Going Cold Turkey
Tuesday, August 21, 2007
Ok, I started over AGAIN yesterday, and as much as it sucks, I am pretty much having to accept the fact that the only way I seem able to do this, is if I cut unhealthy food completely out of my diet, and also No fast food, or soda!
I did pretty well yesterday, in fact, it was so hot in my office due to trying to dry out from last Friday's flood, that I wasn't hungry at all. By the end of the day, I think I ended up with 865 calories.
My biggest challenge was when Matt brought Chocolate Cake back from his Mom's house and asked me if I wanted some.
For about 5 minutes I just stared at him, while I argued with myself in my brain. On the one hand, I was way low calories, and if there was any day that I could afford the choc. cake it was then, but on the other hand, It was only my first day on my no junk food, no soda plan!
Finally I said "There will always be choclolate cake, and I need to learn how to say "no" to it." Later, I had gone into the kitchen to get something, and I saw the cake sitting on the counter. I picked it up and carried it into the computer and put it on Matt's desk and said "I really think this needs to be supervised"
So I managed to make it through the night eating no junk food!
But actually my hardest part is usually the afternoon at work, this tend to quiet down in the afternoon, and because there is all sorts of junk in the breakroom, It's when I usually tend to give in, and grab a soda and some chocolate.
