On the cusp of the TOM, I was ravenous yesterday evening. It was not thirst. I had consumed 60 oz of water yesterday. Major munchies attack! I calmed myself, focused, did some lookups on calorie counts, and made my choices. I made a hot apple for myself (chop apple, sprinkle with cinnamon, nutmeg, and splenda packet, and microwave for 5 minutes). After that...I was still hungry. Even after 20 minutes. Yesterday was the first day of me doing 40 minutes on the elliptical. I had wiggle room. But I didn't want to wake up with regret the next day. I decided to pop a bag of kettle corn. Afterwards, I decided that going to bed and settling in for the night would be the best thing for me. I did not wake up ravenous, and was so glad the munchies were over! I really shouldn't be tough on myself. I didn't max out on calories yesterday, even with the munchies.
Today was the second day of change. Upping my time to 40 minutes. I definitely think it was the best change since I started on my weight loss. It's amazing that, when I first started...I could only go 5 minutes. And now I am up to 40 minutes! Wee hoo!
