I hate being female sometimes!!!

Tuesday, March 25, 2008

Oh, the monthly joys of being a female! I have done nothing but crave the things I can usually moderate pretty well. I have just been hungry. It is truly killing me. I took the kids for pizza yesterday and I know that I ate more than I should have there. Why didn't I just stick with the stupid salad bar? That would have been the good thing to so along with having maybe one piece of pizza. I had the 2 pieces of pizza (okay, in all honesty, they were not big pieces), bread sticks, the salad and a bit of soda. I didn't completely gorge myself like I would have in the past, but I didn't do as well as I should have. I have been craving chocolate and pastires like there is no tomorrow. It is killing me!!! I am going to hit the grocery store today and load up on some good things to eat. I am going to make some more of the apple muffins since they are so good, good for you and satisfy the sweet tooth along with getting in some good nutrients. I just need to snap out of it. This has been a bad month for me as far as TOM goes so I am sure that has something to do with it. Not excusing it, mind you, just understanding where ti comes from. Next month, I need to be better prepared with making sure that I don't have an arsenal of crap laying around here that is so easy for me to eat. I am going to also make some more energy bars and trail mix. That should be good for me when the sweet tooth strikes. I can feel like I am eating something without blowing it. I am dreading stepping on the scale on Saturday. I hope it won't be a complete disaster.

On the flip side, I did get to the gym yesterday. I was able to get in a good spinning session. I wasn't going to spin, but I did and I am glad. Today I am off for the elliptical and some weights. I hate doing the weights at the Y sometimes, I guess I feel extrememly self conscious. I don't know why. It doesn't bother me to use the weight equipment, but I don't like to do the free weights. I don't know why I am so self conscious, but I am. Maybe one of these days I will break down and work with someone, but as it stands, I can't justify the expense right now.

I am going to give the ol kitchen a re-haul and clean out the crap and I am going to get some "good stuff" in there. I have got to get off this merry go round and get back on track like there is no tomorrow! Wish me luck!

    4get the scale, don't even worry about it. I think U did fine, better than U think. It's your head & tummy that thinks otherwise. I haven't been able to get to Whole Foods in over a month & I miss it. I've been careful what I bring in (not counting the Easter candy) & it has made it easier to stay on track. I too have craving problems with TOM, especially with sodium, which I'm so careful with (b/c of high BP). Have fun rehauling the kitchen, that always makes 1 feel better. Many hugs, Ruth

Good Luck toyou there are for sure lots of us in your shoes and I know I am having lots of issues right now myself.

    Here's to a successful rehauling of your kitchen. There's certain things I just cannot bring into the house. It's easier to say NO in the grocery store than when it's staring you in the face at home. And you're not alone with the TOM cravings.. I face the same thing myself. Good Luck - I know you can do it!
