Sometimes giving in is the right thing to do

Thursday, February 21, 2013

Yesterday afternoon I was hungry. Very hungry. Unfortunately a snack really wasn't in the plan. But I had one anyway. I'm not sure why I always seem to get hungrier the day before a WI - one of life's little mysteries, I guess.

I grabbed a couple of PB pretzels - literally - fully intending to track them. I realized they wten't going to do the trick. And no, I didn't want to be virtuous & have yogurt or fruit or something. I realized I wanted a home made vitamuffin (recipe courtesy of chocolatecoveredk

So that's what I had. And that did the trick.

Sometimes it's better to have what you really want rather than eat all around it trying to be "good".

The trick is knowing when something like that will satisfy you - and when it will trigger more eating. Which isn't always easy to decide.

Of course, this would've been a GREAT story if I'd lost weight this week.

But it's still a good story. It was the right next step for me yesterday.

Now I need to vent just a tad about the weather . . . I don't remember moving to the windy city, yet we've had winds no less than 15 mph & often 20+ mph since last Sunday & it's really getting on my nerves. I haven't been able to walk the dogs on several days due to tbe cold.

Tomorrow is SUPPOSED to be nicer . . . then another winter storm is supposed to bear down on us. I'm literally tired due to a week of poor sleep (hormones again, probably) and I'm really tired of winter, too. It hasn't really been that bad . . . but it feels like it has!

It's been difficult to come up with things I'm grateful for lately, even tho I know there are plenty of things to be grateful about. I had one of THOSE mornings this morning & I had a meltdown with the poor dogs when they wouldn't do anything before I left; not my finest hour by far. Sometimes you know you're being utterly ridiculous & you just can't help it (which is a cop-out - of course you don't have to act that way!).

Don't mind me; I'm just a overly tired winter grump.

    True....if I try to eat around it trying to be good, I end up eating much more than needed.
    Wow...that is windy!! I hope it dies down. And you can get some sleep.

It's OK sometime you just have to rant and let off a little steam and then you feel better.... sounds like the muffin helped too. LOL! Don't worry spring is just around the corner emoticon
