I'm trying to hang on here. I do pretty good for a couple of days and then have a bad day. Today has been pretty good.
I'm really struggling with the headaches and that makes me want to comfort myself with food. I went to a concert with my boss and a coworker the other night and my coworker took a picture of me. Yuck. I looked at that picture when I was tempted today. Here's how the day has gone.
I really wanted to get back on track today. I had a couple of Atkins shakes left from sometime in the past and I decided I would use those instead of MF shakes, since I like them much better (don't like them, but they are much better than the MF ones). I had one of those for breakfast and a MF snack bar for midmorning snack. I now have 3 candy bowls close to me at work and I slipped up and had 2 chocolates from a candy bowl. That's when I started using the picture for motivation. So I had a shake for lunch, along with 2 cuties oranges. I was struggling mid-afternoon, so went ahead and had my snack bar. That candy bowl kept tempting me, but I managed to stay away from it. By late afternoon I was pretty hungry. I decided it would be better to have another MF snack bar than to give in, so did that. I did not have anything ready to cook for dinner and didn't want to get home and mess up, so I stopped at Subway and got a sandwich and some baked chips. I think that was much better than things I might have gotten into at home. Since I had 2 snack bars this afternoon, no evening snack tonight. I do plan to have a piece of fruit, if I need to. So, not a perfect MF day, by any means, but much better. I can lose weight on what I ate today (albeit slowly). It always helps to get a positive day behind me. I will see if I can do even better tomorrow.
I did not do a good job with grocery shopping this week. I thought I had chicken left, but I guess I didn't. I need to get some more. I will look through my freezer and see if I've got other things for tomorrow. I do not have a car available to go get anything tonight. If I don't, I will pick up something at a restaurant downstairs tomorrow before they close after lunch. I need to be prepared for success in my current state of motivation.
That's it for tonight. Just trying to hold it together.
