Today was surprisingly ok.
D and I went running this morning and my muscles and joints protested more than usual, but I didn’t feel like a slug quite so much.
Foodwise, it’s been better. I started the day out with scrambled eggs again, with a bit of bacon mixed in. That lasted me until 11am, when I had a couple of handfuls of popcorn. By 11:50am I wanted my lunch – leftovers from last night’s meal. It wasn’t a big lunch, so I wasn’t surprised to find myself going to buy a sandwich at 2:30pm.
I had a plum at 4pm. D is making us a frittata for dinner as we speak.
I’ve had a slight headache that has come and gone throughout the day.
But it’s a massive improvement on yesterday and Tuesday’s Oh-my-God-I-am-so-hungry-I-could-eat-a-horse-and-a-cow.
I just want to get to that stage where you don’t overeat, and you don’t crave sweet things. So far I haven’t craved sweet things that badly, but where I work, temptation is never far away. I work in a social service agency that provides food. Tasty, sugary treats are often at hand if you want them. Today, for instance, someone brought in some cupcakes – you know, the ones that have more icing than actual cupcake. I thought ‘Yum!’ And then I remembered, I don’t eat that any more.
I think I will just have to have ‘I am not eating poison anymore’ as my mantra. And repeat it, oh about a bazillion times.
