When I "cheat" I normally go on a binge that may include a whole bag of Doritos (mmmmmmm Cool Ranch).... followed by a bag of Cadbury mini eggs AND probably finished with a huge bowl of Icecream... with mashed cookies in it....and chocolate chips...... and more doritos if I didn't finish the bad the first time around..... I have a feeling I may cheat a little next week LOL
Again, I can totally relate to you! Are you sure we weren't separated at birth, lol? Although my food choices are different only because I don't keep those you listed in the house, I will go through runs where I just eat one thing after another, going from salty to sweet to salty, to savory, and so on! That's part of the reason I eliminated white flour and sugar this week, because (and I never used to be this way) but seems like since the holidays, once I've had a little, the train starts and I can't stop it. Part of it is stress, I know, and part of it is impulse control, but I also think there's something physiological there with the refined carbs. Although I can just as easily get a run on nuts, homemade wheat bread, raisins, etc., so this is a work in progress for me. I call it "chain-snacking."
So, congrats on making it through your day and your week! You did a great job!
I'll log in at the end of the night; still got a few things on my to-do list. One planned snack left; if I can hold it to that, I'll break even for the week with my average cals at my goal level.
