First Two Days Of The Food Challenge

Here are the first two days broken down by meal. I have to say that I am eating really well throughout the day and then something happens to me at night. This ice cream beast has taken over my body the last couple of days. I can't seem to stop thinking about it and ice cream isn't even my favorite dessert. I usually go for any sort of sweet bread product. So I am hoping to break the vicious cycle tonight. I have plenty of fruits to eat should the sugar beast arise and I am praying that my will is strong enough to override the craving.

My plan is to go to the gym tonight after I do a bunch of work at the office. So maybe I can workout through the craving. I didn't go to the gym the other day like I was supposed to so when I go tonight the scale and I will have a little chat. Maybe the number that appears will get my but in gear. Nothing like positive reinforcement. ;)

I think food habits are the hardest thing to change, particularly when it requires cooking for yourself. When you're tired or feeling down, that's the hardest time to energize yourself to cook and well it seems. I'm rooting for you!

oh my goodness, Heather I hear you! When I am tired and just in from work - I eat the tiles off the floor. I always need to plan and I have a fave saying, which I need to remember daily.

"If you fail to Plan, then you plan to fail"
