A night off, but I am within calories and I didn't let the cheez-its win

Thursday, January 03, 2013

Last night I let the cheez its take control... they are my favorite cracker of snacky goodness and I way over indulged last night. That and the salted caramel turtles... oh it was so good, and sooo bad.

Today I worked hard to stay in calorie range. I DID NOT eat the chocolate cake that someone brought to work. I did have one small bar of dark chocolate and two turtles after work, but otherwise ate fruits, vegetables, cheese, and plenty of good stuff. We went out to eat and I had catfish, carrots & broccoli. and a small treat of some onion rings.

I have been working out hard for the last few days, so I am taking the night off, to start afresh in the next few days.

The saga of the new treadmill continues... they ordered one part and had a guy come out, but it wasn't correct... so they sent out another part, but the incline still won't work. So yet another 2 parts are on order... meh. At least I can still run flat.

Getting my evening snacking in hand has been a real bugbear for me for the last while. I don't know why. I am eating no matter whether I am hungry or not. I think this has been the biggest culprit in my weight creep. I know that I have to get myself in hand. I am just trying to figure out the best way to do this. I think my main thing will be to keep a nice glass of water near my chair and just keep knitting.

    Knit away and sip away my friend!!
    It's time to break the habit for good now! And you can do it!
    Oprah once said that she tries not to eat after 7pm...and somehow that made sense to me and I have lived that way for a very very long time - even before Spark - so the nighttimes snacky thing never got a hold of me that bad.

    Good luck my friend!! You can do it!!!!!!! emoticon

    I personally like to go with something with a flavor by the time evening rolls around. If I HAVE to drink water to get to my minimum, I will. But I much prefer hot and flavorful at this time of year. Green tea is my usual, sometimes hot low-sodium V-8 with a dash of bitters. Or for a real splurge, sugar-free hot chocolate made with NF milk instead of water, or a cup of bouillon.

    And, yes, keeping my hands busy with knitting or my SparkTime helps a lot too.

    Sorry to hear the treadmill is still giving you fits!
