My mid week check-in

Tuesday, October 15, 2019

The finding something to do with my hands instead of eating at night has worked so far. I never did clean my room or find my embroidery but I have been reading at night. Also, if the cravings get real bad I find a shower really helps. I think it's the ambient noise. It's not been easy as people have brought in chocolate covered doughnuts, neopolitan ice cream, and a peach cobbler. I have resisted it all. However, my brother in law also brought in lots of lettuce, celery, and yogurt. Somebody else finally brought broccoli. I have discovered I really like broccoli. Having the healthier food options really helps too. I lost a half-pound at my mid-week weigh-in. I had trouble waiting the full week for weigh in so I allowed myself one extra weigh in on Tuesdays. I also learned this week. I do not like info graphics. I won't do them. So on the 28 day challenges that have info graphics, I learned to pop in my favorite workout video instead. As long as I am moving for the required amount of time is what matters to me. I know today was a little sporadic in thought, not enough sleep or coffee, I guess. Be blessed all. Have a wonderful day.

    The late night extra calories really add up for me as well! I like the idea of keeping busy to avoid snacking. Another thing that works for me at times is to either have hot lemon water or save 100 calories for a late night snack like yogurt or a piece of toast if I know that it'll help. Have a great day.

    Thanks for sharing your story. I pass by a break area at work that often holds a few dozen doughnuts and I try to race to my desk where I keep a tin of nuts or other healthy snacks. Good that you found an alternative to infographics that works for you.
