So after a couple of weeks of trying to eat nothing but “whole, real” food, and doing such a good job, I’m struggling the last couple of days. I’ve been having some cravings. I’m guessing it’s because I had a couple of things over the weekend that did not fit into the real food category, namely Dominoes Pizza and the chocolate St. Patty’s day cookies that Stephanie made. And although I only had a little bit of each, from everything I’ve read, the sugar addiction starts all over again. geeeeeze….
I also have not planned what I’m going to eat in my day. I’ve just been kinda winging it. I think this contributes to binge eating and grabbing things you know you shouldn’t be eating. I’m thinking maybe I should make a master list to hang inside a cabinet door with items/suggestions for breakfast foods, lunch foods, dinner foods and snack foods. That way I can make sure these things are readily available in my kitchen and I’ll know at a glance what things are good for me to eat.
I’m not really worried. I wasn’t so blind as to think that giving up processed food and sugar would be easy. I figure there’s bound to be set backs along the journey. I am determined to feed my body healthier food and in turn hope to feel better, have more energy and lose weight. It’s only been a couple of weeks. Overall I think I’ve done a really good job. I just need to keep it going!
On that note, I think I’ll go eat an apple. I think there’s a crisp, unbruised one in the fruit drawer of my fridge. =>
