And you know the difference... so the key is finding something to get you past those "I'm bored/I'm tired/I'm upset..." moments. Here is a trick I use pretty often - I tell myself, "I just won't have any today, but I can have some tomorrow". Thinking that I only have to hang tough for one day makes it easier to put it off, and chances are by tomorrow, I won't feel the need to give in to the craving any more.
I literally had to sit on my hands at one point today just to stay out of the kitchen. Not because I was hungry, just bored.
I did do a lot of cooking today to prep for the week. I am sticking to my guns on this one. No cheating.
Thanks for all the great advice and support Melissa!!
