I skimped on the breakfast this morning and by 11:30 was dying of hunger and having all those bingey-bingey thoughts. I neglected to take my greek yogurt out of my lunch bag before I put it away, then since I wasn't feeling all that hungry this morning I decided to wait until later to go back to the kitchen (all of 12 feet away) and grab it. Then suddenly it's 10 AM and my tummy is growling but do I either (A) go get the yogurt or (B) eat the banana that is sitting inches away from me? Of course not. So by 11:30, the dying and the bingey thoughts. That's when I made myself sit down and eat the banana. I know better than to eat so little in the mornings. And yet, I did it.
I've also been having sweets, ever since my Burger King incident. Lastly, the past few nights I have been having an extra helping of lasagna instead of taking the time to supplement the one portion with something like a salad or fruit or even a bagel. I have the calories to have the extra lasagna, but it makes me feel overstuffed. Last night I had the two portions of lasagna then made four cookies with the rest of the cookie dough in the fridge. Not only has this bumped me over my calorie goal (not much, just enough) for a few days, but I think it's feeding the sweet-eating behavior. Tonight my goal is to either make chicken (before it goes bad) with rice and veggies or have the lasagna but with a salad on the side and maybe even a bagel.
I went to bed early early last night as I had planned but then could not fall asleep for nearly two hours. I've learned how to keep my brain off when I try to sleep but it kept switching randomly back on. I am feeling like I am getting better but I will keep on with the extra rest. Because I may end up working both days this weekend since I am taking the four day holiday weekend off, I need to make certain my reserves are at full strength to get through ten straight days of work. I need some gym time in there as well.
Well, it's about that time. Hope everyone is having a wonderful hump day!
