The Munchies

Saturday, May 25, 2013

I have the munchies. The salt, chocolate, crunchy, good-for-nothing munchies. There's no reason, no trigger. I just really want to eat. Like really, really want to eat.

So I'm blogging.

I had a well-rounded breakfast. I think. I was actually quite proud of how it came together and was delicious. It was my first "creative" omelet - 2 large eggs, some veggie sausage, diced up peppers, and goat cheese. Lunch was appropriate too - an avocado and turkey burger sandwich with a side of "smart fries". Granted my "snack" wasn't stellar, but that's because the munchies started to kick in. I had a sugar free vanilla pudding. It hit the spot for the time being.

I've been drinking water all day. Brushed my teeth twice already. And I just took a shower. Don't think I'm crazy; I actually needed to do those things before my husband and I go out tonight. But I was hoping they'd take my mind off snacking.

Technically I have room in my daily range today, but I haven't had dinner yet. We're going out and so I like to cushion a few more calories for the unmeasurable dining that is eating out. It makes the actual eating out less stressful.

So here I am sipping seltzer and blogging. And while I am no longer thinking about the munchies themselves, I think I will have some carrots. They're an easy, healthy, crunchy snack that can't do any damage in moderation. I think.

I realize this isn't an awesome blog, but it is a tool. And that's what I like about SP.

    Go you! Way to stave off those munchies! Atta girl! This is a really great idea to blog through your desire to eat. I'll have to try that myself soon.

    Great job using your strategies! I find that sugar free stuff just makes me hungrier. Keep up the good job!

    It sounds like you are doing really good. I read a book that said to write down your cravings and tell yourself that you'll have it later and not eat it. I haven't been so good at that one, but I think you are doing good blogging about it. emoticon
