No Junk Food Challenge: Days 17-19
I am happy to say that I am back on track! I felt so freaking guilty about that burger (why? Who the fuck knows right?) that I don't think I will back out on this challenge again until it is over. I will see it through!
Honestly though, I think the important thing I have learned from all this is paying attention to my eating habits. I was too quick to feed my emotional hunger instead of just paying attention to what was going on in my brain (I think too much) and even my body. The cravings that I get at work are because I am stupid bored and want to fashion a noose and hang myself from a rafter....so to prevent my untimely death, I would run to the candy store and buy some candy. But my all time favourite thing to do on chilly nights was to curl up on the couch with Dave, blankets piled on top of us, watching a movie and eating some sort of junk food item that I craved. Since those nights have been upon us for a while and we have already watched many a movie curled up and cozy, I haven't really missed the junk food part of it. To be honest, I haven't even thought about it.
I also just realized that I haven't had a craving for sugar or junk food in a few days. I didn't even realize it. So there you go, maybe this challenge REALLY IS doing something for me. I think that the real challenge will be afterwards, when I know I can have it all again. I am curious to see if I dive back in there or if I am more wary of the shark infested waters. We shall see.
Only ten more days to go!
