Child’s website?
