I have decided to type up a post to keep myself from eating. I have a few calories left for today according to My Fitness Pal, but all I want to eat is junk! And I am sure I don’t have enough calories left for junk. I mean I actually told my husband earlier that I wanted to jump in a big vat of chocolate and eat my way out… I don’t usually get that extreme, but these cravings seem to happen about this time every night. I have stuck to my plan for eating all day, drank all my water, exercised, but then I get on my phone or the computer and there are everybody’s damn pins on Pinterest staring me in the face…. Fried chicken to die for, the world’s best chocolate chip cookies, 100 different ways to make treats with brownies, cake ideas, etc…. And suddenly I have never been more hungry or dying for sweets in my whole life!! I get this tingling on my tongue; sometimes I swear I can actually smell whatever yummy goddness is being pinned and what I feel like is actual genuine hunger. Am I really hungry? Or am I sugar addicted? I know I could go through and unfollow these friends pinboards, but I feel like I should be able to overcome these cravings. I mean someday I’m going to be able to enjoy these foods without worrying about going over a calorie goal, so I can’t just ignore these recipes, right? Ugh… What’s a chocolate craving girl to do??
What do you do to overcome cravings?
