Today's Victory!

Tuesday, May 21, 2013

OK... Since on Tuesdays I go to Zumba early in the morning... and I don't work on Tuesdays... I have a long day to get a lot done! Usually I do laundry, get the house in order, and do my Costco shopping. That's the Tuesday plan.
BUT: Frankly, it doesn't take that long... and usually by 3:00 I am not only done with my errands, but I am really hungry! (That Tuesday morning Zumba is KILLER!)
So, as you may have deduced by now, Tuesday afternoons can often be my undoing.
I had my lunch... a large one at that (for me - I eat every 3 hours minimum, so a large lunch is anything over 325 calories or so) and then I felt those munchies coming. It really was from my stomach. My body wanted food! But I knew I had just eaten... I had actually already eaten breakfast, a late morning snack, and said lunch... so my body did NOT need the food it was asking for.
Did I need to go to the supermarket? Did I need to go to Annie Sez? No... but I created those errands for myself to get me out of the house and away from the food!!!
It worked!
I am now home.
Dinner is in the oven (chicken thighs and I am making a salad and cooking some fresh corn on the cob.... whose blog was that where they were talking about fresh corn? well it got me thinking I needed some!!!)
I just had an apple and 2 pieces of 2% string cheese.
I feel SO good!!!!!
