The weekend was rough. I am finally over it though and back to eating well. Today I had some good moments. So I decided last week that I was ready to stop drinking any diet soda again (even if it was just one, once in a while). It is a trigger for me as well as microwave popcorn. I stopped at the market this morning for work and went to the popcorn isle. My intent was to get it for my boss but I stopped myself. I knew that if I purchased it that I would just eat it so I got him pretzels which do not tempt me. Then this afternoon, I was STRESSED in every sense of the word. I walked to the break room and reached in the fridge for a cherry coke zero. I stopped myself and put it back. I knew that I was just reaching for it for an unnatural high and once I was finished with it, I knew it would make me eat. I drank another glass of water instead. I ended up having around 120 ounces of water today but I'm okay with it. I only ate 1300 calories total. And I was on my feet all day. It was a very busy clinic day and I was swamped. I am so happy that tomorrow is Wednesday. The work week is almost over! emoticon
