I've been on an ice cream kick.
I'm still eating my planned healthy foods but I've also been eating ice cream, brownies, and I had a cupcake. I've also been eating lots of extra nuts. All was worth the calories except the cupcake.
I've been journaling and reflecting about why and what to do about it.
(And my diet is balanced with 10-14 servings of veggies, more than enough fiber, lean protein and healthy fats and more - the issue isn't that I'm not eating enough for my needs, nor is it that I'm not eating enough healthy stuff, etc.)
I think some of the issue come from being so close to goal - I don't feel the same urgency to stay on track. I know this can quickly spiral out of control and I am very concerned about that but that's not enough to hold me to my goal. I have ideas about this and will come back to it later.
For now tomorrow's goal is to eat as planned and to eat extra fruits, veggies and healthy protein even if it pushes me over my calories. I have to rid myself of this sugar-monster now!
Look back -
While looking at a journal from the very first days of Sparking, I found some brainstorming type notes.
"mini goals -
size 16 and XL
avoid medications for controllable health conditions"
At that time there's no way anyone could have convinced me that I would comfortably fit sizes 8-10 and M. And here's to being healthy and with no need for medications
