It hasn’t been an easy feat but so far I have been back on track. Under 55 grams of carbs daily since Monday. Tomorrow is my true test…my my goal being under 80 grams of carbs. Can I do it?? I sure hope so. Tis the season for overindulgence. Even if I go over my allotted 80 grams, I can pick myself back up and go back to my desired goal of under 60 grams a day. It isn’t the end of the world. Trying to tell myself this doesn’t always work for me.
Yesterday I was suffering from some really wicked carb cravings to the point where I wanted to cry and yell at someone. I was sick of salad, sick of meat, wanted something of substance to fill me up and not leave me with a “still hungry” feeling. I also craved something sweet and starchy. So to quell my desire, I took some peanut butter (about 2 tbsp) and put a little bit of pancake syrup in it, mixed together and couldn’t even finish it. I figure about 1 tbsp is more than enough to get that sweet tooth kick out of my system. Don’t judge me for using pancake syrup or Skippy PB! It was minimal carbs and at that point I did NOT care. You do what you have to do to get past something like that.
Tomorrow our lunch will be cooked early, and everything will be good to go. I’m supposed to start cooking my pumpkin pie shortly, but haven’t gotten a chance to get to it just yet. Hopefully I will do that soon.
Here’s to staying on track. I hope…
