Well despite feeling quite crappy today through lack of sleep, lack of inspiration, lack of motivation and ...I better stop there as I'm sounding like a misery guts LOL....I actually did the right thing as far as my eating was concerned. This is significant for me right now so I'm patting myself on the back for it. It would have been so easy to seek comfort from crap foods but I knew that at the end of the day "forbidden" food wasnt going to make me feel better, in fact I would feel worse both physically and mentally. So I focussed on eating mainly clean food when I was hungry and WH had to drink on his own at dinner time.

Training has suffered a little as we had an unexpected visitor last night and as I hadnt seen this person for some time I enjoyed sitting down and just chatting away. No training this morning with BS waking too early and then settling back in our bed. I plan to hit the exercise room soon as I have a bit of catching up to do.

I'm slowly getting through "If not dieting" and the more I read the more I feel that Dr Rick has jumped into my head and knows exactly what I'm thinking and feeling about food and diet. Its opening my eyes to a few things that I had conveniently chosen to ignore. I hope it offers some good solution strategies too (or maybe it already has and they just havent sunk in yet). Its a great read nevertheless and I would highly recommend it to anyone who is battling food/diet issues.

So I'm going to wrap up there as I have cleaning up to do, a BS to get off to bed and then some training to blitz through.

Still not feeling great but not as fragile as this morning.

Hope you got to catch up on some more sleep - lack of sleep is the worst thing in terms of motivation I find.

Way to go for staying away from the off-plan food! I use this tactic too "How am I going to feel AFTER I've eaten this crap?" - makes you stop and think anyway!

Hi Magda, my husband has been drinking on his own lately too. Glad you are finding some things to help, and hope you catch up on your sleep soon. Cheers, Charlotte
