I am trying hard to avoid junk food and carbs but today has been a struggle. Shopping for more healthy choices was difficult because I was craving candy, chips, cookies, and bread. It was really hard to make myself resist all of those tempting foods that were all around me. But I did it. Not one high carb food made its way into my cart. On the flip side, I ate so little for breakfast and lunch that I began to feel jittery while I was shopping. I have already entered my dinner and today's snacks and my calorie intake is under 800. Since I am well below my minimum calorie goal of 1200 I might allow myself to eat a portion of the potatoes my daughter is making for dinner. I do not think she realizes how hard it is for me when she brings ice cream into the house right now.
