When AF is in town
I have been doing really well occupying myself in other ways when a craving hits, finding something healthy to munch on or whatever. I know that it's about just making a choice not to eat [insert vice here] and moving on until the craving passes, which it almost always does, or just replacing it. But man, AF is here and she is ravenous. Try as I might, I can't shake the cravings! I am doing pretty well- if I am craving chocolate, I'll have a 100 calorie oreo pack, or if I want something salty, I'll do a handful of wheat thins. But that viscious aunt spent 4 hours fighting me for a Dove bar. I tried to convince her that a sugarfree Fudgesicle was just as good, or a Skinny Cow, but she just wouldn't relent. I've been snacking more this week than I have been since I started. Soooo.... do you beat yourself up when AF comes? Do you give yourself a little cheating room there? I'm loading up on water to compensate, fighting the cravings like ****, but I know that this is my biology, I've always had this happen during that time of the month. What about y'all?
Don't worry what people think, they don't do it very often.
