Well, we all indulged!
This is how I got back on the wagon:
- Last night I threw out all candy that the boys didn't eat. I actually tossed it into the dirty garbage can in the garage. I've never thrown sugar away before. It is empowering. (They aren't much for candy - so I tossed quite a bit. I bought the same amount as last year - so guess who ate all the candy last year?)
- Drank 2 large glasses of water before bed.
- Ate a large spinach smoothie first thing this morning.
- Went on a long walk.
- Ate a huge salad and pita and hummus for lunch and ate until I was stuffed.
I am so thrilled! This is a big step. I think I can really do this the rest of my life. Maybe have a little "unhealthy" food now and then - if I really want it. But what I really want is wholesome nutrient rich food.
Michelle, my running coach (it makes me feel snotty to say that), asked me what I do when I crave junk. I told her I eat an orange or some raisins. But really, the answer is, I don't actually crave junk anymore.
