Once again, sorry for the pictureless post.
Saturday and Sunday were not good. When I had my "eat whatever you want because it is your birthday" day on Friday, I awakened the sugar/carb addiction within me. Saturday I didn't do well. I finished off the birthday cake....and ate quite a bit of pasta. I felt physically dependent on these things. I know that sounds silly, but if you've been there, you know, and if you haven't then you don't.
I realized that in order to get over this, I was going to HAVE to STOP eating the bad stuff... as long as you eat it, you will keep craving it. eerrr...it's like a drug, really.
So, Sunday I determined to eat healthy. But sometimes willpower is not enough. I felt like I was starving. But still, I stayed within calories UNTIL time for bed. I felt like I just HAD to have something sweet. had too. Luckily, there was nothing "sweet" in the house (i.e. ice cream, little debbies, etc). I knew a binge was coming on and I felt powerless to stop it. So......I compromised on myself. I told myself that I could eat granola cereal with almonds in it (because it does taste a little sweet but it is a natural sweet) BUT that I had to eat it out of a punch cup. LOL A punch cup! tiny! I refilled it twice. :)
So.............Saturday was ppfpfftttt.
Sunday was not perfect but making progress out of this terrible stronghold.
And today is Monday. New week. I'm forgetting the things that are behind and focusing on today.
Last night, our pastor preached about "man's days are few and full of trouble"....about life is NEVER going to be perfect...there are ALWAYS going to be struggles. He preached about learning to live life to the fullest DESPITE the struggles....about NOT WAITING for the struggle to end to enjoy your life. I thought it fit my weight loss stuff perfectly.
I hope you have a great day and thanks for reading!!!! :)
