I had such a wonderful plan for Thanksgiving. And I stuck to it. Up until the point when I started drinking! I didn't even think about the empty calories in the glasses of wine I was drinking until I put away almost 2 bottles! Oy!
On top of all of the empty calories in the wine. Getting a little buzz on threw my inhibitions (and diet) to the wind. Which caused an avalanche of mindless munching! But I am determined to get back on the wagon. I will not let the holiday season beat me up this year!
The biggest issue that I am having right now is carbs. I love them, and they are my biggest downfall. I can't seem to lose weight if I eat too many. And let's face it, they are addicting.
Since I broke from the plan on Thanksgiving, I've been hitting the carbs hard. It might be the addicting factor of them, it might be the chilly overcast weather that is making me crave comfort food. But I made the CHOICE to eat them. So I am making the CHOICE not to eat them (or that much of them).
So here is my plan for the week. I'm going on a low carb "fast" if you will. For the next two days, I am going to be cutting my carb intake until I have the willpower to resist carb-filled sugary treats. Then I will readjust from there. Slowly adding back in whole grains etc. This technique has worked for me in the past, and I'm confident that it will work again. It's nice to see that I CAN do it, and it propels me to more forward once again.
Wish me luck!
