So started with good intentions. Then I made cakes with the kids and I ate the left over cake mix plus 3 cakes. I knew it would put me in danger of going over but I was in a "stuff it" mood due to illness, being tired due to children's illnesses, work pressure and emotional stress. Just now I made the conscious decision to eat half a chocolate egg - just wanted comfort. The thing is it just made me feel sick. I'm writing this post so it's on my profile to remind me that things have changed and food is not the way for me to seek comfort. I've already made the decision to stick with the calorie count for rest of week and restart plan with all print outs this time - I think logging my five a day and exercise was a real motivator for leading a healthier lifestyle. Another two things I've learnt over past three weeks is that 1) hot choc is the way to go when I've got choc munchies as it sates the craving with less calories whilst providing hydration and 2) I need to keep my snacks during the day to a minimum as I know I love snacking in the evening and by keeping a number of calories to one side for later I reduce the chances of going over. Here's to taking one day at a time. Wishing everyone here good luck and good fortune.
