Default Oy, a skin of the teeth day

... but at least it's nearly bedtime.

Don't know why some days are like that.
I started with the same breakfast as usual, a good muesli.
I was due at a christening reception after the service today, so I threw in the bin the luscious bacon joint that was calling my name: if I'd had lunch out I knew I wouldn't want/SHOULDN'T want a big meal at night.
After an hour and a half at the reception, on one mineral water and NO sign of any food, I walked up home and got the bacon out of the bin (it was plastic wrapped) and cooked up some veg.
I had 2 cookies (bought in for a mtng with my boss last week, calorie counted) and binned the rest, without the plastic. I wasn't craving then but I suspected I would be later on.

I'd planned a lower calorie day today, because I ate quite high yesterday but even with my evening soup, I'm up to 1500 (my sparkpeople max is 1550).

And it's only self-respect that's stopping me diving straight in to the bin after the cookies.

Holding on, holding on but I'm not happy, I'm physically hungry and mentally craving. Early night I think, because I WILL NOT succumb!
a) I don't want to break my 111/111 day streak.
b) It's getting very close to my vacation target and I Know my tendency to shoot myself in the foot. humph.

HANG ON!!!!!

You have 50 calories... have a cup of sliced strawberries, a 1/2 cup of applesauce, a 1/2 slice of bread, 1/2 T of peanut butter.

Have a nice hot cup of delicious tea, a bubble bath and bed.

You can do this! You will!!!!

Default Man, I HATE those days.

The hot tea is a great idea. I find that really fills me and SOOTHES me. Calms me down and ends those horrible "what can I eat next?" feelings.

Pull out all the stops. Use those diversion tactics - journaling, reading, 3FC, straightening up, TV - anything.

Hang tough, tough lady.

If i bin something that may be a temptation for me i make sure to do something like dump the coffee grounds or something equally disgusting on top... That way there is no way they can call my name

mmmm... strawberries. My family has gone through 5 pounds in the last week! I eat a couple of cups a days (100 calories per two cups) and the kids freaking love them.

Strawberries. Yummm. They've been fantastic lately. We're going through tons of them at my home as well. Just had a few a couple of minutes ago. Firm and sweet. Delish.

I had a day like that today. My little guy is sick with the flu and it's frustrating, the other one is now lying on the couch and I'm sure he's next. Plus big brother has been getting redder in the face all day, i keep expecting him to get sick.

I had 1/2 a Pepsi a little while ago and was 'how did i get this?' kind of feeling like I just woke up. I know I had a bit of ice cream today and a couple of those little chocolate bars cause I was craving chocolate.

At the same time I think I've had a great week, a little treat was okay but now back on track.

You did awesome. You are doing so awesome!

I just remember I have a bunch of berries in the fridge right now too! They were on sale this morning! Yum!
