I have been wanting Chick-Fil-A for a week or so. I really wanted their breakfast hash browns, and I like their breakfast entrees (Chicken Biscuit or Chicken Burrito).
I gave in this morning, and stopped. Not really a good idea, I know I have a high calorie day planned (dinner out with my friend tonight). But anyway I did.
You know, those hash browns and that biscuit were not as good as I thought I remembered. I may not want/need to eat them again anymore. I guess that was the point of the craving, just to remove it from my list.
This week / weekend is going to be a tough one. We are going out of town with friends, it will be pretty much all eating out. I'll just have to do my best. I am buying myself a reward today -- a set of workout songs that came up on my spark wheel this morning. I hope I can use it to take a brisk walk from the hotel in the morning, get at least a bit of exercise in.
Having just listened to the workout songs, I can't wait to use them to walk -- either around the area of the hotel (if safe enough) or on the treadmill if they have one. Or even just in my room if I have to.
I feel more motivated now knowing that I will be able to get my exercise while I am out of town. I think this may actually be the beginning of a new routine of walking outdoors for me, at least as long as the weather holds. 2996 days ago
See if your hotel has a workout room or at least a treadmill or bike. Also I don't know if it's possible to check out the restaurants that you'll be going to ahead of time to figure out what to get. If not, the half portion trick works. Have a good time! 2996 days ago
I have noticed the same thing. I will have a craving and will resist for a day or two, and when I finally give in it just doesn't taste as good as I anticipated. Soooo true for the Halloween candy, thankfully chocolate just isn't appealing. On to healthier habit and letting go of the mental images of what I used to like. 2996 days ago
