Day 331 : So, how'd that candy jar treat you?
Thursday, May 16, 2013
I really do hate the lack of self control I have when it comes to sweet things. I mean, I look at it and it's -there- and I can't not eat it.
This, friends, is why I can't bring Skinny Cow products, more than one cup if ice cream, candy, or 'treats' of any kind into my home in any quantity beyond one.
We talked at the group meeting this week about hunger vs. cravings and I'm still thinking about it. About not eating just because I look at the clock and it's 'time.' Or, how about not taking a piece of candy from the damned jar just because I walked past it? Ugh. Frustrating. I just need to think of a better question than 'are you hungry?' because clearly that question isn't enough to keep me from eating.
I just need to focus. I need to plan like I used to.
Alright, I'm done whining.
It's been just about two weeks since the Half and I haven't run at all. I want to be sure my hips and knee are back in order. After my hips felt sore just during a walk yesterday I'm willing to wait. So, I made BFFs with my foam roller and urged them to settle down.
Plan for today is a nice walk over lunch. I already had breakfast, three mini tootsie rolls, and I'm thinking about the can of soup I packed. I'm just going to try and refocus on the beautiful weather and the nice long walk I'm going to take.
It's alllll about the focus, people!
