Day 7 Low Carb - feelings
Wednesday, June 04, 2014
So, even after the bad weekend, I still reported a loss this week so I'm super happy about that.
I am still feeling super excited about the new low carb plan. Seeing a loss, big or small most days certainly helps... although I do prefer the bigger losses for sure! I need to measure myself with a tape. I want to see how my body changes too.
Any cravings? No, not yet. In the evening I am not even going into the kitchen to scout for food, which is what I used to do. I am eating my fill at dinner and find I don't need anything else. I debated having a little cheese before bed last night but I stopped myself. I had some the night before and it took me a while to get to sleep so I skipped it and found I fell asleep quite quickly.
An end to Mindless Snacking? As I mentioned, I am not opening and closing the fridge or the food cupboards in the kitchen these days trying to satisfy cravings. I am not bringing the snacks I used to bring to work. I used to eat a buckwheat granola square - very delicious, only 90 calories and all natural, but they are pretty high carb so I have cut them out. I also used to bring fruit, that is completely out right now too. Yesterday I had a snack at around 3pm. I had 1oz cheese and an all natural turkey pepperoni stick. Today I've cut the cheese and just have a pepperoni stick. I will see how I feel afterwards. Dinner will be late tonight so hopefully I will manage to last without feeling hungry.
Plan Tasks for today:
* Measure myself.
* Book a blood work appointment (I have the requisition from my doctor already).
* Think about rewards for goals... maybe time specific too, to push me harder. Although hopefully going shopping for new clothes will be reward enough! I can't wait to buy myself nice clothes from shops other than Walmart.
Total weight loss since starting the plan on May 28th: 1.4lbs.
Not a huge difference but I think the weekend and TOTM have set me back a little.
So close to the 180s! Hopefully I'll be there tomorrow or Friday!
