I'm finally posting

I've been doing a 20 minute work-out every night before bed. It's not a lot, but it's something. I've been big time craving chocolate this past week and I keep picking at it. I need to just sit down and have a giant candy bar or something, because the picking here and there isn't satisfying the craving and I'm sure I'm taking in more fat and calories than if I just pigged out once and got over it.

I've been good at throwing away things that I'm full of or don't like instead of feeling like I'm "wasting" it and finishing it even if I don't want it. The other day I bought a natural sugar Pepsi because I was having a rough day and really needing some carbonation. The drink was really gross and I threw half away. I was proud of myself for tossing it since that would have been another 100-something calories and I wasn't getting any enjoyment out of it. Also at Costco, the kids and I had frozen yogurt. I ate half and threw the rest away because I was full. Usually I would just finish it, so it wasn't going to "waste".

Hopefully these little things are adding up???

With all the chocolate cravings you may be low on magnesium. I suggest a cal/mag keeps my cravings in check! :)
