10:30pm - stopped at Arby's. 😬 I did really think about it before I got something. But I actually could hardly eat anything I ordered because it made me sick. Haha. So I had half a ham and cheese sandwich, like 4 fries and two bites of a turnover. So this is good for me to know next time I have cravings I can remind myself I didn't even really enjoy it.
Water- only 1.5 L
Today was the first day I really had to deal with cravings as intense as I did today. I think partially because I was in situations I hadn't planned for - whereas as when I'm eating with friends or eating out I've come in with a game plan. Maybe the cravings are higher due to my period as well?
The positive side, I'm glad I'm learning and really glad I've stopped making "treats" multiple times a day. The 60 min clip you mentioned talked about how with sugar you eat so much and then you have to eat more to get the same pleasure. I was def seeing that in my life. I'd want more and more of things - the daily coffee shop used to be a donut was a treat, then it was daily, then I wanted more than just a single donut. So even if I have occasional treats and splurges- I know big picture I'm doing so much better for my body and really being aware and on purpose when I do have a treat. I think that's a big shift for me -- and really what makes this a lifestyle rather than a crash diet.
Also - we forgot to talk about wine. I have a client Mtg for drinks Monday, so I'd like to know how to prepare for that.
