I did not stick to my 25g Easter chocolate a day yesterday. (I am trying to see typing that as plain and simple honesty. Not to punish myself.) I had far more than 25g. In fact I now have hardly any left. I did share it with my husband (I don't share chocolate!) and it was a lot less than I would have eaten in previous times but still way more than I had planned to.
I know why the sweet munchies got me. I felt like I deserved a reward. My DD has just started new swimming lessons about 1 1/4 miles away. Instead of driving there the children took their bikes and I walked. I had got up and shredded in the morning and then the walk took 45 minutes each way. That's way more exercise in a day than I have done for, um, ever! A lot of that time was spent walking fast to keep up with them. I rewarded myself with what I know best and that was chocolate. I seriously need to get some new rewards! Maybe I'll make myself a star chart. Ha ha :oD No, at the moment I don't know what it's going to be but I can't use food as a reward/comfort/treat etc anymore. That sort of thing is one of the reasons I have got to make this journey in the first place.
One thing I am pleased about, I was thinking on the way back from the swimming that I was quite enjoying the faster pace of walking and that next week I might don my trainers and workout clothes for the journey. You never know I might be tempted to jog some of it. If nothing else it will sure help keep up with my ridiculously fast son on his bicycle. I swear that boy has legs like pistons and has just got a brand new bicycle, no stabilisers (he's only 4). He takes after his Daddy.
What do you do to treat/reward yourself if you used to use food to do it with?
