Yesterday I woke up feeling great. Truly, I had amazing energy and felt like the world was my oyster.
That's all - nothing exciting happened -- I just wanted to share because I LOVE days like those. Where everything just seems to go your way even if it doesn't.
Anyway, I recently divulged my over-indulgences and I stand here now needing to make a correction.
They did have an affect on me. Last night for dinner I ordered Pad Thai. And as I was eating it, I had a revelation:
"SON OF A GUN!!! This is a carb craving"
Didn't even see it coming til I was almost done.
So yes, my little jaunt over the weekend DID have an affect on me. When I got home from work it didn't occur to me that I was overly thinking about eating pad thai or anything. I had had a wonderful day of eating and somehow in a single thought I convinced myself that I would eat it and be ok and blah blah blah. Truly I performed some excellent jedi mind tricks on myself. Very crafty I have become.
Anyway, now that I've indentified it I'm not so sure what to do now. I don't know if I'm supposed to go back to phase 1 or not. Hopefully I'm not because I really don't want to do it again - maybe just a day or two. So today I'm going to peruse my resources and get some advice from people who've "been there done that".
Also, today is Wednesday - so that means it's WI: +1.4 lbs
Yeah, that's a big jump but I was expecting that due to certain choices I made that I am going to forgive myself for and move on ;)
week 1: +1
week 2: +1.4
I'm not too worried about the gain because week 2 for me was *head bowed in shame* not the best for me. No worries though, I will come up with a plan and turn it around.
In food news, I made a dish that I'm very pleased with.
It's kidney beans, garbanzo beans, pinto beans, onions, carrots, and red peppers with all sorts of chili seasonings. I just mixed it all together and let it simmer for a couple of hours. Very filling and tasty.
B: banana w/ PB
L: chili w/ 1T shredded Portuguese cheese
S: yellow pepper strips, plum tomatoes, carrot strips w/ hummus
D: pad thai :(
Today starts week 3 for mean and technically I am to add a grain today (yippee!) but before I officially do that I'm going to go see what I can find out about my carb cravings.
