So, last night was a particular horrendous night for me, diet-speaking. I haven’t been following any particular plan, but cooking at home from scratch tends to lend itself towards healthier eating in general. However, after having my pork tenderloin and home made mashed potatoe (yes, just one small red potato) I was left less than satisfied. I managed to make it over two hours before I started mindlessly eating…and it was the worst possible option: peanut butter and chocolate chips. The reason behind the choice? It’s the only relatively sweet thing that is in my house right now (scary, right?).
The major problem was that as I lifted the spoonfull of peanut butter (with chocolate chips dropped on top) to my mouth, my husband looks over at me and says “Really?” I stopped, looked down at the spoon of peanut butter and chocolate and promptly shoved it in my mouth. After one bite, however, the guilt won out against the sweets craving and I put the rest back in the cupboard (I had scooped the peanut butter out into a custard cup).
This morning I woke up, still wanting the same thing. I got past it with some Frosted Mini Wheats – Bitesized – Cinnamon Roll flavored cereal in heated milk. Basically it has the consistency of like, oatmeal, but tastes like a cinnamon roll. Not bad if you’re in a pinch for something sweet, I decided.
I’m not sure what the deal is with the cravings, could be hormonal, could be life in general. All I know, is that last night the cravings were akin to those I had when I was on Ideal Protein, not an ounce better, at all.
This morning I’m feeling more in control, albeit not as much as I’d like, but today I am going to make healthy decisions, go to the gym, and feel good about myself. At least, that is the plan. Well, I’m off to start my day, hopefully on the right side of the bed this time, pack my gym bag and get ready to go.
Have a great day, everyone!
