Sugar Cravings Day 4
Tuesday, November 13, 2018
I am noticing a pattern of late night cravings for sugar. I decided that I am going to have 1 piece of dark chocolate in the evening if I crave sugar.
I don't want a bunch of chocolate in my house. So my daughter went to the dollar store and bought a huge box of chocolates, I was seriously upset that she did that. Then I decided that i can't have those because they aren't mine. I threw away the twizzlers since I can't leave them alone. I brought the rest of the sugar babies to the NH for the staff there.
I ate leftover veggie stir fry with a soft boiled egg in it for breakfast.
We had veggie thin crust pizza for supper. I had made a ramen soup for lunch that had veggie broth in it and only 2 oz of Ramen noodles I buy from an Asian food market. It had lots of veggies in it and a soft boiled egg. It was very yummy at 310 cals for 4 cups!! I stayed full for a long time with that. Plus no sugar craving afterward at lunch. I ate 3 cuties oranges after supper. I had a hard time to quit eating the veggie pizza. I was craving sugar within 1/2 hour after eating the pizza so I ate the oranges.
Later around 10 pm I ate 2 Dove dark chocolate promises and was satisfied with that. I went over my 1500 cals by 16 cals.
On a side note, the reason we had Papa Murphys take and bake pizza was because
DH and I went shopping (70 miles away) and got everything for Thanksgiving. We live far from any larger town and Our little hometown store is so expensive! I'm making 4 veggie side dishes this year besides mashed potato and corn. I have lucky #13 guests coming to my house for this. I'm making 2 small turkeys because I like how they cook better. I am making a low sugar pumpkin pie for myself and regular for everyone else and apple pie and chocolate pie for them. I don't like chocolate pie so I will be good with that. I was thinking of trying a sugar free pudding pie for me to try too. I bought some cool whip lite for myself even thought I prefer real whipped cream. I don't really like chemicals disguised as food. I make almost everything from scratch. That is part of my weight problem. I like to cook and I like to eat what I cook.
Note to self~ Be kind to yourself and to others.
