45 days until 2013

Friday, November 16, 2012

Ugh!!!! I totally went over my calories yesterday and failed at a challenge I set for myself! I ate candy :(

I don't know what happens, but this isn't the first time. I actually wake up about an hour to an hour and a half after I fell asleep and SERIOUSLY CRAVE something sweet and go hammer some candy or treat of some sort into my mouth. Does this happen to anybody else? I can't seem to understand it. One minute I am happily sleeping and the next I have an uncontrollable urge to eat.

The good news is, even though I blew my calorie range, I still managed to have a (very small) calorie deficit for the day. Thank goodness I did cardio yesterday!

The other good news is that today is a brand new start AND the scale was kind to me this morning. It has said the same number for seemingly for forever and today it dropped 3 numbers. I'll wait until weigh in day to see if it is real, but it was perfect timing to encourage me to keep going after yesterday's failures.

    Is there any way you could NOT have the stuff in your house? I know I have to keep it out of reach when I'm going through a particularly "crave-y" time. I also know my kids and DH want treats sometimes, but we've really been trying to not have "junk" in the house on a regular basis anymore. Myabe sometimes for special occassions, but that's mostly it.
Anyway, you did good by getting your exercise and it's only 1 day. Today IS a new day. Enjoy your way to good health!

    I hope mine scale drops 3 numbers or more when I weigh in on Tuesday. I have really been working hard.
