Still slogging away....

Monday, April 06, 2009

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?

    I love those Kashi dark chocolate with cherries bars. For months they were a daily indulgence of mine. Lately I have switched to the Praeventia bars with the dark chocolate. They aren't quite as big, but the chocolate is more satisfying and they are only 100 calories. I still like the Kashi bars.

    Good for you. One day down. Now repeat after me. No wheat tomorrow/ no wheat tomorrow/no wheat tomorrow....

    I had a stressful day of teaching. Music festival is next week and the kids just aren't ready. I taught for about 9 hours. when I finish I just want to collapse and eat junk, but i managed to pace myself with healthy snacks today, and now I am drinking a yummy raspberry protein shake so i think i will be Ok and avoid a night binge.

    I did it, I had no wheat today...well not flour. I'm ok with sprouted grain and had an English muffin for breakfast and also had a Kashi granola bar and they have all the grains rolled like oats. With chocolate and cherries! And I was within my calories too...yippee!

    I'll join you!!

    I know that morning hungover feeling that comes form eating too much of all the wrong things the night before. You just want to kick yourself for being so stupid. Don't know why it is so hard sometimes.

    You sound iike you're on track.

    Repeat after me: No wheat today/. No wheat today/ no wheat today.
