Thanksgiving Countdown T-4
Sunday, November 18, 2012
Yesterday was a pretty good day. I really enjoyed the hike in the morning and spent the day shopping with a girlfriend.
Last night I started to get the temptations to mindlessly eat (shopping drains and exhausts me so). I ate half of an oatmeal chocolate chip cookie. Thank God that was all that was left, because I don't think I could have stopped at that. I found some Arctic Zero ice cream at the Health Food Store, so I had some of that and that helped. Before I went to bed I ended up munching on some stuff in the kitchen but I went to bed before it got out of hand.
Today I'm going to be guarded against the desire to binge!
I'm anticipating some challenges today. I'm going to start the day off running/hiking at the trail (which is good) but then I'll be going to lunch with a friend who likes to eat higher calorie stuff. Then I've been dwelling on these chips that I used to binge on. Mike Sells Zesty BBQ Potato Chips- they're an Ohio thing so I don't have them in TX. But they're a major trigger food for me... and I remember binging on them from the time I was a child until the time I moved to TX. I'm trying desperately to STAY AWAY from those things!!
Anyway, my major challenge today is just a dangerous mindset. I don't know if I'm tired or what.
Highlights: This dress fit perfectly
I did not end up purchasing it because it wasn't on sale like I thought it was. But it makes me really excited to know that I COULD have purchased it!
Lowlights: I miss my husband.
