Leapt off the Wagon
Wednesday, January 23, 2013
Yesterday was a really stressful day at work after the tough weekend. I found myself craving carbs all day long. Maybe my body needed some energy? Or maybe I just wanted a distraction from the task on hand. Well, whatever the reason, I managed to eat reasonably at work.
Of course I had to stop at the grocery store on my way home, since I worked all weekend. Walking up and down the aisles, I had a little argument going on. I wanted it ALL!!!! But I also wanted to see a loss on the scale.
So, beside the milk and frozen vegetables, I finally ended up getting a frozen "white" pizza for supper. Enjoyed every bite! Scale said up 0.2, but it was worth it.
A year ago I might have also gotten cookies or something decadent for desert.
Even with the slight gain, I gained in positive thoughts and learning.
I count the day as a success.
I remind myself that this is not a crash diet. This is a slow and gentle lifestyle change.
