I have always craved red meat a couple of days before TTOTM...sometimes I swear that if a cow walked past me (unlikely on the city streets) I'd throw a rope round it's neck, drag it home and stick it on a spit in my back yard and have a 3-day feast. The strange thing is I don't really like red meat that much and don't eat a lot of it at any other time. I guess it's my body telling me I need to replenish my iron
The other thing I crave at this time is carbs. Even if my memory was erased and there were no calendars available I would know that TTOM is about 2 days away 'cos I would start dreaming about pasta. Seriously. I've no idea what lesson my body is trying to teach me with this one.
So today hasn't been such a good day food-wise...I've overdone it on the calories due to a higher than usual carb consumption...but at least I've made healthier choices than I would have in the past. Before making this decision to lose weight in a sensible way I would have had a day or three of meat pies, spaghetti carbonara and whoppers with cheese. Now it's rice crackers, grilled low fat chevapcici and similar kinds of things. More of both than I should have but I'm pleased that I'm learning to make better choices...I'll work on controlling the portions once I'm confident I'm not going to completely blow out on greasy, fatty stuff.
I hate TTOTM
