I am feeling so great since getting more consistent with eating healthy and getting regular exercise. Yesterday I was working at home and wanted to eat crap all day long! No one was home to see me, so why not? I fought All. Day. Long!
I fought the urge through lunch. And the afternoon. And supper. And the evening.
The only thing keeping me from bingeing was focusing on how great I was feeling. And knowing I will indulge over the holiday weekend helped a little bit. It’s okay to indulge occasionally but I need to learn to plan for those times and do well more often.
I am incredibly proud to report that I stayed on track all day!
I woke up in the middle of the night hungry. I just went back to sleep. I am now starving and cannot wait for lunch. I’m trying really, really hard to stay on track today too.
This morning I was feeling a bit lighter, so stepped on the scale. It’s not official until my next weigh-in, but I lost 1.3 pounds in just one day! It made yesterday totally worth it! I’m hoping it’ll help me stick to it today as well.
At work will be easy. I packed my lunch so can only eat what I brought. Tonight could be dicey. I do need to clean the house – bad – so will have to stay busy with that. If I keep moving, I hope it’ll keep my mind focused.
Tomorrow I plan to get up and go for a run right away. Then we’ll be busy with the local 4th of July parade and other festivities.
What tips do you have for not giving in to temptation?
