Activity – spin class 55 mins
Was really hungry last night – I don’t know if it was the weather (so cold) or physiological because it was my first day back on track , whatever it was by the end of the day (after dinner ) I was hungry. I had 2 snacks, some cashews and a hot chocolate made with mexican drinking chocolate and skim milk, which did fill the gap for some time. I also decided to distract myself a little my re-organising my home office/retreat room, which kept me busy and kept my mind off food. This is great for those times when I am looking to food because I am looking for something to fill my time, not because I am hungry. I am definitely trying to stop this habit of mindless eating, so really happy that this worked.
I am hoping that by returning to work next week, that things will become easier on this front , as I will be busy busy – so no time for “the filling of time” eating. But there will be other challenges as I will now need to try to plan healthy, low in WW points meals within a shorter time frame. I know this will be a challenge, but is very do-able, I will just need to think ahead, planning shopping lists and meals in advance, so that I do not fall back on high carb and high WW point foods.
I am so so so happy to be returning to work and I know that i will be happy to rise to the food challenge as this is a change of lifestyle for me. I am losing the weight this time FOREVER – I do not want to see it return, this time I WANT IT TO STICK!
happy Tuesday to you all, 🙂
