Recap of Week 2:
-3.6 lbs total
I definitely did better with the stress, emotional, bored eating. However, I did break my fast on fast food and ice cream. I just needed a cheeseburger sooo badly. The ice cream was part of a malt I had in Seattle when I took my son for a doc appointment. No reason for it, but DAMN it was so freaking good. I haven’t had a malt in years. The calories alone were more than twice my daily allowance, but it was worth it. I did walk for about 2 hours (carrying an 11-month-old the whole time) to help burn some of that off. I did pretty good with the exercising. I love my new gym! I did 20 minutes in the cardio theater and didn’t even notice lol. I was sweaty, but really enjoying the movie. I also did my first ever stint at running on a treadmill for my C25K program. The steady pace did help me to go farther than I do on trails, but I think I do prefer to run outside.
Thinking on the subject of emotional eating seemed to help me curb those cravings caused by emotional, stress, and boredom factors. Other than the milkshake, I actually did pretty decently with the eating last week.
Week 3 Challenge
“This is going to have two parts. Remember it is always optional. Part 1 will be about investigating the cravings that we have that aren’t due to emotional eating. Why do we have a sudden craving for something sweet or salty that just seems to come out of the middle of nowhere? Should we give in to these cravings or suffer through them?
