So I'm back in track today after a very sugar filled and junk foody weekend. I'm just barely over my calories, I started focusing on getting 2 servings of fruit/veggies with each meal, I made a healthy dinner with whole grains and greens and even had a glass of wine. Now I'm sitting here watching House of Cards and all I can think of is I WANT MORE FOOD!! I can't stop thinking about the leftover chicken and how bad I want to go T-Rex on it and just EAT IT ALL!! I know mentally and physically that I don't NEED more food... But my mouth wants to unhinge my jaw like a snake and devour Korean BBQ baked chicken thighs until I am lolling on the couch like Jabba the Hut.
I'm thinking mint tea and will power... Maybe a popsicle. 50 calories of frozen pineapple sugar water might be worth not binging further. I'm not a big fan of willpower... I find that the harder you white knuckle on saying "no" to everything the harder you fall when you finally lose your grip. But I also don't want to justify snarfing all the food just to satisfy my irrational stomach brain.
