Battle The Cravings
So I made it through it. I stressed a bit, but I managed to fight the evil crave monster.
The cravings actually started while I was at school studying. I smelled peanut butter crackers. I rationalized that it wouldn't throw me off that much to have some crackers. I had lost so much already and felt it was ok. I got them and ate them. Well, it didn't take long for my body to let me know that it wasn't cool. Needless to say, I spent a considerable amount of time in the restroom. It was unbelievable how just a few peanut butter crackers would send my body into this rejection mode so quickly. So, to sumarize; rationalizing is not good, rewarding is good, but making excuses for eating something I sholdn't will come with a price. If it wasn't spending time in the restroom, it would have been not losing weight and worse, gaining it.
I also received a text from my health coach around that time. Couldn't have planned it better. She is great about being positive. But I also know she can be the drill Sergeant of TSFL. There were a few times she let me have it when I needed it.
So, today is a new day and another day closer to achieving my goals.
