It seems this tangible urge sneaks up on me and grabs ahold of me right before dinner time, and if I fight it off then, it comes back with a vengence right before bed....
the urge? it is a strong one for a soda and chocolate! It sounds silly right now, only because I don't want one right now... but I do feel pretty happy to have outwitted it for the day.
I figured it was stress and hunger trying to get me to get a quick pick me up fix.. so the night before I promised myself that as soon as Jim came home I would take some calcium, magnesium and potassium.... (cravings for chocolate are linked to low magnesium, and calcium & potassium are to replace what stress has stolen) I took the suppliments as well as had a peice of fruit and one of my lemon/agave drinks.... and then I drove off to by some hay for the horses....
honestly, I wasn't sure if I was going to be able to drive past the little red store on the way to the hay guy and back... and a part of me REALLLY wanted to put the brakes on and go to that vending machine... though I averted my eyes and drove on home!!!
AND I made it.... whew.... not saying i'm not EVER going to have that snack.... but I was getting pretty tired of giving into it, so I battled it out and WON! :D yea me!
OH, and by the way, had a great time riding my horse tonight too.... only 94.5 more hours until we hit the goal of 500 logged hours.... I know that we already have 2x that or more... but it was from before I started this FRP logg and, there were stretches of time I didn't log... so it's no big wooop.... just a little thing I can do with him, it motivates me to saddle up on days when I might not otherwise
I mean after all, we will get a soft sides coooler & his pic on the website
