The Cravings have hit bad this week..... my bodys been screaming for some form of alcohol and takeaway food! i hate the feeling, it makes me feel like a caged animal, i start pacing up and down and argue with myself, my thoughts totally comsumed.
On Tuesday i gave in.
i made pizza for my kids and ate half of one, my mind took this as permission that all bets were off and i wanted some beer and fish and chip so badly!
i got in my car and drove to the shops but on the way there some thing strange happened. i decided not to drink! in the fish and chip shop i changed what i normally had (large fish, large chips and a battered sausage) to a regular fish and chips which although i know is not great its is a big improvement on what my mind was telling me to buy! so tues wasnt great but also wasnt as bad as it could of been.
On Sat i took my girls to a dog show, determined to keep up the good work i packed us up a picnic. the weather was great (about time) and we had a great time watching the displays and all the dogs and i felt a mini victory every time i walked past a fast food van! we all enjoyed the picnic and i noticed i felt alot fitter while rolling around on the floor playing silly games with my girls, so i must be doing something right!
The only trouble with the sunshine comeing out is the urge to go sit in a beer gardern and drink beer. dispite this and knowing i was nearly walking into temptation i went to see a friend at the pub. i am pleased to report i didnt give in and only had a diet coke.....my mate couldnt belive it!
So Sunday weigh in is here again and after a week where i have struggled at times, i get on the scales and.......lost 2lbs.
initally i was abit disappointed having lost 18lbs in my first to weeks but the more i thought about it i realised that if i had given into all the serious cravings ive had this week i could of easily put on 5lbs!
So ive decided that going forward that any loss no matter how small is a victory and should be celebrated!
Have a good week everyone
