The Cravings..... Oh the Cravings.....

Thursday, April 24, 2014

Yesterday was pretty rough. A new doughnut shop opened right across the parking lot from where I work. Everyone went to get them and was talking about it all day. To add to how bad that sucked my boss bought everyone pizza for lunch as a Thank You..... I don't know if I can describe how easy it was for me to turn this stuff down and at the same time how nothing I ate was at all fulfilling all day long!

And turning all that good stuff down is fine and well until I started thinking about all the things I am missing. I WANT A GRILL CHEESE DANG IT!

Its so funny how I can be just fine for 22 days and day 23 it all goes to pot. SOOOO FRUSTRATING!

I mean its not like I ate anything I shouldn't. I stuck to my guns. But I hated everything I put in my mouth because it wasn't what I wanted to eat.

Today is like whatever. I still don't really want anything that I'm eating. But today on the way to work I thought about being out boating this summer and I though ya know what self I want to look good! And its getting me through. Today I understand the idea of wanting skinny more than food. :)

The other thing that has really been weighing on me is how do I keep losing without giving up everything all the time? And I think I know the answer but I'm not really sure how its going to work out.... There is this blog I love to read. Its called "Can you stay for dinner". Darling girl, around my age who lost 100 pounds several years ago and has kept it off. She is darling and so wonderful. Anyway, she has this great thing that shows what calories look like.


And everyday she eats a salad and then like meat and veggies for dinner. And I just thought you know she is moderate and still eats treats, not everyday, but that seems doable. So I think once my 30 days are up (6 days left!) I'm going to make this my goal. Salad for lunch and meat and veggies for dinner.

And you know on the day where there is donuts and pizza I'll pick one or the other and eat my salad.

Oh and since this post just keeps going on and on I might as well add that my goal is to be in "ONE"derland by then end of the summer! I want to be out of the 200# mark by August 31st! Which is 21.5 pounds. I feel like that is so reasonable but also such a challenge. How to keep losing without cutting everything out. #exercise?

So there you have it. Cravings suck! Lifestyle changes are key. And my goal is set.

Best of Luck to you on your journey!

    Yes, those cravings are so hard especially when we can't control them like at work--I hear ya on the work situation/donuts because just yesterday someone brought donuts into the workroom for everyone to enjoy. So tempting especially when it's free!

    I had one, but definitely put it in my spark tracker to keep within my calorie total for the day.
