I have successfully completed my first week of tracking, tracking, tracking, regardless of whether it was good or bad. And it was some of both. Tracking certainly helps give me pause, when I reach for that... thing.
Like, Monday. I've got another sinus infection. When I'm sick, for whatever reason, I crave sweets. I think because it's a very strong flavor and it can penetrate the head fog. Anyway. I wanted a Frosty. I had the opportunity to get a Frosty. I was able to talk myself down, then, to a smaller less calorie intense sweet. Success!
(I've also found that the flavored sparkling water is a real great distraction. I'm talking the kind that is just flavor and water; no sweeteners)
I'm working this week, on being in the lower calorie range. I anticipate pretty good success with this because I know I can do it! Of course, my workouts are suffering a bit, because it's hard to breathe and I'm coughing quite a bit. I'm doing the best I can, so that's as good as it's going to get.
