Ever notice how we reach for certain "comfort" foods when under stressful situations? I noticed that my husband felt the need to raid his stash of Payday bars and also noshed on a few other things he would not normally be eating as he has been doing very well at watching his eating lately. I did OK yesterday but this evening I was having some major cravings and wanted to just go in the kitchen and graze on everything and anything ...especially the sweet stuff, or maybe the salty stuff, or maybe both. I called Tim (he was at the store) on his cell and told him I was going to go for a run to try to deal with the cravings and get my workout in. I drank lots of water and worked out for an hour and it did help me to deal with everything. The stress was still there when I got home and the temptations are still calling me, but I feel like I made the right choice and I hope I will be rewarded in tomorrow's weigh-in. Even so, I am glad to see i made the right choice .... one I never would have dreamed I would do just a couple of years ago.
I know I am moving in the right direction.
