Days 3 and 4

Saturday, June 22, 2013

Day 3 went well...had a really good day but the eating wasn't great. Skipped lunch (too much work) and had 2 glasses of wine emoticon . On the plus side, even with the cheat, I managed to keep my calorie intake on track and didn't compromise too much on the nutritional value.

Day 4 - today is tough. The cravings have hit with a vengeance today. Haven't given in to any of them - so far.

Day is over and I am pleased to say that I didn't give in to any of my cravings. emoticon Went over my desired calorie intake, but on the plus side I only ate good quality foods (fruit, veg and wholegrains) so I'm not beating myself up about it.

I just learned how many empty calories are in honey. I have been using it quite freely and often unnecessarily but that has got to change. I feel a bit like a birdwatcher - having to be honest about my intake even though no one will ever audit my tracking. As good as it feels to have nice numbers though, I know I'd only be lying to myself.

    @Loving Africa Thanks for the support emoticon . I'm not sure whether my tracker is public or private - its whatever the default setting is. I think I should make it public to make myself more accountable :)

    The wine was from frustration at something that was annoying me. Fortunately I'm not a big drinker generally so even when not watching what I eat, I would be unlikely to have more than 2 glasses of wine with any kind of frequency.

    The cravings have not been bad to be honest. Might be cos I'm not depriving myself of any major food groups and when I crave pastries and biscuits (my weaknesses) I have sweet potato or butternut as my carb for lunch or dinner. Really helps.

    @WALLINMW Thanks

    After I drink wine I always have cravings the next day.
    Is your nutrition tracker public or private. (You would be surprised how many people peep at what others have been eating)
    Just keep tracking, it is the best thing you can do on Sparks.
    At two weeks you will have nailed most of the cravings, would have lost some weight and would have a lot of momentum.
    Just keep being consistent!
    Have a great day Spark Friend!
