Today at the office someone brought in huge batches of homemade apple crisp, poppy seed bread AND seven layer bars. After doing SP for many months, I had gotten to the point where I could just look at that stuff and not even crave it ó it just wasnít in my routine anymore. But this morning I automatically had some. My hand reached out for the sweets as though it had a will of its own and it hasnít done that for a long time. sigh.
As calories go, this is a minor setback, but in terms of mindset it looks like I need to back up a little bit and re-focus my energy.
I went through about 3 weeks recently where I was so stressed out that I actually lost my appetite (a very rare condition for me. lol) During that time, I never had to make any hard choices ó if I was hungry I could eat pretty much whatever I wanted because I never even approached the high end of my calorie target. Without even realizing it I got used to having higher calorie meals and treats whenever. So now that Iím back to my normal appetite I have to ween myself off that stuff. again.
But if I did it once, I can do it again, right?
