Hey there! Well, I'm half way through the week and glad I cooked up extra food for my work lunches. It has helped me tremendously when it comes to sticking with this.
Over the past couple of years, every time I tried to lose weight, I'd sabotage myself by not planning ahead. I'd stay up late, get up late in the AM, get ready for work, not have time to eat breakfast or pack my lunch, and then I'd grab some fast food on the way to work. Then later in the evening at work, I'd head up to the cafeteria and pay high prices for fattening food that I knew wasn't good for me (a person can only eat so many salads).
Now, I get to bed a few hours earlier, get up a few hours earlier, make breakfast and sit down to enjoy it. Packing my lunch for work is easy since when I made everything over the weekend, I portioned everything out into containers. Now all I have to do is open up the fridge and grab what I need to head out the door. I'm not hungry, I don't feel panicky about what I'm going to eat, and since I go to work prepared, I'm not influenced by what others are eating (I've always been one of those people who sees someone else eating something and then I have to have some too because it looks so good. Or, I'd obsess about it until I finally got some).
Yesterday I was speaking with my boss (who was eating Hershey Kisses) and it did not bother me one bit. While she was talking, I was standing there having an "ah ha" moment. LOL! In the past, I would have secretly been standing there thinking "ooh Hershey Kisses, I soooo have to get some". LOL! Getting all of the sugar out of my body has really helped. I haven't had any cravings and I have more energy. Not to mention I've been sleeping better too and I feel like I don't have as much "brain fog".
Well, that's all I have for today. I just wanted to stop in and give you a little update before I get ready for work. Have a great remainder of the week. :)
