OK, so it's four days later and I haven't dropped from junk food withdrawals. I did have a stinker headache yesterday but I am unsure if that was bought on by withdrawals/detox or the fact that I spent the afternoon sniffing bleach whilst doing house cleaning.
One thing has come to light over the last four days... whilst I may know a bit about healthy eating, after entering a typical days food into Calorie King I now also know that I have a lot of bad habits to change! Skipping breakfast, little to no exercise, huge lunch, 3pm sugar fix, huge dinner and sometimes dessert to top it off.... yikes and triple yikes.
On the bright side I have also used Calorie King to plan my weekly meal plan. When you start comparing a punnet of strawberries to the daily chocolate dose and you can suddenly see which is the better option ( uh, like fruit vs chocolate wasn't an easy thing anyway. But sometimes you need to see the numbers to accept that common fact!)
Speaking of strawberries, that's what I've got for my morning snack today. However, I have to wait until the sales meeting finishes, someone else can man the phones and I can duck off to wash the buggers before consuming them. (the strawberries, not my co-workers)
I'm also wondering.... is four days too quick to notice any difference in weight? I swear this morning when I put my wedding band on it was easier to do so. Usually I have to squish it on and then it's tight as all hell. This morning required no squishing.
It may have been my imagination, but it put me in a great mood for the morning. And anything that puts me in a good mood, is just fine by me. You've got to love a dose of the warm fuzzies!
