Ugh... this is getting frustrating. I need to try and stay positive and keep going, but I just can't seem to get myself in a good groove. I partially blame winter. It's been so cold and snowy that I haven't really gotten out of the house much. Which means I am not exercising enough and I am way too close to my kitchen all day long. Also, with the snow days I have been craving comfort foods. Homemade chocolate chip cookies, hot chocolate, cake. It's bad.
I can fully admit that I did not do well this week. We went out to eat on Monday and I got the richest piece of peanut butter silk pie. It was so good. And I have also been snacking. I tried to keep busy during all the snow by cleaning and organizing my house. So I tackled my kitchen pantry. I went through all the snacks and checked all the expiration dates. I came across several things that were newly expired or expiring soon, so I made the food. I baked a cinnamon cake and a batch of chocolate pudding. Bad idea.
Needless to say, I gained this week. I gained back everything I lost last week. It's like last week and all my efforts never even happened. But I will do better. I have to do better!
The good news is that I am definitely drinking more water. I have even found myself thirsty at times. It's like my body is now remembering that it needs water and is starting to crave it. One small step, right?
