Day four and I've reached my first screw up. This morning at work I was hungry and wanted a mid-morning snack. Usually I have a yogurt, since I keep a few in the break room for times like these. On my way to the break room I passed the fundraising table selling candy bars and stopped in my tracks as soon as I saw a dark chocolate bar. Dark chocolate is my favorite indulgence and my biggest enemy. People have told me time and time again that it's ok because a little bit of dark chocolate is good for you. Oh no, I cannot just eat a little bit. I went back to my desk and enjoyed the entire thing. About 30 seconds after that, I wanted to cry because I had veered off course after 3 days of making positive changes.
After taking time to understand my emotions and why I did this, (I need to learn to control my cravings. I was bored and had it in my mind that I NEEDED dark chocolate. I bet if I got the yogurt I would have forgotten the candy once I had satisfied my hunger)I realized I needed to take it as a learning experience and not derail the progress of the last few days. So far so good. I stuck to whole, fresh, and clean foods for lunch and made plans with a friend to hit the track tonight.
Hoping to make the next three days good ones in order to get back on track.
