“If I only had Doritos, everything would be ok.” – Victoria
Yes, I said that. The fact that I think Doritos are the answer to all my problems is rather disturbing, isn’t it?
I was in fact craving Doritos, but I did not succumb to my cravings. It’s starting to get easier to make good choices, but obviously I’m still thinking about eating la junk food. Temptation is everywhere! Remember yesterday when I mentioned not grocery shopping while hungry? I would add looking at Pinterest while you’re hungry. Not a good idea. At all. So many pictures of gooey chocolate treats and deliciously-rich pasta dishes. I can feel my blood sugar spike just looking at them.
I had another good eating day yesterday and honestly I’m pretty impressed with myself. Like I said it’s starting to get easier. Keeping the refrigerator full of healthy food choices has made it easier to eat the right things. I bought some steel cut oats last week so I’m going to give those a try. My friend Kim told me about how she makes her oatmeal—cinnamon, vanilla, and some frozen berries—so I’m excited to give it a try. I’m not a huge fan of oatmeal, but I know it’s good for me so I’ll give it another shot.
Next week is going to be interesting. I am having lunch with a friend on Monday and I’ll be in the office a couple of days next week as well (I work in the office part-time and work from home part-time). It’s going to mean some planning on my part. When I don’t plan I get into trouble. Especially if I don’t bring my lunch to work. I wander over to the food court and lose all sense of reason. Cheeseburgers, pizza, dim sum, bagels and cream cheese…I have no chance. So it’s better if I just stay away for now. The friend I’m having lunch with on Monday is well aware of my efforts so I know he’ll steer me in the direction of a restaurant where I can find a healthy option.
Here’s looking forward to a successful Day 4!
