Almost halfway there. Last night I had the WORST craving of my life. It was a doozy. Someone mentioned drinking chocolate milk on a blog, and then out of nowhere Dave said, "I really feel like chocolate milk right now", and BLAM!!! Instant craving. I NEEDED to have chocolate milk. And my brain started it's process of talking me into having it, telling me that it was ok, and that if I felt that strongly about it, well, my body was trying to tell me something and is probably lacking in something or other and it needs it to survive.
I even felt myself starting to whine in my head about how it all was so unfair and this whole thing is stupid, STUPID! I am the only one placing these restrictions on myself, so who gives a shit right? Well, that right there is the devil talking people. And guess what?
I drank WATER instead.
So I won that battle. I was very proud of myself for it too. And honestly? After I had a glass of water, the craving dissipated. Just like that. And I even watched Dave drink a small carton of it too (he's not a jerk, I made him get it. He isn't on the challenge!).
So there you go. No chocolate milk for me, and I am happier for it. Plus, I lost five pounds. BONUS! I wasn't even trying for THAT.
Maybe this really will be worth it.
