So every night at about 9pm I get very strong carb cravings, and I have not been able to ignore them yet. They are so intense! I can't help but feel I should be able to conquer these cravings because I was able to quit smoking cold turkey 4 months ago. It wasn't easy at all...but I sometimes feel that quitting smoking was way easier than getting fit and losing my excess fat.
I bought hummus yesterday to eat with my carrot sticks, but someone ( we wont mention who) didn't put it in the fridge. I was hoping to snack on that tonight when the urge comes...but I think I will have to go sans hummus. OH well. Carrots are good on their own, I just don't find them satisfying. That's why I love carbs. They make me satisfied faster than other foods, however the fullness feeling does not last long so that usually leads me to eat a whole damn bag of chips....
Ah chips the greatest and yet worst invention. Most people say chocolate is their weakness, but chips are mine. Don't get me wrong I enjoy sweets. But I would much rather have salty chips or crackers. Yesterday when Colin and I were in the grocery store we went into the chip and cracker isle and my heart was racing, i started to salivate all I could think about was how much I wanted a box of crackers. It was exactly the same feeling I had when I wanted or was about to have a cigarette. Crazy! I'm actually addicted to salty food. I always joked about the fact that I was addicted to food, but my reaction to the chip isle last night was a HUGE eye opener for me. Maybe now that I know it's a bigger problem then I had initially thought I can take better care of my cravings.
And you will be happy to know I did not get anything salty. Well that's not true, I got a bag of those Twistos things. It wasn't worth it! they were ok and only 90 cal. but the cost was too much for what you get. Which I guess the same can be said for a regular bag of chips too. I did buy dried cranberries. I'm going to snack on them as well as put them in salads.
