Yesterday was the first day in a long time that I didn't eat any wheat, and I was under my calories for the day even though I had a glass of wine and a bit of chocolate...I think I may be on my way to beating the addiction.
I find that this is more a mind game then anything else. I eat badly and it triggers the cravings, the night munchies and then I feel like crap the next morning, almost hung over. I know that my body doesn't need to be digesting at night and I mess up the growth and repair cycle when I eat late. Now I just have to remind myself of that when the bread is calling to be toasted at 10 pm!
Today also marks the seventh day in a row that I've done at least 50 mins of cardio. I'd let things slide for a while and my body could feel it. I've only gained 10 lbs but I've lost muscle mass and the fat is certainly taking up more space!
So, proactively I bought a tonned of veggies for this week. I cooked a flat of chicken breasts and I've got lots of good things to eat and very little temptations around. I feel in control. This is going to be a good week and come Sunday, I will post a loss.
Anyone want to join me?
