Funny enough, after 3 weeks of no sweets at all, I didn’t devour them. I ate a little bit of all 3 and took the rest home to finish up over the weekend (which I totally did. YUM!). The rest of my sweets craving, which has been torture has finally subsided. I would have thought it would be the opposite – having the donuts would make the craving worse. I really like Linz’ post today on moderation vs. deprivation and think she might be onto something. A little bit of indulgence can probably keep my cravings in check.
We’re still at 100% on no fast food and I’ve done really well with bringing my breakfast 4 days a week. I am looking forward to lifting the french fries ban next week though.
3) Yesterday I wore my Polar all day and seriously learned so much. Not to make myself sound dumb, but in the interest of full honesty, I’ve never really thought of how many calories I burnt just sitting around and how many I burn commuting and walking my dog. It’s so many more than I thought and it’s opened my eyes to my current eating habits and why I feel hungry so much. Anyway, I have a big post about it coming up early next week that breaks down how to calculate your basal metabolic rate and using the Harris Benedict formula to figure out calorie needs. I’m really excited about it.
What’s one thing happening on your Thursday?
