I think it must be the "that time" because I have been incredibly hungry the last two-three days and today I have craved sugar like nobody's business.
I've tried to find some healthy substitutes -- to fill up on fiber, fruit, water. Nothing works. It's in my head, I think. I have tried to compromise with some chocolate kisses dipped in reduced fat peanut butter. Mildly satisfying but I just have thought about sugary food ALL DAY LONG and I don't have a clue why. I'm keeping a log of my food intake and you can see today was HORRIBLE. I ate a sugar free pudding. Nope, that wasn't it. I ate a marshmallow Peep (yes, from Easter) - nope, not it either. I had the four kisses -- nope. I ate an apple, two mandarin oranges. I can't seem to find what it is that is going to make me feel "full" and stop that craving. Of course, I've also had the "normal" food types -- tuna salad, a cheese stick, egg white/turkey sausage on english muffin, a fresco style taco -- so not just sugary junk today. I'd like to say I threw all the sugary stuff out. I didn't, but I did add many healthy choices to choose instead of it. I've been doing so well, but today = HARD!
This has gone on for a couple of days. I hope it will pass quickly. This is the part of "healthy choices" that I'm not so fond of. *sigh* Tips ...
In the good news department, I lost 5 pounds during week one! Yay!
