The PMS blues hit me really hard during the weekend (which is why I haven't blogged in the past few days!) & I survived it and also the unfortunate souls who came into contact with me! I didn't bite any one's head off, even though I felt like it. I didn't alienate my husband or son, they still like me. And I caved into the cravings for only one day without going overboard!
I know I would have not been able to get through it without the help of every one who gave me such helpful tips and encouragement on my last post. Thank you for that! I'm not beating myself up for caving into the cravings. I tried eating lower calorie treats and this time it did not satisfy the taste buds. I just got crankier!
As soon as I put that chocolate treat in my mouth, the nerves were soothed, the muscles were relaxed, the twitches stopped, I was able to smile, and my husband called his attorney to stop the divorce proceedings. All was well.
Other than that, I have gone almost 13 days without overeating, recording my food intake & exercising consistently! I need to stop eating a snack before I go to bed. Even though the snacks is low cal, I know that if I don't stop that, the low cal snacks will one day turn into a high fat, high cal snack! So, starting today no snacking 3 hours before I go to bed!
Food for Thought: "You don't develop courage by being happy in your relationships everyday. You develop it by surviving difficult times and challenging adversity."
