The Munchies...

Friday, July 23, 2010

This hasn't happened in a while. I'm bored and my oral fixation begs to just munch away at something, ANYTHING! I suspect TOM may be at fault as well. As I write this I'm leaning back in my chair with my ungracious bloated belly up in the air. I've been a little out of sorts because I weighed myself this morning and I gained 1.2 pounds over night! I didn't do anything wrong, but again maybe it's TOM doing this to me.

Official weigh in day is tomorrow and as but I have no hopes of all of being where I was last week, let alone losing,. I wanted to go running tonight since it seems that the time has come to add the oomph to my plan (sooner than I expected) but I left my keys at home.

So I had to come from my job in Queens (where I work 8-6) to my boyfriend's job and wait for him to get out of work so we can go home together. I am bored out of my mind. And what happens when I'm bored? I eat.

So as I type this, I'm crunching away on popchips. They're horrible. YUCK! But they're only 100 calories and it's keeping me occupied. I'm also having a diet dr. pepper, the best tasting diet soda out there if you ask me. Dinner was tacos. I'm in rang today, no overages but I have no faith that I will have a loss tomorrow.

Bah. emoticon

    Don't waste calories on something you're not even enjoying!

    I hear you though... Often, I munch on stuff and think to myself, "why am I eating this? I'm not even hungry!" I used to anyway... I try really hard not to anymore. Maybe you should pack some healthy snacks for when the munchies creep up on you, or go for a walk around your boyfriend's building while you're waiting for him? Read a book?

    I too love Diet Dr. Pepper, but have given up soda cold-turkey. Did you know it slows down your digestion and metabolism? Plus, it is just awful for your insides.

    Anyway, hang in there! Don't get discouraged over 1.2 pounds. I weigh myself everyday just because it helps keep me on track, but we're really not supposed to as our weight fluctuates from day to day.

    I know what you mean! I was craving carbs badly the other night, why? TOM and I was just wanting something comforting to relieve my built up stress from the day. I so badly wanted to bust open the cookies and eat them all! They aren't even my favorites either, I just wanted comfort.

    So my hubby so kindly hide the nasty cookie package from me and told me not to do it because I would just be upset in a few minutes when my craving was gone! He knows me too well! So I went & brushed my teeth and drank some water. I left those pesky carb filled, fat packed cookies alone & had no regrets.

    I'm a sweets/carb junky so for me to avoid cookies was huge for me! I avoided eating hundreds of calories!

    Just remember what time it is for you and you'll get past it and feel better in a few days!! Chew some sugar-free gum, see if that helps?
