Day 13 learning from failure

Friday, November 14, 2014

Well, my evening did not go as planned yesterday, I was thinking I'd give the "no snacking" a 2 day in a row try, but then I found myself alone (Larry went out to a function) and after a lightish dinner, I was still wanting more....so more I had! After demolishing the almost empty bags of popcorn, I dipped into the chocolate covered almonds. Put them away, but still wanted more....so I went back for more! I suppose one good thing about this low-FODMAP plan I'm on is there is not a lot of snack food in the house right now that I can eat! And I didn't want to open anything else, so I stopped there. Not feeling full or stuffed, so I suppose that's good. But that "out of control" feeling was there a little, and that's what I'd like to avoid. So I went and grabbed the floss, that helps me not want to snack, when my teeth feel clean I don't want to dirty them up again!

So I have to remember next time to A) floss/brush my teeth right after dinner. B) pick up the knitting I haven't touched in months. C) brew up a cup of hot mint tea. (maybe I can switch A for C, but the tea doesn't make my mouth feel "dirty" if you know what I mean.

So as far as the day went, I had my training with Iain, and I'm feeling it today, mostly in my triceps and shoulders, we did ring push-ups with skull-crushers and dumbell chest press on the floor (touched the floor with the weights on the skull crushers, this was HARD!) I could handle the 10's fairly well, although I was feeling in when I got to number 20. The 12's I struggled to finiish the set (I think I stopped at 15?) and the 15's I could barely eke out 5! No wonder I'm feeling my triceps!

Walking to work today, it's windy, and I'm guessing it's going to be cold, but I don't think it's going to rain. And I'm only working a half day, so should be good!

    Gee, it's so hard to ignore the call of those foods. Congrats on not opening any other treats and making a plan! emoticon
