I succumb to evening cravings.

Wednesday, September 28, 2011

I will admit that I've been doing a good job the past couple of weeks at planning my meals. At least during the week that is, I don't know what happens on weekends. When I go to work each day I pack breakfast, lunch, and two snacks. All perfectly clean meals. But for some reason, when I'm on my way home I want the junkiest, succulent, unhealthy food. Is my body rebelling? My cravings are insane in the evening. I made lunch and dinner for a few days on Sunday so I swore that I was all set. On Monday when the train arrived at 11th st I thought about getting off and getting Thai or Soul Food; I resisted. I got off at my stop and went by 30th st station which houses the same Soul Food eatery. Mmmm. Mac and Cheese. When I crave something I can almost literally taste the food in my mouth. I went by CPK. Again, I resisted. But for whatever reason when I got home I devoured a half bag of tortilla chips (other half devoured on previous day). I didn't even touch the clean dinner in my fridge. Again yesterday, I have a good eating day, but when I got home I just HAD to have Boston Market. And yes I know how to make BM healthier, but I could taste those creamy, 460 calorie sweet potatoes. So I leave the house and head to BM. Mind you, I don't drive, I have to get two buses there, and it's raining. I thought to myself, "I am a true fat azz going thru all of this to get some food." I'm not exactly the nicest person to myself at times. I almost turned back, but didn't. The food was delicious, but I don't think it was worth the damage. I have yet to put the meal in my food tracker. I'm sure that I will kick myself some more. I'm hoping that I'm stronger today and actually eat the good, clean healthy meal that is waiting for me.

    Thanks Adoma for the tips. I'll try to track things before to see if that makes a difference. As for last night, I did have my good dinner...but I also had a cannoli and Haagen-Dazs ice cream. Ugh emoticon

    Oh girl I am soooo with you on this! It's like the clock strikes 8 and I lose my mind! I guess it's just something we need to keep working on. I'm trying either tracking it BEFORE I put it in my mouth, which sometimes (not always!) makes me decide it's just not worth the guilt I'll feel after. OR if you really gotta have it (which is usually the case for me) write it down and say you will have it as an 'indulgence' meal on Friday night (for example), but only if you stick to your goals til then. Hopefully by Friday you won't want it anymore (that's a big 'hopefully' hahaha) but at least it delays it?! I dunno...if you figure something out, let me in on the secret to not succumb ;-)
