The State of Michigan is under a stay at home order. We can leave our homes to get groceries or medicine, get outdoors to exercise (lots of people going for walks in their neighborhoods) and essential service providers can work. I am an essential service provider. I have been working shorter hours in the office, but have been in the office daily since the order.
I know this will probably seem silly, but I have been having a difficult time staying on my eating plan. I have been craving carbs like crazy. They have always been my comfort food. I have found myself making way too many exceptions to my meal plans!
Over the past week I have managed to gain 4 lbs - mainly from eating foods which were not on my meal plan. I am going to work extra hard to quit telling myself it's ok and I will get back on track later. Today is the day!
So far, so good!
Anyone else having this issue?
