Have not eaten out since Monday. Feeling pretty good about this, though I do have plans to eat out tomorrow night. It will not be a perfect week for keeping up this streak, BUT...it's our Valentine's Day dinner, so I've decided that the date night connection is more important than not breaking this streak. Plan to eat as well as I can, and do a little extra cardio that day to make up for it.
The eating in bed thing is actually harder to break than I thought. I not only still crave food while in bed, but I now crave the bed while I'm eating, too. :) Not giving up...just making me a little uncomfortable. I "dressed up" my dining room a bit on Wed. (new table cloth, place settings, and some new decorations) in an effort to trick myself into wanting to eat in there. It is cute...but I'm still trying to break the eating in bed habit.
The fake food thing is going a little better. This is one of those tricky ones, because some days, the fake food is a necessity (5 minutes for lunch...and I have to eat something...), but I've done well with it for the last few days. I think the key for this one needs to be moderation, and to truly use the meal replacement bars/drinks as emergency food, and not planned meals.
First "reboot" weigh in tomorrow...and as usual, I'm dreading it. BUT...necessary evil, and I need to learn to suck it up at some point and get over my neurotic relationship with my scale. So adding that to my list of "bads" that I'm currently working on ...stop being a ninny about the scale. I've been working on this my whole life, so I don't see this turning around anytime soon, but maybe it's time to just take the bull by the horns and do it anyway? IDK...but regardless...it's on the list now.
