Hey, did you all know I have traps?
I have seen them on other people. I have even been told that I have always had them, but yesterday I actually felt and saw one on me. I had one of those "what the crap is that?" moments when I went to scratch my shoulder, and then I flexed.
I did one of those manly little girl squeals while jumping around. I always wanted traps.
Today was a hungry day. A hungry day is a day where I can eat everything and never be full. I have been doing really good on eating clean and healthy this week. I really have not been tempted to cheat. I have that eye of a tiger focus going. If I didn't have that focus, today would've turned into one of those eat-everything-in-site-and-then-look-for-more kind of days. Days when I would eat breakfast at home, get to work and order a double of biscuits and gravy. Then, I would eat my lunch from home and then order a couple slices of pizza. On the way home, stop in at Wendy's (my former mistress...) and get a couple of succulent fried chicken sandwiches. At home, I would have a double or triple serving of dinner AND then snack all night on chips and soda.

Food is my weakness. I don't think anyone really understands until they have gone through the trash to get the food you just threw away and then eat it. I have thrown away half a box of donuts and then went back for them. Food addiction is real.
The moment I walk into work, it is a battle to not go order more food from the cafeteria. It is a battle not to stop at the drive-thru. I can leave home with all intentions to not get that food, and the next thing I know, I am ordering something.
It is easy for me to find a fitness routine and stick with it. I enjoy it. I crave it. But when I try to eat better, I mourn the loss of pizza, chinese food, and anything else I love to eat. I am an emotional eater. So for me I have to mourn the loss of something I love. I understand it is okay to have free meals, but I was eating those things all the time.
It just takes time, and I am getting there. I think I am almost to the point where these hungry days are not so devastating. I was good today. I didn't cheat. I was healthy. The coolest part about surviving a hungry day is the next day you feel amazing. Then the next hungry day is that much easier and farther in between. Love my healthy living!
How do you make it through those hungry days?
