Turkey Sandwich

I am sitting here eating a turkey sandwich. Two pieces of whole wheat bread, turkey and spinach. Typical lunch for one who wants to lose weight. I really don't like turkey sandwiches. The reason why I'm eating it is that it's on my weekly diet plan. A turkey sandwich every day for a week. Blah! But I am going to eat it. See, after years and years of diet plans, this program I'm doing works for me. If I were to do WW, I'd make those delicious muffins Jenn posted and put 10 in my mouth, justifying each one as a point. I'd crave carbs the rest of the day and I'd feel unbalanced all day long. Structured eating, 5 times a day, helps me feel balanced. I don't feel guilt, I feel like I've accomplished something healthy for myself. But what works for me doesn't work for everyone. What works for you?


  1. I don't know what works for me yet! I am feeling inspired by your blog and have worked out both monday (running) tuesday (weights) and have also began to abide by the eating 5 times a day rule. This to my brian is confusing because usually I eat 1 time a day and it is usually Ice cream for breakfast. Baby steps right? Keep up the good work!

  2. I just love you, Alison! Thanks for being you & for posting great things that work for you. You totally motivated me today! :)
