Overcoming the hungry time
Friday, December 28, 2012
OK.. well I am not going over.... but MAN I have been hungry all night!
My solution was first berries.
Now I am going to scramble egg beaters. This will put me over sodium goal.. but will keep me low on calories and the protein will HOPEFULLY make me feel more satisfied.... at least until bed.
I don't LIKE hungry days. I think this is PMS plus going back on a calorie restricted diet. Yesterday was easy. Today.... a challenge.
But I am UP FOR THE CHALLENGE.
I did slip earlier and have a peanut butter cocoa cookie... but I counted it in my calorie count and kept going. I have eaten a lot of freggies. A lot of lean protein. Good servings of low fat dairy. And even when I slipped on the sweets at church I chose ONE cookie and made it one with protein in it and whole oats... and then got RIGHT back on track instead of using it as an excuse to just give up.
Hungry days are TOUGH. But if I am going to do this I have to be TOUGHER. And I CAN. I can do this. I have done it before... and I WILL do it again NOW.
Sparkcoach said I need to not be my worst critic but my own cheerleader. After years of cheering on others.. it is time to do that for me. So instead of getting down on myself for my slip I rejoice in my victories.
I DID STAY IN RANGE (bottom half even)
I SURVIVED A HUNGRY DAY....
AND I WILL DO THIS!
