But.... I'm hungry

Tuesday, February 18, 2014

So I'm back in track today after a very sugar filled and junk foody weekend. I'm just barely over my calories, I started focusing on getting 2 servings of fruit/veggies with each meal, I made a healthy dinner with whole grains and greens and even had a glass of wine. Now I'm sitting here watching House of Cards and all I can think of is I WANT MORE FOOD!! I can't stop thinking about the leftover chicken and how bad I want to go T-Rex on it and just EAT IT ALL!! I know mentally and physically that I don't NEED more food... But my mouth wants to unhinge my jaw like a snake and devour Korean BBQ baked chicken thighs until I am lolling on the couch like Jabba the Hut.

I'm thinking mint tea and will power... Maybe a popsicle. 50 calories of frozen pineapple sugar water might be worth not binging further. I'm not a big fan of willpower... I find that the harder you white knuckle on saying "no" to everything the harder you fall when you finally lose your grip. But I also don't want to justify snarfing all the food just to satisfy my irrational stomach brain.

Any ideas?

    Thanks Charlotte Anne - I did end up having a little bit of a snack, just to satisfy my hunger/craving so I didn't go into today with a martyr complex because I was so "good" last night so it justifies doing whatever I want now! Which I have totally done before. But I loved my dessert so I went to bed feeling good and woke up not feeling like I had gone to bed grumpy or deprived.

    My favorite evening snack - cut up an apple (I have the little lunch box sized galas at home right now), fill a shot glass 2/3 of the way full with caramel syrup topping (just about 2 Tb.), squirt a dollop of whipped cream on top, sprinkle with pumpkin pie spice. Dip the apple in the caramel and whipped cream and be exceedingly happy! Then brush your teeth to get rid of the sugar before bed :-P

    Good for you for recognizing your weaknesses and finding strategies to help overcome your cravings. These are ideas I will keep in mind; I've had those late-night munchies too, and having a hubby with a pizza addition doesn't help.
