Im eating them. Its a real struggle but Im eating them
Thanks for checking up on me.
Yesterday I had a bad day. I have somehow twisted my knee, and its school holidays here so Ive got kids home fighting with each other. Stress is definately a trigger for eat to me, I can definately confirm that.
I didnt get breakfast till after 9am as I was trying to get stuff done for the kids which meant didnt finish eating till 9.30am. Couldnt eat again until 2.30pm. Finished lunch 3.00pm. Couldnt eat again until 8.00pm. Might not sound too bad but when your doing the kids lunch at 12.00 and then have to wait 2 more hours for anything its hard. I fed the kids at 5.30pm as they couldnt wait. Cant blame them they are used to fairly early dinner. Anyway that was 2.5hrs till I could eat and I broke the diet then and ate 3 McDonalds cookies. They were the least offensive looking biscuit I had and they are only little, right?
I know people will say should have had fruit but I'm only allowed 2 pieces of fruit a day and I had the compulsary apple with breakfast so the other piece is fruit is free choice, well from a restricted list but you know what I mean, and I'd been craving an orange all day and visualised eating that orange after my dinner. I know that is better than biscuits but I really wanted something that wasnt all natural, something thats just a bit sweet. Old habits die hard huh?
So I cheated. I know its not the end of the world but you start thinking hey I ate my lettuce and good stuff all day then threw it away because I didnt have the will power to just suck back another water and not eat for 5 hours. Its crazy because I can and quite often used to, get up drop kids at school, go to work go all day then eat at 4pm which is 9 hours no food so why cant I possibly go 5 hours. Its probably mind over matter really.
Anyway kids back to school Monday and I'll be back to work and hopefully I can resist temptation to snack in the afternoons.
