But it's hard, so hard sometimes. Yet I know I'd be much more energized on a Patsy eating plan vs. Ritz crackers and melted cheese.
My TCOY today--making myself walk in rain with umbrella to grocery store and back [at least 15 minutes each way] ended up backfiring big time. I had breakfast @ 8 and here it was almost 2:30 by the time I was leaving the store, and I hadn't had lunch yet. I was starving. I opened the bag of pretzels and container of hummus I bought and stood there eating it, right after I paid. [I did get some strange looks, but mostly from a woman who is often unfriendly to me to begin with, for other reasons. What can I say. I could not stand out in the rain or sit on the one wet bench with the bag, the hummus, the other groceries and the umbrella. And I couldn't walk home until I ate.] So I cancelled out my good will effort and on top of that, I was cold, wet, tired and stressed the whole walk home, and my arms hurt from carrying the heavy grocery bag. So I stopped at the drugstore on the way and got two Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. Smart thinking. Sometimes, I really don't know if it will be possible to get better at this battle.
I did reclaim some ground by making a healthy dinner.
Right now, I must sleep. Saner, smarter, calmer, brighter days ahead.
