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.
