Day 24- Kidnapped by aliens?
Today I had none, zip, zilch zero. I've been re-reading the End to Overeating and I looked at them today and thought "Fat and sugar". I had cherries with me so I snacked on those instead.
Today I won the battle with the chocolates. I had the tacos for dinner but tried something different with the toppings. I grabbed a soup bowl and put in about 2 tablespoons of grated cheese, salsa, about a tablespoon of sour cream (full fat at site) and a whack of chopped tomatos. I mixed it up and then put it on my tacos at the table. I used half of what was in the bowl. Now had I tried to load my tacos it would have been a far different story as the extras are on a sort of salad bar so you use a giant spoon to try to take small amounts.
I did tell myself I could have jello for dessert but I thought of another trick from the Mindless Eating book. I didn't take the jello with me to the table. I told myself to eat dinner first and then go back if I still wanted the jello.
In the interest of full disclosure I did get a few french fries that were next to the tacos but I left some on my plate and it was a small serving to begin with. I didn't go back for the jello and walked out of the kitchen without even going into the pack lunch kitchen (cookie source).
So I did use 3 WP points today but I'm 3 days into my week and I've use 4 WP.
Tonight's activty was treadmill. I went down to 13 intervals and this time on the run I ran at 6.0. Normally I run at 5.4 - 5.5. Wowsers that tired me out and I didn't finish the intervals. So at the end of the day it was 10min running and 27 min brisk walk.
One other victory is after the gym I didn't wander back to the pack lunch kitchen to grab a cookie.
Tomorrow will be interesting as I accidentally volunteered to sell 50/50 tickets at our fun run. So not sure what workout will happen tomorrow. My right knee has been feeling a little off so it's a good thing I'm not taking part in the run/walk (due to selling tickets) as that would be running on gravel roads.
Now Wednesday and Thursday are iffy too, so I need to pay super attention to food and water.
So many mini victories today now just repeat it tomorrow.
