HELP ME HELP ME HELP ME

Have been doing soooo good with my eating for the past week, but now it's 10:00 at night, sitting around by myself while the hubby's farming, and all I want to do is EAT! Bake cookies, inhale ice cream with strawberry jam, popcorn with lots and lots of butter....help me stay strong!

Ok here is my emergency checklist for those situations:
#1 brush your teeth and scrub your tongue too! and make sure to rinse with listerine.
#2 put a pot of water on to boil for tea or hot chocolate or chai or something
#3 take a tylenol Pm and get in your PJS. or any trick that makes your body ready for sleep.
#4 do something spa-like. put on a face mask that dries hard(you cant really open your mouth too well without flakes of clay falling off haha), paint your nails, spend time lotioning your body, pluck your eyebrows etc etc.
Then before you know it a pot of water is bowling and you've forgotten you even put it on... but if you still want to eat then BE CREATIVE.
Think of the lowest calorie things you could put into a smoothie or tea or hot cocoa that would make it interesting and yummy. Want cold? maybe ice and a little milk honey and nutmeg mixed with chai tea? or cocoa powder and some vanilla extract and a bit of cream? or maybe lemons squeezed in with a fruity herbal tea? etc etc. make it into a project. dont think food. think what can you put into a drink...cant put cheese or popcorn or cookies into a drink ... :)
So I realize I sound a bit crazy, but the post felt urgent!hehe and that is my own little crisis kit. stay strong!

Try a treat that doesn't set you back

I know you'll have to wait till the next time you grocery shop, but to be prepared the next time I'll share my "secret". This is my favorite time of the year because blueberries are in season. Dump half a pint in a bowl and throw on a couple spoonfulls of Cool Whip Free. It tastes like your cheating and you're not, the whole thing is only 140 calories. Not a fan of blueberries . . . the same things goes for strawberries or any other favorite. Best to you, hang in there.

What I do is only keep healthy things in the house so even if I go nuts it's with fruit or rice cakes or something like that.

Also when I get to craving stuff I have to focus on what is most important to me. To get slim and healthy or to have whatever my tastebuds are wanting. And in the end it never tastes as good as you think it will and I seem to never be satisfied. So I find it better to go with something healthy.

It's good that you are reaching out, I hope you weather this storm well.
